Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Things shifted around in their later years, though. "Chestnut Mare" was a Top 20 hit in the UK but didn't even make the charts in the US.
Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The bridges of a couple songs on The Notorious Byrd Brothers: "Wasn't Born To Follow" (music is suddenly phased and discordant) and "Old John Robertson" (a string quartet out of nowhere takes over the song).
"Turn! Turn! Turn!" was written (the music, that is) by Pete Seeger and was first recorded by The Limeliters in 1962.
They Covered Up "Jesus is Just Alright", first recorded by the Art Reynolds Singers, only to have The Doobie Brothers version Cover them Up.
Ensemble Darkhorse: Gene Clark and Gram Parsons both have reputations that transcend their brief stints as Byrds. While their solo work and untimely deaths have a lot to do with it, they both played important roles in the band's history. Clark was their best in-house songwriter on the early albums, and Parsons was responsible for their shift to Country Rock.
Clarence White's guitar virtuosity was a major ingredient in their later years and has also won him some admiration. And he died young too.
