09/02/09 122 W - + 8 - 6 The Battle of New Orleans

Time to take a trip down the mighty Mississip', with animated Legos and music by Johnny Horton. Why are we listening to this particular song tonight, written by Jimmie Driftwood and released in 1959 as a Horton B-side on Columbia Records? 'Cause Mr. John Gale Horton also recorded Sink the Bismark, another battle song that was covered decades later by the Blues Brothers. The tune, which we were listening to tonight, can be found around the 'net. It was recorded for the movie The Blues Brothers, for a sequence filmed at Bob's Country Bunker. You know, where they played both kinds of music. The footage was cut, and is believed destroyed. Anyway, this is fun stuff. Enjoy.

Okay. We gotta figure out something these people like and fast.

This is totally cool… but someone had way too much time on their hands.

Go to You Tube and check out the other Lego War movies. They have a “Saving Private Lego” and Battle of Bunker Hill. They are pretty funny but the Battle of New Orleans is the best.
