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!

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

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 .

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
