♪ (guitar riff) ♪ – ♪ Kiss ♪ – Okay, that was the best one. – I actually know some of these. Yay! – ♪ Dancing til I thought
I’d lose my breath ♪ – Never mind.
I take it back. ♪ (upbeat intro) ♪ – (FBE) So we are heading back
to the ’80s today to see if you recognize some music.
– Oh, gosh. I always don’t do the best at these. – I honestly have
no real frame of reference of what is ’80s until I hear a song
that I’m familiar with and then I’m like,
“Oh, okay, so that kind of era.” – When I started on this show,
I had no ’80s knowledge, but now I’ve been
in so many ’80s episodes and I’ve read so many comments
of suggests for next songs. I’ve been doing research!
I’m getting ahead of the game. – Even though
I wasn’t exposed to stuff, I do get exposed to it here,
which is really interesting and, you know,
I feel less of a dumb ass when I come here. – I’m scared!
What if I don’t know it? – I don’t know why,
but I like ’70s and ’90s, and the ’80s is just kind of a blur,
but we’ll see how it goes. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ I don’t give a damn ’bout
my reputation ♪ – Oh, okay.
I know this song. – ♪ Never said I wanted
to improve my station ♪ ♪ (rock music) ♪ ♪ An’ I’m only doin’ good
when I’m havin’ fun ♪ – I think I know this one!
This reminds me of Shrek. I think it was in Shrek. – ♪ Oh no, not me ♪ – I definitely heard this song
a lot when I was younger. – ♪ Oh no, not me ♪ – God, what
a good just rock out song. – (FBE) Do you know this one?
– Okay, I don’t know the artist, but I’m pretty sure
the name of the song is called “Bad Reputation.” – Uh, “Reputation”?
Is it Pat Benatar? – “Bad Reputation” by…
mmmm… AC/DC? – “Bad Reputation”
is the name of the song, and I think it’s by Joan Jett. – (FBE) So this
is called “Bad Reputation.” It’s by Joan Jett. – Okay, yeah, I wouldn’t
have gotten that right. – Oh, I’m stupid. Okay. I’m gonna “Jett” on out of here, then. – She has a very unique voice. It was one of the very first
raspy female singers that I’ve ever heard. – (FBE) So Joan would
consider this her signature song, but most people remember her
for “I Love Rock and Roll.” – Oh, that’s her? – Yes, okay, I totally can hear
the connection in my mind now. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ It’s the eye of the… ♪
– (singing along) ♪ …tiger ♪ – I jam to this song! This is one of my favorite songs
to play through on Rock Band. This is my [bleep]. – ♪ …rival ♪ ♪ And the last known… ♪ – I’m trying to think of what it is. This is the cheesiest song
they use in all the workout scenes. ♪ With the eye… ♪ – (singing along) ♪ …of the tiger ♪ So good. It’s the one song
that must always be played any time there’s a montage happening. – (FBE) All right,
do you know this one? – Okay, it’s called
“Eye of the Tiger,” but I don’t know who it’s by. – “Eye of the Tiger.”
I don’t know the band. – “Eye of the Tiger” by…
what is the name of the band, though? – (FBE) This is “Eye of the Tiger,”
and it’s by Survivor. – Oh, I would have
never guessed Survivor. – I’m so ashamed. – (FBE) According to Billboard,
this was the number one song of 1982. – Yeah, it’s still, I feel like,
a number one song to a lot of people. – It’s a great song,
so I’m not surprised. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Her hair reminds me
of a warm safe place ♪ ♪ Where as a child I’d hide ♪ – Oh, I know I know this song! – ♪ And pray for the thunder… ♪ – This is my kind of music. – Dude, I gotta to say
shout-out to Guitar Hero for teaching me
all these songs as a kid. – Okay, I know what it is. – ♪ Sweet child o’ mine ♪ – There we go. There we go.
That’s all I needed. – ♪ (vocalizing) ♪ ♪ Sweet child… ♪ – Oh, no! Crap, I’m gonna have to name
a random band again, aren’t I? – (FBE) Do you know this one? – I know– okay,
it’s “Sweet Child of Mine,” and is it by Aerosmith? – “Sweet Child of Mine.”
I want to say AC/DC. – “Sweet Child of Mine” by KISS. – “Sweet Child of Mine”
by Guns N’ Roses. – That’s “Sweet Child O’ Mine”
by Guns N’ Roses. – Yeah, it’s Guns N’ Roses,
“Sweet Child O’ Mine.” – (FBE) This is
“Sweet Child O’ Mine,” and it’s by Guns N’ Roses.
– Guns N’ Roses! Argh! I’m so ashamed
I didn’t know that. – Why did I confuse it?!
I had it! Axl Rose and all them boys. FU–!! ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Used to go to dinner
almost every night ♪ – I actually know some of these. Yay. – ♪ Dancing til I thought
I’d lose my breath ♪ – Never mind, I take it back. – I can picture the ’80s girls
in neon workout stuff doing pilates to this,
or Zumba or something. – ♪ Ain’t that a shame ♪ ♪ What have you done for me lately ♪ ♪ Ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah ♪ – I’m trying to figure out
whose voice this is. – I don’t think it sounds–
it’s new to me. – (FBE) Do you know this one?
– Is it called “Ooh Yeah”? I have no idea who this is, though. – I know I’ve never heard this song,
and I have no idea who the artist is. – The only name that comes to my mind
is Janet Jackson? I’ve never heard this song before. – I have no idea what it’s called,
but I think it’s by Janet Jackson. – (FBE) This is “What
Have You Done For Me Lately.” It’s by Janet Jackson.
– Oh, okay. I didn’t listen
to a lot of Janet Jackson, so that was totally lost on me. – She is the leading lady
of ’80s music. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ I can feel it coming
in the air tonight… ♪ – I feel like this song’s
still popular, too. – I’m just waiting for this drum solo. I just want it to just go
♪ Doo-doo doo-doo-doo ♪ – ♪ …for this moment
for all my life ♪ – Is it dumb if I say
that it sounds like Phil Collins, who wrote the Tarzan
soundtrack and stuff? – ♪ I can feel it coming… ♪
– This is bringing back– – ♪ …in the air tonight… ♪
– It’s just sweet memories. – ♪ Oh, Lord ♪ ♪ Oh, Lord ♪ – Oh, but I wanted the…
the thing, you know? Come on!
That’s the best part. – (FBE) Do you know this one?
– No, I don’t know. – It reminds me of Phil Collins,
but that’s because I’ve been listening
to a lot of Disney music. – “Calling in the Air” by Phil Collins? – Is it “In the Air Tonight”
by Phil Collins? Final answer. – “In the Air Tonight,” Phil Collins. I’m happy.
I got one! – (FBE) It’s called
“In the Air Tonight,” and it’s by Phil Collins.
– Is it really? – I got the Phil Collins part.
I recognized– I’m like, “Oh, it sounds like Tarzan.” – (FBE) Phil Collins is one
of only three recording artists, along with Paul McCartney
and Michael Jackson, to have sold over
100 million albums globally, both as part of a band and solo. – That’s so cool! I would never have thought
to put him in the same category as the other two. – That takes some talent,
some skill. That’s amazing. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ You come on with a “come on” ♪ ♪ You don’t fight fair ♪ ♪ But that’s okay, see if… ♪ – This is such a feel-good song. – ♪ Knock me down, it’s all in vain ♪ ♪ I’ll get right back up… ♪
– The song sounds familiar. – ♪ …on my feet again ♪ ♪ Hit with me your best shot ♪
– Yep, that’s why. Okay. – (singing along)
♪ Hit me with your best shot ♪ WHO SINGS IT?! [Bleep]! – ♪ With your best shot ♪ – Mmm, okay.
– ♪ Hit me with your best shot ♪ – This is like a girl anthem for me. – ♪ Fire Away ♪ – I feel like this had to have been
one of the most popular songs from the ’80s. – I don’t know many
women musicians from the ’80s and I feel bad. – (FBE) Do you know this one? – Uh, it’s “Hit Me
With Your Best Shot.” Artist… I don’t know. – It’s “Hit Me With Your Best Shot,”
but I don’t know the artist. – So that was
“Hit Me With Your Best Shot.” I do not know the artist. – “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”?
Is this Cyndi Lauper? – “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”
by Pat Benatar? – It’s “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”
by Pat Benatar. – (FBE) This is “Hit Me
With Your Best Shot,” and it’s by Pat Benatar.
– Pat Benatar. I never would have guessed that. – I don’t know if
younger kids would know it, but a lot of people my age,
my generation, still recognize that song. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ You just leave it all up to me ♪
– What the [bleep] is this? – ♪ …show you what it’s all about ♪

– I mean, yes, I know I’ve heard it, but I can’t– I really can’t
give you a solid guess on who it is. – I do not. – Is it Michael Jackson? – I don’t know the title of the song.
This is Prince. – (FBE) This is “Kiss” by Prince.
– A-ha! Prince is my weakness! I have such a gap in knowledge
when it comes to Prince. – (FBE) So Prince believed
that there are no accidents and if there are, it’s up to us
to look at them as something else. What do you think about that? – I think that’s a very
positive outlook on life. – I agree with that. People make mistakes, but that’s
how you grow as a person. – When I sit down and listen to these,
I realize, wow, the ’80s had some bangers. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – Thanks for watching “Do They Know It?”
