Little Boxes, by Malvina Reynolds:

Little boxes on the hillside, Little boxes made of tickytacky
Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes all the same
There's a green one and a pink one and a blue one and a yellow one
And they're all made out of ticky tacky and they all look just the same.

And the people in the houses all went to the university
Where they were put in boxes and they came out all the same,
And there's doctors and there's lawyers, and business executives
And they're all made out of ticky tacky and they all look just the same.

And they all play on the golf course and drink their martinis dry,
And they all have pretty children and the children go to school
And the children go to summer camp and then to the university
Where they are put in boxes and they come out all the same.

And the boys go into business and marry and raise a family
In boxes made of ticky tacky and they all look just the same.

MALVINA REYNOLDS 1900 - 1978



Born Malvina Milder of Jewish socialist immigrant parents in San Francisco, Malvina was refused her diploma by Lowell High School because her parents were opposed to US participation in World War I. She entered UC Berkeley anyway, and received her BA and MA in English. She married William Reynolds, a carpenter and organizer, in 1934 and had one child, Nancy, in 1935. She completed her dissertation and was awarded her Doctorate in 1939. It was the middle of the Depression, she was Jewish, socialist, and a woman. She could not find a job teaching at the college level. She became a social worker and a columnist for the People's World and, when World War II started, an assembly-line worker at a bomb factory. When her father died, she and her husband took over her parents' naval tailor shop in Long Beach, California. There in the late forties she met Earl Robinson, Pete Seeger and other folk singers and songwriters and began writing songs.

She returned to Berkeley, and to the University, where she took music theory classes in the early fifties. She gained recognition as a songwriter when Harry Belafonte sang her Turn Around. Her songs were recorded by Joan Baez, Judy Collins, The Seekers, Pete Seeger, and the Limeliters, among others. She wrote songs for Women for Peace, the Nestle Boycott, the sit-ins in San Francisco on auto row and at the Sheraton-Palace, the fight against putting a freeway through Golden Gate Park and other causes. She toured Scandinavia, England and Japan. A film biography, Love It Like a Fool, was made a few years before she died in 1978.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Little Boxes, un brano apparentemente leggero ma dall'ironia dissacrante sul sistema di vita americano, celebrato da un milione di film e telefilm. Scritto dalla cantante e autrice californiana Malvina Reynolds  (1900 - 1978), il brano stata portato al successo da Pete Seeger nel 1964, entrando addirittura nella top-10 USA, e poi ha avuto molte versioni.

Una canzone che molti conoscono in quanto sigla dell'apprezzata trasmissione radiofonica Melog di Gianluca Nicoletti, uno sguardo anticonformista e anticonvenzionale al mondo della televisione (su Radio 24).
La canzone, inoltre, la sigla iniziale della serie televisiva Weeds (USA, 2005). Weeds (in inglese marijuana) una serie televisiva americana del genere commedia nera ambientata in una immaginaria periferia della California, in cui la maggior parte dei residenti sono coinvolti nello spaccio e nel consumo di cannabis (da ci deriva il titolo). Nel 2006 la serie stata candidata ai Golden Globe come migliore serie comica e la protagonista della serie Mary-Louise Parker ha vinto il Golden Globe come migliore attrice protagonista.
   
Fonti: vari siti internet


I ticky tacky della canzone possono essere tradotti con la parola che vogliamo, il senso chiaro; letteralmente un'espressione gergale che indica materiali di bassa qualit, potrebbe essere "case di cartone", ma nella canzone probabilmente esteso anche al materiale con cui sono fatti i laureati e la futura middle class americana.
