"They paved paradise, put up a parking lot."

Hey, it's no wonder ticket prices went up, somebody's gotta pick up the tab for the survey, dozers, graders, cement mixers, construction-site featherbedding, and time-honored customary bribes to local officials and inspectors.

Not to mention the post-1970's environmental impact study, traffic flow analysis, retaining pond for stormwater runoff, ...

On a more serious note, I was a fan of her whimsical, very non-cookie-cutter musical style, particularly her unique harmonies and lyrics. Too bad she seems to have given up touring.
