Also, if you are into internet radio, you should check out Yacht Rock Miami. Very large catalogue of smoooooooth favorites, including some that are quite obscure to all but the true aficionado; very few commercials to speak of.

I know for sure Captain and Tenille are Yacht Rock. I mean, one of them is a Captain.

Yeah, but is Jimmy Buffett "rock" of any variety?

Maybe "Keep On Lovin' You"...

According to Yacht Rock Miami, the "line" is drawn at "Hold the Line". In other words, anything louder than "Hold the Line" by Toto cannot be considered Yacht Rock...
