Musical Monday: Carly Rae Jepsen

Monday, June 4, 2012

"Call Me Maybe" seems to be the song of the summer with my girls and their friends.  I am even hearing it as ringtones!!!  Every.  Single.  Day.

But the girls prefer Justin Beiber's video featuring Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale.  Big surprise!

Carly Ray and Justin are both Canadian, and it reminds me of show I watched on MTV while in college (boy am I giving away my age).  It was the first program on MTV called Remote Control and it was a game show similar to Jeopardy with categories, and the contestants were sitting in recliners. There was a hilarious category called "Dead or Canadian," and the contestants were told the name of a celebrity and they had to guess whether they were dead or Canadian.  Please don't be mad at me, my sweet Canadian friends!  ;P

So what are you listening to today?  Join Miss Angie @ My So-Called Chaos and share!!!  :D

{I really need to get off the computer and do my chores now.}

Until next time...

  1. That was cute! Thanks for participating!

  2. My kids are loving the new Pitbull song from the Men in Black video, they love it!

  3. I am so glad I don't have a tween daughter now...the Bieber thing would drive me crazy. Loved dead or Canadian LOL Right now I listen to talk radio...I'm showing my age too


  4. i love this song there is something very catchy about it and love seeing these young kids having fun being kids

  5. I've been laughing my head off for the past 3 hours over that "Dead or Canadian" thing - I periodically ask my kids or the dog if they are dead or Canadian. So far Canadian is winning. I've never heard of it before, but then again I'm out of the loop when it comes to TV and always have been. Thanks for the chuckle.

  6. Oh, remember when MTV played music or had music related shows!? Music was somehow missing from my day did that happen?

  7. So happy I don't have to listen to Justin Bieber. :)

  8. I'll pull this up on Itunes! I love all music...especially if it's got a good beat!

  9. Ricki Jill,
    I appreciate keeping current. :-) This is a cute and lively wonder youngsters enjoy.

  10. So glad I don't have to do the Bieber thing too, I may have to whatever, but I know the girls love him, don't get it, but it's all good. That song, does have a good beat though....

  11. Just FYI this has been in my head all week. I'm not sure I think it's cute at all anymore lol
