Jimmy Clanton: Venus in Blue Jeans


This was written by Howard Greenfield and Jack Keller and recorded in 1962 by Jimmy Clanton, reaching No 7 in America.

Britain’s Mark Wynter made a very respectable cover which I would prefer to the original were it not for his ‘la, la, dee, dee’ singing over the intro. He got to No 4 in the UK charts.
