Ah well, who am i to judge "The Worlds Best Songs ... Ever"
Not me, no. Now that they have two songs so far listed in the "Top 1000 Songs" lets hear from the "experts" and see what they say about the Village People .........
"Part clever concept, part exaggerated camp act, the Village People were worldwide sensations during disco's heyday and keep reviving like the phoenix. Producer Jacques Morali in 1977 assembled a group designed to attract gay audiences while parodying (some claimed exploiting) that same constituency's stereotypes.
Songwriters Phil Hurtt and Peter Whitehead were tabbed to compose songs with gay underpinnings, and roles and costumes were carefully selected; among them were a cowboy, biker, soldier, policeman, and construction worker complete with hard hat. " ~ [Source: artist.com]
Brilliant marketing and catchy tunes made this group very wealthy. Just ask Marilyn Manson he was obviously a very learned student of the Village People. $Kaching !$
