Jazz songwriter Bobby Troup wrote "Route 66" while taking the fabled highway to L.A. in search of fame and fortune when he came back from World War II. Nat King Cole, whose zen-like cool remains unparalleled, made the tune even hipper, turning it into the rare number that united zoot suiters, urban beatniks and long-haul truckers. You want to teach someone about America, play them this song. Nick Dedina, Google Play
