Songs the Tassava Girls Like

Thanks to an jesting link from a Facebook friend, my girls heard Malvina Reynolds’ “Little Boxes” the other day, via a YouTube clip of the opening to the TV show Weeds. Unbelievably, they love the song – Reynolds’ unique voice and delivery, the funny lyrics, even the message. We listened to it about ten times in the first sitting, which was more than enough to equip them to sing the tune all weekend. I guess Raffi is the gateway drug to Sixties protest songs. (Speaking of drugs, I had to tell them that Weeds is actually about lawns.) Follow the second link above to hear Reynolds’ version, or watch Pete Seeger’s here:
