Be sure to check out the section in our Episode Guide devoted to the music for each episode of Season 5. To see it, go to the Season 5 Episode Guide: Music. This guide is updated weekly with the songs featured in each episode after it airs.

Below are the songs from the eighth episode, “Somebody That I Used to Know,” which aired last Sunday, July 29, 2012. We guessed correctly this week on the music speculation for this episode with our choice of Elliott Smith, although it was highly expected to be the Goyte song.

Read the post about how the Elliott Smith version got chosen over the Goyte song.

    So glad they went with something besides the ubiquitous Gotye song for this episode. Elliott Smith ftw!
