There are much more annoying musical fads than that. I don't despise it but I can't see why that is so special and popular. My only explanation is the unlikeliness of a hit pop song being sung by a short, chubby, middle-aged Korean guy who looks more like a stiff business type, which I guess is a funny irony But the song itself is just as generic-sounding as any crappy western top-charter
It's more of a novelty thing to most, it's not particularly special to people who have heard that sort of stuff before. I listened to a lot of music from different countries as language doesn't bother me, I find it's not dissimilar to a lot of the stuff coming out of Japan of the same genre so the novelty was never there to begin with.
It's one of those "songs" that we've heard a million times pop/dance music is stuck in the same place for a couple of years now.Yes it's catchy and funny and that's it.( well that't my personal opinion about it)
I see, I also don`t like most of these mainstream songs played on the radio because they are all the same and not expressive at all, that is why I prefer metal genres like folk, gothic, pagan and so on. But Gangnam Style is different as it has a special dance I think, it is not about the art of music but the fun
Definetely, but why not? This is just for fun, I know that it is not really artistic or sth like that, but some time you don`t want to be serious. Life`s so much better having fun. And I don`t mean it like doing silly stuff all the time because it is sooo funny but beeing able to make fun of yourself from time to time
