Tucson, Arizona

10CC's, "From Rochdale to Ocho Rio"
The Lyrics:
From Rochdale to Ocho Rios
From Ocho Rios to Dorking
From Dorking it's back to Rochdale
From Rochdale to Ocho Rios
You spend half your life in transit
But where are we now?
Why:
Full circle. As if the trip from Rochdale (Greater Manchester) to Dorking (Surrey) v.v. isn't long enough, it really is a long haul travelling between those three places as Ocho Rios is in the north of Jamaica.
Submitted by: James Joyce
