Here's your forgotten Friday anthem: The Animals' 'The Night'



Three songs by The Animals from the ‘60s landed in Rolling Stones Top 500 Song List. They were House of the Rising Sun, Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood and We Gotta Get Out of This Place. The Animals broke up in 1968 as lead singer Eric Burdon started the band War.

In 1983, The Animals got back together to record the Ark album, which included the rocking single The Night, which peaked at No. 48 on the Billboard charts. As with many older bands, there are several incarnations of The Animals still performing, none of which have Eric Burdon.
