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 or parents and children to avoid the same fate. The most successful commercial version, recorded in 1964 by British rock group The Animals, was a number one hit on the UK Singles Chart and also in the United States and France.

The Animals' version of the American folk song is considered one of the 20th century’s British pop classics. While the original version was sung in the character of a woman led into a life of degradation, the Animals' version is told from the view of a young man who follows his father into alcoholism and gambling ruin. Although the date and author of the song are unknown, some musicologists have said that it resembled ballads of the 16th century, and could very easily have derived from one of that time.

The "rising sun" has been a symbol for brothels in British and American ballads. In the traditional folk version of the song, the main character is either a prostitute or a prisoner. The Animals changed it to a gambler to make their version more radio-friendly. It is not known whether or not the house described in the lyrics was an actual or a fictitious place. There is a B&B in New Orleans called the House of the Rising Sun, decorated in brothel style. The owners are fans of the song, but there is no connection with the original place. A. The Animals Lyrics

The Best of the Animals. Bring It On Home To Me. The Best of the Animals. We've Gotta Get Out of This Place. I Believe to My Soul. Get the Tempo of more than 6 Million songs.

In the heat of the British Invasion in the summer of 1964, the Animals' 'House of the Rising Sun' hit the top of both the UK and US charts. Alan Price's haunting hammond organ and Eric Burdon's impassioned vocals were a perfect fit for the track. It would become not only the Animals' signature song, but also the first seeds of what would eventually become 'folk rock. Out of step with most of the rest of the British invasion sounds, this record stood alone and utterly unique
