♪ Hold on to the feelin’ ♪ ♪ Streetlights… ♪ – ♪ …people ♪ ♪ (upbeat theme music) ♪ – (FBE) Today, we’re
going to be playing you some songs from the ’80s,
and we’ll see how well you know them. – Oh, okay. I am not very familiar
with the ’80s. – I have no concept
of if I know ’80s music or not. Did The Pussycat Dolls exist?
Are those ’80s? – When I think ’80s,
I think Michael Jackson Thriller. That’s about the extent
of my knowledge, so we’ll see how this goes. – Great, I’m going to fail again. I’ll know songs, but
I won’t know the name of it. Or I might know the name of it,
but I won’t know the artist’s name. – Oh, shoot, okay. I hope I know them. I know more older things,
like The Beatles and stuff that my parents
sort of had me grow up on. – Yes, oh my gosh.
Yes, I’m so excited. I honestly feel like
I belong in the ’80s. I used to wear suspenders
and leg warmers and, you know, windbreakers
and neon colors, so I’m excited. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Welcome to the jungle ♪ ♪ It gets worse here every day ♪
– Oh, okay. – I’ve heard this
in a game, I think. – ♪ If you got a hunger
for what you see… ♪ – Okay, yeah, I feel like
everyone knows this song. – ♪ You can have anything you want ♪ ♪ But you better
not take it from me ♪ – (singing along) ♪ In the jungle,
welcome to the jungle ♪ – (singing along) ♪ Shun
n-n-n-n-n-n knees, knees ♪ – I know this song. ♪ (electric guitar solo) ♪ – ♪ I’m gonna watch you bleed ♪ – It’s super rocky. I love it. I love this kind of style of rock because it just reminds me
of all the old classic rock songs with guitar riffs. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– No. – “Welcome to the Jungle,”
but I just don’t remember the band. – “Welcome to the Jungle”
by Black Sabbath? – “Welcome to the Jungle”
by Guns N’ Roses. – Guns N’ Roses,
“Welcome to the Jungle.” – “Welcome to the Jungle”
by Guns N’ Roses? – (FBE) This is
“Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns N’ Roses.
– Guns N’ Roses! Ugggh! – Yay, okay, I got one. – It’s such a good song.
I listen to this a lot. It just brings,
you know, good feels, good ol’ rock n’ roll,
gool ol’ ’80s. – (FBE) So “Welcome to the Jungle”
is about Los Angeles. The lyrics are about
the dark side of the city many people encounter when
they are on the pursuit of fame. – Really? I never knew that. – I never even looked into the song. I thought it was always just
“welcome to the jungle,” as like “welcome
to some craziness” but L.A. crazy, it makes sense. – That makes the song
a lot cooler to me. The craziness that
I think people encounter when they’re in L.A.,
trying to make it big and that’s such a cliche, but the song kind
of captures that chaos. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ You must try to ignore
that it means more than that ♪ – (singing along) ♪ Oh-oh-oh,
what’s love got to do ♪ ♪ Got to do with it ♪ – ♪ What’s love but… ♪ – (singing along)
♪ …a secondhand emotion ♪ – (singing along)
♪ What’s love got to do ♪ ♪ Got to do with it ♪ I love this movie. – ♪ Who needs a heart
when a heart can be broken ♪ – I love it. I think
it’s super groovy. It’s so soulful and it’s funky. This is the kind of music
I love listening to. – (FBE) So do you know it? – “What’s Love Got to Do With It.” Artist, have no idea. – “What’s Love Got to Do With It.” I can’t think of the artist. – “What’s Love Got to Do With It”
by Tina Turner. – “What’s Love Got to Do With It”
by Tina Turner. – I love this song! “What’s Love Got to Do With It”
by Tina Turner. My mom and my dad both love her. – (FBE) So this is
“What’s Love Got to Do With it” by Tina Turner.
– Oh, okay. I’ve heard of Tina Turner. – She’s one of those artists
that paved the way for a lot of female artists
that we have now, so kudos to her. – This song actually reminds
me of road trips I used to take when I was younger,
just because my mom would play it so much. It’s one of her favorite songs,
and so I grew up listening to it and it just brings
back good feelings. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Money’s the matter ♪ ♪ If you’re in it… ♪
– This is a tough one. – ♪ You ain’t gonna get too far ♪
– Okay. This song is in so many movies. – (singing along)
♪ Oh-oh, here she comes ♪ – ♪ Watch out, boy,
she’ll chew you up ♪ ♪ Oh-oh, here she comes ♪ ♪ She’s a maneater ♪ – This sounds familiar. – ♪ Oh-oh, here she comes ♪ ♪ Watch out, boy,
she’ll chew you up ♪ – I don’t know if I know it.
– ♪ …here she comes ♪ ♪ She’s a maneater ♪ – The song was A-1. Like, I can see myself jamming,
walking down the street. It’s a spring/summer vibe. Got some Ray-Bans on. – (FBE) So do you know it?
– No, I don’t think I know that one. – No, I don’t know this song. – I do not know the artist,
but song is “Maneater.” – It’s called “Maneater.”
I don’t know the artist. – “Maneater” by… this
is the part where it gets hard because they don’t say
the name of the artist in the song. – (FBE) So this is “Maneater”
by Hall and Oates. – By who?
– Hall and Oates. – Hall and Oates?
Sounds like cereal. – Hall and Oates? I don’t know what that is. I never even heard
of that name before. – I love Hall and Oates.
They make my dreams come true. I’m really sad I didn’t know
this was by them. It’s a very distinct sound
that kind of comes from the ’80s. I really like that.
I’m digging it. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ We are strong ♪
– Oh, my gosh, yes. – ♪ No one can tell us we’re wrong ♪ – Okay, I know this song. – ♪ Searching
our hearts for so long ♪ – Okay, this is another song
that’s in every single movie. – (singing along)
♪ Love is a battlefield ♪ – It’s so good. Again, this brings back memories. My mom also used to listen
to this song a lot. It has a special place in my heart. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– No, I don’t. – No clue. – No, I have no clue at all. – “Love is a Battlefield”? Either Cyndi Lauper or Madonna? – “Love is a Battlefield”?
Is it by Pat Benatar? – “Love is a Battlefield”
by Pat Benatar. – “Love is a Battlefield”
by Pat Benatar? – “Love is a Battlefield”
by Pat Benatar. – (FBE) This is
“Love is a Battlefield” by Pat Benatar.
– No way! – Yes, okay, finally!
I got one. I feel like I always guess
songs are Pat Benatar, and then it’s someone else. – It’s one of those songs
that pretty much everybody knows, so when it comes on,
it’s sort of uniting and everybody sings it,
and it’s sort of a power ballad. – (FBE) So this song
plays a big part in the movie 13 Going on 30. – Yes, I’ve definitely
seen that before. – (FBE) Jennifer Garner,
who plays an ’80s teen who magically becomes
an adult in the 2000’s sings it with some young girls
when they are talking about love. – Yes, I remember
that scene vividly. I remember I loved that
they used that song. – I’m really surprised
I didn’t recognize that, but I remember
that scene specifically. – Yes, I love that movie! They’re at the sleepover,
jumping on the bed. Yes, I love that movie. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ ♪ (folk rock) ♪ – ♪ When I’m out walking… ♪ – (singing along) ♪ I strut my stuff ♪ ♪ And I’m so strung out ♪ ♪ I’m high as a kite ♪ – ♪ …and I just might
stop to check you out ♪ ♪ Let me go on ♪ ♪ Like I blister in the sun ♪ – Oh, my gosh, yes. – I like this a lot. – ♪ Big hands,
I know you’re the one ♪ – That’s crazy! One of my friends did this
at open mic two weeks ago. This song is so dope. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– No. – No. – No. – I don’t know this one. – “Blister in the Sun,”
but I don’t know who it is. – It’s “Blister in the Sun,”
but I don’t know who the artist is. – “Blister in the Sun” by…
what is the name of the band? I’ve listened to that song
over 300 times and I’ve never thought
to check who sings it. – (FBE) So this is “Blister
in the Sun” by Violent Femmes. – Okay, I can’t say
I’ve ever heard of them. – What? See,
I don’t know who that is. – I knew it was Violent Femmes! I mean, I didn’t know it
was Violent Femmes, but NOW I know it’s Violent Femmes. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Me, you can go
toe-to-toe, no maybe ♪ ♪ I’m knocking [bleep]
out the box, daily ♪ ♪ Yo, weekly, monthly, and yearly ♪ – I know this song. – ♪ …mother[bleep] see clearly ♪ ♪ That I’m down

I’m comin’ straight outta Compton ♪ ♪ (Compton, Compton, Compton) ♪ – This song, I mean, I feel like
it’s a very legendary hip hop song. Nowadays, hip hop has
sort of an emphasis on the bass and a beat, whereas hip hop
back then in the ’80s was more like what
they’re speaking about. – (FBE) So do you know it? – Um, that’s “Straight
Outta Compton” by N.W.A. – “Straight Outta Compton” by N.W.A. – “Straight Outta Compton” by N.W.A. – “Straight Outta Compton,”
N.W.A., baby! – (FBE) So can you tell me
how you know this song? – From the movie,
Straight Outta Compton. – Any song that has
anything to do with California is played on our radio
at least once a day. – They were a really
progressive rap group at the time. They had Ice Cube, Dr. Dre. – N.W.A.’s the best group
of men to get together and rap about
some real shit. I love ’em. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Don’t stop believing ♪ – Oh, my heart! – (singing along)

♪ Don’t stop believing ♪ – Oh, this is so good. – ♪ Streetlight people ♪ – This is such a good song. (sighing) Oh, man. (laughing) There’s so many
memories with this one. – (FBE) Last song, do you know it? – “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey. – “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey. – “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey. – “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey. – That’s “Don’t
Stop Believing” by Journey. – “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey. This is the song that you
jam out in the car to in traffic. You know, it’s so good. – “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey. When it comes on the radio,
I have to blast it, scream at the top of my lungs, and sometimes
I even get really teary. I am getting emotional

  2. The first band was Guns n Roses and this was uploaded on mine and Slash's birthday. Why do I love this 😂😂

  3. "I love this style of rock because it reminds me of all the old classic rock songs"… you do realize this IS classic rock right?

  4. It's Halloween, 1985, somewhere in Southern California. A group of dazed and confused freaks and geeks find stranger things can happen while livin' fast times!

  5. Okay, "Don't Stop Believin'" always makes me emotional. But as a college student, I'd say how about Do College Kids Know Bar Hits and "Sweet Caroline" by Neil Diamond is a must on the list….

  6. Do College Kids Know 50s Music?
    Do College Kids Know 40s Music?
    Do College Kids Know Old Movies / Movie Music?
    Do College Kids Know Old Sitcoms?
