random thought φ

(it's all Greek to me - I haven't a clue. . .)

but ϗ made me think of Route 66 for some reason, as sung by Nat King Cole:

If you ever plan to motor west,
Travel my way take, the highway that's the best.
Get your kicks on route sixty-six.
Well it winds from Chicago to LA
Over two-thousand miles all the way.
Get your kicks on route sixty-six.
Now you go through St. Louie, Joplin, Missouri
And Oklahoma City looks mighty pretty.
You'll see Amarillo, Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff Arizona, don't forget Winona,
Kingsman, Barstow, San Bernadino
Won't you get hip to this timely tip
When you make that California trip.
Get your kicks on route sixty-six.

why, oh why, dear reader, did noone ever write a song like that about the M11 or the M25? I wonder. . .

Original Song Title: "Devil Gate Drive"
Original Performer: Suzi Quatro

Parody Song Title: "M25"
Parody Written by: Phil Alexander

(Spoken)"Hey, you all want to go round the M25?
Well, come on"!

"Welcome to 'The Car Park'!"

Well, the Dartford tun-
Nel is junction one
On the M25
And exit twenty-four
Is for Potter's Bar
On the M25
Well you never damn know
How the traffic will flow
On the M25
As around you can go
Sometimes it's fast,
And sometime it's slow
When you drive
Round the M25

{Chorus}
So come and drive. Come and drive
Round the M25
So come and drive. Come and drive
Round the motorway, round the motorway
Round the M25
Round the motorway, round the motorway
Round the M25

At the junction fourteen,
Folks get really mean
On the M25
From there to thirteen,
Where roadworks have been
They're for Terminal Five
There's a guy behind
Sitting right on my a**, sayin'
Pull over, man
Let me past, let me past
Don't mess me 'round,
'cause I wanna go FAST!
When I drive
Round the M25

{Repeat Chorus}

Well it always goes slow
As you go past Heathrow
Round the M25,
You can go near to Wo-
King and Leatherhead
(Where is that? I dunno)
As you drive
Round the M25

{Repeat Chorus}

{Spoken} "Come on, boys. Was that our exit?
Are we nearly there yet?"

Come and drive. Come and drive
Yeah!

Unlike Al Gore, I take no credit for the internet.

my little brother once spent Xmas Day driving both clockwise and anti-clockwise around the M25, to see which took longer. . .
