|The title's in pink so you know it's the deluxe version.|
|The song also inspired a number of disturbing memes.|
Afterwards, Carly decided to take a break to be Cinderella. No, I'm not kidding, she literally appeared in the Broadway version of Cinderella for three months.
|To be fair, she's kind of a perfect fit for the role (read: very white).|
So, did all that effort pay off? Let's look track by track and review all 15 of the songs on the deluxe version. But also, yes, it did.
|I legitimately have nothing funny to say about this, I just really like this cover.|
|She looks like a 16 year old gay boy here, and I unironically love it.|
|I'm having fun listening to your album too, Carly :)|
|When that guy who thinks your friends waves to you and you have to act like you care.|
|I tried googling "carly rae jepsen sad" and this was the most convincing picture I could find.|
|To separate the standard songs from the deluxe songs, here's a fun clip art image.|

Still, the biggest problem is that for an album that literally screams "emotion," there's a distinct lack of that in the delivery of these songs. Carly, to be honest, just isn't very good at emoting in her voice. When you're listening to a song or two, that's not that big of a deal, but after an entire album, it does diminish how much you can actually connect with her as a persona. So where does that leave us? An insanely polished, catchy, and quality pop album that can feel distant at times. While this isn't album of the year, I do want to reiterate that the album most likely has the song of the year on it.
Seriously, I could've just spent this entire article singing the praises of "Run Away With Me" but instead, let me just leave you with the music video.
Oh! And a number out of 10. Can't forget about that.
+ "Run Away With Me", "I Really Like You", "Let's Get Lost", "Favourite Colour"
- "Boy Problems", "Your Type", "I Didn't Just Come Here to Dance"
