This time we'll look at the Springfield Furniture & Recycled Record's Route 66 Festival window mural. Recycled Records is located at 625 E. Adams in downtown Springfield, Illinois.

The Springfield Area Arts Council in cooperation with local area businesses have teamed up to sponsor a variety of window murals celebrating themes associated with Route 66. The 4th annual Route 66 Mother Road Festival is being held in downtown Springfield, Illinois.

Appropriately enough the Recycled Record's mural theme deals with music. Gary Puckett & the Union Gap will be performing during the 2005 Route 66 Festival, and artists Daisy Juarez, and Alexander Juarez dedicate their mural to Gary Puckett & the Union Gap.

I include an image of a CD cover from Gary Pucket & the Union Gap, as well as lyrics from Lady Willpower - one of their numerous 1960's mega-hits which I suspect played a role in the "Lady Motel" icon employed within the Juarez mural.


Lady Willpower**
Lady Willpower, it's now or never.
Give your love to me and I'll shower
Your heart with tenderness endlessly.
I know you want to see me but you're afraid
Of what I might have on my mind.
One thing you can be sure of
I'll take good care of your love
If you will let me give you mine.
Lady Willpower, it's now or never.
Give your love to me and I'll shower
Your heart with tenderness endlessly.
Did no one ever tell you the facts of life?
Well there's so much you have to learn.
And I would gladly teach you if I could only reach you
And get your lovin' in return.
Lady Willpower, it's now or never.
Give your love to me and I'll shower
Your heart with tenderness endlessly.
Lady Willpower, it's now or never.
Give your love to me and I'll shower.
