The internet giveth and the internet taketh away. For those of us who still can’t get over Carly Rae Jepsen’s perfect pop album E·MO·TION — clunky release or not — here’s a couple outtakes from it floating around fan forums. IF you’re like me, and nothing, I really mean nothing, can shake your love for her, then fall into “Sweet Impossible Love” and “Wildflowers” below. Yes, it’s clear why they didn’t make the cut, but they’re still better than most of what passes for mainstream pop these days (What an anti-poptimist sentiment what’s gotten into me??). I’m sure they’ll be gone soon, but thanks to my favorite internet sleuth James Rettig for the tip. Oh and when they’re gone, click here to listen to her gorgeous Christmas cover.
E·MO·TION is out now. Get it here if you foolishly haven’t listened yet.
