To everything (turn, turn, turn) There is a season (turn, turn, turn) And a time for every purpose, under heaven
Most people will remember this as more of a Byrds’ song, a group who immortalized the hit song, than one by Dylan.
Over the years many of Dylan’s songs have earned cover versions, notably the trillion versions of Knocking on Heaven’s Door, George Harrison’s If Not For You, The Rolling Stones’ inevitable live cover of Like a Rolling Stone (no there is no connection between the song and the group’s name), More >

Over the past couple of years there have been many attempts at creating digital newspapers. All of them tried to mash together sources and More >
