The Animals- House Of The Rising Sun-

05 Jun

The House of the Rising Sun” is a traditional folk song, sometimes called “Rising Sun Blues”. It tells of a life gone wrong in New Orleans; many versions also urge a sibling to avoid the same fate. The most successful commercial version, recorded in 1964 by the British rock group the Animals, was a number one hit on the UK Singles Chart and also in the United States, Canada and Australia.[1] The song has been described as the “first folk-rock hit”.[2][3]

    Wonderful sinister vibe. Even though Eric Burdon looks about twelve here.

    it is a unique sort of song. I don’t get any evil vibes. A sob story for sure.
