On the back of my recent Mars post I thought that I would have a look to see what I had in respect of Venus.
To my surprise even after excluding Boney M's Night Flight to Venus on account that it is rubbish it turms out that I've more songs with Venus in the title than I have about Mars. Enough even for a second post somewhere further on down the line.
I said in a recent post that I like my Friday music bouncy and at least a couple of these fit that bill. One that certainly does is Destination Venus a 1978 single by the great Edinburgh band The Revillos on the Sire label
We move from Edinburgh to Athens, Georgia for the second offering with53 Miles from Venus the last track on Wild Planet the second album by The B52's from 1980 on Sire
I don't have any records by Be-Bop Deluxe. I was wondering whether I should until I Googled them and the words Progessive Rock popped up. I'll maybe stick with the few songs I have on file including one with a good prog rock title Jet Silver and the Dolls of Venus.
Somewhat controversially I'm going for a band rather that a song for my last offering. I couldn't resist featuring Cleaners from Venus who appeared in a recent post from Brian . I've pencilled in Robyn Hitchcock and the Venus 3 should I ever get round to a second post.
