Song of the Week

"Big Yellow Taxi" - Counting Crows & Vanessa Carlton
We finish unusual covers month with this rendition of a Joni Mitchell classic. As much as I love Joni, this one feels a little whiny to me. Allegedly the song is about her trip to Hawaii, she wrote it from her hotel room, and it's one long complaint about how much nicer the place would be if they hadn't put a hotel there. Can't have your cake and eat it too, Joni.

Name that movie line - "I could never be with someone who likes Joni Mitchell"

Ha, no, but that is certainly a classic! We were looking for "You've Got mail"
