“The House Of The Rising Sun” by The Animals

29 07 2013

Here’s some colour footage from 1964 of The Animals performing “House Of The Rising Sun”:

In this video, lead singer Eric Burdon looks like a schoolboy who just got caught stealing lollipops from the local candy store. It’s very strange to see that voice emerge from that face.

According to Wikipedia, the Animals did this song in one take. “The House Of The Rising Sun” is a traditional folk ballad whose origins are uncertain. It was first recorded in 1934. Many people have recorded this, with varying degrees of over-emotion, including BTO and Frijid Pink.
