‘Big Yellow Taxi’ by Counting Crows Named Decade’s Worst Song


We've read enough "Best of the Aughts" listicles over the last few months that we're not sure we'll be able to stomach another batch until December 2029. However, considering there's been a dearth of countdowns featuring the decade's worst moments, we figured we'd point you over to the Village Voice this afternoon. There you'll find an excellent takedown of the Counting Crows' ghastly cover of Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi," the song that Christopher R. Weingarten and ex-Idolator editrix Maura Johnston elect as the topper of their F2K list of the decade's worst songs. [VV]
