I truly love a lot of music recorded by the Animals, they’ve always been one of my favorite British Invasion bands. It has always bugged me that they’ve had so many great hits that have become forgotten oldies, especially today’s song. “Don’t Bring Me Down” reached #12 on the Hot 100 in 1966, and like so many Animal songs was also international going #6 in England and #3 in Canada. The song is pure Animals and Eric Burdon with a dominating organ riff from Dave Roweberry, and is my all-time favorite from these guys, but unfortunately it’s another great song that’s been forgotten.
