I’m sure most of you are aware of the video ‘Gangnam Style‘. Such a catchy song.
I’ve been wanting to use it as background music for a video at school. I made a Christmas video last year with my grade level that was really cute…they played it for the school. Folks keep asking if I’ll do another one this year.
Probably not. It’s time consuming, and time is something I just don’t have with my job this year.
And I’d want to use music that most of the kids would recognize. Gangnam Style would probably fit the bill, except for the words ‘sexy lady’ in the refrain of the song. I’m sure the kids have heard the song, and won’t even pay attention to it. But…I just can’t do it for risking the ‘inappropriateness’ of it. Oh, well.
We were packing up to go home on the last day before the Thanksgiving holidays. Sometimes I play music as we clean up the room. On a whim, I looked to see if Gangnum Style was on our youtube-cleansearch link for the school (it’s supposed to filter out anything ‘bad’). The song was there!!!! I started the music (the kids can’t see my monitor, but they can hear via the speakers)…and it was like a music video broke out! The kids all jumped up and started doing the kitschy horse-trot dance, grinning like crazy people. They had me laughing and dancing, too.
Crazy fun stuff.
