As all of you know, KISS is about keeping it simple by recycling and repurposing what is available, and no one does it better than this -- Little Boxes - Walk off the Earth: http://youtu.be/LM8JhvfoqdA Even I can't top this!! Enjoy!!!

This group does amazing covers and posts unique videos, but I was fascinated by the set for this on as it is ALL made from cardboard boxes.  Flipping awesome !!!

This song was written by the late, great Malvina Reynolds. A musician and political activist born in 1900, she wrote the song at 62 years old in response to the striking visual of the little boxes of Daly City (outside of San Francisco). These days there is too much else around to get that same impact. I think that Walk Off the Earth is a wonderfully original band, but the site should give credit to Malvina Reynolds -- great song, great back-story.

I saw this in the comments section of "Safer In Here" by EarlyRise. If anyone like rock check the song out. In my opinion it's fantastic. The message of the song is very similar, just portrayed differently.

Being a doctor/lawyer/business exec, playing golf and drinking martinis doesn't sound so bad to me, and it is a lifestyle many people genuinely enjoy. I personally don't want kids or a house in the suburbs but still that is the lifestyle many people desire and enjoy. Talk about a cynical song! Follows that innaccurate mentality of 'Everyone is a zombie...oh except me of course because I'm so free-spirited and unconventional!"
Report spam or abuse
No, the song is not saying that being a doctor/lawyer/business exec, and playing golf and drinking martinis are bad things, nor is it making the ridiculous supposition that everyone is a zombie. Those lifestyles make up the old "American Dream", and the song quite simply expresses the monotony that comes when many people are driven to fulfill the exact same expectations without personal direction. It's not cynical - it's factual, and it's a phenomenon which has existed for a long time.

I know what you are saying. People often complain that they are being individuals because they reject one ideology with another ideology. This song is talking about the robotic mass production of hyper similar middle class life. Middle class life was so similar they are all made out of ticky tacky.

There's a whole wikipedia page on this song.   Written as a protest to how everything at the time in suburbia was designed to be identical.

This is done beautifully, but the original song was a protest song and this doesn't capture that for me at all. Drive through the suburbs anywhere and you will see what this song was originally about.

Come on people.  This is the best cover of Little Boxes ever.  It beats old Pete's cover off the field.  Malvina Reynolds would be happy that W.O.T.E. covered this.  Most people consider me conservative, but little boxes is what was wrong with the U.S. back in 1962, and it's still what's wrong with the U.S. 53 years later.  W.O.T.E. is from our neighbor to the north and THEY are getting it.  W.O.T.E. is beautiful and magical.  Keep up the good work.
