Written by Malvina Reynolds back in 1962, “Little Boxes” was a satiric protest song about suburbia and it was initially a hit for Pete Seeger. The Reynolds version would become the theme song for the TV series Weeds in 2005 which would lead to various covers from the likes of Elvis Costello, Linkin Park and Death Cab For Cutie. This is not only a catchy little tune but its lyrics still resonate and are still very relevant today which makes it a timeless classic we’ll probably hear for many more years to come.
Released back in 1967, the explosive “Purple Haze” introduced the world to the genius of Jimi Hendrix and it remains, to this day, one of his most well-known tracks. The iconic song is a psychedelic masterpiece with a very distinct, unique, guitar-led sound no-one has ever managed to match. A sound so distinctive, in fact, that the vocals are almost not needed here, even if they are also perfect.
Those who call the man a legend aren’t kidding around.
The footage below should confirm that for you if you still have doubts.
