    Great to see the Lost Exegesis back! It occurs to me also that “The House of the Rising Sun” & “Are You Sure?” are both folk songs (the former “traditional” and the latter from the mid-century folk revival), which makes them kin, and that folk songs often employ this sort of repetition with variation structure that you keep coming back to: Circular structures that end where they began, repeated chorus or refrain interspersed with different verses, etc etc.
