My goodness there's tons of rip-off covers of this song available for mp3 purchase on Amazon. This is the one most people are probably looking for.

For being a satire of current trends in Korean pop music/videos, the song itself is darn good in its own right.

Just to reaffirm other reviewers this is the version of Gangnam Style to get here on Amazon. I don't feel the need to describe how awesome this song is because If you are in this page you already love it anyway!

The first time I saw this video was 3 months ago while watching a Korean show that wasn't even popular. At the time I laughed it off thinking it must be one of those asian gimmick songs. However, I couldn't shake this desire to want to watch it again and googled it. I have since become not just inspired by the song, but by the humility and down-to-earth attitude of the artist. You can totally see this guy laugh at himself or make fun of his own "super stardom status." This is a serious artist who does NOT take himself too seriously, and that is more than I can say about most artists out there who are the opposite (unserious artists who takes themselves too seriously). Buy it and support this guy!

By all accounts, I should not like this song. I don't know a word of Korean, so most of the lyrics went straight over my head. I don't listen to Asian pop much, so the style is one I'm unfamiliar with. And the fact that Psy doesn't actually sing for most of the song, instead mainly talking over the music, should have turned me off. I should have dismissed the song as a passing fad and gone on with my life.

But I made the mistake of listening to the song on YouTube... and it lodged itself in my brain. And I ended up liking it well enough to purchase a copy. It's no musical masterpiece, but dang is it catchy and fun.

For those more used to American-style music, "Gangnam Style" is something of a departure from it. It's heavy on the synthesizer, much like a lot of the hits of the '80s, and has a fast, almost frantic beat to it. As stated before, Psy talks his way through most of the song, only singing at the chorus (he does do a decent job of singing, though, so it's not for lack of talent). This gives the song almost something of a rap feel, though it sounds quite different from traditional rap. And of course, it's an upbeat number that almost encourages the listener to get up and dance -- I find it almost physically impossible to hold still while listening to this song.

And no, I don't understand any of the lyrics aside from the titular "Gangnam style" (said to refer to a city) and the occasional belting out of "Hey, sexy lady!" No, I don't know if it fits in the context of the song or not... XD

Call me a sell-out, but I rather enjoyed this song. It's a fun and upbeat dance number, even if you don't know how to do the signature dance that goes with it. Good as an introductory number to K-Pop, and a fun party number.

Don't doubt it. This viral hit has gotten over 1 billion hits on YouTube. It's gone to the top of the US, UK and several other countries music charts. It's an international sensation. The song, the video, the dance, all of it has put K-Pop into the international spotlight. Great song for pretty much any occasion. Fun song that will get people moving. You can't help but want to dance to it.

I'm not sure the song or lyrics themselves are what sold this song worldwide, as the video is what attracted most people I know to view and listen to this artist. Psy had a unique way of blending actual showmanship with some of the more humorous stylings of artists like Weird Al and make a music video that everyone wants to move to. This particular song file keeps the beat going and is well worth the the cost. The only thing I'd find even more appealing than getting the song is if Amazon bundled the video with it - buy the song - get the music video as well - all downloadable in Amazon's music service.

Overall - I can't complain about this song, as it seems to lift the spirits of anyone that listens to it at my local watering hole. And let me tell you - there is nothing more uplifting than watching a bunch of grown men, after a few drinks, attempt to dance "Gangnam Style"....

My one year old and 10 year old love this song. They dance to it all the time. I have gotten to the point of not hearing it anymore as well as that What does the fox say song. We play all the songs using Amazon Echo. My one year old is always saying ahhhh! to try and get Alexa to start playing music.

I was first introduced to this song at AT&T Park (SF Giants Ball Park) on the scoreboard screen during a break in play. In ballpark style, they show the video and then fans dancing to it on the screen; our radio announcers dance to it as well. What a wildly-fun song and a dance work-out!
