Gangnam Style is a 2012 K-pop single by the South Korean rapper Psy. It has led to various user generated parodies and reaction videos from all over the world. Gangnam Style is spreading like wildfire and millions around the globe have become obsessed.
Gangnam Style is widely praised for its humor, catchy rhythm as well as Psy’s unusual dance moves that have introduced many people to K-pop. First released on July 15, 2012, it entered the Gaon Chart singles chart at number one upon release.
I have read about the phenomena of the Oppa Gangnam style Parody but just brush it out as another music style of the music industry especially the younger generation style of music. It was once again triggering my curiosity of the music when I read in the facebook that the Gangnam style parody has reached the shore of Sabah.
The song titled ORANG SABAH STYLE (Oppa Gangnam Style Parody). The song is in Hakka (Chinese) but there is English translation at the bottom of the video unless you are blind as opposed to some comments about the video.
The song is about humor as well as a way to introduce Sabah as a tourism destination where the songs mentioned about the places to visit, the good food and of course the beautiful ladies of Sabah. I think it is much better to hear the song yourself although it is a Chinese song but song that was done Sabah Style gangnam version.
Some of the lyrics of the Orang Sabah style I managed to understand are as follows;
Sabah Orang (Ulang ..) style
Many people say that Sabah has many beautiful girls
Do you really know how big Sabah really is?
From Kudat to Tawau, there are many beautiful girls but most of the girls have come to Kota Kinabalu.
On the way … (under wear .. hahah) Sabah love to say
When they are still at home, they still say On the way
When they are in Toilet, they say on the way
Coming almost there ..
Come to Sabah, wanna try the seafood. Go to Island and mount kinabalu as well.
Not only beautiful girls but we also have Urang utan
And also gua ..shemale and many beautiful girls.
Other than sightseeing, there are also food delights
Steam and fried dumpling and tan gong mee (Sandakan food) Tuaran mee and konlon mee
Baby ..baby just wanna eat Sang Nyuk Mian, You know what I am saying.
Sexy lady .. Ulang Sabah Style
Orang Sabah Style wish all Malaysian fellows
Happy National day, regardless of west or East Malaysia
We are one family
Happy national day.
When I watched the video yesterday it had only 28,000 hits but this morning it has already hits 274,000 and counting. As a Sabahan style of Gangnam and was just publish in Youtube since 27 August 2012 I do not see why it cannot reached 300,000 by tomorrow morning.
