House Of The Rising Sun

By | 2006 年 08 月 27 日

The Animals,60年代英伦一支杰出的迷幻/R&B乐团,虽然并不为常人所知,然而多年后的今天,我们依稀尚可听闻些许他们当年的杰出。The Animals成立于1960年,解散于1966年;其后1962年加入该乐团的重要成员Eric Burdon成立了新的乐团New Animals。2000年左右曾发行过一张精选集《Eric Burdon & The Animals》,足见Eric Burdon对乐队举足轻重的作用。The Animals的重要作品有:Mickie Most, these being I’m crying, Don’t let me be misunderstood,Bring it on home to me,We gotta get out of this place和It’s my life. 当然也有这首最最最负盛名的改编自Josh White版民谣曲风的《House Of The Rising Sun》。

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 bluejeans
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

[Organ Solo]

Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I’m goin’ back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well, 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
