Get up and dance.
The Village People is an American disco group that formed in the United States in 1977, well known for their on-stage costumes depicting American cultural stereotypes, as well as their catchy tunes and suggestive lyrics. Originally created by Jacques Morali and Henri Belolo to target disco’s gay audience by featuring popular gay fantasy personas, the band’s popularity quickly brought them into the mainstream. The Village People scored a number of disco and dance hits, including their trademark “Macho Man”, “Go West”, the classic club medley of “San Francisco (You’ve Got Me) / In Hollywood (Everybody is a Star)”, “In the Navy”, and their biggest hit, “Y.M.C.A.”. They have sold upwards of 100 million records world-wide.
If you tell me you knew this was about being gay, I’m calling you out. Didn’t nobody know that back when this was THE SONG!
