Info: Voicedude is the one to be credited for the idea (he thought of it first in 2010) and the difference in my version is that I've just made a little arrangement in the vocals and instrumental structure so it's not so long as his song... 
This is a real classic. Both songs from 1978! Wow, I'm feeling nostalgic...
According to our friends at Wikipedia: "The song remains popular and is played at many sporting events in the U.S. and Europe. It is frequently played during breaks in the action at sporting events with crowds using the dance as an opportunity to stretch. Moreover, the song also remains particularly popular due to its status as a disco classic and gay anthem, even among listeners who are otherwise uninvolved in disco or gay culture. It is also known to be a favorite at weddings and school dances. A popular dance in which the arms are used to spell out the four letters of the song's title may have much to do with this. "Y.M.C.A." appeared as Space Shuttle Wakeup call on mission STS-106, on day 11. In 2009, "Y.M.C.A." was entered into the Guinness World Book of Records when over 44,000 people danced to the song with Village People singing live at the Sun Bowl game in Texas. "Y.M.C.A." is number 7 on VH1's list of The 100 Greatest Dance Songs of the 20th Century."
And then there's Old Time Rock n' Roll. It was also listed as one of the Songs of the Century in 2001. It was re-released in 1983 after its inclusion in the film Risky Business and reached number 48 on the Billboard singles chart. The song remains a staple on classic rock radio.
