Whilst I agree with Zeek about Rolf Harris,

There is also the Worzels cover of "Don't Look Back in Anger"

and

on a more modern note, I find the Black Eyed Peas "Pump It" version of the Pulp Fiction tune - particularly when watching the DVD - rather entertaining. ;)

I thought it was a pleasant change, at first hated it cos they'd covered Floyd but when i heard it a few times I started to enjoy it, still each to their own eh :D

Just found this....

When I was young, a few years back, us lads who thought we could play guitar had to master the first few bars of this tune. Back in the early 1920s, the name "Rising Sun" was attributed to brothels. The traditional version of "The House of the Rising Sun" speaks, not of a boy's experience, but of a girl's. Fact was, the Animals did not write "The House of the Rising Sun" If you look at the really small print on their 1966 album, The Best of the Animals, you'll find it was only arranged by Burdon / Chandler / Price / Steele / Valentine. According to folklorist Alan Lomax in his book Our Singing Country (1941), the melody of "The House of the Rising Run" is a traditional English tune and the lyrics were written by Georgia Turner and Bert Martin (both from Kentucky). Above are the traditional lyrics from Lomax's book. Did the House of the Rising Sun ever really exist? A guidebook called Offbeat New Orleans asserts: "The real House of the Rising Sun was at 826-830 St. Louis Street, between 1862 and 1874 and was named for its madam, Marianne LeSoleil Levant, whose surname translates to The Rising Sun". But no one knows for certain.


There is a house in New Orleans They call the Rising Sun.
It's been the ruin of many a poor girl, and me, O God, for one.

If I had listened what Mamma said, I'd 'a' been at home today.
Being so young and foolish, poor boy, let a rambler lead me astray.

Go tell my baby sister never do like I have done.
To shun that house in New Orleans they call the Rising Sun.

My mother she's a tailor; she sold those new blue jeans.
My sweetheart, he's a drunkard, Lord, Lord, drinks down in New Orleans.

The only thing a drunkard needs is a suitcase and a trunk.
The only time he's satisfied is when he's on a drunk.

Fills his glasses to the brim, passes them around.
Only pleasure he gets out of life is hoboin' from town to town.

One foot is on the platform and the other one on the train.
I'm going back to New Orleans to wear that ball and chain.

Going back to New Orleans, my race is almost run.
Going back to spend the rest of my days beneath that Rising Sun.

i concur!

heard a radio doc about stairway to heaven, and they interviewed rolf harris about his version. he said that he had never heard the original version till after he recorded his own version, he just got the sheet music and worked i out. said he disn want to be influenced by the zep version, but after he heard it, he said he was blown away by it, and had he listened to it before, he would have never done his version.
it was an australian tv show called, i think, the money or the gun. singers and bands were on it every week plugging their new stuff, but the shows producers being big zeplin fans, decided that they would only let artists do their new stuff if they did a version of stairway to heaven first!.
there was an album released a few years back of all the covers of sth, cracking it is too, specially the opera singers!!!!! :D
