Rolling Stones did it so much better

Want to hear this song done properly? Try Asleep at the Wheel. This rendition really does suck - just how big WAS that truckload of valium? :frustrated: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :frustrated:
 

Nat King Cole set the bar pretty high

I saw them once in the early 80's great fun. 
Depeche Mode playing Bob Dylan with ZZ Top distorted rhythm guitar riff mashup.  Ha!
Amalgam of Route 66 lyrics and that immediately identifiable ZZ Top riff.

<edit>   ... and what happened to tolerance?  OK, you don't like it.  Impossible to listen with an open mind?  Impossible to keep your opinion to yourself?
I actually quite like this...
...and I so want to support RP... I just can\'t be a party to this crap. goodnight RP
Blecch! Great song, great group, but this cover just blows dead bear. No spirit in this song, just a bunch of guys who sound like singing machines. Very flat. A better option would be to play the original Bobby Troup version, or something more creative from Depeche.
another example of why ALOT of the 80\'s music has very little value ! :roll:
It\'s interesting to see that it is possible for \"Route 66\" to be done poorly.
Yuck. :frustrated:

Well, alrighty then. I'll give it a 9. :D
What a pile of complete doo-dar...
This a great song from a very innovative and influential band.(founded by Vincent Clark -> Erasure BTW) Music is music! That is a strength RadioParadise has... :bounce:
Has a song and a musical style ever been so disastrously mismatched?

i was lucky to find this compilation on a special release by mute records (JUST SAY YES, or something like it). glad to see others are hip to this remake...way cool, daddy-yo :clap:
I\'m always surprised by how well this song works for me. Must be because the source material is so strong — and I don\'t mean \"Behind the Wheel\". 7 out of 10.
Kick ass.
