12. Gotye, "Somebody That I Used to Know." Overplayed as it is dinky as it is catchy, Gotye's song may be one-hit wonder material, but that one hit was HUGE!

Cool video, too. Often imitated, never duplicated.

The cast of one of Fox's biggest hits is about to go all Carly Rae Jepsen on us.

On the Glee Season 4 premiere - which will take viewers to New York City and feature Kate Hudson as a strict dance instructor who gives Lea Michele's Rachel Berry a hard time - a series of cast members will be the latest to cover "Call Me Maybe."

Unlike some other videos, of course, there's no lip synching here. Just the vocal stylings of Kevin McHale, Darren Criss and many others. Do they do the track justice? Take a listen and decide for yourself:

The Kelly Clarkson is Totally Awesome Tour continued at the Mixtape Festival in Hershey, Pennsylvania on Saturday night.

Perhaps you've heard of it.

Catwoman on violin. Bane on drums. And an injured Bruce Wayne dancing around to the tune of "Call Me Maybe."

It's just another video based on the Carly Rae Jepsen smash that recently set a record for most weeks on top of the Billboard 200.

Watch now to see an actor dressed as Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character in The Dark Knight Rises, as he serenades a wounded Wayne and attempts to inspire him to don his iconic black cape once again.

Just try not to tap your feet against the beat as you do so:

Ryan Lochte has officially made it.

Not because this 28-year old American defeated Michael Phelps yesterday in the 400 Individual Medley, but because he's the subject of a new "Call Me Maybe" parody, which focuses on the rivalry between these two Olympic swimmers and whose lyrics include:

Strange pecs, taking bong hits/Stay smooth, shave your armpits/Where you think you're swimming, Mikey?

Hey, I'm not Michael, don't eat at Subway/But this is my year, so call me Lochte/It's hard to swim right, by Phelps baby/But this is my year, so call me Lochte.

Earlier in the week, another video went viral in which Lochte and Phelps joined members of the swim team in lip syncing to Carly Rae Jepsen's smash hit.

You know what they say, a team that covers "Call Me Maybe" together wins together.

At least that what the United States Olympic Swim Team is hoping.

That group - led by Gold Medal hopefuls Ryan Lochte, Michael Phelps and Missy Franklin - joined the chorus of those who have lip synched to the Carly Rae Jepsen single this week, releasing a fun video that shows folks getting into the act on a bus, on a plane and even in the pool... underwater style!

It's a fun version of the track. And, yes ladies, Lochte gets shirtless around the one-minute mark. Watch now!
