Without a doubt, this song became a phenomena that took over the airwaves like a storm when it debuted. It was overly-played and had become almost unbearable to listen to especially for someone who’s prone to LSS (last song syndrome) because of its sheer popularity among the younger crowd. I admit that it was on my playlist for a few months before it lost its luster after hearing toddlers dancing and attempting to sing this in their babyish language.
Annoyance aside, it is a feel good song. And because I want to give the original artist a fair start-up against a cover I stumbled upon, I’m giving you an acoustic version of the song by Carly Rae Jepsen. (Click on the image to watch/listen to the track.)
