PSY - Gangnam Style (Cover by Gary Song & Javin Tham)


This song has gone insanely viral since 2012. Tonnes of covers and parodies are observed on the Internet. Gangnam Style, despite sung mainly in the foreign language of Korean by PSY, it's a craze around the planet earth.

Previously, Singaporean Steph Micayle (Stephanie Koh) covered an acoustic version of the song with her singing, harmonizing with guitar accompaniment and uploaded that cover onto her YouTube channel. Besides garnering over millions of views in a few months, a number of copies of her video were re uploaded onto YouTube and Facebook by other users. It's pretty original in terms of the melody she sang to replace the rapping part. On the other hand, the way she dressed also contributed in bringing her fame to an extent, I would say.

Gary and I sort of covered her version of Gangnam Style. I can see the effort Gary put in for memorizing the Korean lyrics, and this makes him the only non-Korean in Temasek Hall who's able to sing the entire song.

Hope you all like our cover of Gangnam Style. Please like it, share it and subscribe to my channel.
