Album 7.3.19

Yesterday in the mail I received three Village People albums.  In January of 1979 they released In The Navy.  I was still in the navy and we loved the song because it was so wrong and so campy.  Rumor had it the Navy commissioned the song as a recruiting tool but when they realized that the group's fan didn't quite fit with the group they actually wanted to recruit they changed their mind.  This was after they had let the group shoot the video on board the U.S.S. Reasoner.  The song still brings a smile to my face and I have been out of the Navy for forty years.
