With Burdon on trombone, they began as a jazz group. In part due to Burdon’s lousy playing, he switched to vocals and the band became a rock outfit.
When Price realized he had a fear of flying, he left the group.
Due to their wild stage act, they were called “animals” and the name stuck.

House of the Rising Sun

Length: 4:29

Release: 2018

Opening Lyrics:

There is a house way down 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
Mother was a tailor, yeah, yeah
Sewed my Levi jeans
My father was a gamblin’ man, yeah, yeah
Down, way down in New Orleans
Now the only thing a gamblin’ man ever needs
Is a suitcase, Lord, and a trunk
And the only time a fool like him is satisfied
Is when he’s all stone cold drunk

Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood

Length: 2:25

Release: 2015

Opening Lyrics:

Baby, do you understand me now
Sometimes I feel a little mad
Well, don’t you know that no-one alive
Can always be an angel
When things go wrong I seem to be bad
I’m just a soul who’s intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood
If I seem edgy, I want you to know
That I never meant to take it out on you
Life has it’s problems and I’ve got my share
And that’s one thing I never meant to do

We’ve Gotta Get out of This Place

Length: 3:12

Release: 2015

Opening Lyrics:

In this dirty old part of the city
Where the sun refused to shine
People tell me there ain’t no use in tryin’
Now my girl, you’re so young and pretty
And one thing I know is true
You’ll be dead before your time is due, I know
Watch my daddy in bed a-dyin’
Watched his hair been turnin’ grey
He’s been workin’ and slavin’ his life away, oh yes I know it
And I’ve been workin’ too, baby (yeah!)
Every night and day (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!)

It’s My Life

Length: 3:09

Release: 2015

Opening Lyrics:

It’s a hard world to get a break in
All the good things have been taken
But girl there are ways
To make certain things pay
Though I’m dressed in these rags
I’ll wear sable someday; hear what I say
I’m gonna ride the serpent
No more time spent
Sweatin’ rent
Hear my command
I’m breakin’ loose
It ain’t no use
Holdin’ me down
Stick around
But baby (Baby)
Remember (Remember)


Bring It on Home to Me

Length: 2:43

Release: 2017

Opening Lyrics:

If you ever change your mind
About leavin’, leavin’ me behind
Oh, oh, bring it to me
Bring your sweet lovin’
Bring it on home to me, oh yeah
You know I laughed (ha ha) when you left
But now I know I’ve only hurt myself
Oh, oh, bring it to me
Bring your sweet lovin’
Bring it on home to me, yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah)
I’ll give you jewellery, money too
And that’s not all, all I’ll do for you
Oh, oh, bring it to me
Bring your sweet lovin’
Bring it on home to me, yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah)
