Ennuipoet: Yet, somehow I suspect it's replacement will be worse.
CPT Ethanolic: I'm always amused at these 1 hit internet wonders who think they became popular because people like the song. It was a joke! That's why everyone watched/shared it, not because it was a good song. Milk it and move on.
tenpoundsofcheese: Hopefully this doesn't mean that he will go back to rapping about killing the spouses and kids of US troops.
Practical_Draconian: /I would consider a Psy/Sir Mixalot crossover.
Doc Batarang: Its the old "Harry Belafonte" problem.
Ed Finnerty: Doc Batarang: Its the old "Harry Belafonte" problem.Herpes?
nburghmatt: maybe that's just what pop music needs right now.
tenpoundsofcheese: Hopefully this doesn't mean that he will go back to rapping about killing the spouses and kids of the specific US troops who were involved in the torture of Iraqi captives.
Bit'O'Gristle: What ever happened to good taste in music?
DeathByGeekSquad: tenpoundsofcheese: Hopefully this doesn't mean that he will go back to rapping about killing the spouses and kids of US troops.Yep, not that the kiddies understand it...
relaxitsjustme: Where do you Farkers hang out that you can't avoid Gangnam style or why are hanging out in places that don't play music you enjoy? The only time I've heard the song played is when I've checked it out on youtube. I enjoyed it, kind of catchy w/ cute babes but I'm not running out to buy it. Subby probably enjoyed it the first time too but once it got HUGELY popular you're just too cool to be associated with something sooooo mainstream.

gopher321: And please do not think I'm equating Gangnam Style to Stairway in terms of greatness.
davynelson: i actually admit to finally checking it out last week, the video.lord but does the music suck ass.
John Buck 41: My avoidance will continue.
Gosling: Well, think of it from the singer's perspective. You've got other material, you would like to make more material, and you don't exactly want to end up a one-hit wonder. That's like going 'Yeah, I want to get up to the major leagues, and I'll be happy just playing one game.' You want to have a second hit too, and a third and a fourth and so on. And you might not think that song is your best song anyways. So you go make more songs, songs you think are better than the hit, but all people want to hear is the one hit no matter how much other material you put out, and sooner or later you think of your hit not as your meal ticket, but as your albatross. Nobody's letting you do anything BUT your one hit. Often, it ends up pissing you off. You're a musician, a creative type, you want to grow as a musician and people want to keep you in a tiny little box.Sometimes it gets to the point where the artist just straight-out refuses to perform the song anymore.
