Iin 1969, Robbie Van Leeuwen, guitarist of the Netherlands rock group Shocking Blue, borrowed the guitar riff from The Who's Pinball Wizard and wrote the classic rock hit Venus. When the group recorded the song in English, they were a bit confused on the translation of the lyrics.

The first line should have been "A goddess on the mountain top", but it erroneously went "A goodness on the mountain top".
