Tay Zonday Brings a Fitting End to the ‘Call Me Maybe’ Meme

Tay Zonday Brings a Fitting End to the 'Call Me Maybe' Meme

If you haven’t experienced SOMETHING of the ‘Call Me Maybe’ meme, which takes the first line of the ultra-popular Carly Rae Jepson song and twists it around … you might need to come out from the bunker and tune into this whole ‘internet’ thing.

The actual line is “Hey, I just met you … and this is crazy … but here’s my number, so call me maybe”. One of my favorites is also relevent to recent events, saying “Hey, I just met you … and this is crazy … but here’s my bath salts, your face is tasty”.

But Tay Zonday – you know, the ‘Chocolate Rain’ guy we wrote about in 2007 – has pretty much ended the entire thing by producing a version that has killed the original for me. Singing in his signature deep bass register with his highly personable performance on video, he redefines the song and ‘does a Weird Al’ in that I can only think of his version now.

Well … just check it out!

I have loved technology for as long as I can remember - and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
