Let us now praise famous men: the Cowboy, the Construction Worker, the Sailor, the Indian, the Traffic Cop, and the Leather Biker. Strange as it would have seemed in 1977, the Village People have become one of the disco decade’s most enduring phenomena. There is not a sporting event, wedding reception, or monster-truck rally in the country where anyone would be surprised to hear “Y.M.C.A.,” even though it’s a disco anthem about gay sex at the gym, sung by six men who looked like they were just getting home from their Halloween party in mid-November.

The Village People were originally recruited by disco producer Jacques Morali to chant and grunt over explicitly gay-themed club hits such as “Macho Man” and “San Francisco (You’ve Got Me).” But his rhythm tracks were so undeniable — that pumping bass, those splashy horns — and the costumes so lovable that the group turned into a surprise crossover hit. Middle America got a massive crush on the Village People, even after straight people started to figure out exactly why it’s so much fun to stay at the Y.M.C.A.

Even more than most disco artists, the VP are best enjoyed one song at a time, although their original albums were all pretty good. Cruisin’ has “Y.M.C.A.,” the touching “My Roommate,” and “The Women,” which didn’t fool anybody. Go West has “In the Navy,” with patriotic cries of “come and join your fellow man!” above the hot-and-heavy panting of the chorus, “They . . . want . . . you!” It also has the title song’s irresistible call to a California utopia. As disco started to fizzle, the VP began their film career with Can’t Stop the Music and ended it about two hours later. Then they dropped the inevitable Live and Sleazy, featuring “Ready for the 80s.” Renaissance, their 1981 attempt at a new-wave comeback, is a prized collectors’ item in some extremely specialized circles, though the Europe-only Fox on the Box and Sex on the Phone remain obscure. The Village People eventually hit the oldies circuit, where they have remained immensely popular ever since, as they became gay-pride icons — Morrissey wrote the “Y.M.C.A.” answer song “Half a Person,” while the Pet Shop Boys elegiacally covered “Go West” on Very. Glenn Hughes, the Biker, died in 2001. At his request, he was buried in his black leather suit.
