The 101 number one song of the day has the distinction of having the most ancient lyrics of the rock era.  They go all the way back to the Old Testament.

 

The song was written by the legendary Pete Seeger who adapted the words from the Book of Ecclesiastes.  It was recorded by a group that consisted of Jim McGuinn who would later change his first name to Roger and David Crosby who would later quit the group because he couldn’t get along with McGuinn.  And the making of this record was not an easy process: it took more than 50 takes to produce the track that was released as the single.  But once it hit the airwaves it steadily rose to number one where it stayed for three weeks.  It was number one on December 5, 1965 for the Byrds (Turn, Turn, Turn)
