    In the 60s The Beatles and their bad boy cousins The Rolling Stones were said to lead the British invasion.  Pop music in Asia has long been influenced by American pop music, but also is developing its own styles.  It is quite common to have bits of English in native language songs, as Gangnam Style does.  Is it time for the next wave of creative popular music to come from Asia?

    The only Indian pop music I've ever heard of is called bangra or something like that.

    I prefer Ravi Shankar.

    I don't know about an "invasion," but the tune is so upbeat and fun - that's it's cool.

    And the dance is so silly that - it's fun to watch.

    a note of caution....

    i found out the hardway that gangnam style is NOT the same as 'gamgbang style'... despite the similar sounding terms

      I'm proud to say I haven't tried it and I never will mostly because I resist anyone telling me I should do something because everyone else is doing it.

        I tried it, it was fun. I do some funny stuff or dance specially if the music is upbeat.

          I tried it, too. It was fun. Even my nephews and nieces are crazy about it that they just danced in the middle of somewhere whenever they heard the gangnam style dance music.

    I think it's surely a catchy song. Perhaps if I knew Korean it would be more understandable to me. Surely I would think there is more lyrical value compared to Justin Bieber's "Baby."

    Yes it is more lyrical value. You can see the meaning of this song on internet and the song is also very cool.
