Simply The Best!

According to a BBC straw poll, the sountrack from the 1980 file 'The Blues Brothers' was voted number 1.

"It's a 'Sound of Music' for hipsters, a film that lives and breathes music,"
said Andrew Collins, who drew 10,000 voters for his survey.
AGREED! The Blues Brothers is one of my favorite movies of all time. The music in it launched my love of the blues. This movie helped bring the blues back from the abyss. It reminded us of great works of Robert Johnson, B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley, John Lee Hooker, and helped inspire modern muscians Eric Clapton, ZZ Top, and Kenny Wayne Sheppard.

Rock n' Roll is the king, Jazz has all the sophistication that inspires us, but 'da blues' was there first to reflect on our inner workings. Anyone want to hit The Slippery Noodle sometime?
