We think Rita’s voice sounds lovely here, even though she’s oversinging the song with too many vocal runs. Ultimately though, the pop-song-of-the-mo is no longer Gotye’s single, which was so April 2012 — now it’s obviously Carly Rae Jepsen‘s chart-topping “Call Me Maybe”. So do that one next, maybe? We know it’s sure to be superior to Collin Powell’s tuneless cover.
