REVIEWS
Average points: 3.86 (Reviews: 14)
**
Single 1978. Engagierter Text der Schwulen-Ikone Village People, aber musikalisch ziemlich grässlich. Nicht zu verwechseln mit der gleichnamigen Gay-Befreiungshymne von Gloria Gaynor (1984).
*****
geht mächtig ab, flotter Rhythmus, gefällt mir.
***
Schwach.
*****
Flott.
***
Da hatten die Jungs aber bessere Titel.
****
Okay!
****
Buena.
****
Durchschnitt aus den 70ern.
***
Kraftvoll, wenn auch ohne Nostalgiefaktor nicht so stark.
***
Die erste Single, die es auch in die deutsche Hitparade schaffte. Danach kam ihr größter Hit und ihr erfolgreichstes Jahr.
****
Hat schon ein gewisses Charisma zu bieten; ich runde auf, ohne ein Fan dieser bunten Truppe zu sein. Einen Unterhaltungswert offerierten die mir immer.
*****
▒ Persoonlijk vind ik dit, vergeten, plaatje uit eind februari 1978 door de Amerikaanse (eerste bezetting) popformatie: "Village People", best leuk !!! Kom zelfs nog net op de 5 sterren ☺!!!
****
... 4 Sterne kann man geben ...
*****
Da muss ich rogerp ein wenig widersprechen, finde das musikalisch ganz gut umgesetzt und mitreissend! Von den Lyrics her wusste man damals ja schon gleich um was es ging, das wurde damals halt nur ein bisschen totgeschwiegen :<br><br>People have the right to be just who they are<br>People have the right to share all of their love<br>People have the right to share just what they give<br>The right to their free will<br><br>I did not choose the way I am<br>I said I am what I am, This is my fellow man<br>Please try to understand, I am just a man,<br>Born into this world,<br>I am what I am"<br><br>Sollte eigentlich genauso wie "Y.M.C.A" die volle Gay Hymne sein, man hört es nur nirgends!
