Abstract

Article considers the significance of the hit song Get your kicks on route 66!, written by Bobby Troup and his wife Cynthia on their road trip in 1946 from Lancaster, Pennsylvania to Los Angeles, California. The Nat King Cole Trio recorded it the same year. Place names from where 66 started to Los Angeles were included in the rhytming lyrics, creating a kind of musical road map for travelers and postwar migrants to California. This lyric cartography tapped into oral traditions of distant lands in metered verse that can be traced back to the Homeric ballads of the Odyssey. - (SLD)
