    Since Raserisk and Maxim are covering the unknown and independent, thought I would give a shout out to the unknown but immensely popular [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


    Say what you like about the song/vid/phenom - the crowd is going nuts!!!





    "Gangnam Style" (Korean: 강남스타일, IPA: [kaŋnam sɯtʰail]) is a single by South Korean rapper PSY. The song was released on July 15, 2012, as the lead single of his sixth studio album PSY 6 (Six Rules), Part 1. "Gangnam Style" debuted at number one on the Gaon Chart, the national record chart of South Korea. As of October 23, 2012, the music video has been viewed over 530 million times on YouTube, and is the site's third most watched video and most watched K-pop video.

    Its music video has become a source of parodies and reaction videos by many different groups including The Oregon Duck, midshipmen from the United States Naval Academy, and the North Korean government.PSY has brought the "Gangnam Style" dance to various locations such as Saturday Night Live, Dodger Stadium, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Samsung commercials

    "Gangnam Style", a Korean neologism that refers to a lifestyle associated with the Gangnam district of Seoul, went viral in August 2012 and has since influenced popular culture. It is also considered by some to be a world wide phenomenon, and has been praised for its catchy beat and PSY's amusing dance moves in the music video and during live performances. On September 17, the song was nominated for Best Video at the upcoming 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards to be held in Frankfurt, Germany. On September 20, 2012, "Gangnam Style" was recognized by Guinness World Records as the most "liked" video in YouTube history

    Both are dance-based novelty one hit wonders, and I hated the Macarena...but I don't mind this.


    For me, I would rather see this guy get his 15 minutes of fame rather than any tv idol/X factor wannabe (apologies to those who enjoy those shows...good tv but just not for me)

    I'm generous enough to include all of the above in my disapproval Laughing

    It boggles the mind why such an enormous crowd would come out (and apparently enjoy themselves) to such a bland song. Maybe the studio recording (which I haven't heard) has something more to it?

    Just to put it in context (and make the annoyance complete), it was the original video that drove the song. I assumed everyone had seen it, but then realised Y probably hasn't

    ...and seeing the vid won't change his mind [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]




    btw, this whole thread is proof that popularity has nothing to do with good taste[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    I will admit that I did see that 'dude' on the Today Show performing live and showing them how the dance is done.

    I actually like the studio recording a lot better! Laughing
    True - not original, but I see/hear the attraction now Cool

    So now my taste gets a bit worse again, does that makes me less of an old git?
    Does that mean all old gits have good taste?

    I wonder what Entropy will be like in 2040?, moreover what will we be like?. scared

    Another small question, speaking of age, at what age should a member self-ban themselves, where it just becomes just too embarrassing to post about bodily complaints and complaints in general.
