Bananarama’s Venus hit #1 (1986)

The British pop trio sensation Bananarama went to number 1 on September 6th, 1986 with “Venus”, a cover of the Dutch 60’s and 70’s Psychedelic band Shocking Blue. It became Bananarama’s signature song and was a worldwide hit. Regarded today as one of the 80’s pop music classics, the song was produced by the same trio that produced 80’s hits such as Dead Or Alive’s “You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)”, Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” and Kylie Minogue “I Should Be So Lucky” among many others.
