I saw this an instantly thought of...........well (nevermind) :scared5:





Dear sweet Hamlet ...

Takes me way back - it's been a long time since I saw the clip...

However it has always been a gay icon.. For my wedding, my nephew downloaded that song, as well as many versions of "It's Raining Men" - hahahaa!! We played them at full blast to let the neighbours we were having a party!

Thanks, good buddy!

:hugs: :hugs: :whole waving:

The first, and only, music video produced and paid for using US taxpayers money. :D Originally planned to be used as a recruiting tool (it worked on one person), the entire campaign was dropped when it was learned the govenrment paid for the video. But the controversy only served to increase the song's popularity. btw, the Navy didn't even realize they had a bunch of gays promoting them at the time. :laugh:




rox - I can guess who worked with who and where - but do you know - are they all still with us?

Sorry but I couldn't help but post the YMCA version from the movie Can't Stop the Music

This movie has it all! Bruce Jenner (pre-cosmetic surgery), Steve Guttenberg's hairy pecs, Valerie Perrine, Rosie the "Bounty Lady" and tons of men in and out of tiny shorts.

I had no idea the U.S. Navy had actually ordered and paid for that piece of high camp with public money. And I’ll just bet they dropped it like the hot potato it was when they found out. Hopefully the cheque was in the mail.

Those videos are around 30 years old now. When gay culture was loosing prominent icons in the late 80’s and 90’s because of the AIDS crisis, there were many rumours floating around. Predictably I guess, chatter concerning members of Village People where mentioned. There were more important things to worry about then, but yesterday when I came across those videos I was curious.

So thanks rox for clarifying that.

enjoyed the clip joe - thanks for adding it. The films title rings some bells but I've never seen it. Is it worth viewing? :confused5:

If you enjoy 70s campy movies then yes. Plus there is a lot of eye candy. Otherwise, it's quite awful. :lol:

One critic said:"If Thomas Edison had rushed to the patent office with his movie camera and this on the film, they would have roughed him up and tossed him into the street." :lol:
