PSY – Gangnam Style (2012)

A quarter of a billion hits on Youtube can’t be wrong.

A searing critique of South Korea at the economic and nuclear crossroads. The citizens dance while the dogs of war circle. Calling into question the entire validity of the Chaebol model of South Korean capitalism, the lyrics consider the relative merits of a greater push towards central planning (a la China) or whether to break up the oligopolies in the direction of the capitalist forms of the USA or the UK. Interestingly, the German model is barely considered and the French is simply scoffed at.

Devastating.

For me, I’m mastering the moves to try out at the next family wedding.
