Oh man, I had no idea Bobby Troup was a songwriter and wrote Route 66, but I am sure my parents knew it. I remember watching the show Emergency with both of them as a kid, and I knew from my parents that Julie London was a singer and they were married, but I did not know his songwriting history. I love that song too by the way. I would definitely include Julie London on the list of great singers that never got around to making a full fledged Christmas album that should have made one. I would add Roy Orbison, Matt Monro, Patsy Cline, Tom Jones and Charlie Rich to that short list as well.
