goodnight irene

after hearing news that a friend's film, goodnight irene, picked up the best narrative award at the new orleans film festival, i did a google search and came up with this youtube clip of leadbelly singing "goodnight irene." equally awesome.

also awesome, leadbelly singing "house of the rising sun":

i love these creepy, haunting lyrics. what is it about new orleans that is inevitably spooky? i think it really is the city of the dead!

There is a house 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
