Gotye Doesn't Care If People Call Him a One-Hit Wonder

It would put him in good company...
Gotye says that he doesn't care whether people think he'll never achieve another hit or not. Gotye spoke with NME and said that if all he was known for was "Somebody That I Used To Know," he'd be okay with that.
"If I was to become a one-hit-wonder, I'd be in some good company," he said. "I would take a sort of perverse pleasure if a certain part of the public think of me as a one-hit-wonder," he says. If I go on to never make any music that is as commercially successful as this and that means that there's a divide between some people's perception of me in the pop sphere versus me and the actual music that I've made, and people actually taking the time to listen to the rest of it, then I think that's actually kind of interesting."
