’80s songs for you today. We’re gonna see
how well you know them. – Oh my god.
I’m so excited. I love these.
These are my favorite. – I’m excited. I did a “Do They Know It?”
to the ’80s music once before, and I did really well. – I know the songs,
but I don’t know anything about the songs. – (wryly) I’m so great at recalling
musicians and naming songs. That’s totally my strong suit. – Not very good with songs.
Not very good with artists. But I do my best,
and I have fun here. That’s what we do. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ They can beg
and they can plead ♪ ♪ But they can’t see the light ♪
– – ♪ (humming beat) ♪ – ♪ That’s right ♪ – This sounds so familiar. – ♪ …cold hard cash
is always Mister Right ♪ – That’s true. – ♪ ‘Cause we are living… ♪ – (singing along)
♪ …in a material world ♪ – (singing along)
♪ And I am a material girl ♪ – Oh, I love this song! Yes. – (singing along)
♪ …material world ♪ – ♪ And I am a material girl ♪ – Oh! That is such a bop. – (FBE) So do you know this one? – Uh, “Material Girl” by… – “Material Girl.”
Um, artist, I have no idea. – Hmmm, “Material Girl,” Madonna. – “Material Girl” by Madonna? – “Material Girl” by Madonna. – It’s “Material Girl,”
and it’s Madonna. – “Material Girl” by Madonna. – (FBE) This is
“Material Girl” by Madonna. – [Bleep]. I know Madonna. – I love her so much.
She’s an icon in ’80s music. – I think that song’s just– hearing it, it just
sounds like a party. – (FBE) In this music video,
Madonna is dressed like Marilyn Monroe in the number “Diamonds
Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” She actually met
her future husband, Sean Penn, on the set of this music video shoot.
– Oh, that’s nice. She met her material boy. – I knew that but I didn’t know
how they met, so that’s cool. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ All I know is that to me ♪ ♪ You look like you’re lots of fun ♪ – Oh, this song sounds familiar, too. – (singing along)

the original version of that song. – (FBE) Do you know this one?
– I’ve heard it, but I don’t think I know the title. – “Right ‘Round.”
“Baby You Spin Me.” Maybe one of those? – “You Spin Me Round.”
I don’t know the artist. – (FBE) This is “You Spin Me Round.”
It’s by Dead or Alive. – “Dead or Alive.” I don’t think I’ve ever heard of them. – I have not heard of that,
but I feel like I need to look them up because that was fun. – (FBE) This song was sampled by
rapper Flo Rida and Kesha on their 2009 number one
single, “Right Round.” – Which is a bop. And I feel like that song
even made this song more popular. – That’s why I’m really confused. The sounds in that original song
are just very different from the version that
I’ve been hearing on the radio. – Oh, wow. That’s a 10 year old song. I’m feeling old. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Standin’ on your mama’s porch ♪ ♪ You told me… ♪ – The voice definitely
sounds familiar. – I know I’ve heard it before. – ♪ Oh, and when you held my hand ♪

My dad’s gonna get mad if I get this wrong.
Who is it? – ♪ …or never ♪ ♪ Back in the… ♪ – (singing along) ♪ …summer of ’69 ♪ Aah, I love that song! – (FBE) Do you know this song? – Little bits of it sound familiar,
but I don’t think I’ve ever heard this before. – “Summer of ’69,”
but I just can’t think of the artist. – “Summer of ’69.”
Is it The Boss? Is it Bruce Springsteen? – I think the title
of the song is “Summer of ’69.” Is it Bruce Springsteen? – “Summer of ’69” by Bryan Adams? – (FBE) This is
called “Summer of ’69.” It’s by Bryan Adams.
– I have no idea who that is, nor have I ever
heard that song before. – A-HA! I know a name!
I know a name! – I don’t know that I’ve
heard any of his other songs, but that song’s pretty good. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ It’s not the things you do
that tease and hurt me bad ♪ – I’m picturing coconut shells. – (singing along)
♪ But it’s the way you do… ♪ This is from the Lizzie McGuire movie! – Oh, this song makes me so happy. – ♪ …who gives up just like that ♪ – This song is so familiar! – (singing along) ♪ The tide is high
but I’m holding on ♪ – ♪ I’m gonna be your number one ♪
– (lip syncing) – I feel like I haven’t heard this
since I was really little. – (singing along) ♪ …number one ♪ Aah, who are you?
Who are you? – (FBE) Do you know this song?
– (laughing) Nope! – I don’t know it. – I know I’ve heard it, but i just can’t think
of the title or the artist. – “The Tide is High.”
I don’t know the artist. – “The Tide is High” by Blondie. – (FBE) This is
“The Tide is High” by Blondie. – “Blondie,” okay. I’ve heard of Blondie. – That’s one of those songs
that gets stuck in your head and you’re just gonna be
singing and swaying the whole day. – It just makes me
want to cruise down the PCH along Malibu with
my non-existent convertible with the top down. – (FBE) This was actually
Blondie’s cover of the original song, recorded by the Jamaican group
The Paragons in 1966. The song gained attention
when Blondie’s version became a U.S. and U.K. number one hit.
– That’s interesting. Yeah, I kind of got the reggae
kind of vibe from it. – I like when artists do
their own version of a song and then that just brings
more recognition to the original version of the song
because they’re still two completely separate
different productions, but they’re both awesome. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Hello… ♪
– Oh, yes! ♪ Is it me you’re looking for? ♪ – Alex sings this all the time. – ♪ …in your eyes ♪ ♪ I can see it in your smile ♪ – (feigned sobbing) – ♪ You’re all I’ve ever wanted ♪

how to play the piano, so I could just sit down
dramatically and be like… – ♪ And I want to tell you so much ♪ – (singing along) ♪ I love you ♪ – I like it. It’s very slow and kind of romantic. – (FBE) Do you know it?
– No. (laughing) – I could not tell you. – It’s Lionel Richie.
I know that. “Is It Me”? – “Hello” by Lionel Richie. – “Hello” by Lionel Richie. – “Hello” by Lionel Richie? – (FBE) This is “Hello”
by Lionel Richie. – Oh, [bleep]! I like it a lot,
and I like Lionel Richie, too. I guess I don’t like him
as much as I thought I liked him. – My mom used to play this
all the time on car road trips, so I would hear it
over and over again. – I remember hearing this
when I was 10, you know, and just wanting to cry
and I didn’t have anything to cry about.
I didn’t have a broken heart. I was 10. But it’s a good cry,

I don’t know who sings it. But it was in the Ghostbuster’s movie! – (FBE) This is “Ghostbusters,”

  2. You've never heard summer of '69" before? You never heard Mr. Roboto before either? The pink haired girl lives under a rock.

  3. Ahh…these songs bring me back to my childhood! I knew all of them of course! I had a appreciation for 50s-70s music as well. Why do a lot kids these days not know more outside of modern music?

  4. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again Tom and Eric are 2 of the best guys on react ugh love them! 💜💜👏🏻

  5. Alright just waiting for more Rock and Expose/DuranDuran/HallnOates/Shannon/Pebbles/KeithSweat/NewEdition/Whitney Houston etc unless I forgot what episodes they were in

  6. Brandon looks and talks like the counselor in south park. "we like to have fun here, here take my headshot"

  7. Idea for the next React Video.. Have people react to the DeadPool 2 song by Celine Dion, Ashes.. the music video is hilarious!!

  8. Brianna: I’m so great at remembering 80s artist and songs.
    Brianna a few minutes later: This was an 80s song?

  9. Love Eric and tom and how unapologetically themselves they are. Love watching them dance and sing. Their videos always make me smile

  10. Favourite episode so far, those hits are just too good. Still waiting for Disco 2000 and Wonderwall, even though they're from the 90s

  11. they look so grown up :'), Jesús in 5 years what it's going to be? kids turn to teens, teens into college, college into adults and me going to elders D:

  12. If you're gonna do another styx song than try come sail away, renegade, lady, or too much time on my hands
