Thanks, MikeN1 for this great song!

VENUS, GODDESS OF LOVE
I was thinking that as far as Mythology goes, someone
representing Love would be my choice - what's better
than Love. Without love, everything falls apart. I do
realize the song is more contemporary, but it's still
talking about the Goddess Venus!

Venus (/?vi?n?s/, Classical Latin: /?w?n?s/) is a Roman goddess, whose functions encompassed love, beauty, desire, sex, fertility, prosperity and victory. In Roman mythology, she was the ancestor of the Roman people through her son, Aeneas, who survived the fall of Troy and fled to Italy. Julius Caesar claimed her as his ancestor. Venus was central to many religious festivals, and was revered in Roman religion under numerous cult titles.

The Romans adapted the myths and iconography of her Greek counterpart Aphrodite for Roman art and Latin literature. In the later classical tradition of the West, Venus became one of the most widely referenced deities of Greco-Roman mythology as the embodiment of love and sexuality.
