There have been many songs in the history of songs which include the instructions on how to do the dance…from the twist to timewarp (which is a parody on action/word songs). These songs make everyone happy because everyone can join in and everyone looks as silly as everyone else.
I remember going to a youth club where some guests came and we all did the cha cha slide together. It was awesome.
And so now we have ‘Watch me! (Whip/Nae Nae)‘
The song is basically ‘watch me’ followed by a dance move such as ‘whip’ ‘naenae’ ‘superman’ and ‘bop’.
This has inspired me to invent a game/compose a song.
For the game, stand group in a circle and give the group a topic eg bible characters; superheroes; animals. Each person then has to say ‘watch me’ followed by something from the topic eg Samson, Thor, Frog. They then have to do a dance move to represent that thing – Samson running his hands through his hair and then pushing over the temple columns, Thor calling lightning from the sky and aiming it at something, Frog…self explanatory. Then everyone has to join in with the dance move before moving onto the next person.
For the song, take the best ideas from the game and put them into a preformed order.
I can’t see any reason why this shouldn’t be the best game/song ever created
