YES! Yacht Rock Radio is BACK on XM!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)
I was mad when they took it off last time and put something stupid in its place:mad:. Then a couple days ago I was listening to another channel when “Yacht Rock Guy” came on between songs with the hilarious accent and beckoned me to change the channel to 70(that’s seven-zero:whisper:). Now I can get my groove back on in my land yacht..soo yachtty.

 

They had it on for a few weeks in the winter selling it as an “out of season” thing but it’s always better when it’s warm out. Now if only it would stop raining here! :mad2:

 

is it just me, or does this music sound better when played through a pair of Bose speakers? :idk:. :D

Darn good reason to reactivate my Sirius subscription. Or not....

 

I believe it's a free weekend if you have an inactive radio. Sail on, baby!

Ughh...my GF's brother-n-law is buds with Christopher Cross.

 

Yacht rock makes me want to hang myself.

Now playing- Hall and Oates “Rich Girl”. It only rates a 37 on the Yachtski scale, but I disagree. It should be at least a 77.

Boz pretty much invented the genre. Or set the standard, at least

 

Ain’t no better Yacht Rock album than “Silk Degrees”.

 

No insult at all.

Lumping him with MM era Doobie Bros is pretty darn insulting.

 

*Yacht Guy*/ Apparently some people still live on land..

I am sure Siris did some market research and concluded that there was sufficient demand.

 

In addition to my "80's college rock band", I am in a yacht rock band too. We play infrequently but the audiences seem receptive. As we are playing, most of the audience are singing or dancing. To each his\her own. Peace!

Stylistically, they were really not that dissimilar.

 

I'd be happy to debate that with you if you feel otherwise. :)

Seriously? What’s the difference?

 

I consider “Silk Degrees” to be the granddaddy of Yacht Rock albums. I consider most of the stuff prior to that album to be more of a pre-yacht thing.

 

In my definition, Yacht Rock is the slick, jazz influenced pop-rock that was some of the first music designed to appeal to those aging boomers who were at least beginning to out-grow the harder-edged stuff they had been listening to when they were younger. The first “Rock” music really geared for an over-30 audience. Often with more adult themes in the lyrics as well.

 

As a kid at the time I liked this music because so much of it was slicky produced and played by stellar musicians. I aspired to that level of musicianship. And most of it had more sophisticated chord changes than found on most rock records at the time. But it certainly wasn’t “cool” to be a Boz Scaggs fan at 16.

Do you guys camp it up at all? I’d totally dig seeing a Yacht Rock band wearing the sailors caps. I’d try to find some young hot girl to mix drinks on stage. Yacht Rock Meets Dean Martin.

No, just the Michael McDonald era stuff. But Toto? Oh hell yeah. In fact, anything with a Porcaro brother anywhere near the recording is pretty much an automatic shoe-in.

 

Jazz rock fusion is almost always acceptable to play on the yacht. Anything that sounds like it took a LOT of money to record will usually qualify.

 

But the best yacht rock songs (IMO) are those with a bit of ironic sadness to them. Those that you'd play while busting out the lines of coke to impress that girl who is probably way too young for you but since you're now spending so much more time on your boat now that the wife has left you and has taken the house and the kids.....

 

 

 

Wow...you sure have some deep knowledge of this genre. Much much deeper I would say than any other genre you've discussed on this forum. Not that there's anything wrong with that. :D

Any other genre? No. Just more than I apparently “understand” about Black Sabbath. :D

 

BTW, Ozzy Osbourne wouldn’t even be allowed to swab the deck on the Yacht. ;)

Dude you know WAY more about yacht rock than you do about any other musical style and you've been waxing poetic about it in this thread. Just deal with that fact. :D

He wouldn't be caught dead near it. He would be part of the crew of this ship destroying it. :lol:

Only if he were hanging over the edge puking his guts out, perhaps... :lol:

Lol. Yes but that would be true wherever he went. And only after he'd bitten the heads off a few yacht rockers. :D

They’d never catch the Yacht. It is outfitted with only the latest, greatest most powerful engine and accessories. And the expensive brand names make it even faster! The Yacht would be skating atop the surf at high speed while those guys would be weighed down by all the heavy chains and armor and down-tuned riffs. :D

Without your slick, over-produced fake jazz rock poser "accessories," you guys would fall over board and get eaten by a guppy.

 

Vikings crossed the Atlantic Ocean in open boats powered by Odin, Thor and riffs like....:D

Sorry. Can't even hear it now. That is so far behind me. The Yacht is already many miles away and Gretchen is pouring me another Cuban Breeze. :D

I`m starting to like the OTHER Steely Dan songs besides the two I like. Something about some dudes.

 

-I guess it`s all about context. Steely Dan regularly scores 90-100 on the Yachtski scale.
