Carly Rae Jepsen, Kelly Clarkson and The Killers make the best Choruses of the 21st Century list

Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe tops new Greatest Choruses list

The chorus of Carly Rae Jepsen’s catchy Call Me Maybe hit has been named the best of the new millennium in a new music survey.

Experts have named their top 100 Greatest Choruses of the 21st Century list, featuring hits since 2000 to current day, and Carly’s smash-hit 2012 song tops the countdown.

So how do we know that this is the best chorus of the 21st century? Well, maybe because Call Me Maybe spent nine weeks on top of the Hot 100, infiltrated every corner of pop culture from Sesame Street to the U.S. Olympic Swim Team, and made a girl-next-door pop superhero out of singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen…

“All in all, the best part of the Call Me Maybe chorus was how it ended up summarizing our own feelings about the song – the giddiness, the awkward excitement, and the feeling of how we never knew how much we needed a song like it in our lives until it showed up.”

Call Me Maybe beats Kelly Clarkson’s Since U Been Gone to the top spot, while The Killers’ Mr. Brightside, Outkast’s Ms. Jackson, and The Middle by Jimmy Eat World round out the top five.

Personally we would have loved to have seen a bit of One Direction, Gaga or Little Mix make the top 10!
