Yellow Brick Road or road of yellow brick?

You may be asking yourself  what does he mean by Yellow Brick Road or road of yellow brick? Well, in the MGM 1939 movie Wizard of Oz, we all know the Yellow Brick Road and there are few people who don't know the words to that famous song; "Follow the Yellow Brick Road."

 However, in L. Frank Baum's 1st book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900), there is a "road of yellow brick" that runs through Oz and leads to the Emerald City. Another difference between the movie and the book is that in the book, there are two places where deep crevices split the road of yellow brick, as well as a river that cuts through it. The movie never shows these.

Even Elton John wrote a song called "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road."

There is also a movie from 2010 called "Yellow Brick Road." It was not a movie I would recommend.

One more post using the letter Z and I will have completed the A to Z Blog Challenge. It was actually easier than I thought it would be.
