I’ve heard many versions of the song “The House of the Rising Sun”. For sure it isn’t necessary, that I add my own version here – but, I beg your pardon, I had fun to do so and I hope I can entertain you:
The early versions were performed by Leadbelly, Josh White (with Libby Holman), Odetta. Then Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Doc Watson, Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, The Animals / Eric Burdon, The Beatles; The Doors, Dolly Parton, Pink Floyd, Muse, Duran Duran, Bon Jovi, The Ventures, Gary Glitter, Tori Amos, Jimi Hendrix, Frijid Pink, Led Zeppelin, Ten Years After, Santa Esmeralda.
