Shocking Blue was a pretty big name in the Dutch pop scene. Singer Mariska Veres died in 2006. sad

The album At Home by Shocking Blue is incredible. What a talent she was.

Shocking Blue is the easy choice here. If I want to hear Bananarama, I'll put on "Cruel Summer" instead.

For a long-ass time, I didn't even know "Venus" was a cover. I brought Bananarama's 45 to Kindergarten for Show & Tell. Shocking Blue is the obvious right answer, but I definitely still like Bananarama's.

Oh and yes, that Bananadrama version was of course made by Stock, Aitken and Fuck-that-man.

Well, I am pretty sure that song would have faded into obscurity without being renewed in 1986.

Preach, brother! There were more artists covering Venus than just Bananas Llamas! I remember a pretty good version by Tom Jones! Shocking Blue was riding that Dutch Invasion of the 60s! Never marry a railroad man is another classic of theirs.

I didn't either. But I like the remix better than the regular version. That was the one I heard the most. There used to be a local radio station that only played remixes & extended mixes.


For 75 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras
