The Animals discography Eric Burdon discography. Book Category. Various places in New Orleans have been proposed as the inspiration for the song, with varying plausibility. The phrase "House of the Rising Sun" is often understood as a euphemism for a brothelbut The Animals - The House Of The Rising Sun (Vinyl) is not known whether the house described in The Animals - The House Of The Rising Sun (Vinyl) lyrics was an actual or a fictitious place.
One theory is that the song is about a woman who killed her father, an alcoholic gambler who had beaten his wife. Therefore, the House of the Rising Sun may be a jailhouse, from which one would be the first person to see the sunrise an idea supported by the lyric mentioning "a ball and chain ", though that phrase has been slang for marital relationships for at least as long as the song has been in print.
Because women often sang the song, another theory is that the House of the Rising Sun was where prostitutes were detained while being treated for syphilis. Since cures with mercury were ineffective, going back was very unlikely. Only three candidates that use the name Rising Sun have historical evidence—from old city directories and newspapers. The first was a small, short-lived hotel on Conti Street in the French Quarter in the s. It burned down in An excavation and document search in early found evidence that supported this claim, including an advertisement with language that may have euphemistically indicated prostitution.
Archaeologists found an unusually large number of pots of rouge and cosmetics at the site. The second possibility was a "Rising Sun Hall" listed in late 19th-century city directories on what is now Cherokee Street, at the riverfront in the uptown Carrollton neighborhoodwhich seems to have been a building owned and used for meetings of a Social Aid and Pleasure Club, commonly rented out for dances and functions.
It also is no longer extant. Definite links to The Animals - The House Of The Rising Sun (Vinyl) or prostitution if any are undocumented for either of these buildings. A third was "The Rising Sun", which advertised in several local newspapers in the s, located on what is now the lake side of the block of Decatur Street.
At the time, New Orleans businesses listed as coffee houses often also sold alcoholic beverages. Dave Van Ronk claimed in his biography "The Mayor of MacDougal Street" that at one time when he was in New Orleans someone approached him with a number of old photos of the city from the turn of the century.
Among them "was a picture of a foreboding stone doorway with a carving on the lintel of a stylized rising sun It was the Orleans Parish women's prison". Bizarre New Orleansa guidebook on New Orleans, asserts that the real house was at Esplanade Avenue between and and was said to have been named after its madam, Marianne LeSoleil Levant, whose surname means "the rising sun" in French.
Louis St. The building still stands, and Eric Burdonafter visiting at the behest of the owner, said, "The house was talking to me". The owners are fans of the song, but there is no connection with the original place.
Not everyone believes that the house actually existed. Pamela D. Arceneaux, a research librarian at the Williams Research Center in New Orleans, is quoted as saying:. I have made a study of the history of prostitution in New Orleans and have often confronted the perennial question, "Where is the House of the Rising Sun? Although it is generally assumed that the singer is referring to a brothel, there is actually nothing in the lyrics that indicate that the "house" is a brothel.
Many knowledgeable persons have conjectured that a better case can be made for either a gambling hall or a prison; however, to paraphrase Freud: sometimes lyrics are just lyrics.
