To coin (not coin quote but still) a phrase: here we… here we… here we fucking go!!!

This is proper dare-to-dream territory.

'Cut To The Feeling', the song which Carly Rae Jepsen consigned to the Jeppo Song Mountain when she compiled the 'E•MO•TION' album, the song WHICH WAS THEN LEFT ON THE REJECT HEAP when she whacked out that album's accom­pa­ny­ing b-side col­lec­tion, the song which Jeppo didn't even release as an inter­na­tional iTunes bonus track, the song which she basically left for dead in a bucket on the hard shoulder of the pop super­high­way, and the song which has only now been released on the soundtrack of an extremely bad looking film, has been serviced to UK radio.

[also]Radio 1's Greg James has made it his Song Of The Week. This means it gets one play every single day this week.

Which also means that even if no other DJ ever plays this song in the UK, it will have achieved almost half a dozen plays on national UK radio.

This is what old Reitho was talking about back in the day, isn't it.

  • INFORM: Carly Rae Jepsen has recorded 2017's song of the summer and that song is now available to stream.
  • EDUCATE: This is how you create the perfect pop song, or at least the near-perfect pop song because if we're all honest the pre-chorus could probably do with a bit of work.
  • ENTERTAIN: This song is enter­tain­ing, yes, but actually it also redefines all pre­vi­ously accepted bound­ar­ies of enter­tain­ment in the sense that on hearing 'Cut To The Feeling' it imme­di­ately becomes clear that enter­tain­ment has no bound­ar­ies what­so­ever and is in fact totally limitless.

This is def­in­itely in the Top 2 perceived underdog surprise triumphs of the last seven days.
