House Of The Rising Sun Lyrics - Muse

Review The Song (12)



There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
Well it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God, I know, I'm one

Well Mother, tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Or you'll spend your life in sin and misery
In the house of the Rising Sun

Well there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
Well it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God, I know, I'm one

No man was ever a prisoner in a bordello | Reviewer: Christian | 12/19/11

Although musically great, the change by Eric Burdon of the narrator's gender from "girl" to "boy" in the Animals version renders the song House of the Rising Sun meaningless. The Rising Sun was a bordello in New Orleans. If listened to from the female perspective it is a powerful song. Bob Dylan on his first album had the guts to keep the correct gender. It seems that Burdon was insecure about his manhood and thought perhaps that his mates would tease him about being a girl. Poor little wanker.

The song "House of the Rising Sun" is an old american folksong, and is used in the beginning of The saints are coming. many bands have used these lyrics but this version is the best.



Awesome | Reviewer: Yamikuro Shinoko | 1/21/10

I wanted to say that this song rocks. I love the way that he sang it, it's so beautiful.i always listen 2 this song and repeat it. But 2 bad the song's short. But the song still rocks!!!! Those 2 guys r right muse can totally cover. Big fan and Muse rocks

Don't you think that the first verse start from 'there is a house...until i'm one' are exactly the same as green day's song(the cover of the skids 'the saints are coming',which they sang with U2)start at the first verse when billie started to sing. Just listen, i know i've heard it. Just listen. Believe me.



xD | Reviewer: Kimonster | 11/8/08

wow | Reviewer: zach | 7/23/08

first of all, the muse are fucking amazing. no way else to put it. i like every single song they ever wrote the very first time i listened to it. second of all, they can cover shit SO well.... they don't change it so much its not even the same song anymore, but they change it enough for it to be original...another really good cover by them is feeling good, if anyone is interested



HOTRS | Reviewer: Mattthew | 4/9/08

Holy S$*# shit is incradable.... HOTRS is amazing... so many friends where i live from N.O I wanna break down everytime i hear it, they have all fell in love with the song just as much as I after hearing it. Great Work. Absolutly amazing.



AMAZING! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/2/07

The second I heard this song I almost cried! It rocked better than some of their original music, like Knights of Cydonia (don't get me wrong - I love that song). I have been a true fan of Muse for a couple of years and this retake of The Animals version just tops their talent... AWESOME!



nice.. | Reviewer: El | 8/6/07

very nice, im a big fan of muse, n i love how they cover their old stuff.
if u like this, u should check out their cover of the song "can't take my eyes off you", which is amazing.
peace xox



OMG! | Reviewer: pattycrack | 7/13/07

I couldn't beleive it when I saw that Muse covered this. I love Muse and the song all together. So basically...

Muse + HOTRS = F***ING AMAZING!!!
