Taxi, 1978-83
The trials and troubles of the Sunshine Cab Company in Manhattan. It was the first time I saw most of the actors - Danny Devito, Judd Hirsch, Marilu Henner, Tony Danza, Andy Kaufman, Christopher Lloyd ... Altho it was a comedy, they addressed many more serious issues: teen runaways, single parenthood, drug & alcohol abuse and more.




Big Yellow Taxi, Joni Mitchell, 1969




They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique
And a swinging hot spot
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot



They took all the trees
And put them in a tree museum
And they charged all the people
A dollar and a half to see 'em
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And they put up a parking lot



Hey farmer farmer
Put away that D.D.T. now
Give me spots on my apples
But leave me the birds and the bees
Please
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot



Late last night
I heard the screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi
Took away my old man
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot


(Stephen Fry loves English cabs so much, he owns one as his private vehicle)

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Till it's gone
They paved paradise
Put up a parking lot



They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
They paved paradise
Put up a parking lot
