Vintage Tune of the Day: The Animals "The House of the Rising Sun"

What a nice little tune about...a brothel, no bigs.

The most surprising thing you might learn today is that this song is claimed to have been made all the way back in the 16th Century and over time adopted in the late 19th/early 20th Century by Americans who changed the location to New Orleans.

In any event here is the most famous of all the different renditions this song has offered.
