Good track. Shocking Blue were a great band. Venus was a fantastic record, but as it was from 1970 and also a massive hit it fails to qualify for this thread on two counts (unfortunately) ... and the less said about that travesty of a 1980's cover version by Banarama with the assistance of Stock, Aitken and bloody Waterman the better!

An eclectic mix from me today:-

Little Red Rooster by Sam Cooke
Very different to the Stones version, but just as awesome.

Pushing Too Hard by the Seeds
Classic American Garage/Psych single from 1966.

Spooky by Classics IV
I also like the Dusty Springfield cover, and would say that the fairly recent version by the Puppini Sisters (which they perform in the last but one episode of Jonathan Creek) is nothing short of magnificent!

Hit Record by Brooke Benton
The songís lyrics are an instructions manual on how to make a hit record. The irony is this was never a hit record.

Laisser Tomber Les Filles by France Gall
You canít beat a good bit of French Ye-Ye music!

Kicks by Paul Revere and the Raiders
Yet another in the long line of good American sixties acts who were completely ignored in the UK.

Where or When by Dion and the Belmonts
From January 1960, so only just qualifying. Very, very cheesy, but I absolutely love this song.
