Big Yellow Taxi
- Counting Crows -
This is a melody that wasn't even on my radar the first time it made its rounds in the '70s -
what the heck
what do you mean "you don't know what you got 'till it's gone"?
- I was just approaching that age where I knew EVERYTHING and figured it would always be there;
and the thought of trees in a museum where they charged you a dollar to see them - ha!
But now, can't you just picture that along with the rest of 'crazy' we live daily,
things that at one time would have been considered ridiculous.
(I mean, honestly did you ever think those 007 car telephones were even remotely real - I didn't think so)
But now - good Lordy and how
I can appreciate just about every line in this song.
Joni Mitchell - who knew --- I thought she was just one of those pot-head, love shack, bra burning hippies.
But not anymore.
Not anymore sista.
