Carly Rae Jepsen – “Cut to the Feeling”
Carly Rae Jepsen is pop music in its purest form. Emotion was the album that Katy Perry and Lady Gaga wanted—and are still trying desperately—to make. It’s smart, precinct pop music that would sound like laboratory bubblegum if it wasn’t so plugged into emerging tastes. Jepsen’s “Cut to the Feeling” is among the dozens of tracks reportedly cut from Emotion. Like virtually every song on that album, “Cut to the Feeling” is boundlessly fun. Just let loose to it—jump on your bed in your underwear, be your own ’80s rom-com montage, hang through the sunroof of a limo. Just let Jepsen—who must have been genetically engineered to be a pop star—transport you to a world without problems.
