"Venus": Frankie Avalon # 1 for 5 weeks in 1959

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In 1959, Frankie Avalon recorded “Venus” and it was a landmark moment in pop music.

“Venus” became one of the biggest hits ever and made Avalon (20 yrs old) into a huge teen idol.

“Venus” opened the door to the softer and clean cut male and female vocalists who dominated pop music between Elvis and the arrival of The Beatles.

It was a huge hit and the “teen idol” was born! (Did you watch “Grease” or “Bye bye Birdie“?)

Avalon went on to have more hits and make all of those “teen movies” with Annette Funicello!

Best of all, the girls loved it a lot!

They still do! They did when it was originally released and when a disco version was reissued in the 1970s!

Here is Frankie Avalon singing the first version from 1959 and the disco version from the 1970′s.
