This one’s for music lovers:

Shake ’em On Down isn’t just the name of this movie, it was what they called Blues guitarist Fred McDowell for his effect on people (in other words: he made them need to dance)

“Mississippi Fred” is the godfather of North Mississippi style blues, and his biography uses never-before-seen footage and interviews with blues legends to tell the true story of a wandering sharecropper who went on to influence the music of Taj Mahal, RL Burnside, The Rolling Stones and many more.  — from PBS.org

Shout out to Chris Wild for suggesting this video.
