I REALLY (REALLY) WANT YOU TO LIKE ME: Carly Rae Jepsen returns with earbender “I Really Like You”

If you thought Carly Rae Jepsen had her only moment in the spotlight with “Call Me Maybe,” you may want to give her latest a listen. The blisteringly catchy “I Really Like You” was co-written by Peter Svensson, who wrote “Lovefool” with his band the Cardigans, and Jepsen really captures that pop sound that crosses the boundaries of 80s and early 90s. “Lyrically, it’s about that time in a relationship when it’s too soon to say ‘I love you,’ but you’re well past, ‘I like you’ and you’re at the ‘I really, really like you’ stage,” Jepsen says of the song, which really really really really really really wants you to sing along by the time she gets to the chorus. I know you don’t think it is cool to fall hook, line and sinker for a song like this, but get out of your head and go full Taylor Swift on this one. I really really think you’ll be happy with the decision, at least until radio gets hold of the song and plays it into oblivion. And they will.
