Turn! Turn! Turn! by The Byrds

“Turn! Turn! Turn!” is a song written by Pete Seeger in the late 1950s and popularized by the American folk rock band The Byrds in 1965. The song’s lyrics are taken almost verbatim from the book of Ecclesiastes in the Bible and speak to the cyclical nature of life, with themes of peace and hope. The Byrds’ version became a hit single and is now considered a classic of 1960s folk rock. The song’s signature 12-string guitar riff and lush vocal harmonies have helped to define the sound of the era.
