♪ We will, we will rock you ♪ – I like long walks on the beach,
sunshine, and ’70s music. ♪ (upbeat intro) ♪ – (FBE) Let’s get down and boogie
with some ’70s music. – Yay! I like this. – Radical, man.
Nope, that’s not ’70s. Is it ’70s? See, I don’t even know slang! – I was just browsing
the ’70s music channel the other day on iTunes and I’m still
probably not gonna retain any of that information. – Every time I come in,
I’m like, from the last one, I’ll be like, “I’m gonna
listen to a lot more ’70s music so I can know everything,”
and then I come in here and I’m like, yeah, I still haven’t
listened to any ’70s music. I pretty much listen
to the same four songs. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – (singing along) ♪ Roxanne ♪ Yes! I know this one. – (singing along) ♪ You don’t
have to put on the red light ♪ – ♪ Roxanne ♪
– Okay, I know this song. – My dad sings this
all over the house! – ♪ You don’t have
to put on the red light ♪ ♪ Roxanne ♪ ♪ Put on the red light ♪ – Okay, this is sounding
really familiar. – (singing along)
♪ Put on the red light ♪ Who are you?
Okay, come on, Tom. Think! – ♪ …red light ♪ ♪ Roxanne ♪ ♪ Put on the red light ♪ – I always wondered
what it would have been like to have someone write
a song about you like that. It’s crazy. – (FBE) Do you know it?

by The Police. – Oh, The Police were big! They’re British, right? – That was The Police?
That was Sting singing? – Oh, that hurts! My dad’s gonna be so pissed. Me and my dad would play
this game in the car. He would be like, oh, he’d play a song
and then I’d have to guess what it is and Sting
would come up so much. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ ♪ (trumpets blaring) ♪ – (singing along) ♪ This
will be an everlasting love ♪ – Oh! Eharmony commercials. – And then he comes out and says,
“You can find love on eharmony, too.” – ♪ …loved me ♪ ♪ (vocalizing) ♪ ♪ I’m so glad you found me in time ♪ – I like long walks on the beach,
sunshine, and ’70s music. – I’ve heard this song before, too. – This song just makes me
think of my mom doing the dishes while
I’m in the other room trying not to listen to her music. – (FBE) All right,
do you know this one? – It’s the eharmony commercial
by… I’m trying to think of the guy’s name.
I don’t know. It’s the old-looking dude.
He has white hair, always wears a suit. – “Everlasting Love.” I don’t know who sings it though. – This is “Everlasting Love”
by… give me a second. Why is that not coming to me?! – “This Will Be” and I’m
not sure who sings it. – (FBE) This is “This
Will Be (An Everlasting Love)” by Natalie Cole.
– It sounds really familiar. – I know I heard the song before,
just not frequently and the artist’s name
is unfamiliar to me. – She has a really pretty voice
and I’ve heard her sing before. – That’s a cute song. That’s a good dinner playlist song,

and they’re wonderful ♪ ♪ Oh, Bennie, she’s really keen ♪ ♪ She’s got… ♪ – (singing along)

on the ’70s playlist that I’ve been studying,
but I always forget to look at the actual details. – ♪ B-B-Benny and the Jets ♪ – Oh. Yeah, I’ve heard
this song before. – I didn’t know this
was made in the ’70s. – That’s possibly one
of my favorite sounds in all of music, just him going ♪ Benny ♪ – (FBE) Do you know this one?

and it’s by Elton John. – “Benny and the Jets” by Elton John. – (FBE) This is “Benny
and the Jets” by Elton John. – EVERY TIME! I’m starting to think
I don’t know who Elton John is. – I do love Elton John,

Is this Jackson 5? – I think the song title is “ABC,”

hit by The Jackson 5. It knocked The Beatles “Let It Be”
off the top of the Billboard Hot 100 in 1970.
– Good [bleep]. Let’s go, MJ! Staying the King of Pop! – Dang, you’re knocking
The Beatles off. That’s when you know
you’re gonna have a crazy career. – It’s a very different style than
what I associate Michael Jackson with. I think Michael Jackson,
I think “Thriller,” but also, obviously,
that’s a part of him and I feel like a lot of people forget
this is what he was doing before he was doing “Thriller.” ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ (thumping table to beat) – Every sports game ever. – ♪ Buddy, you’re a boy… ♪ – (singing along)

where he goes, “Sing it!” I like that part. – (FBE) Do you know this one? – I think it’s called
“We Will Rock You,” and I’m pretty sure it’s by Queen. – Queen, “We Will Rock You.” – This is “We Will Rock You” by Queen. – It amazes me when
people don’t know Queen or don’t like Queen,
and I’m just like, but it’s Queen! Even if you just like
“Bohemian Rhapsody,” it’s still Queen! – (FBE) Queen guitarist
Brian May wrote this and claimed the idea for the song came in a dream. He told Mojo Magazine in October 2008
that he wanted to create a song that the audience
could participate in. – Yeah, definitely. Everybody participates in this. If you don’t participate in this song,
then who are you? What are you? – That’s fair because
as soon as it started, that’s– you have to do that. You can’t just passively listen
to the song and be like, “Oh, yeah,
‘We Will Rock You.’ Hmm-hmm, yes, dinner party.” Like, you have to do the claps! ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – Thanks for watching “Do They Know It?”
