They don't play Carly Rae Jepsen on the radio enough

If you haven't heard the song 'Call Me Maybe' by Carly Rae Jepsen, you have been living under a rock. The song is played everywhere, and is a chart topping success. For the life of me I can't understand why. I hate it. It has to be one of the worst ever pop songs. It's as horrible as hell, yet for some reason it is popular, and despite my passionate dislike for the song, I still wake up with the tune stuck in my head.

And for those who don't know what I am talking about hear is the song...

Sure, the girl can sing, but her voice just isn't my cup of tea, and neither are her songs.

I wouldn't hate it so much if I didn't have to endure it everywhere I go. I hear it when I'm taking a pee in the public toilets of a shopping center. I hear it at social gatherings. I hear it in change rooms. I hear it blasting from bystanders headphones. I hear people humming it while raiding the clearance rack at Target. I hear it thumping through the speakers of the car next to me at traffic lights.

The song gets played on the radio 437 times a day. I hear it when I drive to work and I hear it when drive home from work without fail. I change the station, only to hear "Before you came into my life, I missed you so bad, I missed you so, so, bad..."

It's insane.

I risk dislocating my shoulder to turn it off. It's up there with the songs that make me want to stab myself in the ear with a fork. I would rather watch paint dry, or hear nails repeatedly scratched down a chalkboard, than listen to it.

The song has even inspired many memes. These are just a few...

(based on the television show Downton Abbey)

I'm not the only one being driven stark raving mad from all the hype...

See, even Batman has had enough of this 'Call Me Maybe' crap.

Do you despise the song, too? If you don't we can't be friends, so don't call me maybe.

What pop song do you hate?

lmao you made me laugh with
"I change the station, only to hear "Before you came into my life, I missed you so bad, I missed you so, so, bad..."

HAHA sooo true!!
i hated it at first but now i dont mind it. it reminds me of driving to work...ever since i started my new job, i spend 2 hours a day driving and am guaranteed to hear it on the radio at least once during my drive!
and i somehow know all the words without looking up the lyrics O.o
hmm the song that i always have to turn off when it plays on the radio is that song that goes "im out of touch, im outta love, ill pick u up when you're getting down" i think its lego house? it pisses me off!
also that florence and the machine song, its really slow and depressing and i always change the station when it comes on.

or any maroon 5 song - they are so catchy. but annoying. i got them moves like jagger, i got them moves like jagger, i got them mooOOoooOOOooves like jagger

@piffle: Yes! So glad some one agrees!

@krissy: LOL! Oh shame on you haha. I guess there are worse songs. This one just really grates on my nerves. I have the radio on for most of the day, so I hear it come on an awful lot.

Oh Ed sherin haha! I don't mind that song, although, I must say I'm a bit over it now. I like to play that Florence song when I'm really sad, but it's not a blast in the car song, that's for sure!

Oh I love maroon 5! I agree, moves like jagger can get a bit annoying, but I love their new song one more night. I like to blast it really loud in the car, although at the traffic lights it's kinda embarassing singing along to ... Trying to tell you no, but my body keeps on telling you yes Trying to tell you stop, but your lipstick got me so out of breath I'd be waking up, in the morning probably hating myself
And i'd be waking up, feeling sastified but guilty as hell
