    Default Big Yellow Taxi (Joni Mitchell)



    Watched a Joni Mitchell interview on YouTube one evening, and the next day I saw a decorative yellow taxi in a garden shop. I took it as a sign that I should try this song!

    Thanks, Dave! I had a chance to record something today, so I took it! Even had some time to add backing vocals!

    A very appropriate song for the ukulele. Joni Mitchell is Canadian, but the song is actually written about Waikiki. The "pink hotel" is still there, but a lot of the paradise that used to surround it is now gone.

    Thanks, John! And the song is still appropriate for our times. I hear bees are in trouble!

    Mahalo, man0a! I read that the "tree museum" being referred to is Foster Gardens!
