– ♪ Come on, shake your body… ♪
– (squealing) Yes! – (singing along) ♪ Ooh,
heaven is a place on earth ♪ – That’s such a common ’80s song. It could be played anywhere. ♪ (upbeat theme music) ♪ – (FBE) Are you ready
to get down to some ’80s music today? – Heck yeah, I am. Oh, nice. – (FBE) Because we’re gonna see
how well you know some of these ’80s songs.
– Cool. Probably not gonna be successful. – I hope I do well. (laughing) I think I’m gonna do okay. – I like coming here and sitting down
and listening to ’80s music because I always get introduced
to some new stuff. – I grew up around
a lot of ’80s music. My parents played a lot. I just didn’t know
the artist or the name. – Hell yes! Is it ’80s pop or rock? If it’s rock, I will get
every single one of them. If it’s not rock, it’s up in the air. – I think I’m gonna do good. I always set the bar high for myself. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ I ain’t got many friends
left to talk to ♪ ♪ No one’s around
when I’m in trouble ♪ – This sounds super familiar. – Oh, my dad’s gonna
be so disappointed in me. – This is a really fun song. – ♪ …keep it undercover ♪ – (singing along) ♪ I just
wanna use your love tonight ♪ – ♪ Whoa ♪ – (singing along) ♪ I don’t
wanna lose your love tonight ♪ – Yeah, I’ve heard this song
in movies and stuff like that. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– I don’t know this song. – I don’t remember
the title or artist. Oh my god, my parents
are gonna kill me. – It’s totally a jam,
but I have no idea what the heck it is or who it’s by. – “Lose Your Love,” Rush? – “I Don’t Wanna Lose
Your Love” by Mötley Crüe? – “Lose Your Love” by…
it sounds like Sting’s voice, but not with The Police
backing the music. – (FBE) This is called “Your Love”
by The Outfield. – By The Outfield. “Your Love” by The Outfield. I’ve never heard of that band. – Yeah, I’ve never heard
of The Outfield. – My dad is always
playing this stuff, too, so I’ll hear it blasting in the kitchen
for eight days in a row, and you’ll know the words,
but I’ve never bothered to be like, “Oh, who sings that?” ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Late at night, I toss and I turn ♪
– This is– yes. – Yeah, this is familiar. (singing along) ♪ I need a hero ♪ Hell yeah! – ♪ I’m holding out for a hero
’til the end of the night ♪ – (singing along)
♪ He’s gotta be strong ♪ ♪ And he’s gotta be fast ♪ ♪ And he’s gotta
be fresh from the fight ♪ – What movie is this from?
– ♪ I need a hero ♪ ♪ I’m holding out for a hero
’til the morning light ♪ – This is one of my mom’s
favorite songs ever. – ♪ He’s gotta be sure ♪ ♪ And it’s gotta be soon ♪ ♪ And he’s gotta be larger than life ♪
– I know this song. – ♪ Larger than life ♪ – This just makes you feel pumped up. I feel like this
is what I’d work out to. – (FBE) Do you know this one?
– (laughing) I don’t know. – “I Need a Hero.” No clue on the name. – “Hero” by Tina Turner? – “I Need a Hero” by Madonna? – “Holding Out For…”–
something with “Hero.” I want to say Cyndi Lauper,
but I feel like that’s incorrect. – (FBE) This is
“Holding Out For a Hero” by Bonnie Tyler.
– Is it really? It doesn’t sound like her. – My mom is gonna kill me! Oh my god. – Don’t get upset. The reason I know this song
is because of Shrek 2. – (FBE) This song
was originally written and released for the soundtrack
of Footloose in 1984. It can also be heard
as a cover song in Shrek 2. – I’m more disappointed
that I didn’t know that than that I didn’t know the artist. – That’s probably
where I know it from, to be honest. – Yep! (laughing) I think he’s riding Donkey
when he’s a horse, and then the giant gingerbread man
falls into the moat. Oh, that scene broke my heart. Oh man, see, the ’80s had
some good shit. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ There’s something sweet
that you can’t buy with money ♪ ♪ Lick it up (woo!) ♪ ♪ Lick it up ♪ – These voices sound familiar. – ♪ …so believe me, honey ♪ ♪ It ain’t a crime
to be good to yourself ♪ ♪ Lick it up ♪
– I know the song. – ♪ Lick it up ♪ – I don’t think I’ve
ever heard of this one. – ♪ Oh, it’s only right now ♪ ♪ Lick it up, lick it up ♪ – I like this one. – ♪ Ooh yeah ♪ – I can imagine driving
in an open top car and hair blowing in the wind
and listening to this, jamming with your friends. – (FBE) Do you know it? – I don’t think I’ve
ever heard that song. – I have no idea. – I don’t know this song. I don’t think I’ve
ever heard this song. I don’t know– the only band that
comes to mind is Foreigner. – They sound kinda like KISS. I don’t ever remember hearing this. I’m gonna guess it’s KISS, though. – (FBE) This is “Lick It Up” by KISS. – Okay, I know KISS. I don’t think I’ve ever heard
this song, though. – My KISS knowledge is not extensive. I don’t think this
is one of the few songs that I know. – KISS is [bleep] awesome. I can’t remember a lot
of their song names, but they’re sick. – (FBE) Here are two photos of KISS, with and without
their signature makeup. In 1983 with the release
of “Lick It Up,” KISS did their first music video
without makeup to prove that they could cut it
on music alone. – I mean, they look
like rock stars both ways. – They belong this way. This is what KISS is. – That’s so cool. I feel like I’ve only seen them
with their makeup on. – That’s kinda cool because, I mean,
when you think of KISS, you think of these guys right here
with all their makeup and stuff like that. – Gimmicks are one thing,
but music is what you’re really going for,
so that’s what you want to have most important– when I think of KISS,
I think of the face makeup and all wacky stuff. They would want me to be like,
“Yeah, I love their music.” ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ When you walk into the room ♪ ♪ You pull me close
and we start to move ♪ ♪ And we’re spinning
with the stars above ♪ ♪ And you lift me up… ♪
– Wait, this sounds familiar. – ♪ Ooh baby, do you
know what that’s worth? ♪ – (singing along) ♪ Ooh,
heaven is a place on earth ♪ – ♪ They say in heaven
love comes first ♪ ♪ We’ll make heaven a place on earth ♪ – (frustrated growl) That song’s been in the soundtrack
of everything, but who sings it? – (FBE) Do you know this one?
– No. – I don’t know who it is,
but I like it. – Yeah, I’ve heard that for sure. I don’t know who that is. – “Heaven” is the song title. Was that Blondie? – “Heaven Is a Place
on Earth,” Madonna? – “Heaven Is a Place
on Earth” by Blondie. – “Heaven Is a Place on Earth” by–
I want to say Cyndi Lauper again. Not every female
in the ’80s is Cyndi Lauper! – (FBE) This is called
“Heaven Is a Place on Earth.” It’s by Belinda Carlisle. She was originally
the lead singer of The Go-Go’s. – Okay, nice, nice.
I’ve heard of The Go-Go’s. – I don’t know.
I’ve never heard of her. – That’s such a common ’80s song.
It could be played anywhere. I still hear that on the radio today. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ I seen a lotta people
lookin’ for a moonbeam ♪ ♪ (electric guitar solo) ♪ – (giggling)
– ♪ Yeah, ya spent a lot ♪ ♪ Ya got lost in the jet-stream ♪ – Oh, what’s the song title! (gasping) – ♪ But ev’rybody wants some ♪
– Oh, got it. Got it. – ♪ I want some too ♪
– I like it. – I’ve never heard this. – Oh god, it’s
so much harder to cheat when I can’t understand
what they’re saying. – What was that? It seemed like all the instruments
were playing a different song than the singer was singing. – (FBE) So do you know this one? – No, I’ve never
heard that one before. – Not at all. I don’t even know who the artist–
I’ve actually never even heard the tune before. – Is it called “Everybody Wants Some”? – “Everybody Wants Some”
by Van Halen. – “Everybody Wants Some”
by Van Halen. Yes. – (FBE) This is
“Everybody Wants Some”– – Uh-huh.
– (FBE) And it’s by Van Halen. – Oh! Yeah, I’ve never
really listened to Van Halen. – That was Van Halen. Not gonna lie, don’t know
a lot about Van Halen either. – Wow, rock sounded
so different back in the ’80s. I would’ve liked
to go to that show. (laughing) It sounded so fun. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Come on, shake your body… ♪

be Shakira for a day. – ♪ Don’t you fight
it till you’ve tried it ♪ ♪ Do that conga ♪ ♪ Come on, shake your body, baby ♪ ♪ Do that conga ♪ ♪ I know you can’t control
yourself any longer ♪ – ♪ (vocalizing) ♪ – ♪ Don’t you fight
it till you’ve tried it ♪ ♪ Do the conga beat ♪ ♪ (dance-pop) ♪ – It’s super fun. This is the ultimate beach party. You can just imagine
everyone dancing around in hula skirts and doing a bunch
of crazy dance moves. – (FBE) Do you know it?

and Miami Sound Machine. – See, I’ve heard of Gloria Estefan. And I’ve heard this song before. I just didn’t know who it was. – That song is classic. I’ve heard it all the time. I totally thought that song
came out of the ’90s, though. – I love it and it
has that kind of beat that just makes you want to salsa. It makes you want to dance. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ She’s saying: “That’s okay.” ♪ ♪ “Hey baby, do what you please.” ♪ ♪ “I have the stuff that you want.” ♪ ♪ “I am the thing that you need.” ♪ – Okay. – ♪ …deep in the eyes ♪ ♪ She’s touching me so to start ♪ – Oh, I’m feeling nostalgic. Oh. – (singing along) ♪ …Diana ♪ (imitating Jackson) – It’s Michael Jackson.
– ♪ …Diana ♪ – (singing along) ♪ Oh ♪ Yeah, this is my boy Michael. – ♪ …no ♪ ♪ Dirty Diana, let me be! ♪ – Awesome. Oh, the voice, it makes me happy. – (FBE) So do you know this one? – Okay, that for sure
was Michael Jackson. – Michael Jackson. I don’t know what the title is. – I can’t say I’ve heard
that Michael Jackson song before. – “Dirty Diana,” Michael Jackson? – “Dirty Diana” by Michael Jackson. – That was “Dirty Diana”
by Michael Jackson. – (FBE) This is “Dirty Diana”
by Michael Jackson. – Yeah. Michael Jackson has
a very specific way of singing. – I’ve listened to every single
one of his albums, like, 8 billion times. – (FBE) In 1984, Michael Jackson
won eight Grammys, the highest amount ever won
by one person in a single year. – Yeah, he’s the man.
That’s amazing. – That just shows
how good he really was. – Eight [bleep] Grammys. That guy– musical genius, he is. – When he died, he died
being the King of Pop for a reason, because he
was so good at what he did. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – Thanks for watching us
