Shocking Blue’s #1 “Venus” Performance Will Bring Back Memories | Society Of Rock Videos

And Venus Was Her Name

Dutch rock band Shocking Blue had only one hit that really took off, the unforgettable “Venus” that hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1970. Founded by Robbie Van Leeuwen, Shocking Blue sold 13.5 million discs by 1973, one year before they disbanded.

“Summit of beauty she was,aAnd Venus was her name. She’s got it, Yeah baby she’s got it….”

Looking like a 70’s model, Mariska Vere is absolutely stunning in this live performance in her entire laced leather getup and we cannot get enough!

Interesting Fact: Originally a Dutch song, Mariska sang the line “A goddess on the mountain top” as “a goddness on the mountain top” due to a typo and sang it this way in the video.

Although Shocking Blue finished their musical careers after this song received the success it deserved, this band and tune will always go down as one of our favorites ever and bring back such great memories.

+ Venus Lyrics +

Name Venus
Interpret Shocking Blue
A goodness on a mountain top,
Was burning like a silver flame.

Summit of beauty she was,
And Venus was her name.
She’s got it, Yeah baby she’s got it.

Well, I’m your Venus, I’m your fire at you desire.
Well, I’m your Venus, I’m your fire at you desire.

Her weapon were her crystal eyes,
Making every man mad.
Black as a darknight she was,
Got what no one else had.
She’s got it, Yeah baby she’s got it.

Well, I’m your Venus, I’m your fire at you desire.
Well, I’m your Venus, I’m your fire at you desire.
