Video: Carly Rae Jepsen – ‘Call Me Maybe’ (Acoustic)

Sometimes pop stars get it right. This is one of those times. The studio version of “Call Me Maybe,” a 2011 Canadian pop hit that’s exploding stateside right now, is as catchy and driving as anything in the Katy Perry ouevre — this is even better. If Jepsen can harness this kind of breathy tenderness again, Taylor Swift will have to make some room on the country-pop throne. (Also: Jepsen is 26, not 17. It’s never too late!)
