Not many songs become cultural phenomenons. Nevertheless, that's what Canadian singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen released in 2012, and it was called "Call Me Maybe." It went from sleeper song in Canada to worldwide, titanic hit almost overnight. "Call Me Maybe" preceded Carly's second album and her first big pop outing called Kiss. The record benefitted from Carly's beginnings as a folk singer because each song was masterfully written yet had a bubblegum undercurrent that made it infectious, sugary pop.
"I Really Like You" is the perfect reintroduction to Carly's brand. It cranks up the bubblegum factor until you're chewing on the whole pack: brilliant lyrics that capture the feeling of a crush and the early stages of romance, with an undeniable chorus that is instantly lodges itself in your head.
