Not only do we love that Carly got the chance to put her spin on Cyndi's timeless hit, but it's also pretty admirable how the "Call Me Maybe" singer continues to show her appreciation for artists who came before her, even if they're not musicians. If you'll recall, Tom Hanks was the unlikely star of her "I Really Like You" video, which honestly, still kind of confuses us. Like, when did Tom become so unbelievably good at being an almost-pop star? Who knows, but we can still appreciate Carly teaming up with a legendary actor for one of the most memorable music videos of the year.
Hopefully, collaborating with other veteran artists marks a trend for the singer, who's gearing up to release her third album E·MO·TION, which according to her description, will be somewhat of a musical rebirth of the '80s.
We're totally down for this musical voyage back in time, just as long as Carly doesn't try to bring back those awful '80s hairstyles.
