Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe
Sure, it might be the sugariest, poppiest, almost overly sweet thing you'll have heard all year, but there's something so unashamedly carefree about Call Me Maybe that you just want to dive into its world and never leave. Because in Carly Rae Jepsen's world, POP is the order of the day and Call Me Maybe - a kind of Diana Vickers meets Disney princess gem of a song - is frankly awesome.
It's kooky to just the right degree, and touts a hook of such coquetish flirtiness, tripping off those little synth-string stabs, that we want to down a gallon of fizzy drink and go out dancing. In a way, Call Me Maybe's chief joy is it just exists in its own little world, able to charm its way onto the Radio 1 playlist where anything else this pop would never get a look in. What with Canadian Idol shooting Jepsen to fame, it just leaves you asking, when is X Factor going to produce someone like this?
After all, I just met you, and this is crazy, but we think we're in love already. Carly Rae Jepsen, will you call us... maybe?
