Meh
Love this song
@Rachel ... disagree WRT Vanessa Carlton ... love her "ohhhhh bop bops" as they come through, little ghostly sounding with the echo ... Though I would have loved for more than just the short background she does....
I just love the counting crows, just seems that they seem to have a song for so many points in my life I have been through and that I can relate to. Bar-none my fav. musicians period. Which says alot cause I love the metal and even more so the deathmetal genre. I would take counting crows over all that cause they know whats real and have felt whats real. The heart. A heart can be through so much in so many ways but yet still succeed. He over came his love with maria. Most of his songs were about

Vanessa Carlton should not have been with Counting Crows. They didn't mix well.

I love this song, love this band, but nobody can top Joni Mitchell!
Yeah, good message but probably one of the worst songs ever covered

The song is talking about how people don't appreciate what they have until it is gone. That people should remember and take care of the things in their lives that truly matter.

The main point being that his girl left in a Big Yellow Taxi, after hearing the screen door slam shut. This passage is short within the song to signify the reason she is leaving; lack of importance and attention in his relationship .

I love Counting Crows but this has to be the worst song they have covered, no?
good song
they paved paradise to put up a parking lot
