FCS Daily Music Video – ‘Venus’ Shocking Blue (1970)


Shocking Blue were founded in 1967 by guitarist Robbie van Leeuwen. In 1968 van Leeuwen was introduced to Mariska Veres, singing at that time with a club band. He persuaded her to take over the vocals, and the group recorded a worldwide hit with the song “Venus” . The band sold 13.5 million records by 1973 but disbanded in 1974. Veres died of gallbladder cancer on 2 December 2006 at age 59, just three weeks after the disease had been detected.

Lyrics below

A goddess on a mountain top
Was burning like a silver flame
The summit of beauty and love
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 your desire
Well, I’m your Venus
I’m your fire
At your desire

Her weapons were her crystal eyes
Making every man mad
Black as the dark night 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 your desire
Well, I’m your Venus
I’m your fire
At your desire

She’s got it
Yeah baby, she’s got it
Well, I’m your Venus
I’m your fire
At your desire
Well, I’m your Venus
I’m your fire
At your desire
