The Animals “The House of the Rising Sun”

Eric Burdon and the Animals sing their 1964 hit song The House of the Rising Sun.  Who could forget this memorable tale of a life gone bad (spent in sin & misery).  Turns out, people have been singing this song for a few hundred years, in one version or another, and the origin & author of the song are lost to history.  Hmmm, it must tell a story that still resonates today!  Mothers, tell your children, not to do what I have done!
