I’d say that Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe will be top of the charts these summer months. I’d place money (if I had any) on it following a neat fun./Gotye type sequence whereby a consistent trickle of stunts propells (or encourages) it to number one (a Glee sequence, Superbowl appearance and a viral cover and Glee sequence respectively.) They’re sleeper hits, or about as much as a sleep hit with which you can charge a pop song. Call Me Maybe has Bieber buzz, Canadian buzz, and surely Glee buzz by the end of season three? Make that happen, RIB. Anyway, here’s a Carly Rae remix for your Saturday – and please don’t assume I mean this is for partying – it’s for all-weathers. Equal amounts useful for a night in with a pizza alone or a night out in Shoreditch. I won’t tell you into which category I fall.
Popdust recently compiled a list of Call Me Maybe tracks, which are all pretty great but all lack a certain something. Turns out that something was Daft Punk – a proven successful combination – and Billy Webber (whose website is fairly comprehensive, so check that out) has done just that, by adding One More Time to the Canadian songstress’ hit. There are neat Jenny From The Block and Pumped Up Kids remixes there, too but this feels slightly more current (Pumped Up Kids is no longer current! Tempus fugit, you guys.) Enjoy your Saturdays, everyone:
