There is only one song that has been covered to with an inch of it's life this year more than Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" and that would be Carly Rae Jepsen's bubbly and impossibly catchy "Call Me Maybe". It has been covered by every man and his dog (literally) and with half of Youtube's videos at the moment having "Call Me Maybe" in the title, how do you find the good covers? Well let us do the hard work for you kids! Here for your viewing and listening pleasure are the Top 5 "Call Me Maybe" covers. Did we get your favourite?
The one question that this cover bring to mind, a question that sent us barking mad, was simply this - how the hell can a dog call another dog anyway? But then we remembered this guy. All good. Carry on pooch.

Sure these guys might want to work on a catchier band name rather than relying on their law firm-esque names, but if you like your covers slightly nerdy and ridiculousy catchy then these New Yorkers have got you covered.

This UK kid has soul by the pound. He jumped into the BBC Studios to record this beatiful rendition. And now I want to play the cello.
Even New York indie hispeter darlings can have fun with Carly Rae's bubbly pop hit. They slowed it down a tad, but it is still as adorable as the original.

How do you make the best "Call Me Maybe" Youtube cover? Take one comedian and late night television host, one revered hip hop group and add kids instruments. Oh it also helps if you get Carly Rae on vocal and triangle duties too. This is pure win, I mean Questlove rocks a kazoo solo at the end. Game over!
