The House of the Rising Sun is actually a traditional folk song, also 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 popular version was recorded in 1964 by the rock group The Animals and was a number one hit on the UK Singles Chart and also in the United States and France.
