  1. Love this song…this and “Never Marry A Railroad Man.”
    Those two should have at least been hits…not top 10 but a little higher.

  2. Cool tune. I guess I’m one of most music fans who essentially only know Shocking Blue because of “Venus,” which I’ve always loved.

    My streaming music provider also calls out another great song called “Send Me a Postcard,” noting the striking similarity of the opening riff to Iron Butterfly’s “In-a-Gadda-da-Vida.” I have to admit they are right. This tune nicely rocks and would have deserved to be a hit.
