Gangnam style danceWith over 264 million views as of September 2012 and closing in on 3 million likes, the quirky Gangnam Style video became the most “liked” video in YouTube history. Gangnam Style is a Korean pop music video by Korean musician PSY that hit the Internet by storm in 2012. The video is well liked for its humor, catchy rhythm and PSY’s ability to make goofy looking dance moves appear to be cool. The title of the video refers to trendy Korea’s Gangnam district where inhabitants are stylish and hip, similar to the Beverly Hills suburb of California. In the Gangnam Style song, which is a satire of conspicuous consumption in South Korea, PSY sings about “the perfect girlfriend who knows when to be refined and when to get wild” (see complete lyrics below).

PSY is married and the father of two. He is unusual in that he writes his own music and choreographs his own videos. He waived his copyright to the Gangnam Style music video ensuring its future as an Internet meme.

The English lyrics to Gangnam Style

Oppa is Gangnam style
Gangnam style

A girl who is warm and humanle 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
