Oh Baby, you're gone as Gangnam Style tops all-time video

IT'S the song that you can't get out of your head.

And it's going to be a problem for millions more, it seems.

YouTube has reported that global sensation PSY and his "Gangnam Style" music video surpassed Justin Bieber's "Baby" as the most viewed music video (and overall video) of all time.

As of noon on Saturday, the view counts stood at 805 million to 803 million.

By Monday morning, Gangnam Style had climbed to 817 million.

The counts do not include the thousands of parody videos that have been made as well as those featuring locals dancing to the internet sensation.

Bieber's video picked up the designation in July of 2010, when the then-rising star himself passed Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance".

Even though it was posted in February of 2010, "Baby" remains popular, continuing to garner between 350,000 and 500,000 views per day, the trends blog reported.

"PSY's video first spread from South Korea to the rest of the world in early August.

"It's been a massive hit at a global level unlike anything we've ever seen before. Each day, "Gangnam Style" is still being watched between seven and 10 million times.''

"Gangnam Style" and "PSY", respectively, have been the top rising searches on YouTube over the past six months. And these searches are coming from all over the world.

"Searches first spiked in South Korea in late July when the video was posted.

"We began to see search interest rise in the U.S. and other English-speaking nations over the next month until it began to peak in September in North America and Brazil.

"Gangnam Style" searches and viewing began to spike more broadly and in places like Europe and India in October.

"PSY's official channel now has over one billion views, a considerable number. Views on Bieber's VEVO channel alone, however, still total over three billion.''
