4. Carly Rae Jepsen "Call Me Maybe"
Producer: Josh Ramsay
Label: 604, Schoolboy, Interscope
The minute those first string chords start up, you know what song's going down and you can feel the entire venue about to go collectively insane. Then Carly Rae Jepsen begins: "Hey, I just met you," and it's a wrap.
"Call Me Maybe" is the greatest sing-along song of the year because absolutely everyone knows the lyrics. It's likely there were even a few times you heard "Call Me Maybe" while out and were like, "Turn this shit off," but then you'd start mobbing with a group of girls and give in to its twisted pleasures. We're all victims.
