“CALL ME MAYBE,” THE [FIRST] METAL COVER
Of this I am sure: there are going to be like 10,000 “ironic” metal covers in the wake of this summer’s breakout smash hit, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.” For now I’m ok with that; longtime MetalSucks readers know I’ve got a sugartooth for super-sweet female-fronted pop, and I’m all aboard the “Call Me Maybe” train.
The Henry Maneuver’s “Call Me Maybe” cover is pretty good. It reminds me a lot of Drewsif Stalin’s cover of Katy Perry’s “E.T.” — Henry and Drewsif are actually friends — but it hasn’t got the hilarious Drewsif Stalin headbobs so it loses points. I guess you can look at dude’s fingernail polish, though… almost as funny.
