Carly Rae Jepsen

Today’s post is short and sweet.  I realized last week that Carly Rae Jepsen is a peculiar name for a pop star, and it is indeed. We don’t know much else about the lady, except she hails from Mission, British Columbia, Canada (near the great towns of Chilliwack and Coquitlam), and probably wrote the most infectious pop song of the year. So comment, maybe.

    Being an old fart who prefers classical, jazz, and oldies, I haven’t followed pop music since the 70’s. But with that name she should be a country singer–or maybe even bluegrass. Is she from the Ozarks? 😉

    Yay! A Canadian funny name, plus, this is the theme song for our team in Corporate World! We all stop what we’re doing and have a dance party when it comes on. …Did I mention I work with a team of boys? Carly’s just that good.

      It’s totally that awesome. I’m hooked on this song, and I’m really not much of a modern pop fan. I’m not sure why, but I absolutely love her expression between 0:25 and 0:27 of this video. It strikes me as an “I’m perfectly capable of laughing at myself” Canadian facial expression. Subtle but awesome.

        I had to go back and watch the video (again) after your comment, and you’re right, it’s a classic look! See, also: laughing at herself at 2:38. LOVE.

      Wow! To be able to have that as your song is pretty impressive!

    You’re right, it’s a catchy song. Video too.

  6. Thanks for sharing the video. Fun!

    • Dave says:

      Glad to share it! I figure if I share it with enough people, maybe it will get stuck in their heads as well and I won’t have to bear the burden of the 24/7 “Call Me Maybe” loop I’ve been experiencing lately.

    Wait. Dave! Have we talked about this? Did you know that I was BORN in Chilliwack? And lived in [Port] Coquitlam?! Is there some sort of prize for having such a perfect combination of funniness? I am also mildly obsessed with Carly Rae, so this whole thing just made my week. Merci.
