Big Yellow Taxi 2007

1 October, 2007

I’m in the strange situation where I feel I have to update my blog a little or at least feel compelled to write something. Not just post but also to make a few alterations to the very core of my online diary. What has prompted this action? Well it sems that Joni Mitchell has released a new version of the song that gives my blog it’s name. Not only has she updated the song for 2007, but she has also altered the lyrics slightly.

The original song was a social comment about the destruction of the environment by man, the newer version of the song has been updated as kind of a “told you so” version, where Joni actually says in her opening lyric “So, they paved paradise etc..”

Her new album “Shine”, released on Starbucks own label (yes, I know! so much for her contempt for corporate industries like Starbucks and MacDonalds), shows that her voice and style have mellowed over the years, she is more relaxed and sure of herself on this album.

Apart from Big yellow Taxi, there are nine other new tracks on the album, you can download a WMA of the new version of the song by clicking here.
