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.

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

Super Sullivan : Ray Charles can make any piano work

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

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.

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

Thaapa1 : "Excuse me, I don't think there is anything wrong actually in this piano"  :) Great song and awesome movie !!

Sturgeon : Remember when music was actually fun?

Ryan Redinger : 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

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

crassenti : Why haven't they made a Broadway musical version of this movie yet?

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

FallaciousScotsman : 1:43 bruh got WAAAAY too into the brrd.

bbjornst07 : When traveling to Chicago avoid Illinois Nazis, Crazy Bitches, and Law Enforcement. And never. And I mean never try to steal from Ray Charles.

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

Ruben Clemente : RIP John Belushi and Ray Charles!

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

redcat608 : 537 people thought something was wrong with the action on this piano.

MisterUptempo : The location shots for this scene were filmed at 47th Street and Prairie Ave. The building that housed Ray's Music Exchange is still standing, and currently is a pawn shop. The mural is still on the wall as well, albeit faded after nearly four decades.

Luke Groundflyer : The bird guy always makes me laugh

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..

Jack Cade : Ray Charles is a God. And that BAND easily one of the hottest bands of the period.

Kaltagstar96 : Chicago is the only city where random strangers can bust out into perfectly synchronised dancing. Gotta love it.

trooperburger123 : my question is what ever happened to music and why did it degenerate to such crap in the 21st century? Why don't we get real music like this anymore?.. I'll tell you why because too many peeps wana hear that audio tuned, dubstep, emotional crap that makes no sense and lacking the soul of Mo-town

Roland Maerke Leuenberger : yes !!!!!!

Mathias Rodriguez : OUAIS CORENTIN OUAIS

Andy Miller : Is it just me or was there less tension between race back then?

shomolya : Shame you did not include Belushi's _"Two thousand for this chunk of shit?"_ and Dunn's _"There is no action left in this keyboard"_ at the start.

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

Davidian 77 : The Blues Brothers is like Gary Oldman in Leon. "Get me everyone....Everyone!!" John Lee Hooker, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles....

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

Vesta Beats : This movie never gets old

Matt Smith : i do this naked in my bedroom every night it brings me such joy

ClumsyMartian : Ahhhhhhh twist it shake it shake it shake it baby. Man I love this song. Ray Charles you're awesome r.i.p.

MinorCirrus : And to think this masterpiece film stems from skits and jokes...

Carissa Kasper : I wonder how many times they recorded the guy doing a backhand flip over the curb and dancing time. (0:27)

Rhodes : Such a great movie!

Suit FKR : This is what folks need now. Friendship.

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

Munk E. Punch : I broke my VHS copy of this trying to learn the intro riff Ray plays, such a huge tune

Richard Love : The best thing about this video is that it shows all races, young and old, dancing in the streets !

Mu4dD1b15 : That little girl with the wavy hair. Wasn't she the cutest thing. Had some pretty good moves too. I wonder what all the people who were fill ins view this movie now. It's got to be kind of cool to look back on it and see yourself as a kid. Plus if you look at the scenery, most of it is all different now. You think the soul food cafe is still there? this was a great flick. I still like the music. and the chase. How many 440 cids engines went to the junk yard with all those Dodge Polaris' being crashed.

Keshun Richardson : Best musical movie of all-time High School Musical don't got shit on this!!!!!! lol

KnightAJ : i saw them singing at universal studios.. my nephew liked it .3.

Ruben Delgadillo : One of the greatest musical scenes in cinema history! RIP Ray Charles and John Belushi.

King Gargantuas : Damn, Ray Charles is kinda like Beethoven if he was blind rather than deaf.

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.

Thomas Bush : one of the greats movies of all time..the musical numbers are amazing...
