Village People


Long before Gangnam style....
long before the boy bands....
there was Village People!

The group was formed during the 70s disco era and was well known for their costumes "depicting American cultural stereotypes" (from Wikipedia). After the first album was a hit, an advertisement was put out in a music trade magazine which read "Macho types wanted: must dance and  have a moustache." Ha!

and thus was formed the first disco boy band!!


"Macho Man" 1978



"YMCA" from a concert at Coney Island 2012

The YMCA will never go out of style. When I was in high school, it was played at every dance, and of course we still hear it at every sporting event. Which I'm not complaining about. :-)
