Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe is song of summer 2012
Jepsen makes appearances around the globe thanks to the success of 2012’s song of the summer, “Call Me, Maybe.” Billboard says the 26-year-old Canadian’s infectious pop song about infatuation love topped its “Songs of Summer” chart. The list annually ranks the overall performance of hit songs on the Billboard Hot 100 between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
Landing at No. 2 was Maroon 5’s “Payphone,” featuring Wiz Khalifa. Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know,” featuring Kimbra, Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake” and Ellie Goulding’s “Lights” round out the top five.
“Call Me Maybe” has already netted Jepsen a Teen Choice Award, and the video is up for the best new artist moonman trophy at Thursday night’s MTV Video Music Awards.
Move over ‘Song of Summer’—the ‘Song of Fall’ is here! Contenders for “Song of the Fall” include tunes by Maroon 5, Katy Perry and Bieber. The songs in a parallel early-September spot are: Maroon 5′s “One More Night”, Ellie Goulding’s “Lights”, fun.’s “Some Nights”, Neon Trees’ “Everybody Talks”, Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake”, Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Good Time” and Justin Bieber’s “As Long As You Love Me,” featuring Big Sean.
“Call Me Maybe” had already been on the charts for about a dozen weeks by summer’s official start, but many of the above have already clocked many months more on the chart and likely won’t make it to playlists for Halloween parties.
