The Blues Brothers performing ‘Sweet Home Chicago’ in the 1980 film The Blues Brothers.
It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we’ve got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark out, and we’re wearing sunglasses. HIT IT!
The Blues Brothers is a classic movie, a slight misfire at the box office on the original release, but a film that gained a substantial cult following via cinema re-releases and especially home viewing. It’s a riotous mix of comedy, musical and serial car crash (literally) with a phenomenal number of legendary musical cameos: Ray Charles, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, and John Lee Hooker included.
Just freaking brilliant. Great clip from multi-talented performers!
