LeoHareMusic challenged anybody and everybody to take the "La Folia" chord progression and do 2 things:
1) change the key of the progression, and
2) write or construct a song with the chords

So after noodling around in E minor, I discovered that the chord progression worked well with the old old song "House of the Rising Sun (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJf_GrQcZ00)", which has a history as fascinating as "La Folia". In fact, I was able to follow the chord progression exactly, at least from chord to chord.
