Random song: “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae JepsenPosted: May 27, 2012
Okay, I know these random song posts are usually reserved for older songs, but I have had this track stuck in my head for days.
Its also caused a bit of disagreement with my sisters because they don’t get why I freaking love this song.
Here’s the thing, there is nothing more enjoyable in life than a well done pop song. Every week there are tons of songs released and most of them are just bland, by the numbers stuff or downright awful, but, every now and then an awesome one comes along.
And for me, this is one of those.
Its got a phenomenally catchy chorus and the kind of simple cheeriness that puts a stupid smile on your face. I can’t hear it without smiling and, if alone, doing a bit of a shuffle to it.
Yes, its not a game changer, but its a gem of a pop song, and Jepsen does a good job on it.
It helps that it has a quite sweet little video, where Jepsen is simply adorable.
And its a pop song that you could maybe even use as a chat up line.
Anyway, I think my sister’s fail to realise the charm of this simple little song, and I’m going to set up my stall now- this will definitely be in my 2012 top 10.
I also really like this video of people’s cover versions, especially the girl on the accordion. Thank the gods that YouTube wasn’t so big during my youth or I suspect there’d be videos of me busting moves to S Club 7 or Britney
Any thoughts? You know what to do. BETEO
