Dan Deacon Creates Weird Version of Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe’
Remember in day camp when you would sing 'Row, Row, Row Your Boat' in a round and everybody would lose their place during the "merrily, merrily" portion? Well, electronic musician/prankster Dan Deacon has taken that approach to create, depending on your view, either the best version of Carly Rae Jepsen's 'Call Me Maybe' you've ever heard or the worst.
Titled 'Call Me Maybe Acapella 147 Times Exponentially Layered,' Deacon took the runaway smash hit of the summer and, approximately every three-and-a-half seconds, superimposed the song, from the beginning, on top of itself. By the 1:30 mark, the song is virtually unrecognizable apart from the "So here's my number, call me maybe" hook. Eventually even that gets swallowed up in the sea of noise.
According to Deacon's tweet, the mix was created for a compilation album comprised of 43 covers, remixes and reinterpretations of 'Call Me Maybe.' You can buy the song, and the album, from Mabson Enterprises' Bandcamp page for as little as $1.
Scientists are working on a theory that suggests that listening to Deacon's cover is the only way to get the original version of 'Call Me Maybe' out of your head.
