"Venus": 50 years later and the women still go crazy over this song!
For example, Elvis and The Beatles.
Led Zepellin and Sting.
Motown and disco.
Punk rock and folk music.
In 1959, Frankie Avalon recorded "Venus" and it was a landmark moment.
"Venus" became one of the biggest hits ever and made Avalon (20 yrs old) into a huge teen idol.
"Venus" opened the door to the softer and clean cut male and female vocalists who dominated pop music between Elvis and the arrival of The Beatles.
Avalon went on to have more hits and make all of those "teen movies" with Annette Funicello!
Best of all, the girls loved it a lot!
They still do! They did when it was originally released and when a disco version was reissued in the 1970s!
