After spending nine weeks at the top of the charts, Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" has finally been knocked down a notch... by Justin Bieber's pride and joy, Carly Rae Jepsen. Her hit song "Call Me Maybe" has managed to lodge itself into enough brains to launch it to the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Hot 100 with 3.3 digital downloads and 108 million YouTube views.

Jepsen isn't new to the music industry, but she's certainly new to fame. The 26-year-old singer-songwriter got her start in 2007 when she got third place on "Canadian Idol," and released her debut album, "Tug of War," in 2008. But she didn't get much air time until fellow Canadian Justin Bieber started tweeting about her latest single, "Call Me Maybe," off her 2012 "Curiosity" EP. The song's catchy hook practically made her career over night. Do you dig the song? (Listen at your own risk: This jam will be in your head all day long.)

    Sorry but EFF this song and EFF it all the way to the fiery brimstone pits beneath the earth of which it came. Along with "Boyfriend" by Justina Beaver.

    THESE songs I hear every damn day on the radio, polluting the sound waves with their noise. Luckily with THIS song it's easy to make up joke lyrics to laugh at it while enduring it!

    call me maybe joke

    The best "cover" version is definitely by the Cimonelli sisters ft. MattyB, neither of whom I had heard of before... As a retiree, I rarely listen to teen music, but this is a real catchy tune. And the Fallon/CRJ video is fun to watch.... Maybe that's where I first heard it.

    Oh BTW..... Why SodaHead do you continue to use the Flash video version instead of HTML-5, MP4, even MOV ?? You lose a potential 66 million iDevice (iPad, etc) users by being too lazy to convert or test/search for a more universal version. Test your posts with an iPad already !!!!

    I put yes because it's catchy and I find myself singing it. I wouldn't listen to it on Spotify or have it on my phone but if I heard it I wouldn't complain. Or maybe I would if I was in a bad mood, as I normally hate pop music.

    Horrible song unless you are a teenage girl at the age of 14. It was offensive to my ears.

    I don't call this music. It's doggerel set to a beat—like rap—it is not music. Trite, simple-minded, sophomoric. It requires no talent to play or sing it.

    OK, so I'm an old lady and this type of music is obviously not aimed at my demographic... but what's the difference between this and 'Friday'? Both are spritely little tunes sung by pretty, just-barely-teenaged looking girls, and yet this one is cool and that one was reviled by everyone. I don't get it (but I guess I'm not supposed to!)

    "3.3 digital downloads"? LMAO! Who downloaded only a third of it?

    No, it's hideous pre-digested flash-in-the-pan crap; record companies cashing in on an attention span that can be measured in nanoseconds. Utter tripe, and Depsycho is absolutely right: it sounds just like every other song on "pop" pablum radio these days, including "Friday".

    Call Me Maybe is indeed a catchy song, but it freaks me out everytime.

    It's obviously pretty cheesy and trite, but I think it's also cute and catchy -- in a "bubblegum pop" kinda way.

    It is catchy...and I just need to hear it enough times to get it out of my system....than I will hate it. This isn't really a good song, so as soon as it is played enough it will go away.

    I don't know why, I just cannot stand this song. The lyrics don't even make sense. "Before you came into my life, I missed you so bad" Unless it's something I'm not fully understanding, but that's my opinion. I will admit, the music video is funny though.
