Single Review: I Really Like You by Carly Rae Jepsen
I have been away from the blog for a couple weeks, and in my absence some big pop music events occurred, namely two big album releases and one big single. I'll talk about the albums soon, but right now let's chat about Carly Rae Jepsen's "I Really Like You." I really, really, really like it. (How many bloggers and reviewers have made that joke?) Continuing to work with the 80s bubble gum format that brought Jepsen to the mainstream, she has another ear-worm on her hands. It's chorus is a five-car pile-up of "really"s and the hook works. Not to mention, Jepsen's sweet, earnest voice over a retro beat provides the perfect energy for a pop tune.
