It takes a Village, People
No, the Village People didn't disappear with the stroke of midnight on Jan. 1, 1980. Truth be told, it was probably that dreaded 1980 movie Can't Stop The Music with Steve Guttenberg and Bruce Jenner -- and yeah, the end of disco -- that did them in. They're still around today in fact. In 2004, they were the opening act for Cher's farewell tour. And in a few weeks, they're playing the Hong Kong Convention center in China, and a "private show" in Melbourne, Australia on Nov. 28. Hmmm.
But if you really want to see a real time capsule back to the year 1985, just take a look at their video for the song Sex Over The Phone.
Oh my. That's three minutes and 46 seconds of your life that you can't get back.
