turn turn turn - a Biblically inspired song, yes?
Ice,Yep...Based on Eccl. 3:1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: 2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, 3 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, 4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, 5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, 6 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, 7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, 8 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
I asked myself what about the Byrds earlier songs like Tambourine Man and Turn, Turn, Turn are better in my mind than the rest of their work? I never could figure it out. The only other Byrds release that I enjoyed to any degree was Eight Miles High. While I liked the other two songs I mentioned, quite a lot actually, there is something about Tambourine Man that makes me sit still with eyes closed and just listen.
Sherry,I didn't particularly for Mr Tambourine Man or Turn Turn Turn back in the 60s...Love them now...something about the way the instruments and voice blend make a nice...peaceful sound. I agree with you about the rest of their music though...maybe it was they always seemed to be losing/replacing members of the band.
