Personal Quote:

Nelson Riddle was terrific, he really was. And I always loved that theme. It was based on, I think, somebody told me, an old Jimmy Dorsey thing which was called "Oodles of Noodles," but I'm not sure about that. I love that theme, you know. Ba-da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da-daa. It's just a traveling song. -- GM, on the theme song from the series Route 66 (1960) See more »
