PSY’s Gangnam Style is better than Lennon’s’ Imagine
Everyone in Korea was aware of PSY’s natural talent but was after the worldwide success of Gangnam Style that it went from being someone locally recognized to a global pop hit that every musician would be proud of.
The extremely catchy beat together with amusing dance moves made this song become a phenomenon in the music video and during live performances all around the world.
Gangnam Style was recognized by Guinness World Records as the most liked video on YouTube and it won Best Video at the MTV Europe Music Awards.
Less than a month after the release the song had topped the music charts of more than 30 countries including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
National governments and international organisms welcomed the song as it tends to promote world peace and understanding.
Gangnam Style attracted the attention of business and political leaders including UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon who recognized the song as ‘a force for world peace’.
The lyrics talks about a guy that even being born poor was able to overcome that obstacle and achieved to reach the high class way of life associated with trendy clothing and classy life style.
His conception of hardworking is also reflected by the fact that in order to perform that greatly in the video the guy studied the dance moves and stayed up late for about 30 nights to come up with that particular idea.
His hard work pays back and the song was greeted by the critics and spread smiles and pure fun around the world in record time.
After years of effort and sacrifice the charming and charismatic PSY was able to create a strongly addictive beat what quickly became the greatest cultural masterpiece of all ages being the first video in Internet history to be viewed more than a billion times.
There were a lot of catchy and colorful videos in the past but is the story behind Gangnam Style that converts it into a world sensation in a matter of weeks
Opposed to this inspiring story we have Lennon’s song which asks us to imagine a world which there is nothing to value enough to give our life for or for which we are willing to take the chance to fight for.
In other words, according to Lennon we should aspire to live an unfulfilled life.
As humans beings nothing provides us more joy and pleasure than obtain something that’s hard and that we have to struggle to obtain, something that challenges us.
It is true that all those flower power minded were nice people but is also true that they were all unmotivated and apathetic.
We all agree that is sad to have poverty in the world but the solution is motivate those poor people to achieve success, not to give them what they need and take away the inspiration.
No one decide to born in poverty but is their decision to keep living that way.
Upper class people are best because they fight for his rights and work hard to have what they know they deserve so inequity is good because it promotes accomplishment and self-improvement.
Gangman Style portraits an example of how people who work hard can reach wealthy and enjoy a luxurious and long life in contrast with the bad influence of careless drug addicts that usually die at a young ages.
PSY’s song shows the world how well educated people are equipped to face the economic challenges and those people are the only ones who deserve success, not hippies.
the world must know the truth!
