Fun Fact Friday Part IV - Little Boxes



The Showtime hit “Weeds” featured a song called “Little Boxes” as its theme song for the first three seasons and it's final season. The song was written in 1962 by Malvina Reynolds and was a success for her friend Pete Seeger the very next year. During the eight-year run of “Weeds,” more than 30 versions of the song were used. (A similar technique was used years before on the hit HBO show “The Wire,” as each season highlighted a different version of Tom Waits’ “Way Down in the Hole.”)
