Call Me Maybe

"Call Me Maybe"

I threw a wish in the well,
Don't ask me, I'll never tell
I looked to you as it fell,
And now you're in my way

I'd trade my soul for a wish,
Pennies and dimes for a kiss
I wasn't looking for this,
But now you're in my way

Your stare was holding,
Ripped jeans, skin was showing
Hot night, wind was blowing
Where do you think you're going, Baby?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

It's hard to look right,
At you baby,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

And all the other boys,
Try to chase me,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

You took your time with the call,
I took no time with the fall
You gave me nothing at all,
But still, you're in my way

I beg, and borrow and steal
Have foresight and it's real
I didn't know I would feel it,
But it's in my way

Your stare was holding
Ripped jeans, skin was showing
Hot night, wind was blowing
Where you think you're going, Baby?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

It's hard to look right,
At you baby,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

And all the other boys,
Try to chase me,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so, so bad

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that
I missed you so, so bad

It's hard to look right,
At you baby,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

And all the other boys,
Try to chase me,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so, so bad

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that

So call me, maybe?
artist: Carly Rae Jepson
songwriter: Carly Rae Jepsen and Tavish Crowe
date released: 2011 by Carly Rae Jepsen

Carly Rae Jepsen (born November 21, 1985) is a Canadian recording artist and singer-songwriter from the idyllic town of Mission, British Columbia. In 2007, she placed third in the fifth season of Canadian Idol, and was a part of the Canadian Idol Top 3 concert tour.

Shortly after competing on Canadian Idol, she released her debut album Tug of War on September 30, 2008. Three years later, she released a new single, titled "Call Me Maybe" which met with stellar success with a YouTube video. The popular song went viral getting over 300 million views and reaching the Number One spot on both the US Billboard and Canadian Hot 100. The single also went to the number one spot in 19 other countries. Jepsen signed with Interscope Records in 2012. Jepsen's musical influences include James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen, Van Halen, and Justin Bieber.

So why is this song so infectiously catchy? This is what ABC News says:

"Call me Maybe is hook upon hook upon hook. There is no element to this song that is not super-catchy," said Jepsen's manager, Jonathan Simkin. The melody is catchy. Those synth string lines are crazy catchy. There is not a single aspect of this song that does not draw the listener in.

The 3-minute and 13-second song...has many elements that composers know make a pop hit and musicologists have identified as signatures of sing-along hits."
