and that’s how I learned about KC and the Sunshine Band. – I remember just
rollerskating laps to this song. And a disco ball would come out.

  2. So true at 6:00. Contemporary music is very much the same, you can't tell apart them, because they share the same two chords and the same two songwriters. 70's had such a range of genres and sounds.

  3. Y'all gotta do like 90's and 2000's one hit wonders and see if the teens or college kids know them.

  4. The Who – Who are you
    Boston – More than a feeling
    Kiss – Rock n Roll all night
    James Taylor – Fire and Rain
    Jim Croce – Car Wash blues
    B-52's – Rock Lobster
    The Clash – Clampdown
    Elvis Costello – Radio, Radio
    Rick Dees – Disco Duck
    Wings – Band on the run

  5. Would love to see a react video to Meat Loaf – the singer obviously
    He has had some great songs. First album was released in 71.

  6. Teens or College Kids react to popular singers singing covers and they have to guess the name of song and original artist and cover artist! 🙂 Example: Khalid singing Fast Car by Tracy Chapman

  7. Teens or college kids react to Southern rock! I’d love to see them react to Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers Band, ZZ Top, and .38 Special!

  8. Rock With You by Michael Jackson was more of a 80s hit song. It was number 1 in the first year of the 80s and was only on the charts in the 80s

  9. how about a react video over
    You Don't Own Me ~ Lesley Gore
    Nina Simone
    Ella Fitzgerald
    Etta James
    Nancy Sinatra
    A bit older on the timeline but still magical.

  10. Oh dayum, you pulled it out of the bag this time!! MJ, Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell… I can't even. I ❤️ 70's music!!

  11. I'm literally making IPod playlists based on the "Do they know it?" series. Keep it up! And I need to listen some Joni Mitchell to educate myself.

  12. Literally one of the most recognizable songs of all time is Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac. How do people not know that song or who it's by?

  13. Wow. I love Counting Crows – Big Yellow Taxi ft Vanessa Carlton. I had no idea they used a chorus from a 70's song.

  14. That was an easy one. The '70s had many, many different genres of music going on. From hard rock, soft rock, psychedelic rock, Motown, Indie, southern rock, pop rock, punk rock, glam rock and that dreaded episode in music, disco, Uggh!
