A long time ago, I went to see a friend who was living in Santa Barbara at the time. I decided to head down there on my motorcycle and I took the scenic route, Highway 101 to Highway 1, if I remember correctly. It was roughly a 7 or 8 hour trip. I think around when I hit Monterey, The Smiths' Cemetry Gates somehow slipped into my head, I have no idea why. All I can remember from the ride, though, is me, my motorcycle, the highway...and that song in my head. All the way down to Santa Barbara. It could have been a worse song, I guess. It's just a little maddening after the first few hours.
