PSY – Gangnam Style

Pop single, Gangnam Style marks the outlandish return of South Korean rapper PSY, and preempts the launch of his sixth album, PSY6甲 (Psy’s BEST Sixth). Launched in July of this year, Gangnam Style just goes to prove how bizarre the web community really is in its tastes and humour. We saw Gangnam Style mere days after its release, but never predicted it would follow such an unprecedented trajectory of viral success and fame.

The combination of simple lyrics “certain to penetrate the foundations of modern philosophy”, infectious melodies, retro dance moves and exuberant character, locations & horses  is not only proving to be a recipe for viral success, but seemingly the recipe. Yes, this little video that we chuckled at but largely ignored, has now racked up more than 200 million views, that’s more than the entirety of Lady Gaga’s video channel.

For those who can’t get enough, below you’ll find the lyrics of Gangnam Style translated in to English:

 

Gangnam Style, English Translation

Oppa is Gangnam style

Gangnam style

A girl who is warm and humanly during the day
A classy girl who know how to enjoy the freedom of a cup of coffee
A girl whose heart gets hotter when night comes
A girl with that kind of twist

I’m a guy
A guy who is as warm as you during the day
A guy who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down
A guy whose heart bursts when night comes
That kind of guy

Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end

Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

A girl who looks quiet but plays when she plays
A girl who puts her hair down when the right time comes
A girl who covers herself but is more sexy than a girl who bares it all
A sensable girl like that

I’m a guy
A guy who seems calm but plays when he plays
A guy who goes completely crazy when the right time comes
A guy who has bulging ideas rather than muscles
That kind of guy

Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end

Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
I’m a man who knows a thing or two
On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
I’m a man who knows a thing or two

You know what I’m saying
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh
