– This is very ’80s. – This makes me want to put on
a headband and leg warmers. ♪ (upbeat intro) ♪ – (FBE) We’re gonna test you
on some ’80s music today. – Ooh, I love ’80s music. – All right, let’s see
if I know the ’80s. I think I’m gonna do all right. – I listen to KOST 103.5 all the time,
and they always play ’80s, so I’m really comfortable
with this challenge. – I’d like to think that
I am fan of ’80s music, but I feel like
you’re just gonna throw every ’80s music
that I don’t know at me. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Ooh, are you ready girls? ♪ ♪ Ooh, are you ready now? ♪ – (singing along) ♪ Oh, yeah ♪ – ♪ Kickstart my heart ♪ – Okay, this sounds familiar, actually. – ♪ Ooh, yeah, baby ♪
– What is it? – It doesn’t sound familiar. – ♪ …yeah ♪ ♪ Kickstart my heart ♪ – Okay, my foot’s tapping. – ♪ …yeah ♪ ♪ Ready now ♪ – I feel like I know the artist,
like, who sings this. – I can imagine the music video. They’re dark clothes with long hair,
rocking on the guitar. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– No. – No. – I like it. I don’t know who it is, though. – That is “Kickstart My Heart”
by Mötley Crüe. – (FBE) This is “Kickstart My Heart”
by Mötley Crüe. – Mötley Crüe, okay, I’ve
definitely heard of Mötley Crüe. I don’t know if I’ve ever heard
of this song, though. – Oh, my god! Even little kids know Mötley Crüe.
How did I not get that?! – I liked that. It’s got the sound that
was popular in the ’80s, so you know that back in the day,
this was for sure a banger. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ With auburn hair and tawny eyes ♪ – ♪ (vocalizing beat) ♪ – ♪ The kind of eyes
that hypnotize me ♪ – This is very ’80s.
– ♪ …through ♪ – This makes me want to put on
a headband and leg warmers. – ♪ …through ♪ – (singing along) ♪ And I ran,
I ran so far away ♪ – ♪ I just ran, I ran all night… ♪ – I’m trying to think who sings this. – ♪ …day ♪ ♪ I couldn’t get away ♪ – This is gonna kill me
because I don’t know who who the artist is. – (FBE) Do you know it? – “Ran too Far Away,”
and I have no idea who it’s by. – It’s “I ran.” I don’t know the artist. – “I Ran” by… Flock of Seagulls. – (FBE) So this is “I Ran”
by A Flock of Seagulls. – A Flock of Seagulls?! The [bleep] animals are making music. – Imagine if you named your band
A Party of Buffalo. You know, that’s cool. – (FBE) So this song
is featured in Lala Land. Ryan Gosling’s character is performing
with an ’80s cover band, and this is the song
Emma Stone requests. – Oh, very cool. – Oh, is it? That’s why it’s familiar. – Did she say the artist’s name? She doesn’t say the artist’s name. See, if she said the artist’s name,
I possibly would have got it. (dryly) Thanks a lot, Emma Stone. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ And she’ll tease you ♪ ♪ She’ll unease you ♪ ♪ All the better just to please you ♪ – Yeah, this song sounds familiar. – ♪ ..and she knows
just what it takes to make… ♪ – I have no idea who this is. – ♪ She got Greta Garbo stand off… ♪
– Who is this? – ♪ She’s got Bette Davis eyes ♪ – I don’t know if
I’ve ever heard this before. – Wow, I’m off my game today. – (FBE) And do you know it?
– No. – No. – I have no idea what this is at all. – (FBE) So this is “Bette Davis Eyes”
by Kim Carnes. – Okay, I’ve never even heard of her. I’ve heard that song,
but I’ve never heard of her. – I’ve never heard of that name
or that song ever. – I didn’t like that. Her voice was very everywhere for me. I couldn’t handle just
the up and downness of it. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ ‘Cause every time
he pulls me near ♪ ♪ I just wanna cheer ♪ ♪ Let’s hear it for the boy ♪ – Oh, I know this one. – I’ve heard this, yes. – ♪ …a hand ♪ – This is funky.

– No. – No, I don’t know that one. – “Hear It For the Boy,”
but who are you by? – “Let’s Hear It For the Boy,”
but the artist? I am honestly drawing a blank. – (FBE) So this is
“Let’s Hear It For the Boy” by Deniece Williams.
– Deniece Williams? Okay. I am not sure if I’m familiar
with that name either. – These artists are so hard. I feel like I’ve never heard
of any of them. – I never would have gone
out of my way to listen to her,
but if it played on the radio, I would definitely just,
you know, keep it rolling. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Ah, can’t you
see me standin’ here ♪ ♪ I’ve got my back against
the record machine ♪ – Don’t know who this is at all. – ♪ I ain’t the worst that you’ve seen ♪ – (singing along) ♪ Ah,
can’t you see what I mean? ♪ ♪ (vocalizing guitar solo) ♪ – ♪ Ah, might as well jump ♪
– Oh, okay! I know this one. – ♪ Might as well jump ♪
– Oh, I know this song. – Okay, I know this song.
Who is it by, though? ♪ (upbeat synth pop) ♪ – ♪ Go ahead an’ jump ♪ – JUMP! I love the synth. – I’ve heard this beat before. I don’t ever think I’ve heard
the lyrics along with it. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– I’m at a loss. I don’t know. – I would say it’s called “Jump,”
but I don’t know who it’s by. – I want to say it’s “Jump,”
but I don’t know who the artist is. – “Jump” by Van Halen. – (FBE) So this is
“Jump” by Van Halen. – Oh, it’s Van Halen? Really? I really thought they made
music a lot heavier, like Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath. – I love that song.
That song gets me pumped. – The synthesizer in
the beginning is so catchy. ♪ (vocalizing melody) ♪ You know? That’s so, so good. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ But don’t let it be
a black and a white one ♪ ♪ ‘Cause they slam ya
down to the street top ♪ – Hey! – ♪ Black police showin’ out
for the white cop ♪ – (gasping) Oh, okay.
– ♪ Ice Cube will swarm ♪ Yes, I know this song. – ♪ …in a blue uniform ♪ – I can’t believe this was the ’80s. – This came out in the ’80s?
I thought this was ’90s. – ♪ …police are afraid of me ♪ ♪ A young [bleep] on a warpath ♪ ♪ And when I’m finished,
it’s gonna be a bloodbath ♪ – ♪ Of cops, dyin’ in LA ♪ ♪ Yo, Dre, I got somethin’ to say ♪
– (singing along) ♪ Somethin’ to say ♪ – ♪ [Bleep] the police ♪ ♪ [Bleep] [bleep] [bleep] ♪
– Wow. – ♪ [Bleep] the police ♪ – I mean, I’ve heard this was
a really controversial song back then. – (FBE) So do you know it?
– Is it “F the Police” by Ice Cube? – “[Bleep] the Police”
by Ice Cube and Eazy-E. – “[Bleep] the Police.”
Is that N.W.A.? – (FBE) So this is
“[Bleep] the Police” by N.W.A. – Okay, yeah, I’ve heard of that. I’ve heard this in a lot of vines,
the chorus of it. – I liked it.
I like it a lot. Like, that’s a classic
old-school rap song. – I love listening to early rap
