You may not know of the group but you may know of this song. Considered a one hit wonder but North American the band did have in their native Netherlands. The band was founded in 1967 by Robbie Van Leeuween but wasn’t until “Venus” hit number 1  in 1970 in the U.S that the band was recognized world wide song by Mariska Veres.

The group Bananarama did a cover of “Venus” in 1986 that some of you may remember better.
