Little Boxes

While not quite old enough to remember this song, it was released in 1962, I do remember it being played on the radio.
The song Little Boxes was released by Malvina Reynolds, here is an excerpt from wikipedia.

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.

When I started to create this page, the song came to mind.

Hope you see the fun side of this.
