Psy Gentleman

Psy Gentleman is the latest single from Psy released in The USA. Psy Gentleman has some of the funny and sarcastic social commentary that made Gangnam Style such an international hit. It also has fun and hysterical dance moves that have created the string oif success he has enjoyed in South Korea. I used to live in South Korea and have such great appreciation for the people and culture whenever anything makes its way to American pop culture.

Psy Gentleman Breaks You Tube Records!

The video for Psy Gentleman — the South Korean pop star’s hotly anticipated follow-up to the internationally ubiquitous “Gangnam Style” — set a new record for most hits on YouTube in a single day on April 14, earning 38 million views, according to Google. The “Kony 2012” short film held the prior record with 30 million. Psy Gentleman also set a day-of-debut record of 18.5 million views when it dropped April 13.

Psy’s “Gangnam Style” is YouTube’s most-watched video of all time at 1.5 billion views.

Psy Gentleman, which features the 35-year-old goofball lothario debuting a new hip-swinging signature dance and playing pranks on women in various locations around Seoul, has been viewed 215 million times in the 10 days since its release. It took Gangnam Style took more than 50 days to reach 100 million views.

Psy’s viral fortunes haven’t been buoyed by mainstream media support back home, though. The video for “Gentleman” was banned by a South Korean broadcaster last week because of its depiction of “the abuse of public property.” In one sequence in the video, Psy is seen kicking a “no parking” sign.

Psy Gentleman is the 19th K-pop single by South Korean musician Psy released on April 12, 2013 (KST). It is the follow-up to his international hit single “Gangnam Style“, which at the time of Gentleman’s release had been viewed on YouTube over 1.5 billion times. The first public performance of the song, with its associated dance, was unveiled at 6:30 pm on April 13 at Seoul World Cup Stadium in Seoul. A poster and Twitter message was released containing the main line of the song “I’m a mother fxxxxx gentleman”; the word was later revealed to be “father”

From April 7–9, 2013, the music video for “Gentleman” was filmed in various parts of Seoul and Goyang, South Korea. The boutique in the opener was the 10 Corso Como store in Cheongdam-dong, and the elevator scene was at the The Grand InterContinental Hotel, both of which are in the Gangnam District. The elementary school was in Seongdong District, and the library was the Seoul Metropolitan Library in Seoul City Hall. A part of the hip-swing dance scenes was at the Mapo Bridge. In Goyang, scenes were shot at an indoor pool at Goyang Stadium, an Ilsan indoor golf driving range, and Hallyu World.[37][38] It was directed by South Korean Jo Soo-hyun, who previously directed Psy’s music video for “Gangnam Style,” and co-edited by Yang Hyun-suk. South Korean TV show Infinite Challenge cast members Yoo Jae-sukPark Myeong-suJeong Jun-haJeong Hyeong-donNoh Hong-chulHaHa, and Gil make appearances in the video, with Yoo and Noh making return appearances from the “Gangnam Style” video. The two bikini girls are models; the yellow bikini girl, Choi So-Ra, was the winner of the third cycle of Korea’s Next Top Model. Four of the other girls featured in the music video are acting majors from Dongduk Women’s University in Seoul.

The video is described to have a “sexual twist” in comparison to his previous single and features Psy performing a “fast, hip-swinging dance” and wearing an array of jackets in wide-ranging colors and sunglasses that he has become known for wearing. Before the release of the video, he hinted that the choreography will be a unique take on a classic dance by stating that “All Koreans know this dance. But (those in) other countries haven’t seen it”. The dance was later revealed to be the “arrogant dance” from the song “Abracadabra” by South Korean girl group Brown Eyed Girls. Lee Joo Sun, Psy’s choreographer who came up with the ‘horse-riding’ dance for “Gangnam Style,” had said, “We have a great dance. We thought up 50 different dances, everything from a sports dance to an animal dance, but we finally decided that [Brown Eyed Girls’] dance fits the song best.” The music video also features an appearance by the girl group member Ga-In. Psy reportedly paid a royalty to Brown Eyed Girls’ choreographers in order to use the routine in the video.

The video also revealed other dance move along with ‘arrogant dance’. The dance move was called the ‘crab dance’ where one moves sideways with their hands in the shape of a crab’s claw, and created by Lee Job-Sun.

Psy Gentleman is a fun song, dance and video.

Best Selling Music Artists of All-Time

The list of best selling music artists includes artists with claims of 75 million or more record sales in multiple third-party reliable sources. The claimed sales figures and the total certified sales figures (for each country) within the provided sources include sales of albums, singles, compilation-albums, music videos as well as downloads of singles and full-length albums. The artists in the following tables are listed with both their claimed and certified sales figures and are ranked in descending order, with the highest claimed sales at the top. Artists with the same claimed sales are then ranked by certified units. Sales figures, such as those from Soundscan, which are sometimes published by Billboard magazine, have not been included in the certified units column. Currently, The Beatles are listed at the top of the list as they are considered the highest-selling band based both on sales claims and certified units. Elvis Presley, who is listed the second on the list is considered the highest-selling individual artist based both on sales claims and certified units.

All artists included on this list, which have begun charting on official albums/singles charts have their available claimed figure(s) supported by at least 20% in certified units. That is why Cliff RichardDiana RossCharles AznavourBing CrosbyNana MouskouriDeep PurpleIron MaidenTom JonesThe Jackson 5Dionne WarwickThe Andrews Sisters,Luciano Pavarotti and others have not been included on this list. The percentage amount of certified sales needed increases the newer the artist is, meaning, artists such as Rihanna are expected to have their claimed figures supported by over 60% in certified units. The certified units are sourced from available online databases of local music industry associations. Note that all certified units are converted from Gold/Platinum/Diamond certification awards based on criteria provided by certifying bodies.

The requirements of certified sales are designed to avoid inflated sales figures, which are frequently practiced by record companies for promotional purposes.

The claimed figures are sourced to articles that use the term records (singles, albums, videos) and not albums. However, if all available sources for an artist/band say albums, such sources can only be used if the certified album units of the said artist meet the required percentage amount. Note that this list uses claimed figures that are closer to artists’ available certified sales. In other words, inflated claimed figures that will meet the required certified sales amount but are unrealistically high from available certified sales, will not be used.

    I am not surprised The Beatles are #1 but am a bit so that Elvis Presley is ahead of Michael Jackson, due to Michael Jackson’s global appeal. It is somewhat amazing that Led Zeppelin can be this high on Best Selling Music Artists of All-Time without a long history of hit singles, based solely on the strength of their album sales. These have been the most consistent hit producers of Pop Music and deserve their ranking. All are great artists for any professional Wedding DJ or Party DJ.

    is there any artist(s) that you thought would be in the top five Best Selling Music Artists of All-Time that did not reach this level of sales?

Billboard All-Time Hot 100 Top Songs

I was doing some research today and thought it would be fun to review the Billboard All-Time Hot 100 top songs of Billboard’s 50th Anniversary.

The songs in the “50th Anniversary” charts had to appear on the Hot 100 in order to be counted. This may create some confusion (for example: many great country artists and songs are not on the “50th Anniversary” chart because, while very popular on the country charts they didn’t cross over to the Hot 100). Also, keep in mind the Hot 100 started in August 1958 so any prior songs are not listed, including some popular Elvis Presley songs.

The “50th Anniversary” chart is based on actual performance on the weekly Billboard Hot 100. The artist chart utilizes the same methodology, with weighted points applied to all titles charted by each artist during that 50-year span. They are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at number one earning the greatest value and weeks at number one hundred earning the least.

Hot 100’s 50th Anniversary award relative points for every week that a title spent on the chart, regardless of rank. For the Hot 100’s 50th Anniversary, Billboard’s charts department ensured a more balanced representation of hits from all 50 years, by analyzing the length of chart runs in earlier decades, as well as the average weeks that titles spent in the top 10 and at number one. Weights for earlier spans were then formulated, to compensate for the shorter chart runs that titles experienced before the 1991 conversion to precise and objective sales and radio data from Nielsen Music.

Elvis Presley Billboard All-Time Hot 100 Top Songs with Rhode Island DJ

I am very surprised by all of the top ten, except maybe “Hey Jude” by The Beatles. It is not that I think they are not good or popular songs, I just did not conceptualize them as the ones that have had the most success on Billboard’s Hot 100 Charts of all time.

At the other end, I would have thought Madonna’s “Like A Virgin” would have been near the top of the list. The exclusion of songs like “Stairway To Heaven” by Led Zeppelin, as described below, stand out as clear missing by popularity over time.

The Beatles Billboard All-Time Hot 100 Top Songs  with Rhode Island DJ

Prior to December 1998, songs did not appear on the Billboard Hot 100 until a retail single became available (which, incidentally, is why hits like Led Zeppelin‘s “Stairway to Heaven” and No Doubt‘s “Don’t Speak” never appeared on the Hot 100). In earlier years, retail singles came to market fairly early in a song’s life-usually shortly after, or even before, a song came to radio.

But, during the 1990s, when labels would strategize number-one chart bows by significant hits, the retail release of some priority singles were withheld until radio audience reached maximum levels. Although some of these songs spent significant numbers of weeks at number one or in the top ten, the delay of the sales component ultimately shortened the spans these songs would spend on the chart. With the new methodology rewarding points for a song’s entire chart run, rather than confining points to weeks spent in the top ten, the shorter chart lives recorded by the songs that debuted at number one impact their all-time standings.

Gerry Rafferty Baker Street

Gerry Rafferty Baker Street was released in 1978, some consider one of the great years for Pop Music. This was three years after the dissolving of his previous band, Stealers Wheel due to contract disputes with the recording company. It reached number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and stayed there for six weeks. Rafferty was born and raised in Scotland.

Gerry Rafferty Baker Street featured saxophonist Raphael Ravenscroft. Ravenscroft was mostly known for his work with Pink Floyd that earned him critical success. There is an urban legend that Ravenscroft was never paid for his session work on Gerry Rafferty Baker Street. This is significant since Gerry Rafferty Baker Street was number 1 in the U.K. and number two in The U.S.A., and the royalties and sales that came with an international hit even in these days. When asked about this, Ravenscroft stated this is not true and that he was paid but there are still many who believe he was just not wanting to shed a bad light on Rafferty after his passing in 2011.

Gerry Rafferty Baker Street Music Video

The single version of Gerry Rafferty Baker Street was recorded with the tape of the album version sped up slightly to raise the tempo to be more radio-friendly. This also had the result of raising the key by a half tone.

Gerry Rafferty Baker Street Lyrics

Winding your way down on Baker Street
Light in your head and dead on your feet
Well another crazy day, you’ll drink the night away
And forget about everything

This city desert makes you feel so cold
It’s got so many people but it’s got no soul
And it’s taken you so long to find out you were wrong
When you thought it held everything

You used to think that it was so easy
You used to say that it was so easy
But you’re tryin’, you’re tryin’ now

Another year and then you’d be happy
Just one more year and then you’d be happy
But you’re cryin’, you’re cryin’ now

Way down the street there’s a lad in his place
He opens the door, he’s got that look on his face
And he asks you where you’ve been, you tell him who you’ve seen
And you talk about anything

He’s got this dream about buyin’ some land
He’s gonna give up the booze and the one night stands
And then he’ll settle down in some quiet little town
And forget about everything

But you know he’ll always keep movin’
You know he’s never gonna stop movin’
Cause he’s rollin’, he’s the rollin’ stone

And when you wake up it’s a new morning
The sun is shining, it’s a new morning
And you’re going, you’re going home

Maroon 5 One More Night

Maroon 5 keeps finding a way to blend their unique style into fascinating pop hits. In this age of sound-alike pop stars, it is refreshing to hear a band create their own sound and be successful to a broad range of listeners like Maroon 5 One More Night.

Maroon 5 One More Night Music Video

Maroon 5 One More Night have listed some of their musical influences as Prince, Michael Jackson, The Police, Oasis, Talking Heads and Shabba Ranks, as well as Stevie Wonder. You can here all these influences in their music and style clearly. It is not a surprise that they produce a poppy, dance-oriented version of Modern Rock with a semi-Reggae beat loosely infused. As a funny side note, the Los Angeles band’s previous name was ‘Kara’s Flowers’ due to the band having a “collective crush” on a girl they all knew. This may be part of the reason they write songs predominantly about love.

Ellie Goulding Lights

Ellie Goulding Lights was released in North America on August 20, 2011. One year later it is finally at the top of the charts. Ellie Goulding Lights was the third slowest song to reach the Top 40 by a female artist. Ellie Goulding Lights took nineteen weeks to make it to #40 and the longest ever to reach the top five.

Elena Jane “Ellie” Goulding is a British singer-songwriter who has enjoyed significant success in the U.K. and finally in The USA and Canada. She has won many awards in the U.K. and achieved critical acclaim to match her popularity. The music video was filmed nearly two years ago before the release of the single “Your Song”, a cover of the Elton John classic, “Lights” was released as a single months later. At one point it was not included in the album titled Lights and then the eventual EP Bright Lights in the U.K. The North American version does include the song on the album.

Ellie Goulding Lights Story

Ellie Goulding Lights received mostly positive reviews from critics. Horatia Harrod of The Daily Telegraph commented that the song is “threaded with dark thoughts, but set to an airy pop production bordering on polite. Her voice is the real star. She has the magical ability, not unlike her heroine, Björk, to sing with a sort of controlled tremulousness: her voice aches with vulnerability but never breaks.” The Guardian reviewer Johnny Dee described the song as “a welcome return to her patented folky-pop-with-some-tasteful-drum-and-bass-wobble sound”. Genevieve Koski of The A.V. Club was also positive of the song, giving it an A− and praising the song’s “organic-sounding” production and Goulding’s “ethereal, restrained” vocals, while Steven Hyden of The A.V. Club gave it a C, claiming that Goulding sounds too “restrained” and “aloof to the point of emotional constipation”.[15]‘s Bill Lamb rated the song three-and-a-half out of five stars, calling it “a pleasing, catchy slice of electro-pop” and noting that “Goulding’s voice has an edge of sadness and vulnerability that sets the song apart from standard dance pop”, but concluded, “In a pop music world dominated by distinctive vocalists, it is too easy for a song like ‘Lights’ to feel polite and get lost in the shuffle.”[

Professional DJs can play Ellie Goulding Lights in many different situations since it matches several genre and demographics.

David Guetta Featuring Usher Without You

I have been an admirer of David Guetta’s work as well as Usher over the years.  In recent years there are some that have believed that Usher had lost his edge and was now just another Pop musician. David Guetta Featuring Usher Without You demonstrates he still has it. It was not that long ago that James Brown had announced Usher as ‘The Godson of Soul’ at The Grammys.

His new works, David Guetta Featuring Usher Without You and “Climax”, Usher is showing some of the ‘oomph’ that has not been as evident in recent years. It is good to see and a great song that every professional DJ can include in our performances!

David Guetta Featuring Usher Without You Story

David Guetta Featuring Usher Without You is a song by French DJ David Guetta, featuring vocals from American recording artist Usher. It was released as the third single from Guetta’s fifth studio album, Nothing but the Beat on October 21, 2011. It was written by Usher, Taio Cruz,Rico Love, David Guetta, Giorgio Tuinfort and Frédéric Riesterer while being produced by Guetta, Tuinfort, Riesterer and Black Raw. The song peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Guetta’s third top ten single, following “Club Can’t Handle Me” and “Sexy Bitch“, as well as his highest peaking in the US to date. As of September 2012, David Guetta Featuring Usher Without You has sold 2,684,000 copies in the US. David Guetta Featuring Usher Without You was also covered by Lea Michele in Glee’s episode “Yes/No” and by Olly Murs for BBC Radio 1‘s Live Lounge in November 2011.

The electroballad features the anguished vocals of R&B singer Usher. Guetta told Billboard magazine it’s “maybe the biggest song I’ve made in my life.” He added: “We were in bargaining sessions for a while. Usher was saying, ‘I need this record for my album.’ I said, ‘I’m sorry, I cannot give it to you.’ After a while he called me back and gave in.” Guetta told MTV News why he chose Usher to guest on this song. “It’s just totally emotional,” he said. “Some of the record is a proper ballad, and then it goes to that crazy dance beat. It’s perfect for him, because he’s famous for his ballads. And he’s also now famous for those big club records that he comes with. He’s an amazing dancer, so I felt like he was the artist that I needed.” Usher told MTV News that this ode to not giving up on love in the face of adversity resonated with him personally. “I think the world wanted a record like that. David Guetta Featuring Usher Without You really spoke to the journey that I’ve actually been on in the last three years,” he said. “Traveling all around the world, music sounds different. There’s many different genres, and when you see R&B and pop and house, as well as electronic, come together, that’s the reality of what music is.”

Gotye Featuring Kimbra Somebody That I Used To Know

Following Fun. in the last posted video of songs that took an unusual route to Billboard success in The USA, Gotye Featuring Kimbra Somebody That I Used To Know found its way to the HOT 100 via popularity of a cover version on You Tube and iTunes by the Canadian band Walk Off The Earth. Strange to think a Belgian-Australian man and a New Zealand woman achieve commercial success in America via a Canadian cover of their song Gotye Featuring Kimbra Somebody That I Used To Know.

Gotye Featuring Kimbra Somebody That I Used To Know was #1 in Australia for eight weeks, the longest of any single since 1997. It is currently #26 on Billboard.

Gotye Featuring Kimbra Somebody That I Used To Know features tender but strong vocals from both artists and an amazing video.  The symbolic artistry of Gotye starting naked on a  white background and as the song continues his body and the background are covered with patches of ‘colored paint’ through stop motion animation. Kimbra begins naked and is facing the wall as she starts covered with ‘paint’ and it disappears after her vocal part. It ends with him having his colors and her naked without color, just skin. It is all tastefully done without any sexual components. I always appreciate recording artists that take visual risks in creativity and content.

Great song and video! The video premiered on 30 July 2011 and shows Gotye and Kimbra naked against a white backdrop, and while they sing, a pattern of paint gradually covers his skin and the backdrop via stop motion animation.
