I first heard Carly Rae Jepsen’s “I Really Like You” a few weeks and like “Call Me Maybe” I found it to be immediately catchy in the best pop song kind of way. Today the video for the song was released and it made me love it even more. It features Tom Hanks delightfully lip syncing the song, and it made the song even better.
“Call Me, Maybe” was definitively the song of the summer a few years ago and despite it being on the radio every other second at the time I never tired of it and I still enjoy it every time I hear it. Hopefully the same stays true for “I Really Like You”. Carly Rae Jepsen certainly knows her catchy pop singles.
My mind was kind of blown the other day when someone pointed out that she is 29 years old. I seriously thought she was in her early 20s at this point. Today I saw someone tweet something about hoping that she never stops releasing pop songs no matter how old she gets. They’re on board for a new pop single from her every year until she’s 80. I wholeheartedly agree. Do yourself a favor and take a minute to watch the video and listen to “I Really LIke You” before it’s everywhere and you can’t escape it.
