This is one of those rare performances that is actually better than the original. Don't get me wrong I love the original by Joni Mitchell but this version has a lot of energy and for some reason makes me smile every time I hear it. Of course this gives some dissonance to the lyrics which only makes it a more powerful rendition.

I really like the fact that this version includes a verse that is not in the version used for air play that I've heard.

I like this version of "big yellow taxi" better than the other version, which I don't remember who sang that, but this version, by Counting Crows, rocks.

As an educator I use a variety of music to diversify lessons plans in a variety of areas of study. This song was complimentary in our unit on the environment.

back in the early 70s, this tune was recorded more on the country/folk sound and i found it to be a great song to hum anywhere. the counting crows managed to make it even sound bigger, better than i remember. the beat is up-dated and so is my utmost like for this type tune. this doesn't always happen but when it does, the tunes of another day come alive with a sound that pleases and opens another generation to what turned and tuned us in with the originals. great job guys. you and this song rocks.

The original writer Jouie Mitchell, on her first visit to Hawaii, looked out her hotel room and saw beautiful green mountain and looked below and saw a parking lot. It broke her heart this blight on paradise. I wrote a speech about this wonderful song and it went very well.
