Coming in at # 5 on my favorite rock songs of the 1960's series is the Animals 1964 hit, the house of the rising sun, coming in at # 1 on the Billboard hot 100, the song is still very popular today and, played in many movies, it's memorable and, fun to sing along too. I also love the electric guitar in it. House of the rising sun is also considered to be the 1st folk rock hit. Check out a sample of the lyrics below. I think you will like them. There is a house in New Orleans. They call the rising sun. And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy. And God I know I'm one. My Mother was a tailor. She sewed my new blue jeans. My Father was a gamblin man down in New Orleans. Now the only thing a gambler needs is a suitcase and, trunk. And the only time he's satisfied is when he's on a drunk. Some information verified at Wikipedia and, the picture is from there as well, it's the album cover. This is one of the songs, that you turn up full blast.

One of the most memorable songs out of the 60's I would say.

@TRBRocks420 I think so but what happened to them? Seems they weren't around long.

The first recording of this song as "House of the Rising Sun" (it had been recorded under other names, such as "Rising Sun Blues" and "Rounder's Luck") was by Roy Acuff in 1937. It's a very moody and foreboding song, no matter who does it!

Awesome song, it was the first song I learned to play on my guitar. Summer in the city was the first song I got to do vocals on, and play.
