The most viral video/song in the internet now is GANGNAM STYLE. These past days I observed Summer doing a funky dance move, and singing a quite strange song which I can not make the words out. I was really confused if it’s her own Thai or English make-up-words. She was having fun laughing and giggling as she danced and sang. When we posed for a family picture, she had her hands positioned similar to when she dances. I was intrigued, but she really can’t pronounce the words properly.
At work, i was quite intrigued when my students were singing a similar tune. They told me that it ‘s GANGNAM STYLE. When I got home that day, I checked the internet. OMG!!! There are already like so many different versions, renditions,parodies of it already and believe it or not these videos got hundreds of thousands to at least a million views. The most popular next to the original of course is the Thai version. Other famous versions are that of the Philippines and India. There might be others that are also popular that i have not seen but from my vantage these versions filled the top search slots.
A lot of people have praised this world wide hit wonder but of course it will never escape a lot of detractors giving their piece of mind about the matter. These people giving their thoughts about the song and about the people who dance to it. These negative inputs range from taste in music to racism so on and so forth. You can even see a lot of verbal altercations in the comment section of youtube. LOL!
But for me and my husband it’s about having fun. As long as the lyrics don’t mean anything awful, like most songs of today contain, it is ok for us. and perhaps our favorite version is the Thai version which talks about life of the “PROM D” or “from the province” We don’t know what the korean song means really but we do hope it is not saying anything awful.
Oppa GANG NAM Style!!!!
