  • Hey, that's right!

  • It's this setup again.

  • If you're a real TwoSet fan,

  • you'll know what's about to go down.

  • It's...

  • Except it's not pop songs today.

  • Because we will be listening to...

  • TikTok songs.

  • So we dabbled a little bit with TikTok, so...

  • we might recognise some of these tunes.

  • But I think the challenge today

  • is to be able to not just recognise it,

  • but name the song name, and the title.

  • Dude, that's gonna be so impossible!

  • So are you ready?

  • I'm not ready at all.

  • Alright.

  • Something like that.

  • I don't even know the song name, but...

  • Do you know which meme it is?

  • Is it the flashy one?

  • What?

  • It's the one when they jump

  • and then freezes, like, highly saturated.

  • There's like texts.

  • Ah, never mind. Whatever.

  • Alright, next one.

  • Oh!

  • Dude, I have no chance.

  • What is it?

  • It's the one when they're like, going to an album cover.

  • By the time this video is out,

  • this is gonna be so irrelevant.

  • Yeah, all these memes are probably

  • gonna be gone by then.

  • Oh, I messed it!

  • Roxanne!

  • Yeah! Ay...!

  • Roxanne! ♪

  • Alright, we're done!

  • Na-na-na-na-na... ♪

  • I passed!

  • I passed.

  • Oh!

  • Oh...

  • *sings the melody*

  • ♪ I can't remember what it i-is

  • Oh my god. I'm getting old! ♪

  • - ♪ Na-na... ♪ - I'll give you a clue.

  • Ah...!

  • Oh, I actually thought you got injured.

  • No, that's the clue- Ha ha ha!

  • I'm giving you a hint, bro!

  • I don't know. When you slip on a piece of wood?

  • When you prick yourself?

  • Make his pockets hurt

  • Oh...!

  • We're not even guessing names now.

  • We're just guessing the meme.

  • I know.

  • ♪ I'm a savage (yeah) ♪

  • Classy, bougie, ratchet (yeah) c

  • Oh!

  • Oh.

  • Dude, TikTok's so weird,

  • I lose my perfect pitch when I listen to it.

  • I... I can't.

  • Even pop songs I can tell straight away.

  • But TikTok, I lose my perfect pitch!

  • I like TikTok, but I have to admit

  • it's pretty like...

  • It kills your brain cells.

  • It trains you to have low attention span,

  • and kinda just...

  • Yeah, you spend like an hour,

  • and you realise, be like...

  • - "I wasted one hour of my life..." - Yeah.

  • "looking at..."

  • Make his pockets hurt! ♪

  • - Okay, here we go. - Are you ready?

  • That's my best attempt at pitching the rap.

  • It's like, if Schoenberg was on TikTok.

  • I'll give you a hint.

  • Yeah, give me a hint.

  • But I will do it in Chinese.

  • Because I gotta do the rap,

  • - but I can't say the word. - Oh, okay, okay.

  • - I have no idea. - Dude, this should actually be a thing.

  • Do you know what it is though?

  • No, I don't know.

  • ♪ I'm a savage! ♪

  • Oh! I'm a savage!

  • Whatever the lyrics are.

  • "Classy, bougie, ratchet."

  • Do you know classy and ratchet

  • - are basically polar opposites? - It's opposites. Yeah!

  • Ratchet sounds horrible!

  • Like why would you want to be a ratchet?

  • Oh, and then they do it like this:

  • "What's happening? What's happening?"

  • "I'm a savage."

  • It's like, imagine going to a career counsel.

  • "So what can you do?"

  • I'm a savage!

  • Even pop music, at least they have... like a...

  • introduction, and then like a thematic material theme.

  • - And they come back- - Yeah.

  • I can't believe I'm praising pop music like this.

  • Alright, whatever.

  • I'm just not intelligent enough to compute this.

  • Sorry, guys.

  • - There's another one. - Too busy practicing.

  • Brett: Oh!

  • Uh...

  • We played it!

  • If you say so!

  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah! "Say So." - Oh my god.

  • Who's it by?

  • Satie?

  • It's by Doja Cat.

  • Oh, there you go.

  • This isn't even a meme.

  • It's just a girl being like...

  • "When he replies fast,"

  • "and treats you like a queen."

  • Oh my god!

  • Relatable!

  • Dude, my soul is dying.

  • Dude, I don't know!

  • The caption is "This hits different."

  • - In case that helps. - Bro, it's...

  • Yeah, that really hit me differently.

  • I still don't know.

  • First comment:

  • "Later that day he was drowning in ****."

  • That hits different.

  • I'll play it out for you. See if you can recognise it.

  • A lot of the songs they just slow it down,

  • - to pitch it down... on TikTok. - Oh...

  • We need to get one more right.

  • Alright, let's do it.

  • Oh, I just remembered one!

  • Dude.

  • Is that even a TikTok song?

  • Yeah.

  • It's way too long.

  • - It was on those epic cinematic TikTok ones. - Yeah, it sounds like an anime.

  • Yeah.

  • Is it by a Japanese composer?

  • Nah, it's-

  • The lyrics is the furthest thing from Japanese.

  • Oh! Is it like...

  • Country road... ♪

  • Take me home... ♪

  • To a place... ♪

  • ♪ I call home... ♪

  • Okay.

  • - Yeah. - I recognise but I don't know it.

  • Who wrote that?

  • It's by John Denver.
