Carley Rae Jepson releases radio-ready debut

She’s had the No.1 song on the charts, the No. 1 song in your hearts, and the No. 1 song that you cannot get out of your head.  And know, Carley Rae Jepsen has a whole album full of anthems that are bound to be just as potent.

Of course, we have all heard the popular ones like “Good Time” (with Owl City), and “Call Me Maybe,” which is more than likely going to still be circulating strong in the heads of zombies and roaches that survived the nuclear warfare of Armageddon.

But let’s talk about the new pop gems that appear in this record, specifically, her new single.

Now, I don’t care who the artist is – anyone who puts some shimmering synths over a big 80s hook and massive electric guitar riffs has a No. 1 hit in my eyes, which is just what the Carly Rae Jepson did with her new single, “This Kiss”.

Normally, I don’t listen to music that was created before I was born, but if this is how all music sounds from the 80s then I have some digging to do.  The song itself was an obvious release to appeal to the masses of teenagers returning to school this fall and all of the extracurricular activities that accompany. And I love it.
