When Jake was released from Joliet after serving three years of a five-year sentence for attempting to rob a gas station, he decides to put the Blues Brothers Band back together and begins gathering the former members for one last performance to save their old orphanage. The Irish supergroup U2 have been named the longest running active band on the planet without having any breaks or line-up changes. Finding people who can work hard to make great music is very special, but having agents, managers, doing tours and trying to live their own lives is always hard on a band. A lot of bands break up when one member decides to start a solo career, but a death of one of the members is also responsible for breaking up a lot of bands, like the Grateful Dead losing Jerry Garcia, or Led Zeppelin losing John Bonham. Some bands start out as great friends and then they start to fight with each other like Noel and Liam Gallagher did in Oasis, or John Fogerty getting mad at Saul Xanax causing Creedence Clearwater Revival to implode.
Last week we had U Do U where the theme was User Choice, and this is going to be an annual occurrence that will be repeated in the beginning of October every year. This week the theme is a song by a band that you wish were still together. Take some time to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this music challenge, and even better, read as many of them as you are able to as you will probably find many enjoyable songs and it is quite possibly that you will learn a thing or two. Share your music with others and post a video, try do some research and let everyone know something about the song that you post. Tell everyone why you like the song, whether it was a hit, or what you think the song is about. Show the lyrics, let’s all listen to our favorite songs and explore some new music. Try to find a song that fits the theme, then write your post and create a pingback, or you can just place your link in the comments section.

• Try to use the prompt words or at least conform to a general theme, as you see it. If the song you select does not meet the criteria, then please explain why you chose this song.
• It would be good if you could post the lyrics to the song of your choice, as this is helpful for the people that want to follow along with the music.
• Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due. It would also be a good idea to give credit to the singer and the band associated with your song.
• Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be, but please try not to include too many videos as that just makes it take longer to look at all of the other posts.
• Link to the YouTube video, or you can pull it into your post, so others can listen to the song.
• Ping back to this post or place your link in the comments section below.
• Read at least one other person’s blog, so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process.
• Feel free to suggest future prompts.
• Have fun and enjoy the music.
