- Per tweet, people stand through the whole thing, from opening chord to closing greeting.
Glad I wore comfy shoes.
- There are far more people in the world than you’d think who know the words to every Carly Rae Jepsen song.
The whole thing was a grand singalong. I myself found that I knew the lyrics better than I realized. [I mean, I do have a few of her albums. I didn’t just randomly show up at this performance.]
- She does not end the show with “Call Me Maybe”.
She just throws it in there as song five.
- Nor does she end with “I Really Like You” (song 13).
The honour goes to: “Cut to the Feeling”.
- Per Jean, this was the greatest crowd to watch. He especially enjoyed as they evolved from the tentative, awkward standing to totally in-the-groove dancing along.
The overwhelming feeling was warmth. The Carly Rae Jepsen fan base might be small, but it’s passionate.
- We were among the oldest people there.
Although… Guess that wasn’t really a surprise.
So this was a September 18 concert at Centre in the Square, and it was a hoot. The opening act was Ralph, whom I hadn’t heard of before, but she was also rather fun. Cameras were allowed, but we didn’t bring one, so I’ll feature a photo from Centre in the Square:
- No Drug Like Me
- Run Away With Me
- Call Me Maybe
- Now That I Found You
- Gimmie Love
- Feels Right
- Want You in My Room
- Too Much
- I Really Like You
- Everything He Needs
- Boy Problems
- Party for One
- Let’s Get Lost
- Cut to the Feeling

If you live in certain parts of the world — Hong Kong, Egypt, Brunei Darussalam etc — you’ll already be able to buy the distinctly above average new ‘long player’, ‘Emotion’, by the cool brigade’s current favourite popstar, Carly Rae Jepsen. If you live in the UK, of course, you have another month to wait. Obviously there are ways and means when it comes to finding these things on the www, but let’s forget about that for a minute and pretend the staggered release schedule is an actual thing people adhere to.
