WonkeyDude98 Analysis: Watch Me vs. Hit the Quan

Hello, and for the New Years, I want to do something different. A comparison. There's Watch Me, a song I have bashed to all ends of the Earth (and I'd like to thank my supporters, for as I speak my Watch Me post is my second most upvoted post on the site). Then there's Hit the Quan, a song I only recently listened to (and only just listened to in full as I type this). We are going to compare them and ultimately find out what's the better song.

Beat: First, let's compare their production. I already talked about how Watch Me has an annoyingly minimalist beat with its electronic simplicity and swampy bass line, but it was neat to dance to. Hit the Quan's beat is also cheap, but not electronically. It's just an oily synth line put up against a creaky bass. You cannot dance to it. Point to Watch Me.

Vocals: Next, let's compare their vocals. Silento, on one hand, sounded whiny and juvenile, especially when he shouted "watch me watch me OOH". @iheartmemphis was beyond that. He sounded like his was thoroughly constipated. It didn't help when he was literally going "DUDUDUDUDU" in the first verse. Point to Watch Me.

Lyrics: Now, let's look at the lyrics. Watch Me's lyrics are nothing to talk about, he just wants people to do random dances, such as the Whip and Nae Nae, which he claims to be his own (we'll get to that). Hit the Quan, the lyrics don't make a lot of sense, but it doesn't harm me, apart from the aforementioned gibbering in the first verse and rhyming crazy with itself four times. Also, Hit the Quan didn't repeat a select few words until your skull cracks. Point to Hit the Quan (maybe I should give it two).

Originality: Yeah you know where this will be going to. Finally, let's see which is less lazy. Watch Me not only repeats a select few words over and over, those words happen to be dances which he claims as his own despite them NOT being his, including the Superman from Crank That (Soulja Boy). Like we needed that back. Meanwhile, Hit the Quan doesn't really have plagiarism in it. Two points Hit the Quan for massive plagiarism to none.

So, Watch Me has 2 points and Hit the Quan has 3. The winner is Hit the Quan. By no means am I recommending any of these. Both get a 0 out of 5, but I think my explanations were enough to justify Hit the Quan being better.


They are both horrible songs - Martinglez

These songs must die. - RiverClanRocks

Unfortunately they won't. They are the new ChaChaSlide. They will stay for the next 30 years. - WonkeyDude98

Adoseofbuckley much? - SirSkeletorThe3rd

@SirSkeletorThe3rd: For Watch Me, yes. For Hit the Quan, that is also likely since they are pretty much the same song. I suspect (unfortunately) Hit the Quan will die quicker because of its inability to dance to it. - WonkeyDude98

I hate both, but yeah, Hit The Quan is WAY BETTER. - visitor

Yeah, at least HTQ was marginally original and had more than 6 words. - WonkeyDude98

There are exactly 34 words - ProPanda

In Watch Me... - ProPanda

And top 3 for several weeks.

End me. - WonkeyDude98

Honestly I' going to say this, Watch Me is the worst song I HAVE EVER HEARD! - LJJ207

Lol, I only rated it a 0 out of 5 when there were much worse, and it barely scraped my top 10 worst of 2015. - WonkeyDude98

By the way, where is your worst of 2015? - LJJ207

My worst of 2015 has The Hills, Cool For The Summer, and All Eyes On You on top. - WonkeyDude98

K - LJJ207

Were is my eggs by pay shimurd? - AlphaQ

Those songs are the antonym of originality. - Elina

Never has someone descrived them so simply and yet so profoundly. - WonkeyDude98

Do one for Baby and Friday since you haven't done them - AlphaQ

As a matter of fact, I did one for both at the same time. - WonkeyDude98

Juju on that beat. Slide drop, hit them folks don't stop. Lol - ProPanda

Well, at least neither of these are the WORST Vine song... - WonkeyDude98

Juju is better than both of these combined lmao - ProPanda

Lol no it's not, it's worse - WonkeyDude98

At least Juju is catchy, and you know... dance-able. - ProPanda
