House of the Rising Sun

Okay, so I have an obsessive personality. Today, that translate into me listening to House of the Rising Sun on what would be an endless loop if it weren't for the fact that I downloaded about a million different versions of it, so I keep switching from cover to cover.

I think by now that everyone who wants The Animal's version of it has downloaded the song, but...

The Animals - House of the Rising Sun <-- My favourite version of theirs that I've heard so far.

Sinéad O'Connor - House of the Rising Sun <-- The reason I'm doing this. I forgot my memory stick and absolutely have to show it off to my mom when I'm at her house tonight.

Nina Simone - House of the Rising Sun <-- It's Nina Simone!

Tori Amos - House of the Rising Sun <-- It's live, so unfortunately not the best quality recording. But still worth listening to.

Bob Dylan and Tom Petty - House of the Rising Sun <-- There were about a million versions of just Bob Dylan, but this one felt more consistent from beginning to end.

U2 and Green Day - The Saints Go Marching <-- Okay, a different song, but it starts with the House of the Rising Sun lyrics, and I already had it on my computer.

*Everything is an MP3 sent on sendspace.
