"Dear You" was Carly Rae Jepsen's first love song. Written when she was 17 for her first prom date, it began as a letter, but when she read it back to herself, she heard a cadence and a melody: "We were younger than our age, very shy." Jepsen told The Observer
: "We were slow-movers. It was a big deal to hang out, share songs and have a kiss."
