Carly Raeloaded: The Rae-Up - WINNER

AND WE'RE BACK.

Alright, we've done this before. I'm not gonna take you out to dinner when I know you'll go all the way regardless, so let's skip the formalities and get straight to the fucking. The fucking music, that is.

...but to recap if you're just joining us:

Carly Rae Jepsen, the favo(u)rite of the critics, the princess of New York, Queen of Pazz & Jop, Empress of Canada, future Dame, released the album of the millennium (meaning the last two thousand years, not just since 2000) last year, bringing with it a whole new legion of fans who have propelled her to indie darling status (despite the fact that she is managed by Scooter Braun and signed to a massive major label). PopJustice - the site, the forum, all of it - wet itself with excitement over this flagrant display of aural brilliance.

A perfectly timed rate arrived in September to celebrate the latest addition to Carly's absolutely sensational discography, and allow us to rank every song she's recorded, on the scale of "pretty great" to "jesus fucking Christ I had hair this morning but now it's all gone because this is greatest song of ALL FUCKING TIME."

Then we (and by 'we' I certainly don't mean 'me' because we all know this shit would NOT have happened under my watch) got less than halfway through the damn thing before a certain someone was spirited away by Giant Pandas, Dodos and Unicorns to The Year of Magical Dicking. The scores vanished faster than the careers of anyone Carly competed against on Canadian Idol.

Enter moi.

We have some big songs left and they ain't gonna rate themselves, and we're starting fresh because I ain't got no data or spreadsheet from the first incarnation of this rate. Not only that, during our little holiday hiatus, Her Highness put out two more songs. We will be rating everything that was NOT rated the first time, and that list is as follows.
