Friday Afternoon Insanity: Yes, This Is Still A Neil Young Blog
As we promised yesterday, here's some Friday afternoon craziness. And, yes, this is still a Neil Young blog.
Yesterday, we posted a cult classic YouTube video of "Venus" by Shocking Blue which is based off of the Americana tune "Oh! Susannah" and its riffs. "Venus" was written by Robbie van Leeuwen and originally recorded by Shocking Blue for their 1969 album, "At Home".
As we mentioned recently, with all of the anticipation for the upcoming album Americana by Neil Young & Crazy Horse, there's been a lot of focus on the song "Oh! Susannah".
And just as we were reminded about The Byrds version of "Oh Susanna" and James Taylor with Johnny Cash's version of "Oh Susanna" along comes another "Oh Susanna" version.
Here's the video of Bananarama's "Venus" from 1986 album, "True Confessions".
Ahhh, those '80's....
Check it out.
