    I was happy all the way until I read the line about him doing a song with JB. He's dead to me now.
    shut up
    For having an opinion? No thanks, I liked the song before it had a million views and I like it now, while true I don't understand a word he's saying I can't help but enjoy it.
    You've misunderstood. I love Gangnam Style. What I meant was that I don't see why one pop artist collaborating with another pop artist makes him "dead to (you)" Bt dem red arrows r bootiful n dey wil never leaf me xo
    At least Gangnam Style is supposed to be horrible in a funny sort of way.
    He's not trying to look horrible. That's Psy's getup. Go listen to his other music (yes, he's no one-hit wonder in other countries and is very popular).
    Both are shitty, overrated, and overplayed. One is just "different" because it's foreign.
    Really tho, if you actually listen to the English translation of the song it's really no different than any of the other mediocre dance-pop garbage being pumped out
    Wut? Gangnam Style's lyrics are a complete change from the norm of pop music lyrics. They talk about how having brains and good ideas are more important than being physically attractive, and how a girl having class but knowing how to have fun is so much more attractive than being promiscuous. Have you even READ the translations?
    Yes because we've never heard that before Lady Gaga, Christina Agulara (sp), Shiloh, every frigging P!nk song, etc.)
    There's a very obvious difference between songs about people being good and respectable and "feelgood" songs. Also, Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga and P!nk also sing about getting drunk and lairy.
    I don't mind the song, but why out of all the great Asian artist do we get the gimmicky westernized ones. No one has even heard of Shiina Ringo over here but is one of the greatest Japanese artists, X Japan as well.
    "Psy has been approached by Justin Bieber's management company and it has said the pair will work on a song together." WHY D:
    I was mad when he beat Gee but now I am less mad because he beat everyone.
    If you think Adam`s story is impossible,, last week my aunt's step son basically made the small fortune of $7111 workin a fifteen hour week in their apartment and there roomate's mother`s neighbour has been doing this for nine months and easily made more than $7111 part-time On there laptop. use the instructions at this site, cloud68 doTcom
    I can`t help but like this song. Lightens my mood whenever it pops up on the radio. But then again you don`t become most viewed on youtube for making stuff people don't like in general. Kudos tp Psy for that achievement at least. As for the Bieber/Psy collaboration. If you dislike it then stay clear.
    It's not his fault that commercial media decided to jump on the band wagon and get as much ratings as they can from the song. I loved this song (because of it's catchyness) when I first heard it, but hearing it played on commercial radio stations and seeing morning breakfast show hosts try do the dance just makes me cringe
    Love how so many UGers try to come off as nice, broad-minded, tolerant, "I love every genre of music ever" kind of guys... yeah right.
