Now this is crazy.

Carly Rae Jespsen’s infectious pop song “Call Me Maybe” — which was recently covered by one Colin Powell — possibly outlines all the details of the European economic crisis.

According to Matthew O’Brien over at The Atlantic, the saccharinely sweet tune perfectly fleshes out how Germany, Italy and Greece are being totally screwed by the euro, the currency that is used by 17 countries within the eurozone.

With inanely predictable lyrics such as, “I trade my soul for a wish, pennies and dimes for a kiss,” and the perplexing, “Before you came into my life I missed you so bad,” somehow the song penned for the Justin Bieber set is the perfect narrative for the multinational financial crisis.

In conclusion, this is how O’Brien suggests the eurozone leaders solve this pesky macroeconomic problem that we won’t even attempt to explain here in the entertainment section of The Daily Caller:

“‘Call Me Maybe'” is really a deep meditation on the nature and ironies of the euro crisis. So here’s a modest proposal. Let’s lock up Angela Merkel et. al. in a room playing “Call Me Maybe” on repeat. They can’t leave until they absorb Ms. Jepsen’s insight and reach some of kind of deal. Or go crazy.
