I used to play guitar when I was much younger - acoustic and electric - but as Olivier Noirhomme ( @MusicAddict1 on Twitter) writes: "the years passed and I began to play less because of work, social life, etc. It’s kind of sad to have less time for a passion but it probably happens to each of us."

You probably do know the song, but you don't know it's of Dutch origin. Venus by Shocking Blue ( original videoclip here) was a giant hit in 1969 and once again in 1986 after Bananarama covered it.
