    'Somebody That I Used to Know' by Goyte has an odd, '80s vibe to it, but that does not mean that I did not like it. Quite the opposite actually. The song is different, and slowly lured me in. The video is just as strange, but definitely enjoyable.

After all, a two-term president will have led their nation for a significant percentage of their lives. That's boring. Isn't it time for a transformation?
