We come on the sloop John B My grandfather and me Around Nassau town we did roam Drinking all night Got into a fight Well I feel so broke up I want to go home

Jan And Dean's, "Dead Man's Curve"
The Lyrics:
I flew past La Brea, Schwab's, and Crescent Heights
And all the Jag could see were my six taillights
He passed me at Doheny then I started to swerve
But I pulled her out and there we were at Dead man's curve.
Why:
La Brea Avenue, Crescent Heights Boulevard, and Doheny Drive in West Hollywood, California. Schwab's is the former Schwab's Pharmacy at 8024 Sunset Boulevard.
