The Call Me Maybe/Payphone Mashup is Acoustically Excellent

Perhaps the top two summer smashes of the 2012 season, ‘Call Me Maybe’ by Carly Rae Jepsen and ‘Payphone’ by Maroon 5, have been mixed together by Jessica Jarrell and James Alan to create the Call Me Maybe/Payphone mash-up. The surprisingly awesome acoustic cover plays on the theme the two songs share of being related to phones and waiting on someone to call.

The great voices of the two singers covering the songs adds an interesting touch to the two highly stylized songs. The ability for Jarrell and Alan to combine the songs in an acoustic way is an impressive feat. Call Me Maybe, in fact, was originally meant to be a folk song. The iTunes singles have been of prominence on the music charts and radio for months now.
