A song that absolutely everyone knows, with a rich and amazing history that's an incredibly well kept secret. House of the Rising Sun, originally by Clarence 'Tom' Ashley and Gwen Foster, covered by Lead Belly, by Dave Van Ronk, and by The Animals.

Outro music is Do Wah Diddy Diddy by Manfred Mann (which took the Animals' #1 spot in 1964).
