Turn! Turn! Turn!

Thursday, 16 July, 2015

Continuing our summer series on the great albums made 50 years ago, here’s Turn! Turn! Turn! by the Byrds from the band’s second album, which was released in 6 December 1965. The lyrics are adapted word-for-word from Chapter Three of the Book of Ecclesiastes, as found in the King James Version (1611) of the Bible. The song holds the distinction as the only No. hit authored by King Solomon.
