Carly Rae Jepsen
Run Away With Me
I think the most stunning pop record of the year goes to Carly Rae Jepsen’s Emotion. She treats us better than what Taylor Swift did with her last year’s 1989. I mean I would not expect that this 80s-infused album will turn out so much better than every pop record that is released this year, far more superior than her last effort, Kiss, which was released in 2012 ago.
“Run Away With Me” opens the album, and this is such a trenchant opening track. I am not trying to hyperbolize that “Run Away With Me” is probably the best pop song of the year. It is somehow opulent in melody and instruments, making “Run Away With Me” a complete and comprehensive pop song. Who knows imbuing your song with a saxophone can induce something amazing like this? I have some suspicion, though, that Jepsen possesses some secret formula to make a hit pop song. The lyrics are simple and modest and it sounds like a song for elopement, but the beat and Jepsen vocal’s when she twists her voice are amazing, and that’s why this song is the perfect summer jam.
