‘Macho Man’ by the Village People – Classic Hit or Miss

Today’s Classic Hit Or Miss – is none other than good ol’ disco by the Village People.

It extols the virtues of working out and fitness: Every man ought to be a macho macho man / to live a life of freedom, machos make a stand.

Village People cowboy Randy Jones recalled, “The Monday after Thanksgiving (1977), we signed contracts and the Tuesday after, we were in studio recording “Macho Man,” with Victor Willis’ handwritten lyrics that were written in the morning with egg stains and coffee rings on it. Everything was happening that quickly.”

The song “bubbled under” the charts during summer 1978 before picking up substantial airplay that August. It became the Village People’s first charting hit, peaking at #25 four months before their #2 single “Y.M.C.A..”
