Well, I don't know much about music, which is why I don't often join in on here, but I just found this.

Not good for karaoke? I dunno, but here's a classic example of how NOT to do a song.

The Animals:

Aaargghhh!

Compare and contrast with how it should be done.
Sam Cooke:

What do you think? Does it seem like a simple song but it's hard to get right?

I have mixed feelings about The Animals' version - it's not that bad for a cover, but on the other hand it does sound uncomfortably like this.

I see Hilton Valentine (the guitarist) is wearing a big grin again, just like in the closing shots of the "House of the Rising Sun" promo. I don't think I've ever seen anyone so obviously happy in his work. It does rather detract from Eric Burdon's mean-'n'-moody image, though.

Got to laugh at that Dave, reminded me of Tony Angelino.
