 No! That's the cool appeal! 
 

 Mariska died in 2006. This is her last appearance (too many pizzas alas). 
R.I.P.

 Re "Ha ha ha...never seen that.  She is so surreal looking!":
 

 When I first saw Shocking Blue I assumed they were into drugs and black magic 
and God-knows-what but they were actually quite sober and provincial in their 
"lifestyles".  Bananarama's version was typically over-produced as if they 
didn't have faith in the song's appeal.

Bananarama's version from the 1980's. Goodness, I soooo didn't fit in to the 
1980's.

 Another all-time great riff is on "Venus" by Shocking Blue (fantastic band 
name!). They stole the riff from The Big 3's "The Banjo Song" but who remembers 
them?

 ZZ Top - Got Me Under Pressure (Live In Texas):
 http://youtu.be/ZHRHc5HmFHg http://youtu.be/ZHRHc5HmFHg
 

 ZZ Top - Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill, and Frank Beard (the one without a beard). 
ZZ Top is considered to be one of the greatest rock bands of all time. Some of 
the songs are so powerful they were once recommended by Rama. Several of the 
members are very fond of MMY - one became a TM Teacher. 
 

 "ZZ Top was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004. As a group, 
ZZ Top possesses 11 gold records and 7 platinum (13 multi-platinum) records; 
their 1983 album, Eliminator, remains the group's most commercially successful 
record, selling over 10 million units."
