Song About A Post Breakup Meeting.

by David

Okay, my wife and I were speaking while the Gotye song 'Somebody That I Used To Know' was playing. We got onto the fact that both of us remember a song from the 80's, or maybe the early 90's (sorry for the leak into another decade), which was either Punk or Post-Punk-ish, and contained the phrase, 'somebody that I used to know'. We both specifically remember that they male singer and his ex meet at a party or bar, he goes over to her to say, 'hi', and after he does the ex and her current boyfriend walk off and the singer hears the BF ask who the singer is, and the ex replies, 'oh, that's just somebody that I used to know.' This really gnawing at us as we can't google results from our wording, other than the Gotye song.
