22 FEB 2019: Around this time of year many of us get itchy feet and I don’t know about you, but I love driving trips (provided I am driving) and today’s music video is about a trip I really would like to take. I’ve done a small stretch but the whole route is a dream. The only drawback is - I know all the words and would sing all the way. Not a pretty sound.

However, with these two ladies to listen to, I’d sing very softly.

Here they are – Diana Krall and the late Natalie Cole.

Enjoy!


Route 66

Well, if you ever plan to motor west
Jack, take my way, it's the highway, that's the best
Get your kicks on Route 66
Well, it winds from Chicago to L.A.
More than two-thousand miles all the way
Get your kicks on Route 66
Well, it goes through St. Louis
Joplin, Missouri
Oklahoma City looks oh-so pretty
You'll see Amarillo, Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona, don't forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino
Would you get hip to this kindly tip
And take that California trip?
Get your kicks on Route 66
It goes through St. Louis
Joplin, Missouri
Oklahoma City looks oh-so pretty
You'll see Amarillo, Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona, don't forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino
Would you get hip to this kindly tip
Take that California trip?
Get your kicks on Route 66
Get your kicks on Route 66
And I'll meet you
On Route 62
Get your kicks on Route 66
