Off-Ramp host John Rabe covers CarlyRae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe. Jonathan Benn/KPCC

Rabbi, Rabies, Raimi ... the curse of being named Rabe (pronounced RAY-bee) has followed me my whole life. Now, I speak out about my suffering in "Call Me Rabe," which, if not the best "Call Me Maybe" parody on the web, is certainly the shortest.

Now, please, make this video viral.

Meantime, I'm hard at work on next next version...

This song is stuck in my head.
It makes me wish I were dead.
And it won't go away ...

It starts with that 4/4 beat.
Then I start tapping my feet.
I run out into the street.
It will not go away...

The beat it is growin'
My front teeth are showin'
No peace I am knowin'
Can't you stop it ... maybe?
