It has been originally performed by the band named 'Shocking Blue' and now is covered for who knows which time in the history.
The clip is absolutely horrible. People are looking at the camera, they don't know how to act themselves, they only impose that they do something while they're not. For example, a female singer is a total mess – she barely opens her mouth to fit the words, but looking at her, it is hardly believed that she is actually singing. Especially that loud song. No one of them seems got used to the cameras and maybe this was one of their very first shoots ever. Maybe it was quite OK for 1970 when this song was released, but it's absolutely inappropriate in current years, 47 years later.
The genre is a folk rock in addition to the psychedelic rock.
This song has also significant importance and influence on the entire show business and it was used in fairly big amount of films, cartoons, documentaries, other clips, etc. It was even a commercial several years ago from Venus Vibrance by Gillette, a shaving razor that was specifically designed for women.
As for the position in charts, it went into the first 10 in the several countries, namely Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Ireland, Switzerland, Spain, the UK, and the US.
Among the named ones, it held the position number one in eight countries.
On the other languages, for example, the one from the Asian family, it sounds like 'Shizgarah', which is the mutilation of the original words 'she has got it'. In the wild Asia, even several clubs where people meet were named 'Shizgarah'. The same name was in one of the novels written by Asians portraying the life of hippies in the 1970s, who were living behind the Iron Curtain.
And of course, Weird Al Yankovic made to the cover on it with his own polka medley style, which is nothing surprising, as this guy parasites on the greatest performances of all the people transferring them into something mutilated. But we have to admit he has own style and while doing this, he makes fun of what he does, that is why it is so pleasant to listen to not only the originals but their covers from Weird Al Yankovic.
The famous covers that were done on that song were by Jennifer Lopez and the Muppets Show for the television. The other version by Bananarama in 1986 received a huge recognition also in the world and was included in much more charts than the original.
The essence of this song boils down to the fact that there is a girl who is similar to the goddess Venus, she's an object of desire of many men and she's got moves and the appearance, which make her such adhering object. Nothing pretty sophisticated particularly, it is just an anthem for the woman's beauty. Beauty doesn't have to be sophisticated – it has to be straightforward. Reference: Learn more about "Venus"
