By the time the Village People’s third LP appeared in Fall 1978, the band seemed to be standing in every spotlight the United States had to offer. They were further rewarded as ”Y.M.C.A.” reached #2 on the charts in November. An homage to this esteemed club of the same name, vocalist Victor Willis and band power through the big beats and sleek strings with another up tempo smorgasbord of innuendo – subtly masquerading as public service but, in at least some realities, intending something else entirely. And while that was indeed what the Village People did best, the joke was still on middle America, who truly had no idea what grandma was singing about as she disco danced across the floor to ”Y.M.C.A.”’s nearly endless radio play. A major milestone was marked as something the annals of history now recall as little more than a novelty song, powered out of the clubs and onto the shelves of mainstream mythology.
