"Venus" is the signature song by Dutch rock band Shocking Blue. The song was inspired by "The Banjo Song", a composition by Tim Rose with new lyrics by Robbie Van Leeuwen, the band's guitarist, sitarist and background vocalist. Issued in the Netherlands in July 1969, it went to no.3 there. A short time later it became a global success with no.1 positions in the United States, Canada, France, Australia, Belgium, Spain, Switzerland, and New Zealand, furthermore no.2 in Germany, Norway, and Austria. On the Countdown Chart 1970 "Venus" reached the runner-up slot, right behind Mungo Jerry's "In The Summertime".
