Songs of the Past: The Animals – House of the Rising Sun

The only thing I ever learned to play on the guitar during my teens was the chords for ‘House of the Rising Sun’ by The Animals (1964) – I still think it is a truly great song, and it still gives me chills today every time I hear the opening bars… πŸ™‚

    According to my mum and aunt, when this song was played at home back then they knew one of my uncles had a date.

    Great song choice. One of the most powerful tunes out there.
