InflatablePlane : Between this film and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" I've come to one conclusion: The city of Chicago will break out into random song and dance at the drop of a hat.

Dana H : 37 yrs later and nothing else comes close to these geniuses.

Super Sullivan : Ray Charles can make any piano work

Sturgeon : Remember when music was actually fun?

That1 Rand0m6uy : Fun Fact: The guy who did the flips was completely off script, but they liked it enough to put it in the movie.

William Hunter : Nope. Nothing wrong with the action on that piano.

willy birdie : Please do not make the blues sisters.. please just don't

Oink` : The whole point behind Blues Brothers on SNL was that they were so stuck in the past and convinced that the blues was the only true music. Forty plus years later, this video is still timeless - that speaks volumes.

SENO Sugarwater : There's nothing wrong with the action on that piana

Michael K : That bass line is phenomenal. RIP Donald "Duck" Dunn

Ruben Clemente : RIP John Belushi and Ray Charles!

Joseph Cunningham : What Non-Chicagoans don't realize is that as a city we DO spontaneously break out in song all the time

Jorge Segnini Aguirre : Whenever I play this song on my iPad, the battery stops draining and starts to recharge on its own.

10INTM : Interesting fact: it was really cold the day of filming, all those extras were dancing in freezing temperature.

Bill Otten : Donald "Duck" Dunn! What an incredible bass player! Who else could play the bass like that & still look cool smoking a pipe!

KCohere33 : I love how the little kids are dancing just as hard as the adults lol

ronald washington : after all these years this movie still stands out (to me that is) as the greatest musical ever made bar none! I was 12 years old when this movie hit the theaters in 1980, and I remember tagging along with my sister and her boyfriend to go see it and just being blown away! within 2 weeks I went back to the show (Chicago Theatre baby! )and saw it again! and these were the days where you could pay for your ticket and sit in there all day if you liked and that's exactly what I did!!! LOL R. I. P. JOHN BELUSHI

Ragnarok : Still best movie i have ever seen. I have watched the Aretha franklin a thousand times. She is so great. Best voice in history..

Terry McK : Ray Charles legend iconic gentleman pure class this is truly a great song from the brilliant blues brothers 1980 hit film awesome this was just mind blowing and is a cult classic !!!

rwa2play : To think that this was one of the expensive movies at the time and yet doubled its money back at the box office just says everything about this movie Awesome all around.

Sincopare : I feel sorry for anyone without enough bass to hear Donald Duck Dunn dancin all over the frets

ISureDoLikeCats : 2:08 Is that Bernie Sanders in the background trying to get the Black Vote?

Michelangelo D'Imperio : This has got to be one of my favourite movies.
