Lately I’ve been hearing a lot of songs that I think have a great beat, and I enjoy what lyrics I can understand. When I get the chance to look them up on YouTube to see if I can find an official video of the song I like to watch the video, and sometimes look for funny parodies of the video. Today was the first time I saw the original video of “call me maybe” and I have to say that during most of the video I felt a kinship with the fictional young lady in the video, fawning over a good-looking young man. It brought back memories of my own youth, the secret crushes that I had on the good looking guys in school. And I had to both feel sorry for and laugh at the ending where it turns out that the young man that was the object of the crush was more interested in a different person that had no interest at all in him. Such is life, isn’t it?
