can't help but think of that old folk song every time i'm in this library.
in case you're not familiar with it..
Little boxes on the hillside,
There's a green one and a pink one
And the people in the houses

My mom always sang that song when we drove past those condominium complexes along the turnpike. Thanks for reminding me of a nice memory :)

I knew this song! My son heard while watching Weeds" and thought it was written for the TV show. I told him it was an existing song - now I'm curious about the artist and the date. Anybody know??

I remember singing it at primary school in the late 70's.

Little Boxes by Malvina Reynolds
And they all play on the golf course and drink their martinis dry,
And the boys go into business and marry and raise a family

For some reason I'm reminded of David Byrne's counterpoint in the movie True Stories...
"Look at this. Who can say it isn't beautiful? Sky, bricks. Who do you think lives there? Four-car garage. Hope, fear, excitement, satisfaction."
"Metal buildings are the dream that Modern Architects had at the beginning of this century. It has finally come true, but they themselves don't realize it. That's because it doesn't take an Architect to build a metal building. You just order them out of a catalog - comes with a bunch of guys who put it together in a couple of days, maybe a week. And there you go - you're all set to go into business - just slap a sign out front."
