Gangnam Style unplugged: Singapore musicians cover hit song


Musicians around the world have been re-interpreting Psy's Gangnam Style hit, which has become the second most-watched YouTube video in history with 670 million views.

In Singapore, musicians have also experimented with various styles - acoustic, rap and even a cappella versions - and posted them online. SundayLife! found at least four such Gangnam Style cover versions.

Some of the musicians say they wanted to put their own spin on the song, while others admit they wanted to ride on the popularity of the original video.

One of the most popular ones is by Singapore musician and part-time DJ Stephanie Koh, 20. She stripped away the electronic sound of the mega-hit Gangnam Style and do it with just one guitar and herself on vocals.
