Carly Rae Jepsen ft Owl City - 'Good Time'
So nondescript it's not worth describingMore on Various Artists
You want that new single to transcend mere nebulous hummability? Then you need a hook worthy of captioning endless JPEGs of surprised-looking household animals. Having already touched the face of God with ‘Call Me Maybe’, it’s a long way down for docile Canadian Carly Rae Jepsen, whose follow-up is so nondescript I literally can’t be bothered to describe it. The words ‘Featuring Owl City’ say more than a paragraph of adjectives ever could.
