Carly Rae Jepsen – “Call Me, Maybe”
Disclaimer: If you Google “Call Me Maybe chopped and screwed” there are no real results. One Carly Rae/Jay-Z mashup, and a few awful chop jobs, but nothing worth posting. Instead, I just slowed it down for you, because I’m bad at chopping but good at screwing (puns!).
“Call Me, Maybe” isn’t going anywhere. If you hate it, I’m sorry – it’s a fact. I think everyone has heard the track at least once now; the frenetic strings, Jepsen’s infectious, girlish vocals, the pounding four-on-the-flour under the chorus. It’s overpoweringly catchy: so simple, so effective. You might think your mind is your own, but this song will get stuck in there against your will and prove you wrong.
Slowed down, the track takes on a new life. If you didn’t get why so many people were going bonkers for the track originally, the slowing down of those strings and the pitching down of the vocals might help. That bass drum at the chorus still goes. It’s a weird change but it works.
