Psy, ‘Gangnam Style’ – Best 2012 Dance Songs
Can over 400 million YouTube views be a fluke? No, they can’t. Psy and his ‘Gangnam Style’ may or may not be here to stay, but one thing is for sure: When you look back at late summer and early fall of 2012, you will remember ‘Gangnam Style’ — if not for its K-Pop singer and its catchy grooves, then for its accompanying dance craze. Psy and his hips don’t lie.
The song is a club banger, but it’s not traditional or what you’d expect. Synthy, beat-driven and somewhat similar to the work of EDM DJ Calvin Harris at times, this K-Pop song is one heck of an earworm. You can literally dance like no one is watching without feeling all sorts of embarrassed — it’s a dance song for people who can’t dance.
‘Gangnam Style’ is the ‘Party Rock Anthem’ of 2012. Truth.
