I always seem to associate certain songs with particular times in my life and this summer will be the summer of Call Me Maybe. From the kids lip-synching it in their bedrooms to belting it out in the car and bopping along to it in the grocery store aisles, it’s a little hard to escape uber-poppy tune by Carly Rae Jepsen that is absolutely everywhere.
Rather than turning it off, putting in the earplugs, and screaming and running every time it comes on, I’m embracing the kids’ love of the song. I’ll crank it up when we’re in the car and sing along, knowing full well the looks I might be getting from other drivers when they pass by.
The kids haven’t seen the original video above but they love watching the creative video parodies on YouTube. Some of our favorites include seeing our friends from Litzy Public Relations provide a peek into their offices as they use it as a recruitment video (just don’t really call them!) and Cookie Monster encouraging friends to share.
Our kids probably won’t be watching this one but even the Abercrombie & Fitch guys have gotten into the act.
What is the one song that you can’t resist belting out when it comes on in the car? Will it always transport you back to this moment in time?
