‘Call Me Maybe’ and ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’ Get the Ultimate Mash-Up

'Call Me Maybe' and 'Somebody That I Used to Know' Mashup

Given the runaway success of Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe’ and Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used to Know,’ it makes sense the two would meet in an unholy mashup. Thanks to the indie pop duo Pomplamoose, we now have exactly that. These two starkly different songs shouldn’t work together, but somehow they do.

The mash-up uses a skillful blend of lyrics and music from both songs, resulting in an ultra-infectious dance tune. Even the songs’ contrasting subject matter — Jepsen’s tune is about love at first sight and Gotye’s is a bitter breakup anthem — don’t detract from the mashup’s supreme catchiness.

If you were looking to escape from either (or both) of these songs, we’re sorry to say this mashup won’t let you. In fact, you’ll probably find yourself humming along before the video is even done. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
