Welcome to Retroville! It's 1959!
In 1959, Frankie Avalon released Venus. The song quickly rose on Billboard's charts to capture the Number One position. The song would become the signature song for Frankie Avalon and would appear in several films including Grease starring Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta.

The Lyrics:

Hey, Venus! Oh, Venus!

Venus if you will
Please send a little girl for me to thrill.
A girl who wants my kisses and my arms
A girl with all the charms of you.

Venus, make her fair
A lovely girl with sunlight in her hair.
And take the brightest stars up in the skies
And place them in her eyes for me.

Venus, goddess of love that you are,
Surely the things I ask
Can't be too great a task.

Venus, if you do
I promise that I always will be true.
I'll give her all the love I have to give
As long as we both shall live.

Venus, goddess of love that you are
Surely the things I ask
Can't be too great a task.

Venus if you do
I promise that I always will be true.
I'll give her all the love I have to give
As long as we both shall live.

Hey, Venus! Oh, Venus!
Make my wish come true.
