Becks Protest songs - destroying rural areas? (62* d) RE: Protest songs - destroying rural areas? 03 Feb 09


Great Song!

The idea being I would keep the essential lines of
"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."

But change the other words a little to suit our area and issues.

When I was younger I used this song at my school when they decided to shut down our school orchestra, which was a crime as we were the best school orchestra in the country (we won all sort of awards at the Royal Alber Hall). Myself and a few friends put posters and stickers with Yellow Taxis all round the School Saying 'You don't know hwat you've got til its gone'.
We got in a little trouble for vandalising school property but it worked the orchestra kept going. Although we did pont out we did use 'removable' adhesive stickers so no damage was actually caused.
Lets hope it works this time on a slightly bigger scale!


Thanks everyone else aswell, I have been trawling the interent and itunes trying to get versions to listen too, all sound great.
Looks like I am going to be busy learning new songs!
