YMCA (1978) – Village People

歌曲YMCA,由美國 Disco 迪斯可組合 Village People 在1978年唱出。歌曲長達3分49秒,類型屬於 Disco 迪斯可,填詞作曲由組合成員 Jacques Morali 及 Victor Willis,歌曲收錄於專輯《Cruisin’》。

在當時,歌曲成功登上美國流行歌曲排行榜 Billboard Hot 100 頭十位及 跳舞音樂分類,更登上英國單曲排行榜。歌曲可說是組合 Village People 最成功的作品,賣出過千萬張唱片,一隊少於40首單曲的組合,居然可以賣出驚人的銷量。

歌曲在很多體壇盛事都用作配樂,更在第九十九次太空梭任務 STS-106 (2000年) 用作配樂。有趣的地方在於,在2009年打破了健力士世界紀錄 (Guinness World Record),有超過4萬4千人跳YMCA。在這一場全美大學體育協會 (NCAA) 2008年美式橄欖球比賽 Sun Bowl。

在2020年,被列入格莢美搖滾名人堂 (Grammy Hall of Fame),更被國會圖書館 (Library of Congress) 以「文化、歷史及美學價值」列入國家錄音註冊處保育名單。

歌曲的歌詞頌揚 YMCA 基督教青年會的美德。歌曲及組合 Village People 形象會令人聯想到同性戀文化。另外,歌曲亦有暗示把興祝 YMCA 這項盛事為野外露出 (cruising) 及 性愛 (Hook up) 的地方。

歌詞方面

填詞作曲由組合成員 Jacques Morali 及 Victor Willis

Young man, there’s no need to feel down
I said, young man, pick yourself off the ground
I said, young man, "cause you’re in a new town
There’s no need to be unhappy

Young man, there’s a place you can go
I said, young man, when you’re short on your dough
You can stay there, and I’m sure you will find
Many ways to have a good time

It’s fun to stay at the YMCA
It’s fun to stay at the YMCA

They have everything for you men to enjoy
You can hang out with all the boys

It’s fun to stay at the YMCA
It’s fun to stay at the YMCA

You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal
You can do what ever you feel

Young man, are you listening to me?
I said, young man, what do you want to be?
I said, young man, you can make real your dreams
But you got to know this one thing

No man does it all by himself
I said, young man, put your pride on the shelf
And just go there, to the YMCA
I’m sure they can help you today

It’s fun to stay at the YMCA
It’s fun to stay at the YMCA

They have everything for you men to enjoy
You can hang out with all the boys

It’s fun to stay at the YMCA
It’s fun to stay at the YMCA

You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal
You can do what ever you feel

Young man, I was once in your shoes
I said, I was down and out with the blues
I felt no man cared if I were alive
I felt the whole world was so tight

That’s when someone came up to me
And said, young man, take a walk up the street
There’s a place there called the YMCA
They can start you back on your way

It’s fun to stay at the YMCA
It’s fun to stay at the YMCA

They have everything for you men to enjoy
You can hang out with all the boys

YMCA, it’s fun to stay at the YMCA

Young man, young man, there’s no need to feel down
Young man, young man, pick yourself off the ground

YMCA, it’s fun to stay at the YMCA

Young man, young man, are you listening to me
Young man, young man, what do you wanna be?

YMCA, you’ll find it at the YMCA

No man, young man, does it all by himself
Young man, young man, put your pride on the shelf
YMCA, and just go to the YMCA

Young man, young man I was once in your shoes
Young man, young man I was down with the blues, YMCA
