I didn't think she could do it. Call Me Maybe is so catchy, has a gay video hook and has been blasted to shit by Facebook memes and not-quite-there Twitter jokes. Even Abercrombie and Fitch have forced their square-headed till bitches to base a YouTube commercial for them around it. (Beats getting fisted in a Bret Easton Ellis novel).
She's done it. Here it is. Carly Rae Jepsen has a new song:
It's summery, it's catchy, it's called Good Time. Obviously not as good as Kelis Good Stuff. It sounds a bit like Call Me Maybe. It's a collaboration with Owl City. I don't know their music, I think I just told myself three years ago Owl City are like Metro and Scouting For Girls and everything else you hear in the supermarket.
It won't have the online resonance of Call Me Maybe, but Good Time isn't a bad song. It's a bit Katy Perry. It's a bit Clare's Accessories. It's a good time. Sort of.
What do you think?
