– This is the hardest thing
I’ve ever had to do in my entire life.
– This is not fair! – Oh, that brings back
so many memories. ♪ (industrial intro) ♪ – (FBE) So today, you’re doing
a Try Not to Sing Challenge. – Yes! Those are my favorite.
I always lose. – I was actually talking
to someone today. I was like, “I really wanna do
a Try Not to Sing Challenge.” My dreams come true, guys. – (FBE) This time,
there’s a twist. – Okay. I’m listening. – (FBE) As we just entered 2018,
we thought we’d take a look at some of the songs
that might be nostalgic for you. – (gasps) Oh gosh.
– So either from 2008… Yeah, it’s a decade old, huh? – (FBE) All these songs
are celebrating their 10-year anniversary this year, since they were all
released in 2008. – Ah, man. I’m gonna
start coming up with lyrics that I haven’t sung in years.
– My elementary school years. I feel like I was probably
just listening to whatever my parents
were listening to. – Oh my gosh.
This is gonna be my childhood album. – (FBE) So as always,
there’s no singing or dancing or moving to the beat,
no lip syncing, and the goal is not to sing.
– I’m stressed. – (FBE) If you do sing,
you’re not gonna be X’d out. You’re always brought back
for the next song. – I can come back? Okay.
[Bleep] it. I’m taking a few Ls.
Let’s do it. – My god! I’m so excited.
Let’s go! – ♪ This was never the way… ♪
– Oh, [bleep]. – Ahh. This is 10 years old? – Oh my god. I was
just listening to this in the car. – Okay, see I can win this,
’cause I’m not a big fan of Katy Perry. – I don’t care about it enough
to sing along to it. – I know when I was little,
you felt so bad singing this song. (chuckles) I don’t know why. – ♪ I kissed a girl
and I liked it ♪ – This is already
the hardest thing. – I’m trying not to tap my feet.

♪ It’s a love story ♪ ♪ Baby, just say yes ♪
– I’m confident in my ability
to win this challenge. (laughs) – I’ve never been
a huge fan of country music, so I didn’t really
hook onto Taylor Swift. – It was definitely easier
to not sing along to it, but I wanted to be tapping
or doing something to dance. – These songs are songs
that were good in 2008 and are still good today. These songs just have
a special place in my heart. – Oh! The [bleep]. – ♪ Like a lollipop ♪
This was my ringtone. – ♪ Like a lollipop ♪

Lil’ Wayne? – Ohh. I don’t even care.

the Hummer limos? Is that still a thing? – (chuckles) I cannot sing,

(laughs) How do you not sing to that? – Oh, that was tough.
That song’s so good. – It almost got me
at “Take me away,” and I was like,
“I know that part!” And I was like, “Wait!
I’m not supposed to sing.” – I haven’t heard
that one for ages. That’s why I had
to dance to it a little bit. – That chorus just soars,
and it’s like, “Oh, I need to sing along
with that right now.” But I managed.

Out of all the ones that you’ve shown me,
that’s the most 2008-looking one. – It got me, dude.
That’s such a good song. – That was pretty easy,
’cause I didn’t know– I’ve never heard the rest
of the song other than “Shake it.” – It’s literally saying “Shake it,”

This is a literal bop. – This was obviously
a song you played at the middle school dances.

I watch the Try Not to Sings and [bleep] like that,
and I’m like, “Damn, this is easy!” I’m sitting here,
and I’m like, “Oh, [bleep]. This is so hard.”
– 10 years from now, if I have a few kids
and stuff, they’ll randomly dust off
an old iPod, play Cardi Bi, you know,
that song will come on, and I’ll hear it,
and a single teardrop will fall, and he’s gonna be like,
“What the [bleep]? This is what Dad listened to?” I’m gonna be like,
“You don’t understand, man. The Migos were the [bleep], bro.” – Thanks for watching
