Reminds me of "The Macarena": a song from another country that takes over America (as well as the rest of the world) that no one understands, except for the hook. But I think I was only in pre-school (or kindergarten) when that song came out. Now I can fully appreciate a novelty hit
well unlike Macarena, Gangnam Style is actually about something. It's a satiric look at hipsters in a recently trendy part of Seoul. Not that it matters too much to those of us who don't speak Korean, but I think it's cool that it sort of has a 'message'

If you look at the Oct 6 video from the live show in Seoul, I think he's looking a little thinner. Having to do that dance everyday now that he's performing everywhere is surely burning a lot of calories!

It is currently on top (most popular) but not of all time.

Re: Your take on the Gangnam Style song

Who's at the top for all time?

I am not sure if it has been discussed here but the whole swag of Gangnam style comes from the fact this is a very posh and rich district in South Korea (I'd presume in Seoul) which is why it's called Gangnam style.

Oppa is meant to be a way in which young ladies in Korea address older guys (but not that much older) and shows affection. Basically, if you're 25-28, you'd like to be called that by 21-25 girls. Having read this, the song makes a lot more sense.

Actually, the song is mocking/parodying the Gangnam/nouveau riche style

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: Your take on the Gangnam Style song

I love how this song is so massively popular and many (if not most) people don't know what it's really about.

Well, yeah. I didn't say it's not a parody. The version with Hyuna is even better where she sings like Pikachu .

I just saw this guy performing on the Australian X factor. I would love if they get him to do a performance for the AO .

I wasn't really sure what you were trying to say, too vague

That's the point, if it's catchy it doesn't matter. Plenty of English songs many non-native speakers have no clue about, also French, German, etc
