Call Me Maybe Resurrected As a 1920’s-Style Hit

By: Josh Wolford - July 24, 2013

Last year, any click you made on the internet was a risky click – you risked that the link your buddy was trying to share would lead you directly to some cover of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.”

Thankfully, YouTube has sobered up and has moved on to other endeavors. The “Call Me Maybe” covers have lessened in frequency. But that doesn’t mean that there can’t be a great new cover of one of the biggest hits of 2012. Take this version, which re-imagines the track as a 1927 hit.

This gem comes from Scott Bradlee, who you may remember as the guy who brought you this incredible Gershwin/Queen mashup earlier this year.

    They should use their talents to write original songs rather than covering pop culture crap.

      or they can use their talents to perform that which they’d like to perform. Besides, I don’t see why something is objectively bad entirely because a lot of people enjoy it.

    I truly like it better than the original, good job! Plus the singer is a hot little firecracker too!
