" Turn Turn Turn"

OK, a little jingle-jangle: This King Solomon(!?)/Pete Seeger '59 composition was 1st recorded by The Limelighters in '62 - their backup banjo player, Jim McGuinn originally arranged it for Judy Collins. To this day Seeger gives 45% of the royalties to the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions as he feels he only wrote 6 words of the song (Ecclesiastes 3:1). 3rd single for The Byrds - #1 in late '65.

Yesterday's answer: "I Think I Love You". http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DwJYSu2OVCGM&h=9e4c7
