– (singing along) ♪ …and singin’
and movin’ to the groovin’ ♪ – (singing along)
♪ I’m on the highway to hell ♪ – I feel like I need to be
in the back of a pickup truck. ♪ (upbeat intro) ♪ – (FBE) We’re going back
a few decades to see if you know
some songs from the ’70s. – I’m gonna do bad at this. My sister would be great at this.
She loves ’70s music. – Oh! Get ready to be
disappointed, everybody. – I feel like I’ll do good
on the rock songs, but if it’s disco or something,
(laughing) I don’t know. – That’s, like, when my mom grew up,
so she always just always played ’70s music,
so I’m probably gonna know a lot of it. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Go on, now go,
walk out the door ♪ ♪ Just turn around now
’cause you’re not welcome anymore ♪ ♪ Weren’t you the one who tried… ♪
– Oh, I love this song. – Why do I just see John Travolta
just struttin’ right now? – ♪ Did you think
I’d lay down and die? ♪ ♪ Oh no, not I… ♪ – (singing along) ♪ I will survive ♪ – ♪ Oh, as long
as I know how to love ♪ – (singing along)
♪ I know I’m still alive ♪ ♪ I’ve got all my life to live ♪ ♪ And I’ve got all my love to give ♪ ♪ And I’ll survive ♪ – ♪ I will survive ♪ ♪ I will survive ♪ – Love it. It’s a classic. It’s definitely middle school dance,
to get everyone dancing when they’re all on their own sides. – (FBE) Do you know this song?
– I do know the song. “I Will Survive,”
but I don’t know the artist. – It’s “I Will Survive,”
but I don’t know who it’s by. – “I Will Survive,”
and I wanna say Diana Ross. – It’s “I Will Survive”
by Gloria Gaynor. – (FBE) This is “I Will Survive”
by Gloria Gaynor. – “Gloria Gaynor.”
I’ve never heard of her. – I wouldn’t have known
who that was. – Weird how a song
can be so widely known, and then you have
no idea who the person is. – That is my feminist pump up jam,
when I’m just like, “Yeah, I don’t need nobody.” ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Imagine all… ♪
– (singing along) ♪ …the people ♪ ♪ (piano ballad) ♪ – ♪ Living life in peace ♪ – (singing along) ♪ You… ♪ (chuckling) – ♪ You may say I’m a dreamer ♪ – Oh, I didn’t know
this came out in the ’70s. I thought it was ’60s. – ♪ But I’m not the only one ♪ – This song is so pretty. – This song makes me cry all the time. I’m starting to tear up
a little bit right now, too. – ♪ …you’ll join us ♪ – I remember listening to The Beatles
for the first time, and I cried. Fantastic song. – (FBE) Do you know this one?
– It sounds familiar. I just don’t know. – “Imagine” by The Beatles. – I know it’s John Lennon.
I don’t know the name of the song. – “Imagine,” John Lennon. – “Imagine,” John Lennon. – That’s “Imagine” by John Lennon. – (FBE) This is “Imagine”
by John Lennon, and the song
is a strong political message sugarcoated in a beautiful melody. Lennon realized
that the softer approach would bring the song
to a wider audience, who hopefully
would listen to its message. – Well, it worked
because we’re still listening to it. – His voice is just
very interesting to me. I think it’s gorgeous. And then you
actually listen to the lyrics and it’s really, really powerful. – These are always the topics
that are really tough to talk about, so for you to put it
into a song like that, where it’s not so in your face–
it’s kind of subtle, but it’s still getting the point across. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ ♪ (piano ditty) ♪ – ♪ Well, I hope Neil Young
will remember ♪ ♪ (country music) ♪ ♪ A Southern man
don’t need him around… ♪ – I know this song really well. – (singing along)
♪ Sweet home Alabama ♪ – There it is. There it is! – (giggling) – ♪ Where the skies are so blue ♪ – I feel like I need to be
in the back of a pickup truck, listening to this. – (singing along)
♪ Sweet home Alabama ♪ ♪ (vocalizing) ♪
♪ (twangy guitar) ♪ – ♪ Lord, I’m coming home to you ♪ – I don’t like country, but I think
that’s definitely a classic. This pops off. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– “Sweet Home Alabama.” Still don’t know the artist. – This is “Sweet Home Alabama.” I don’t know who this artist is. – “Sweet Home Alabama,”
Lynyrd Skynyrd? – So it’s “Sweet Home Alabama”
by Lynyrd Skynyrd? – This is “Sweet Home Alabama,”
Lynyrd Skynyrd. – (FBE) This is “Sweet Home Alabama,”
and it’s by Lynyrd Skynyrd. – I wouldn’t even be able
to tell you who that was. – Duh! See… (sighing)
my mom’s gonna be so pissed at me. – That chorus is so classic. And it’s sweet, you know? Kind of want to sip on some iced tea
while I’m listening to it. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Thirteen month old baby ♪ ♪ (funk music) ♪ (snapping along) ♪ Broke the looking glass ♪ – This is such a great song. – When I feel real sassy
and I can really sing, I listen to this song. – ♪ The good things in your past ♪ – (singing along)
♪ When you believe in things ♪ ♪ That you don’t understand ♪ – ♪ Then you suffer ♪ – (singing along)
♪ Superstition ain’t the way ♪ That’s such a funky song. Like, that’s the literal
definition of funk to me. – (FBE) Do you know this one?
– Um, “Superstitious.” I don’t know the artist. – “Superstitious,”
and that’s Stevie Wonder? – It’s “Superstition,”
Stevie Wonder? – It’s “Superstition”
by Stevie Wonder. – “Superstition” by Stevie Wonder. – This is “Superstition”
by Stevie Wonder. – (FBE) Yes, this is
“Superstition” by Stevie Wonder. He actually signed to Motown Records
when he was just 11 years old, and released his first album
at the age of 12. – Oh my god! – (FBE) At the time, he was known
as “Little Stevie Wonder” and billed as a prodigy
and boy genius. – Well, I feel like they were right. He definitely made an impact. – If he really had that
passion and that talent, you could start super young,
and he clearly did, and that’s so impressive to release
one of your first albums at age 12. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ But now there’s nowhere to hide ♪ ♪ Since you pushed my love… ♪ – Grease. I was in
a production of Grease, so I know this song. – I don’t know if
I’ve ever heard this song. – ♪ Hopelessly devoted to you ♪ – This is bringing
so many memories back. – You ever just want
to hug yourself and cry? – ♪ …to you ♪ – This song sounds
like every single song in a ’70s high school film
where they’re all dancing at prom. – (FBE) Do you know this one?
– No. – I don’t know. – “Hopelessly Devoted to You,”
and I think it’s by Dolly Parton. – The title is
“Hopelessly Devoted to You.” Her character,
she was Sandy in Grease. – It’s “Hopelessly Devoted”
by– well, Sandy in the musical, but Olivia Newton-John
is singing it. – (FBE) This is
“Hopelessly Devoted to You” by Olivia Newton-John.
– Okay. – (FBE) And this is originally from
the soundtrack of the movie Grease. – That’s awkward. I’ve seen Grease before! – I don’t know why I didn’t know
that was from Grease. I haven’t seen Grease in so long. – Usually, I’m not a fan
of musical movies, but Grease, that has no bad songs. – That song brought me
to tears every time. Like, even now, to this day,
I’ll watch that movie and I’ll cry listening to it. I’m like, “Oh my gosh,
I feel you, girl!” ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Yeah, they were dancin’… ♪ – (singing along) ♪ …and singin’
and movin’ to the groovin’ ♪ – ♪ And just when… ♪
– (singing along) ♪ …it hit me ♪ ♪ Somebody turned around and shouted ♪ – (singing along) ♪ Play
that funky music, white boy ♪ – ♪ Play that funky music right ♪ – (singing along) ♪ Play
that funky music, white boy ♪ – ♪ Lay down the boogie and play
that funky music till you die ♪ (singer chuckling) ♪ ‘Til you die ♪ – Oh, I thought it was good. I think it’s very iconic for the ’70s. I feel like everyone,
when you think of the ’70s, you think of that song. – (FBE) Do you know this one? – “Play That Funky Music.” I don’t think I’m gonna know this one. – “Play That Funky Music.” I don’t think I know who it’s by. – “Play That Funky Music”? I have no idea who it’s by, though. – “Play That Funky Music White Boy.” Artist, still don’t know. – (FBE) This is
“Play That Funky Music,” and it’s by Wild Cherry.
– Oh, okay, I don’t know them. (laughing) I’m like, all right. – The only Wild Cherry I know
is a Slurpee from 7-Eleven. – That’s such an iconic song,
and I’ve never heard of you at all. That’s crazy. – The way I heard this song first,
Dance Dance Revolution, when I was nine. So good and I love this song. This song’s great. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Goin’ down ♪ ♪ Party time ♪ – Yeah, here’s some rock. – ♪ My friends are
gonna be there too ♪ ♪ (rock music building up) ♪ – (singing along) ♪ I’m
on the highway to hell ♪ Oh! I love this song. – This is what my mom
made me listen to. – I listen to this
on the freeway in my little Fiat. – ♪ Highway to hell ♪ – Who is this by? – ♪ I’m on the highway to hell ♪ – This is a jam. I remember always–
I used to jam out. This was that song,
when I was a kid, that I felt like
such a bad ass listening to. – (FBE) Do you know this one? – Yeah, “Highway to Hell.”
Artist, I don’t know. – “Highway to Hell,”
but I can’t, for the life of me, even guess who the artist is. – “Highway to Hell,” AC/DC. – This is “Highway to Hell” by AC/DC. – This song is
“Highway to Hell,” AC/DC. – AC/DC’s such a great band. They’re the reason why
I’m actually into any type of rock music at all. – I’m not super familiar with AC/DC,
but this is definitely a song you hear all the time. – That’s just something
that I’ve heard a ton growing up. It’s very dad rock,
but it’s the dad rock that I like. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – Thanks for watching “Do They Know It?”
