Music Monday: We’ve All Got the Blues!

Posted by on Mon, June 16th, 2014 at 10:00 am

Happy Monday!  See if you recognize the quote below:

“It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark… and we’re wearing sunglasses. Hit it.”

This comes from one of my favorite movies of all time – The Blues Brothers!  In today’s Music Monday, we pay respect to this classic film, which premiered in Chicago 34 years ago on this day in 1980!  With so many great scenes and songs in this film, it’s hard to pick out a favorite – but this will surely do:


Music Monday Trivia Question: How many total cars were wrecked during the filming of this movie?  And – what was the year, make and model of the “Bluesmobile?”

Congrats to: Chrissy83, JANICEU and swaguser63299160!  103 cars were destroyed during filming.  And of course, the Bluesmobile was a 1974 Dodge Monaco!

Music Monday Discussion Question: This movie blends music and comedy perfectly.  What other music-themed movies made an impact on your life or are just ones you love to watch?

Let us know in the comments below and tomorrow, 3 random people will win 25 Swag Bucks!

Thanks for your great comments!  Check your ledger to see if you were a winner of 25 SB!

Have a great Monday and week!
