Bobby Troup's quotes

  • The best way to relax is not to relax. You must keep your body and mind active. This is the best way I know to stay free from hangups.
  • Sit on your duff and you'll become a mental and physical puff.
  • [talking about his twin boys playing the piano]: I'd be delighted if the boys decided to take up music as a profession. It's done wonders for Julie [wife Julie London] and me.
  • [in 1975] I am totally disenchanted with stage music, and I resent the lack of musicianship among today's kids. I just can't relate to them. I have always enjoyed performing and composing, but I can't delude myself. My era is past.
  • [in 1976] Well, somebody back there has been calling me about working in Michael's Pub.
  • [on why he never said he never worked on club dates prior to co-starring opposite Julie London, his real-life wife on Emergency! (1972)] It's mainly because there are no clubs available here in Los Angeles for groups like mine, for my kind of music.
  • [about writing the song "Route 66"] I wrote half the song riding along in the car.
  • [asked if he thought musical tastes in America might someday go back to simpler days when melody, not the beat, predominated] I don't know, I guess I'm pessimistic. But I'd love to be proven wrong.
