This might seems like a waste of time, but I do not think it is as much a waste of time as can a pop song become traditional. so the silliest answers are also accepted, have fun

Most people I know who perform the House of The Rising Sun think of it as a rock/pop song hit by Eric Burden and The Animals. Anybody who sings one of the other variants is considered weird.

There were lots of Bob Dylan songs covered by POP gruops. I would hardly call Gaudete a "Traditional" song - being ancient does not mean traditional

Didn`t the Dubliners make the charts with "Seven drunken nights"?
Of which there are variants like "Intoxicated rat" (Harry Smith Anthology)...

And "Whiskey in the jar" done by Thin Lizzy and Metallica - oh no, that`s rock....

Did the Beatles not start off with "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean?"
Meanwhile, we all wait with anticipation for Jedward's new CD. That might answer the question.
