Listen: Rita Ora covers ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’

Rita Ora has covered Gotye's number one hit 'Somebody That I Used to Know'.

The singer has covered Gotye's song as part of her Live Lounge performance for BBC Radio One.

Ora's version is an acoustic version using simple harmonies and an acoustic guitar.

Rita Ora sounds great on the cover, but we're not convinced by the male singer's voice around the harmony lines. The top end of his voice starts to strain and become unbearably screechy around the high notes.
