FlinterFile: The Blues Brothers- Sweet Home Chicago
The Blues Brothers made the song Sweet Home Chicago popular again in 1980, when it was released on the soundtrack of the movie.The song is, however, much older. The first to put it on record was Robert Johnson, who therefore has been said to be the writer of the song. He used several blues standards to make his song, most notably the Ko Ko Mo Blues, which had both the most important lines “baby don’t you want to go …” and the lines in which the counting was present. The song became a song about the idea of moving to California and Chicago. The version by the Blues Brothers had a somewhat different text, which is simplified and is just about going back to Chicago. Enjoy
