The Village People’s 1978 camp, gay disco anthem, YMCA, has been added to the US Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry - a sign of the hit record’s historical importance.
The registry preserves for posterity audio that is "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant", with 25 titles being added each year.
Additions for 2020 also include Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You and Dusty Springfield's landmark album, Dusty In Memphis.
Speaking to the BBC, YMCA’s co-writer, Victor Willis, said: "It was about the urban lifestyle of when I grew up, going to the Y and playing basketball and hanging out.
"That was my interpretation of it. I didn't know anything about the lifestyle of other people that go there."
