"House of the Rising Sun," also known as "Rising Sun Blues," is perhaps one of the oldest entries in the American folk songbook, with its origins dating back to sixteenth-century English folk music. Written by an anonymous author and set in the city of New Orleans, it is both a somber soliloquy and a cautionary tale. The song made its way to the United States and, by the turn of the century, was already popular amongst miners. Even though Appalachian artists Clarence "Tom" Ashley and Gwen Foster delivered the earliest recorded version in 1933 as "Rising Sun Blues," the song was further popularized by several American artists such as Woody Guthrie, Joan Baez, Nina Simone, and Bob Dylan. "House of the Rising Sun" made its way back across the Atlantic in 1964, when the English rock band The Animals included it as the album opener on their self-titled American studio debut. The Animals' version topped both the Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart and quickly became the most commercially successful version of the track.
