Inspiration for Expressway to Your Heart by the Soul Survivors; I-76 by G. Love & Special Sauce

Kenny Gamble of the songwriting team of Gamble & Huff wrote Expressway to Your Heart, the 1967 hit by the Soul Survivors, while being stuck in traffic on I-76. He writes of wanting to get going to see his girlfriend, which is what he really wanted to do. It is well documented on the Web, for example, at http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=14328.

About this song, it says that [Kenny] Gamble wrote the timeless Philadelphia lyric that likens an out-of-gas love affair to a traffic jam on the Schuylkill Expressway while stuck in traffic on his way to see his then-girlfriend, Mashed Potato time singer Dee Dee Sharp.
