How to make ‘Call Me Maybe’ stop

Analysts have studied “Call Me Maybe” throughout 2012 in attempt to discover its possible deeper meaning. Last week, two Jewish musicians attempted to decode the lyrics on Twitter, when Maroon 5 member Adam Levine and rapper Mac Miller shared a brief, but enlightening conversation.


Countless parodies have flooded Youtube, including one earlier this week from Sesame Street, in which the Cookie Monster shares his rendition of “Share It Maybe.”
