I first heard this Malvina Reynolds tune while watching Weeds. Many covered it for the show's intro, but I always preferred the original. So I covered it. Her version remains my favourite, but it was fun trying.

"My mother and father were driving South from San Francisco through Daly City when my mom got the idea for the song. She asked my dad to take the wheel, and she wrote it on the way to the gathering in La Hondawhere she was going to sing for the Friends Committee on Legislation. When Time Magazine (I think, maybe Newsweek) wanted a photo of her pointing to the very place, she couldn't find those houses because so many more had been built around them that the hillsides were totally covered." - Malvina Reynolds
