Music for Transformation

Musically, I know what I like, I can’t often name the artist or even the song title, let alone remember any lyrics.  This is probably why when reading the latest copy of Resurgence with Annie Lennox as guest editor I was happily surprised to read some lyrics to a song I have invariably hummed along to:  Big Yellow Taxi written by Joni Mitchell

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.
