Big Yellow Taxi - Counting Crows

by Brian ORoark

In this cover of Yellow Taxi, the Counting Crows reprise the lament that “you don’t know what you’ve got til its gone”.  Hey Crows, this is one of the fundamental issues in economics!  No choice is free.  By definition you have to give up something when you make a choice, and in this case when people complain about not having enough parking, something’s gotta give.
