Gangnam Style. Who, or What is it?
Even middle aged codgers like me have seen and heard thisÂ
Gangnam Style is actually the name of a single recorded pop song,(a â45â as we fossils would call it), sung by a South Korean Pop Sensation, simply known as Psy. This genre of music is known by the kids as KPOP, short for Korean pop music. At the time of writing in early October 2012, it has gone viral on social media, utube and the like. However Psy actually released it back in mid July this year, so not quite the overnight sensation that some breathless commentators would have you believe.
But it does not stop atÂ the lyrics or melody of the song. Oh no, Gangnam Style has a dance and fashion style of its own. If you havenât already watched it, join one of the over three million others and counting and have a peek at it on utube.com. To me itâs a polarizing experience; you either love it or loathe it!
And as for the accessories? Well there isÂ
So how did this Mr Psy come up with this name Gangnam? Well it turns out that it is a hip and trendy presinct of South Koreaâs capital city, Seoul.Â
Most of the music video is shot on location around the Gangnam district, and the viewer is left to watch Psy and friend, Hyuna, doing everything from cavorting in a hot spa, to a spot of outdoor yoga to several odd looking horse dances that just add to the WHAT factor.
And just to round off, it seems that musician and performer Psy isnât all that typical with matters legal either. According to the respected Guardian newspaper, he has officially waived his copyright to the video. Other commentators are more of the opinion that, whilst still officially having all rights to the product, our Psy has simply not bothered to enforce them. Perhaps this explains the abundance of parody and mimic performances that have sprung up worldwide. Well good on you Psy, after all they do say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
No stress now, ok? Just fill those stockings with anything Gangnam Style and the kids will luv ya!
