Powerful Song(s) Apr 2022

'Last Resort (1976) by the Eagles'

I’ll also mention “Big Yellow Taxi” (1970) by Joni Mitchell and “Paradise” (1971) by John Prine.

Desecration by Humans

In the 45 or 50 years since these songs were written, it has only accelerated. With the continents out of the way, near space has been, and the planets are being trashed. Apparently, humanity has never found anything it couldn’t cheapen, ruin, or drive out of existence.

Final Verse

“They call it paradise
I don’t know why
You call someplace paradise
Kiss it goodbye”
