The Blues Brothers* – Everybody Needs Somebody To Love | (GPF)

I was reminded of The Blues Brothers recently and what an utterly classic movie it is. John Belushi and Dan Akroyd are so talented, and they managed to assemble a pretty starry array of soul greats to make cameo appearances.

While there are lots of strong musical performances (James Brown as a maniacal preacher is another particular highlight) and despite the fact that it isn’t the definitive version of the track (I posted Solomon Burke a while back) this, for me, is the high point of the movie. Jake and Elwood know how to move! Also, I particularly enjoy it when they give a shout out to the representatives of the Illinois Law Enforcement Community…
