YMMV: Carly Rae Jepsen

  • Actually Pretty Catchy: Much of Call Me Maybe's Memetic Mutation stemmed from people in disbelief over how much they don't hate the song as much as they felt they should have.
  • Accidental Innuendo: "Curiosity" delivers the line "don't call me up just so I can please you".
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: "I'm pregnant." "Oooookay..." "Just kidding."
  • Ear Worm:
    • "Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy! But here's my number, so" AAARRRGGGHHH GET THE FRICK OUT OF MY HEAD
    • "I REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY LIKE YOU!"
    • "Good Time" was intentionally made as such. We don't even have to try~! It's always a good time~!
    • The surprise rave chorus in "Tonight I'm Getting Over You".
  • Even Better Sequel: With songs like "I Really Like You", "All That" and the title track, E•MO•TION already looks to be this.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: "I'll trade my soul for a wish..."
  • Magnum Opus: On the notoriously stuffy Rate Your Music, E•MO•TION has a very high 3.68 rating, which is very good for a modern pop release.
  • Memetic Mutation: Lampshaded:
    "I don’t think I’ve seen all of [the parodies], but I’ve seen enough to be pretty blown away. I saw the Cookie Monster one the other day. Sesame Street, man. It doesn’t get any better than that!”
    • The "I Really Like You" video, in which Tom Hanks lip-syncs the song.
  • Older Than They Think: People who only know her from "Call Me Maybe" would be very surprised to learn that her first album (Tug of War) was released in 2008.
  • Retroactive Recognition: After the success of "Call Me Maybe", some radio stations chose to ride on her newfound fame by playing "Tug of War". Cue people's jaws dropping when they recognize the song from a few years ago and realize, "Holy shit, that was Carly Rae Jepsen!?".
  • Signature Song:
    Hey, I just met you
    And this is crazy
    OF COURSE HER SIGNATURE SONG
    Is "Call Me Maybe"
