– I’m gonna get one of these,
full song title and artist. – ♪ I’m so in love with you ♪ – It’s not gonna be this one, though. ♪ (upbeat intro) ♪ – (FBE) So we’re going back
a few decades and checking out
some music from the ’70s. – Oh, damn. That’s even further back
than the ’80s. I didn’t do so great on that one. – I did not do good
on the last episode and I know I’m not gonna do
good on this episode. – It’s such a broad spectrum of music. I can’t know every ’70s song! – Perfect! I can do this. – Honestly, I’m so good at this. I feel like I’m gonna
get all of these songs. – These are the episodes
that my parents judge me on the most since that’s
the decade they grew up in and were teenagers.
They’re like, “Psssh! That was easy.” ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ I shot the sheriff ♪ – (singing along)
♪ But I didn’t shoot the deputy ♪ – I got it already. – Oh, yeah! I know this one. ♪ (reggae beat) ♪ – ♪ All around in my hometown ♪ – Wow, I’m so lost. – ♪ They’re trying to track… ♪
– This sounds like reggae. – It’s groovy,
but I don’t know what it is. – ♪ They say they
want to bring me in guilty ♪ – Man, this is not
sounding all that familiar. – ♪ For the killing of a deputy ♪ – Heck yeah.
I’ll say this. It’s a cover. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– Okay, I want to make a guess. I don’t know the song name
but I want to guess that it’s Bob Marley. – It’s “I Shot the Sheriff,”
but I don’t know who it’s by. – That’s Bob Marley,
“I Shot the Sheriff.” – “I Shot the Sheriff”
by Eric Clapton? – “I Shot the Sheriff,”
originally by Bob Marley, but covered by Eric Clapton. – (FBE) This is called
“I Shot the Sheriff.” This is Eric Clapton.
– “I Shot the Sheriff”? The was such a smooth song
for saying you shot somebody. – Oh, Eric Clapton?
I’ve never heard of him. – I know his voice from several songs. I know how to play “Layla” on guitar.
“Cocaine” is a really good song. – (FBE) Bob Marley did
originally record this song in 1973, but Eric Clapton’s version
became a number one hit in 1974 and exposed Marley
to a broader rock audience. – Oh, that’s interesting. – That’s why it sounded so familiar! – Oh my god! All right,
that’s kind of embarrassing, but that’s the version
that I remember. – It’s so interesting. Covers can be more popular
by the band that has covered it than by the actual band. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ ♪ (brassy music) ♪
– Oh, yeah! – I know this song.
– ♪ I can’t wait… ♪ – Sounds like the first day
of summer break. – ♪ …till I see you again ♪ ♪ Yeah, yeah ♪
– I’ve definitely heard of this. – ♪ (humming tune) ♪ – Okay, I feel like this
is a one-hit wonder. – ♪ I want to put on… ♪ – (singing along) ♪ …put on
my my my my my boogie shoes ♪ – Who is this, though? – I feel like that song just kind of
embodies the entire ’70s. – (FBE) Do you know that one?
– Uh, no. – “Boogie Shoes.”
I don’t know. It’s not Earth, Wind & Fire. – I’m gonna guess the Bee Gees,
um, “Boogie Shoes.” – (FBE) This is called “Boogie Shoes,”
and it’s by KC and the Sunshine Band. – Okay, I’ve never heard of them. – Oh! My dad has played them.
I know that. – That does paint
a very specific ’70s picture where we’re in our burnt
orange station wagon, driving in Utah
and avocado green seats and every ’70s stereotype
you could think of ever. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ I was a lonely teenage
broncin’ buck ♪ ♪ With a pink carnation and a– ♪
– Yes! Yes! Okay, I know this one. – This song is so sad
if you know what it’s about, but it’s so good. – ♪ …the music died ♪ ♪ I started singing ♪ ♪ Bye, bye Miss… ♪
– (singing along) ♪ Miss American Pie ♪ Whoa! – (singing along)
♪ …bye, Miss American Pie ♪ – (singing along)
♪ Drove my Chevy to the levee ♪ ♪ But the levee was dry ♪ – ♪ Them good old boys
were drinking whiskey n’ rye ♪ ♪ Singing, “This’ll
be the day that I die.” ♪ – This is a classic. – ♪ “This’ll be the day that I die.” – That is such a long song. I think it’s eight and a half minutes. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– Is this called “The Day I Die”? – This is “American Pie,”
and it is by… it lets me draw
a little question in the air. I don’t know! – “American Pie” by Don something. – It’s “American Pie” by–
I want to say it’s Don something. – (FBE) So this is “American Pie,”
and it’s by Don McLean. – Oh. Okay.
I don’t know who that is. – It’s about the musicians
that died in the airplane, right? Yeah, that’s both historically topical
and just a really good song to listen to. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ ♪ (disco music) ♪ – Oh my gosh!
I don’t know any– wait. – How do you go from
“American Pie” to this? Such a classic song–
oh, wait, no, this is a classic song, too. – This is reminding– oh… (singing along)
♪ …take me to Funkytown ♪ Everyone knows this. – Okay, I know the song. – ♪ …Funkytown ♪ ♪ Won’t you take me to Funkytown ♪ – This was in a Shrek movie.
Maybe it was Shrek 2. I don’t know. – I remember this from Shrek.
I’m sorry. ♪ (disco music) ♪ – ♪ (vocalizing tune) ♪ – ♪ (vocalizing tune) ♪ – I would never voluntarily listen
to that on my free time. It’s just a little too weird for me. – (FBE) All right, so do you know it?
– “Funkytown.” I have no idea who it’s by. – “Funkytown.” I don’t know
who it’s by, though. – “Funkytown,” and I’m pretty sure
this one is the Bee Gees. – (FBE) This is called “Funkytown”
and this is by a band called Lipps, Inc.
and it’s pronounced “lip sync.” – (laughing) All right,
that’s pretty creative. Okay, I like that one. – That song is iconic, too.

in a Guardians movie, like Vol. 3. ♪ (mellow beat) ♪ – ♪ And I want… ♪ – This song is so beautiful. – ♪ …to spend my life with you ♪

that’s always in cheesy rom-com movies. – (FBE) Do you know this one?
– I don’t know. I know I’ve heard it before. – I do know it. I do not know the name or the artist. – Bobby Caldwell.
I don’t know the name of the song. – Al Green, “Let’s Stay Together.” – (FBE) This is called
“Let’s Stay Together” and it’s by Al Green.
– Al Green? Really? I was thinking Marvin Gaye. – That’s like a sexy
cooking song, I feel like. It’s a sexy dinner song,
where you’re trying to woo someone and you’re like, “Ooh,
let me just put on this guy for ya.” ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – Oh, hell yeah!
– ♪ Though my eyes… ♪ – (singing along)
♪ …could see I still… ♪ I [bleep] love Supernatural! It’s horrible that that’s
the first place my mind goes to. – Okay, I know this for sure. – ♪ …still was a mad man ♪ ♪ I hear the voices
when I’m dreaming ♪ – Okay, okay, this is it!

I love that. – (FBE) Do you know this song?

Aerosmith? – “Carry On My Wayward Son” by Kansas. – “Carry On My Wayward Son” by Kansas. – (FBE) This is called
“Carry On Wayward Son,” and it’s by Kansas.

– BOO! [Bleep] yeah! – ♪ And everyone you fight ♪ ♪ And all that is gone now ♪ – This sounds like a gospel song. – It sounds so powerful. – ♪ And everything under… ♪
– I’ve heard of this. – No clue. – ♪ But the sun is
eclipsed by the moon ♪ – I don’t recognize any of that. – It sounded like a choir
and then a band mushed together to make this song
and it sounded pretty good. It sounded intense. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– No. – I don’t even think
I’ve ever heard it before. – I have no idea. – “Dark Side of the Moon.”
It’s by Pink Floyd. – This is Pink Floyd, “Eclipse.” – (FBE) This is called “Eclipse,”
and it’s by Pink Floyd. – Oh. – All right, yeah! I’m not really, really
familiar with them, but I just listened to it
looking on YouTube. – (FBE) “Eclipse” is
the last track on their album Dark Side of the Moon
and closes out with the lyrics “There is no dark side
of the moon really. Matter of fact, it’s all dark.”
– Wow, that’s depressing. – Damn, I thought we were going
with a little positive twist. – Every Pink Floyd song
is like watching Inception ten times in a row. I’m just like, “What?
Is anything real? Am I real?” I don’t know! By the time a Pink Floyd song is over,
I’m like, “What year is it?” ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – Thanks for watching
