Why was Gotye's No. 1 unexpected? After it reached No. 1 in Australia, then Germany and then UK, it was clear that it would also reach No. 1 in the US...
I'm sure there are plenty of examples of songs reaching the top in Australia and the UK, but failing to do so in the US...
- Kylie Minogue // Can't Get You Out Of My Head
- Kings of Leon // Sex On Fire
- Jennifer Lopez // On The Floor
- Iyaz // Replay
- Jason Derulo // In My Head
- Taio Cruz // Dynamite
- Timbaland // The Way I Are
- Sandi Thom // I Wish I Was a Punkrocker
...to name a few.
