Go West


Wikipedia - "'Go West' is a song by the 1970s disco group Village People. The song eventually found greater success when it was covered in 1993 by the synthpop duo Pet Shop Boys. ... The song's title is attributed to the nineteenth century quote 'Go West, young man' commonly attributed to Horace Greeley, a rallying cry for the colonization of the American West; though Victor Willis denies writing the song with a gay theme in mind, 'Go West' is generally understood as an expression of the 1970s sentiment of San Francisco as a utopia for the Gay Liberation movement."
