Shocking Blue in 1971

Shocking Blue’s  song “Venus” hit so hard in 1970 that many folks today think of them as a one-hit wonder (whose biggest song was even bigger for Bananarama in 1986), but they had a remarkable run through the early 70s. Here they are in 1971, on the German series Disco, which debuted on ZDF that February. Mariska Veres is one of rock’s great vocalists, tearing it up here on “Shocking You” (following the pretty nifty opening titles for Disco 71).
