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..."
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?
