What I’m Listening to Right Now

Why The Village People of course. You know, that band that did those two songs on that one album in 1976? Wait, like other bands they did more than two songs and more than one album? Hmmmm. Do tell. This is The Village People’s follow up to their wedding-reception influencing hits of the seventies. The year is 1981 and The VP went New Wave. Courtesy of my favorite blog The XYZ Cosmonaut

So they’ve traded in the Cop, Indian, Gay Guy, Fireman, and Trucker for…a bunch of 80’s guys. I so wish they had picked professions again.

Here’s the songs.

1. Do You Wanna Spend The Night ‘Äì 3:34
2. 5 O’Clock In The Morning ‘Äì 5:03
3. Fireman ‘Äì 5:00
4. Jungle City ‘Äì 3:45
5. Action Man ‘Äì 3:05
6. Big Mac ‘Äì 2:26
7. Diet – 3:19
8. Food Fight – 2:34

It kind of great in that way that any random throwaway 80’s album is great, but knowing it’s The Village People makes it much more interesting. There’s two particularly stupid songs, Big Mac and Diet. The Village People are embarrassing to begin with, so, for their sakes, you hope those songs aren’t about what you think they’re about, but they are. Winner, you. Just like YMCA is a song about the Young Men’s Christian Association, so to is Big Mac about…a sandwich. Godbless them.

A couple lyrics I just heard while typing this.

Big Mac

Nothing’s better, nothing’s better, nothing’s better, nothing’s better than a Big Mac…when you think it’s the end, there’ll be arches around the bend…I’m so hungry, STILL NOT SATISFIED!

Diet

You sleep all the time, you sleep with twinkies on your mind…ice cream by the pound, you’re hiding food all around…Diiiiiiiet, you’ll feel better if you tryyyyyyyyyy it, don’ t you know you gotta diet or your gonna go away.

Just when you thought they couldn’t out-embarrass themselves. Genius. Now I will play Big Mac on as many occasions as possible just to get people to go “what they fuck is this?” so I can respond “haven’t you ever heard of The Village People?”

You see I’m not actually that interesting, but I know how to appear that way.
