call me maybe

It's Friday! I'm so excited Friday is here, because I've known all week what song I wanted to share. I'm completely obsessed with Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" at the moment. It totally takes me back to college and early post college summers when I would go dancing with my girls. We always had one song we would request over and over and "Call Me Maybe" would definitely be our summer request if we were all still in the same town.

As for sharing a video, several different groups like the Abercrombie & Fitch models, the Miami Dolphin Cheerleaders and the US Military all lip-synced to the song in their own versions of the video. However, my favorite by far is Jimmy Fallon and The Roots singing with Carly Rae Jepsen. The inclusion of a toy xylophone was pure brilliance. I hope you enjoy! Have a great weekend!
