- ♪ If I... ♪ - This is so good.

Oh my gosh!

- ♪ You can't tell nobody ♪ - (mouthing lyrics)

- ♪ I'm talkin' 'bout nobody

♪ (upbeat intro) ♪

- (FBE) You ready to head back to the '90s for some music?

- Yes, of course.

- I am.

(laughing) I'm ready.

- I've done a few of these, and I really like '90s music.

- '90s music is really cool, just because of the fact

that it's so diverse.

There's no normal music.

It just kind of seems like-- I mean, I wasn't alive then,

but from what I can hear and the music tastes back then,

it seems like everybody was just going

for their own thing.

- I always listen to RnB '90s music,

and I just did a 2000s episode, so, yeah, we'll see how I do.

♪ (quirky interlude) ♪

- ♪ Well, okay, I made this up

I promised you... ♪

- Is this country? - ♪ ...I'd never give up

- I'm not sure.

- ♪ If it makes you happy ♪ - Oh, yeah.

There's the chorus.

- ♪ It can't be that bad ♪ - Nope.

- There was so much more emotion in songs,

it feels like, back then.

- (singing along) ♪ ...happy


- ♪ Then why the hell are you so sad

- Oh my god!

Oh my god!

I just had the biggest sense of nostalgia ever.

I remember singing this song out loud all the time.

- (FBE) All right, do you know that one?

- No, I don't.

I've never heard that song in my whole life.

- I've never heard this song before.

- Yeah, I know the song.

I don't know who it's by.

- (FBE) So this one's called "If It Makes You Happy,"

and it's by Sheryl Crow. - Never heard of her.

- Sheryl Crow?

I don't think I've ever listened to Sheryl Crow.

- (FBE) This song's inspiration was actually around the pressure

to follow up after the massive success of her first album.

- That makes sense.

It's like how are you gonna outdo yourself?

- It really sucks.

Obviously, I feel like if you put yourself in their shoes,

having to follow up on that.

- It's a lot of pressure.

If I was the artist, I would be like, "Oh gosh.

I don't even know if I want to release a second album."

♪ (quirky interlude) ♪

- ♪ 'Cause sooner or later, it's over

- This is such a good song.

- ♪ I just don't want to miss you tonight

- Oh! Oh!

- ♪ And I don't want the world to see me

- Damn, this is like if I'm shopping at Old Navy.

- ♪ ...understand

When everything's made to be broken

- Okay. Yeah.

- ♪ I just want you to know... ♪ - I hear this song all the time.

- ♪ ...who I am ♪ - This is so good.

Thank you so much for playing that.

- Everyone's gonna be like, "Oh my god.

I can't believe she doesn't know this song."

Because it's a classic.

- (FBE) Do you know this one? - I do not.

- It's the Goo Goo Dolls, but the song is--

I always mess up with the title of the song!

- "Iris" by the Goo Goo Dolls?

- (FBE) This is called "Iris," and it's by the Goo Goo Dolls.

- "Iris," yes. I love this song.

- It's so weird how I know that song, but I don't.

- Actually, my mom used to listen to them a lot,

so I should... yep, yep, yep.

♪ (quirky interlude) ♪

- ♪ So I cry... ♪ - Oh!

- ♪ ...I pray, and I beg

Love me, love me

Say that you love me

- (singing along) ♪ Fool me, fool me

- ♪ Go on and fool me

Love me, love me

Pretend that you love me ♪ - I love this song.

- ♪ Leave me... ♪ - Oh my gosh.

I can picture the music video.

- I've heard this one, too, but the only reason

I know it is because of Justin Beiber's song.

- It's so poppy.

It sounds like something you would walk into the hair salon.

- ♪ me ♪ - (sighing)

You're confusing me today.

- (FBE) Do you know this one? - I do not.

- "Love Me."

I want to say it's by Aqua probably.

- It's "Lovefool."

I want to say it's Cindy something, but that's just not right.

- (FBE) This one's called "Lovefool," and it's by The Cardigans.

- "Cardigans," as in the sweater?

- I really like that name. That's a good one.

The Cardigans?

- I like it.

I could actually see myself dancing to that.

- The Ca-- oh my god!

I played this song in a show, and I couldn't remember The Cardigans.

♪ (quirky interlude) ♪

- ♪ I've been holdin' back... ♪ - Oh, we finally got Aaliyah on here!

- ♪ I've been holdin' back this secret from you

I probably shouldn't tell it, but

If I... ♪ - This is so good.

Oh my gosh.

- ♪ You can't tell nobody ♪ - (mouthing lyrics)

- ♪ I'm talkin' 'bout nobody

- She's got a baby crying in the back.

- ♪ Boy, I gotta watch my back ♪ - Hmmm.

- ♪ 'Cause I'm not just anybody

- It's probably not Destiny's Child, but I feel like it's Destiny's Child.

I don't know.

- It sounds really, really good, but I don't think

I've ever heard this song before.

- (singing along) ♪ Say yes or say no

♪ 'Cause I really need somebody

Tell me are you that somebody

Oh, I love her.

RIP to baby girl. I miss her.

- (FBE) And do you know it? - Nope.

- No.

- Mm-mm.

- Is it "Somebody" by Aaliyah?

- Yes, "Somebody" by Aaliyah.

Oh my god, I love her.

- (FBE) This one is called "Are You That Somebody,"

and it's by Aaliyah. - Oh!

Oh, yes, Aaliyah.

- Oh, is it not a band?

This whole time, I was like, "Oh, yeah, this is

definitely a '90s girl band."

- Rest in peace.

I know she made the song "Rock the Boat,"

and that song is legendary.

- (FBE) According to Adam Levine, listening to this song

persuaded him to pursue a more soulful sound in his music.

You can hear Aaliyah's influence on the early Maroon 5 track

"Not Coming Home." - Yeah, you can, actually.

I didn't know it was because of Aaliyah.

Wow. Aaliyah has such an influence on people

and I love it.

- It's cool that even though it's not the same genre

as Aaliyah or something, they're still being influenced by it.

I like when artists do that. It's like a homage to them.

♪ (quirky interlude) ♪

- ♪ Closing time

You don't have to go home but you can't stay here

- It's a good song.

- ♪ I know who I want to take me home

- I like this.

- I've heard this before.

I don't know who it is, though.

- ♪ ...I want to take me home

I know who I want to take me home ♪ - (mouthing lyrics)

- ♪ Take me home

- That's sad, man.

I feel bad.

- (FBE) Do you know it? - No.

- I think it's called "Take Me Home."

Probably wrong though.

- This is "Closing Time" by Semisonic.

- "Closing Time" by Semisonic?

- (FBE) This one's called "Closing Time."

- Awesome, cool.

- (FBE) And it's by Semisonic. - Okay, don't know who that is.

- Even though I don't know it, I like it.

I'll probably listen to it.

- I've heard this song a lot, especially when I was playing

in bands or whenever I was at venues, they'd always play that song

in the background before or after shows.

- ♪ I've got a head full of drought... ♪

- It's not happening. (laughing)

- ♪ So far off losing... ♪

- It's something I would listen to now.

- I have nothing on this.

- I feel so uncultured.

I don't know any of these songs.

- ♪ this space ♪ - Who is it?

- ♪ I'm open to falling from grace

- Wow, that was poetic.

I like that song.

- (FBE) Do you know it? - Nope!

- I do not.

- I don't even have a guess.

- (FBE) So this one's called "6 Underground,"

and it's by Sneaker Pimps. - "Sneaker Pimps"?

I have no clue!

- (laughing)

Oh! These artist names.

- Out of all of them so far, this one's definitely my favorite.

It has that very different sound and I really like that

when I'm listening to music, to find something

that's different than what everyone else is doing.

This one had a very different vibe to it.

Oh my god! - ♪ I'd still miss you, baby

- This is a boy band, yes? - ♪ And I don't want to miss a thing

- I love that song.

- (FBE) Do you know this one? - No.

- I was thinking Elton John, but it's not Elton John.

He has a different voice.

- I think it's "Don't Want to Miss a Thing,"

but I don't know the artist.

- That is "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" by Aerosmith.

- (FBE) This is "Don't Want to Miss a Thing,"

and it's by Aerosmith. - Never heard of them.

I'm kidding.

Of course, I've heard of Aerosmith.

- It does not sound like Aerosmith.

That makes a lot more sense now.

I hear the raspy thing in his voice.

- No freaking way!

Why am I so used to their older songs,

where it's just hit you, punch you in the face?

- And it was nice because I've never heard them before,

so it's like a fresh new sound that I got to hear.

It sucks that I didn't know them, but I'm sure I'll Google them

when I get home and listen to a few of them again.
