It's fun to stay at the Y.M.C.A....young man, young man, are you listening to me?
小六的時候,我買了一張瘐澄慶的專輯,裡頭都是翻唱老歌曲,譬如Dr Hook的"When You Fall In Love With a Woman", Leo Sayer的"You Make Me Feel Like Dancing"之類的。裡面我最喜歡一首叫做"Y.M.C.A"的歌曲。我那時候覺得很奇怪,Y.M.C.A不是老爸去學游泳的地方嗎?它事業做那麼大,還有藝人幫它唱歌宣傳喔。之後才知道原來是基督教青年中心,難怪事業大,因為是全球的嘛!
重點是,這首歌曲很有意思,是一群人的大合唱,聽那感覺就是很有黑人的味道。
奇異的是,這首歌曲並不完全表示了基督教青年中心,而有濃厚的同性戀歌曲意味。當然這首歌曲是要慶祝宣傳基督教青年中心的名譽,一方面也表示個同性戀文化。
這點是我看到有人分析才知道的,不然光看歌詞,實在看不出來哪邊有什麼同性戀味道。
不管怎樣,這首歌曲成於1978年,由著名Disco團體Village People唱的,一直到現在都是Disco名曲。
