That Psy song is so good. I didn't get it at first.

It is funny to see how that song whether you like it or not gets people moving. It has been a long time since we had a tune that just makes you smile and want to dance.

Can somebody tell me, since I don't really pay attention to these things, is this "dance" craze nearly over or is just beginning?

I heard this song discussed on NPR and I loved it. Then I saw video of the AMA mashup and I really loved it. And then I watched the official video and I exploded into little tiny pieces.

I love that meterosexual little Korean man! I want to take him home with me to my house. Let your freak flag fly!

I liked it. I can still do the '2 Legit, 2 Legit 2 Quit' hand signs.

How is it brilliant? I have nothing against the song or PSY. It's catchy, I guess, like Call Me Maybe, but how is it brilliant? I would actually like to know, I'm not being an asshole.

by Anonymousreply 4211/19/2012

I second r42. I'm admittedly a music snob who doesn't "get" current pop music, but I'd like to know what people think makes this song (which to me sounds like every other dance song, only in Korean) so brilliant.

by Anonymousreply 4311/20/2012

That was great, thanks OP!

R43, you're not a snob. You're a tone-deaf moron, if you think this sounds like every other dance song. Seriously.

"I love how everyone in the crowd is totally into it."

That's because they're all teenage Korean girls whose bleak sordid lives promise either factory labor or prostitution.

Prince who?

by Anonymousreply 4711/20/2012

I'm happy for PSY and think it's awesome that finally an Asian artist had a major breakthrough in the US and European music markets. I'd rather him than another talentless whitey hack (ahem Ke$ha). "Gangnam Style" has no substance but the beat and dance are catchy, moreso than many other shit songs out now.

Good moment with PSY to dance with MC Hammer and it looked MUCH better than when Vadge had him do a cameo at her concert last week.

by Anonymousreply 4811/20/2012

PSY was happily looking at his future as a gimmicky has-been.

Actually, it has a lot of substance. It's a sly critique of Korean consumer culture and class.

Yes, what an apt link you provided, R51. An article in the far rightwing Washington Times, the property of deceased cult leader Sun Myung Moon.

by Anonymousreply 5311/20/2012

It's not a sly dig at anyone R51. Stop trying to make the song into something it's not. PSY is the son of a multi millionaire and grew up in Gangnam. There is no 'layer' to the song. It's just shit, really.

It sounds rather like "It's like that" by Run DMC vs Jason Nevins to me.

It's a fucking FUN song. Nothing more. Some of you tired old queens need to lighten up. We have the Middle East killing babies in their beds, Weather wiping out neighborhoods. What the hell is so wrong about a song that just makes peoiple happy for a moment? Go back to your Sondheim cast albums and let the rest play.

[bold]Gangnam Style, Dissected: The Subversive Message Within South Korea's Music Video Sensation[/bold]

[quote]Park Jaesang: "Human society is so hollow, and even while filming I felt pathetic. Each frame by frame was hollow," he sighs, apparently deadly serious. It's a jarring moment to see the musician drop his clownish demeanor and reveal the darker feelings behind this lighthearted-seeming song.

Beneath the catchy dance beat and hilarious scenes of Seoul's poshest neighborhood, there might be a subtle message about wealth, class, and value in South Korean society.

Gangnam is a tony Seoul neighborhood, and Park's "Gangnam Style" video lampoons its self-importance and ostentatious wealth, with Psy playing a clownish caricature of a Gangnam man. That alone makes it practically operatic compared to most K-Pop.

None of this commentary is particularly overt, which is actually what could make "Gangnam Style" so subversive. Social commentary is just not really done in mainstream Korean pop music.
