Description:
For the 1941 Abbott & Costello film, see In the Navy .


"In the Navy" is a 1979 hit song (U.S. #3, U.K. #2) by Village People. The United States Navy considered using the song in a recruiting advertising campaign on television and radio. They contacted manager Henri Belolo who gave the rights for free on the condition that the Navy help them shoot the music video. Less than a month later, Village People arrived at the San Diego Naval base. The Navy provided them with a warship (USS Reasoner ), several aircraft, and the crew of the ship (with the stipulation that the crew wouldn't dance). The Navy later canceled the campaign after protests erupted over using taxpayer money for a music video of a controversial group.

It was the last top 10 hit for the group in the United States.
