Go West – The Song
‘Go West’ is a cover song by the English synth-pop duo the Pet Shop Boys. It was first performed by the American disco group Village People, released as the lead single from their fourth studio album of the same name (1979). It was written by Jacques Morali, Henri Belolo and the group’s lead singer Victor Willis. The song’s title is attributed to the 19th-century quote “Go West, young man” commonly attributed to Horace Greeley, a rallying cry for the colonisation of the American West. Though the song is gender-ambiguous, it is generally understood as an expression of the 1970s sentiment of San Francisco as a utopia for the Gay Liberation movement. The melody resembles that of the State Anthem of the Soviet Union composed by Alexander Alexandrov.
