"Little Boxes" is a song written by Malvina Reynolds in 1962, which became a hit for her friend Pete Seeger in 1963.

The song is a political satire about the development of suburbia and associated conformist middle-class attitudes. It refers to suburban tract housing as "little boxes" of different colors "all made out of ticky-tacky", and which "all look just the same." "Ticky-tacky" is a reference to the shoddy material used in the construction of housing of that time

The song came back to peoples attention when a new wave of artists released covers of it since 2000. And is most familiar as the intro theme to the TV Series “Weeds”.

I went through many cover versions of it , and the best one i found was by a relatively new band  called “As the Crow Flies”. You can freely download this cover version by Saving this mp3 file.
