When you’re looking to buy an instrument, you should really test it out to make sure it’s still in good condition. In this scene from the Blues Brothers (1980), Elwood and Jake get some help from music store owner Ray Charles to find out if an electric keyboard has any action left in it.

While the movie was written for mature audiences, this scene is a classic that has the kids up and dancing every time we watch it: Blues Brothers & Ray Charles – Shake a Tail Feather.
