    Back in mid-September, my music teacher said a month later, everyone would hate Gangnam Style.
    Nope, it’s still going strong, and is now the most viewed video on YouTube, “baby”.

    • Grenalie

      The fad will die out sooner or later.

      • Aoshi00

        yes, nothing lasts forever, but the point is the song alrdy made history, everybody and their mother know about this song. So years from now, people would still remember this as a YMCA or Macarena.. a fun and silly song w/ a catchy beat and crazy music video.. I’m wondering if this song would be played in company Xmas party this year too :) A lot of things make a splash and they would still be memorable, say the guy in the elevator :)

        • Melcyna

          Much too soon to actually claim such…

          we live in the widespread internet age where fads and such come are normal but rarely lasting except for very few… a significantly different age to the times of YMCA and macarena frankly.

          maybe it will live as long, but it’s just as likely to fade away like countless others in internet where it made a big splash at the start and disappear from popularity now.

          • Aoshi00

            I understand, sure, it’s very easy to get a 1-hit wonder or 15 min of fame on youtube, the word “going viral” gets used so much now. But I mean even for those who don’t like the song Gangnam Style, there’s no need to put it down. I’m sure back in the 90′s some people didn’t like Macarena either and wish it would just go away (I remember being a bit annoyed seeing the dance everywhere in stadium or dance floor).. I’m not sure how generational Macarena is though, kids today probably don’t know it.. most music, however popular, are in fact contemporary. Fad or not, I think this song is undeniably catchy and funny.. silly as it may be. But definitely fit for a track in a dancing game.

          • Morricane

            Yeah, that’s why we talk about “contemporary music”, usually. :) It’s really sad though how many young people nowadays don’t even know the Beatles (!!!) anymore or can’t recognize Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody or whatever…Instead of feeling just old, I rather feel like I’m on a foreign planet sometimes. X___x;;;

          • Melcyna

            It doesn’t matter because ultimately the fact that there are still a good number of Beatles fan and ppl who knows Beatles for example is a good testament to the song quality itself and their popularity.

            Youngsters will adopt, and forget things at rapid pace, they have always been… except for things that are most memorable to them. They are not gonna bother listening to the past except when it’s so good that it’s remembered in the future and they eventually stumble to it.

            Expecting youngsters to know and remember Beatles is pointless because they did not live during the age when Beatles were popular, but they CAN learn of it from the record of the songs most memorable of the era.

            On the other hand countless others song from that era is practically forgotten, faded into obscurity. So as long as a song is good enough or popular enough to be remembered, eventually the future generations will hear it and if they still like it they will perpetuate it’s record.

            The question is, which one does this one fit into? One destined to be forgotten as quickly as it became popular?

            Or one that will have lasting fans and remembered long after it was released that will have current generations remembering it in the future along with future generations who hear it from the record?

            Personally, i don’t think this one is anything of the quality sufficient to be called the later, and simply a short fad…

    Why is it that whenever an american says gangnam style it sounds like gundam style

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      Go pilot you goddamn gundamn! XD

      It’s just the way americans force their own pronunciation on any word that is non-english, which ofcourse sounds horrible.

      • AJ

        Because everyone who learns English as a second language has a perfect English accent and never says English words funny?

        • http://twitter.com/monkeyking2135 monkey king

          …wat?
          Everyone (even americans yes) who learns any language as a second language will and should try to get the pronuncations down, cause that’s the whole point of learning a language: knowing how to speak it -properly-.

          This however isn’t even about learning a language rofl, this is about -singular- instances of words that are foreign to americans, and they get butchered every time; even something easy like ‘anime’ gets treated as if it’s an american english word by any american I’ve personally met.

          Even after realising their way of pronuncation is wrong, they won’t change it; Psy clearly says “gahngnam” in this trailer, yet americans default to “gehngnum”, or even nearly “gundam” style like the narrator in the very same trailer.

          It’s just something I’ve come to notice in the years I’ve had to deal with americans; I can forgive not having the exact phonetic sound in the language you are native to, that’s fine, but examples like in this trailer show not even trying to make an effort.

            This is far from exclusive to North American people. There’s a reason the term “Engrish” exists after all. Foreign words are hard to correctly pronounce when you don’t know that language. Now that’s universal.

          • AJ

            Well, some people are just dumb.

            (My relatives say “coke” instead of “drink”. They want tea? They ask for Coke. Morons.)

    Didn’t know that PSY was coming to HK until I read today’s newspaper. 0_0
