They ate the keyboardist! They're such Animals! Lol
Report as inappropriate
So did the keyboardist of Animals mostly do nothing except for a few
songs? It seems like most Animals tunes don't have any keyboards at all.

Before David Johansen became Buster Poindexter, MTV was playing a video of him performing an Animals medley (including this track) that was really quite good.

I'm wild for the Animals and Eric Burdon. So distinct and just always rockin'. Too bad they're known mostly by House of the Rising Sun. Which isn't all THAT great and isn't even theirs.

I grew up with this song and its still going! Oh yeah !!!!

@zinsser, LOL

I know that this song is a romance song, but the chorus would make a bad-a** protest song.

I danced to this song in middle school when it was a new song. I can't stand Eric Burdon, but this is a classic.
