– (singing along)
♪ …hot stuff, baby, this evenin’ ♪ – This song is classic.
– ♪ Jungle boogie ♪ – I guess I do like the ’70s. ♪ (upbeat intro) ♪ – (FBE) So we’re going
to do something fun today. – Okay. Fun fun
or (facetiously) “fun”? – (FBE) We’re going to see how well
you know music from the ’70s. – I don’t. We can stop right now. (laughing) I don’t know that many artists
from the ’70s. – I’m really bad at the ’80s,
so I can only imagine how horrible I’ll be at the ’70s. – When I think ’70s, I can’t think
of a specific artist, but I feel like I probably know
some of them because I like oldies. – I’m hyped.
Okay, cool. From the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s,
I feel like I listen to a decent amount of music. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ ♪ (soulful funk music) ♪ – ♪ I’ve been really tryin’, baby ♪ – Woo-hoo-hoo! I didn’t know this was from the ’70s. – I have heard this song
in every awkward sex scene that I’ve watched with my parents. – ♪ And if you feel… ♪ – He’s such a legend.
Love this guy. – So much soul and power in this song. He’s so– (dreamy sigh). – ♪ Woo! ♪ ♪ Let’s get it on ♪ – This song has been memed so much. – ♪ Let’s get it on ♪ – Every time I listen to this song,
it feels like a cringy moment of a guy trying
to look cool and impress, but is just a total failure. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– Um, “Let’s Get It On”? I’m not sure by who. – “Get It On,” and I have
no idea who the artist is. – It’s Marvin Gaye, “Let’s Get It On.” – “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye. – “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye. – (FBE) So this is
“Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye. – Marvin Gaye? I would’ve never gotten that. – I love this song. I just feel like it’s so groovy. You just move to the music
and his voice is so good. He’s so talented. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ And I think it’s gonna… ♪ – (singing along)
♪ …be a long, long time ♪ – ♪ ‘Till touch down… ♪
– I know this one, too! – ♪ I’m not the man
they think I am at home ♪ – (singing along) ♪ Oh, no, no… ♪ – Don’t know this song.
I’ve never heard of it. – ♪ Rocket man
burning out his fuse… ♪ – I don’t think I’ve ever heard
this song before, actually. ♪ (guitar strumming) ♪ – ♪ And I think it’s
gonna be a long, long time ♪ – Man, I didn’t know
I loved ’70s music this much. This is a classic. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– No. – No idea.
I have no idea. – “Rocket Man” by Elton John? – “Rocket Man,” Elton John? – Elton John, “Rocket Man.” – “Rocket Man” by Elton John. – “Rocket Man” by Elton John. I’m 2-2! – (FBE) This is “Rocket Man”
by Elton John. – I got it. – I can hear my best friend
right now, saying, “How do you not know Elton John?” – He’s a very well-known artist
and I think he’s done a lot of really awesome things,
both for the LGBTQ community and the music community,
so he has a dual purpose on the planet. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Dialed about
a thousand numbers lately ♪ ♪ Almost rang the phone off the wall ♪ ♪ Lookin’ for some… ♪ – (singing along)
♪ …hot stuff, baby, this evenin’ ♪ – ♪ I need some hot stuff… ♪ – Yeah, okay, I’ve heard
this one before. – ♪ I want some hot stuff,
baby, this evenin’ ♪ – This is funky. I like this. – I’ve heard this song. – ♪ Gotta have some love tonight ♪ – I’ve seen this in
a bunch of disco scenes. Any time anyone’s spinning
and they’re like, “Hoo!” This is playing and they
look like hot stuff, baby. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– I know it’s “Hot Stuff” but I don’t know the artist. – “Hot Stuff”?
I don’t know who it’s by. – “Hot Stuff”?
Aretha Franklin? – It’s “Hot Stuff”?
Pat Benatar? – (FBE) So this is “Hot Stuff”
by Donna Summer. – Ah! I’ve never heard
of Donna Summer before. – I have no idea who Donna Summer is,
but I’ve definitely heard “Hot Stuff” before. – Damn it! I always miss Donna Summer. I’ve heard her name so much,
but I don’t know– I’ve never followed
Donna Summer at all. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ There is no pain,
you are receding ♪ – I’ve heard this one before.
Who is it? – ♪ A distant ship’s smoke… ♪
– Oh my gosh. This is gonna kill me. – ♪ …on the horizon ♪ – This is the mellow out playlist. – ♪ You are only coming
through in waves ♪ – This is kind of sad. I’ve never heard it before.
It’s pretty sweet. – ♪ But I can’t hear… ♪
– Ah, I like that song. It’s super chill and super mellow. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– I have no idea who this guy is. I have no idea what this song is. – I’ve heard it before,
but I just don’t know the artist. – I’ve for sure heard it. I want to say, 100%,
I have it on my playlist. I just can’t remember it. – Pink Floyd, “Comfortably Numb.” – (FBE) This is
“Comfortably Numb” by Pink Floyd. – Oh, I’m not a super big
Pink Floyd fan. It’s just some of the songs
are 25 minutes long and I just don’t have
the patience for that. – I’ve never really listened
to too much Pink Floyd, so this is new to me,
and, yeah, this is pretty sweet. I might have to actually
get into them now. – I love Pink Floyd. “Dark Side of the Moon,”
that was my whole jam. That whole era. I guess I do like the ’70s. – (FBE) So a lot of people think
this song is about drugs, but Roger Waters says
it is actually about how he would feel
when he was a kid with a high fever. He said that, as an adult,
he has those feelings again sometimes and feels a detachment from reality. – I swore it was about drugs, too. – All right, that’s cool. I mean, it’s his song. Whatever he wants it to be about. – You know what?
That’s a really good cover up. (feigned cough) I was just sick, dude. I swear! – That’s amazing
about music and lyrics. People take it
on their own perspective and how they’re feeling,
even though it was written for another purpose. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ ♪ (upbeat funk music) ♪
(snapping fingers) – All right, another
struttin’ down the street song. ♪ (brassy music) ♪ – Oh, got that funk. – ♪ Jungle boogie ♪ – Okay, I’ve heard this before. – It makes me want to,
like… (giggling) – ♪ Jungle boogie (get it on) ♪ – I haven’t heard of this, but I’m actually really
digging this one. – This song is classic.
– ♪ Well, ya get down ♪ ♪ Jungle boogie ♪ ♪ Jungle boogie (shake it around) ♪ – I liked that one. It has a really
boogie kind of style to it. – (FBE) Do you know this one?
– I don’t know it. – Nope, no clue. – I don’t think I’ve ever heard
of that song in my life. – It’s called “Jungle Boogie,”
but I don’t know the artist. – “Jungle Boogie.” I don’t know who it’s by. – (FBE) This is “Jungle Boogie”
by Kool and the Gang. – “Kool and the Gang”? Oh, I’ve never heard of them. But I’ve heard the song. – “Kool and the Gang.” Okay, that’s awesome.
It’s a cool song. It makes sense. – “Kool and the Gang.” Okay, definitely a cool song.
And the gang sounds hot. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ I was born in the wagon
of a travellin’ show ♪ ♪ My mama used to dance
for the money they’d throw ♪ ♪ Papa would do whatever he could ♪ – That voice. – The music behind this
is really weird. It sounds like it belongs in a circus. – ♪ …sell a couple bottles
of doctor good ♪ ♪ (carnival-ish music) ♪ ♪ Gypsies, tramps, and thieves ♪ – Oh, I feel like I’ve heard this. – ♪ …the people of the town ♪ – That voice is like… – Who are you?
Who are you?! (laughing) – ♪ But every night,
all the men would come around ♪ ♪ And lay their money down ♪ – (chuckling) I don’t know
what that was, but it sounded weirdly haunting,
like that would play in the back of a weird
David Bowie movie. – (FBE) So do you know it?
– No. – No. – No, absolutely not. – I know the song,
but I don’t know who sings it. – This is “Gypsies,
Tramps and Thieves” by Cher. – (FBE) So this is “Gypsies,
Tramps and Thieves” by Cher. – All right, Cher
is a name that I know, but I can’t name a single Cher song. – That’s right! Cher was making a lot
of banging music in the ’70s. – I’ve seen people dress up
like Sonny and Cher for Halloween, and I’d recognize them as celebrities,
but I don’t think I’ve ever listened to their actual music. – Cher is interesting in and of herself,
so I feel like all of her music therefore is interesting. She’s a little bit out there
and a little bit weird and takes risks with her music,
so every song is kind of a hit, even if it’s not the greatest song,
because everyone is so interested in her herself. – (FBE) So our very own Don
from Elders React actually helped produce this song.
– Really?! That is so cool! – No way! Man, what a stud.
That’s so sick. – No way! Don, shout-out to you. That’s awesome! What? I didn’t know
he was a music producer. – I love all of the music episodes
when he’s like, “You know, I was a music producer,”
and then he always gets them wrong, but it’s really cute. – I always knew Don was so cool. Every time you talked to him,
you’re like, “Wait, what? Like, you did that?” Oh, he was so cool. You forget he was
in the music industry. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Mama, life had just begun ♪ – Really? Really? Come on! (singing along)
♪ …thrown it all away ♪ – This is such a good one. – (singing along) ♪ Mama, ooh ♪ – Oh my god! – ♪ Didn’t mean to make you cry ♪ – Freddie Mercury had some pipes. – (singing along) ♪ …back again
this time tomorrow ♪ – ♪ Carry on, carry on ♪ – It’s so good.
– ♪ Nothing really matters ♪ – That song is just a classic. It’s such a fun song to sing along to,
but it’s so hard to sing along to, so everyone just sounds terrible, but it’s a great time
when it comes on. – (FBE) Do you know it? – I don’t exactly know
the name of the song. I’m pretty sure it’s by Queen. – This is “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen. – “Bohemian Rhapsody” by
Freddie Mercury himself or Queen. – It is “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen. – This is a classic. This is “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen. – If you want something
that everyone will sing along to, it’s gonna be that song. – I will scream sing
this song in my car by myself or with others. You’re not safe. If it comes on the radio,
I’m singing it. – Queen is one of my
all-time favorite bands ever, and “Bohemian Rhapsody”
is such a weird, different– it’s completely separate
from anything else and it’s so unique and amazing. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – Thanks for watching “Do They Know It?”
