Big Yellow Taxi: by Joni Mitchell

Joni Mitchell singing ‘Big Yellow Taxi’. This 1970 protest song may seem an odd choice for this website. The young Mitchell had a pleasing, tuneful voice and this song – her own composition – was original and superior to other protest ‘folk’ songs by fakes like Bob Dylan. The repeated lyric “They paved paradise to put up a parking lot” was prescient. Mitchell was writing about the destruction of Hawaii’s wilderness but the song and its words are more relevant than ever. Here in California where Globalists are sucking in half the world’s population, concrete is King. Real conservatism begins with a resistance to parking lots!
