clicked not because of its Korean lyrics
but because of its musicality. You could replace Korean with
French, Russian, Swahili, and wait--even Tagalog (or any
local dialect) and the music (video) would still click.
It is rap, a genre that's attuned to the standards of the
day. Plus, it helps that the artist Psy winks at the listening
audience when he does his spiel. The song doesn't take itself
seriously rather with levity and plays it to the hilt-...
The horse dance! Really now. Watch the video again.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vy-zilON8k
Silly always has its place in the cockles of a fun-loving
As long as the melody, harmony, and tempo of the song is
universal, a song in any language will work and will be embraced--Pie Jesu, La Vie en Rose,
and someone mentioned, Dahil sa Iyo,
as examples. Silent Night
is originally German.
The real test for Psy(cho) is if he records another song in
Korean that will top the Billboard charts, again. If he does,
then Freddie Aguilar can start gloating. Otherwise, the
William Hung effect only proves itself right--yet again.The Macarena
would be so proud.

remember this comment by ka freddie that almost everyone laughed at?
“E, pinatotohanan lang ang sinabi ni Mariah Carey na tayong mga Filipino ay mga unggoy. Kasi, wala tayong sarili, gaya-gaya lang tayo. Nasa Amerika ka na, binigyan ka na ng pagkakataon na kumanta sa Oprah, bakit kumanta ka pa ng kanta ni Celine Dion? Sinabi ni Mariah na mga unggoy ang Filipino, gaya-gaya lang kayo, e, di napatunayan nga, totoo nga. “Kasi, di ba, what monkeys see, monkeys do. Dapat ang kinanta niya, bakit hindi ‘Dahil Sa Iyo’ o kaya ay kahit ano, basta kantang Filipino? O kaya Visayan, Ilocano… lalo siyang sisikat sa buong mundo nun,” Freddie says.”
Rapper PSY sang his way to the billboard charts growling in mostly korean lyrics, yet the world is dancing to it...
