Music Monday; 'Call Me Maybe'

Its been described at the perfect pop song, compared against early songs of Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears. Yep, I'm talking about 'Call Me Maybe' by Carly Rae Jepsen and if you haven't heard it already you really need to. Its such a great song and I've been singing it all week. I personally think it is one of the best songs to come to the Pop world.

The crazy thing is that is was released in Canada in  September 2011 yet has only just bagged number 1 in the UK. This is  probably due to the fact that international pop stars Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez tweeted about, gaining her a record deal through Schoolboy records of which she then released the single through them in the United States. She then made her US TV debut on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, yet again boosting the amount of single purchases

The music video for 'Call Me Maybe' is one of the funniest I have seen. It is basically about Carly Rae having a crush on her neighbour. She watches him and her friends push her to get his attention. Whilst Carly and bandmates are practicing the song the neighbour seems to be enjoying it, much to Carly Rae's joy. But theres a twist, Check out the video here:

Probably the main reason many people found out about this song, including myself is because of a viral video featuring Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale, Big Time Rush and friends. The video is just  fun and crazy, as the pop stars have a crazy 'rave' to the song. And it has almost double the amount of views as the original video- crazy stuff. It also features a close shave of a Bieber & Gomez kiss. Oooh, check it out here:
