fun. deliver an acoustic rendition of Carly Rae Jepsen’s ’Call Me Maybe.’
This is, yet again, one of those time when we are shocked the internet hasn’t exploded/broken/spontaneously combusted, etc. “We Are Young” masterminds fun. have covered Carly Rae Jepsen’s smash hit “Call Me Maybe,” and it’s really effing good. But you probably could have guessed that.

During a stopover at Dutch radio outlet 3FM, fun. revealed that they, too, have been bitten by the Carly Rae Jepsen bug and had prepared a surprisingly moving acoustic rendition of the sugary sweet pop hit. Unlike Katy Perry’s “Call Me Maybe” cover, fun. stripped the pop song down by using only a guitar and keyboards. Lead singer Nate Ruess‘ gritty vocals instill the song with a bit more street cred than the original, but it’s still hard to overlook the fact that he’s singing lyrics like, “Your stare was holdin’/Ripped jeans, skin was showin.'”Nevertheless, fun. did a great job making the song their own, and perhaps even introduced it to a more mature demographic. Actually, who are we kidding? Even 90-year-olds are raging to “Call Me Maybe.”
