Since I first mentioned Gangnam style after I heard about it on the radio one morning during the school run, it has gone global. The Korean rapper PSY is currently number one in the British charts and holds the honour of having the most viewed YouTube video ever, with almost 450 million hits. He was seen at the Korean Grand prix at the weekend waving the chequered flag.
PSY a dancer, rapper, comedian artist and musician, his horse-riding routine is imitated by everyone from Britney Spears to every school child in Britain. Only last evening my son was trying to produce a musical production about a famous person written and sung in Spanish to the background of Gangnam Style. (As you do for Spanish homework?!!)
Long may his success last, and can I have some of that?!!
I hear that “Gangnam Style” which I blogged about last week has now reached #2 in the iTunes download charts. Although being an “oldie” I can’t see the appeal of downloading just the tune as I thought it was all about the video?! I must be missing a trick there!
Finished reading Lunara by Wyatt Davenport, but I’m afraid it wasn’t a big hit with me. I’m a fan of Stargate, StarWars and StarTrek, so it had a lot to live up to. A lot of praise for the Author writing large battle scenes, they are much easier to watch on the screen than to imagine in your head. I got a bit lost with some of the characters too, but perhaps it was just me?
The next book that I’m on is totally different; Angels in my Hair by Lorna Byrne is a wonderful book about Angels from a gifted Irish lady. I always love the mysticism which comes from Ireland, it has very ancient roots. It’s a book I like to read tucked away on my own.
So when the house is busy I read other books when I can, I’ve just started; A Plague of Sinners by Paul Lawrence. Set in London 1665, murder and suspense during the Great Plague.
Hot news this morning in London from Dave Berry and Lis Snowdon at CapitalFm on the Breakfast show is “Gangnam Style”. PSY-Gangnam Style has got over 157000000 hits on You Tube already after artist Park Jae-Sang tried to teach Britney Spears his moves! http://www.capitalfm.com/on-air/breakfast/psy-gangnam-style/
Check it out for some Friday Fun and have a great weekend!
