Weeds: Little Boxes

A few days ago I started watching the American dramedy Weeds, which tells the story of Nancy Botwin and her endeavors in the marijuana dealership and the way it affects her family and friends. The opening credits in the first three seasons is the song "Little Boxes" by Malvina Reynolds . Jenji Kohan, the series creator, supports the idea of diversity, thus the guest music appearances of more than twenty musicians and bands that all perform "Little Boxes", keeping closest to the original and still introducing their very own way rework. Among the names are those of Regina Spektor, Linkin Park, Death Cab for Cutie, The Shins and Elvis Costello.
