Did you know? MuuMuse is now a full-fledged Carly Rae Jepsen stan site. It’s all Carly, all the time ’round these parts. Anyone want to be a moderator for the I Didn’t Just Come Here To Chat forum? Also need a curator for the Take A Picture gallery, and maybe a relationship expert for the Boy Problems column. Thanks!
Anyway, a brief recap: E•MO•TION is The Best, “Run Away With Me” is (maybe) the Song Of The Year, and “Warm Blood” is beyond. Also, please play Japan-only bonus track “Never Get To Hold You” at my funeral — but more on that for another time.
Know what else is good? “Making The Most Of The Night,” co-penned by some unknown Australian singer-songwriter named Sia Furler. (Sia? Good luck trying to make it in the industry with that name, sis!)
But for real tho: “Making” is yet another shining highlight from the LP, and Sia and her iconic bob are, of course, an undeniable force driving the song’s greatness: Those incredible melodies in the verses (“Baby, I’m speeding and red lights I’ll run…”) and that joy ride of a chorus, which propels through the speakers like a sudden stomp on the gas pedal, could only come from the prolific pop penner.
The song also fits nicely with the rest of the midnight sheen of E•MO•TION: Like “Run Away With Me,” the late night getaway pulses forth with a thrilling, leave-the-world-behind kind of glee, and the earnest delivery that Carly Rae Jepsen does best behind the wheel.
Forget all your troubles and let Carly be your cute, shining savior.
Oh, also…THE SINGLE ARTWORK IS FLAWLESS ONCE AGAIN.
“I know you’ve had a rough time / But here I come to hijack you…”
“Making The Most Of The Night” was released on August 7. (iTunes)
