The Village People were originally created by Jacques Morali and Henri Belolo in 1977 to target disco’s gay audience by featuring popular gay fantasy personae. Songwriters Phil Hurtt and Peter Whitehead were engaged to compose songs with gay underpinnings, and roles and costumes were carefully selected; among them a cowboy, biker, soldier, policeman and construction worker complete with hard hat.
The group clicked first in England with the single “San Francisco (You Got Me)” in 1977, followed by “Macho Man” in 1978. “Y.M.C.A.” and “In the Navy” were worldwide smashes, both peaking at number two on the pop charts. Two more successful singles followed, “Go West” and “Can’t Stop the Music,” and they become a household name world-wide.
