It’s an understatement to say that we’re obsessed with the song Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen in this office. So obsessed we almost renamed the song Call Me Definitely (Sorry for that #DadJoke). Some genius out there in the Internet world decided that the only thing missing from this incredibly catchy pop song is cowbell.
Then again, I think it’s fair to say that every song can use a little more cowbell. It’s one of the few SNL jokes that never gets old. But maybe that’s because I hear “more cowbell” and just picture Will Ferrell’s bare midriff hanging out of his shirt. Also fun fact, for years I never knew Blue Oyster Cult was a real band, I thought it was a totally random made-up name for the skit.
Seriously, listen to the updated song. I really think the addition of cowbell adds something very special to the sound.
