my favorite eye color is your eye color and my favorite height is your height and my favorite weight is your weight my favorite hands are your hands my favorite knees are your knees
I use hun not hon because you are not my honey, you are my fierce warrior
I don’t usually do this sort of thing, because when it comes to music, I’m paralyzed by the need to make it absolutely astounding/groundbreaking/masterful, which is absurd because that sort of thing just doesn’t happen. Plus, I also think I’m terrible at writing songs.
But I’d still like to do it, so I am.
Song of Joy
(which is a terribly unoriginal name, but it’s pretty much the reason behind writing the song in the first place, so yeah.)
There was also supposed to be a harmonica between the second and third verse, but I can’t find the harmonica holder, so that’s a no go.
I love Ethan and i love this song.
Hun, you are amazingly talented and you need to quit forgetting that.
The older I get the more I realise there are no grown ups and nobody knows what the fuck they’re doing.
THIS IS LITERALLY THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN OH MY GOD.
His Captain America!
have u ever accidentally befriended someone who is very very irritating
For most of America, Psy is a funny name, a funny face, and a funny personality. He doesn’t sing in English and most people just don’t get it leaving most of them to not take him seriously. It’s easy to strip the significance behind “Gangnam Style” down if you don’t know what it means and solely find entertainment in the Asian guy shaking his hips. But what most people don’t realize is that Psy doesn’t take himself seriously. He’s a satirist and political dissident. “Gangnam Style” was a commentary, not just a fun pop tune with a silly dance.
Gangnam is Seoul’s wealthiest and flashiest neighborhood. For South Koreans, Gangnam represents the ideal life of excess and consumerism. Psy’s character in the video is a wannabe Gangnamite. He dreams he’s living the flashy, excessive lifestyle while he’s really just like everyone else, swimming in a public pool and riding the subway. But never in the video does it seem that Psy’s character is unhappy. He’s content to play in a children’s playground and meet the girl of his dreams in the subway. “Gangnam Style” is much more that we have made it, but that’s not surprising considering Psy’s background and how little we know about it.
In America, it seems like “Gangnam Style” was Psy’s big break when in fact the song had been released on his sixth studio album and his music career hadn’t been about making flashy and catchy songs. He believes music is the key to overcoming the intolerance embedded in his country’s political systems. Throughout his career, his songs have been banned for inappropriate content and have been surrounded by controversy, not to mention the fact that he fought his mandatory military draft.
Psy is a voice for his people. He’s fighting the oppression and intolerance he sees in his culture through his music. And by ignoring his worth and his value, we’re reducing the culture of South Korea into a short man with funny pants doing a ridiculous dance.
