If you ever want to fly
Mulholland Drive
Up in the Sky
Stand on a cliff and look down there
Don´t be scared
You are alive

Michael Stipe (R.E.M.) »Electrolite«

It is a drive and a highway, running eastwest, the supreme vantage point for the entirety of Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley. You can stand up there and feel like Christ – or the Devil. Mulholland Drive allows you both roles.
David Thomson »Beneath Mulholland«

Beneath Mulholland there are bodies buried:
Ghosts, spooks, those flaming images so pale
and filmy, the intimates we never met.

Vladimir Nabokov »Los Angeles Rhapsody«

I wanna go down over Mulholland
I wanna write her name in the sky
Gonna free fall out into nothing
Gonna leave the world for a while
And I’m free falling, free falling …

Tom Petty »Free Fallin’«
