Yacht Rock

My mentor back in Rutgers was a former roadie for Steely Dan. He had a live recording of their concert. Not a mass-produced live album but instead the one he recorded on reel to reel off of the mixing board.

If you can get hold of that, I would be the happiest little boy in the whole world and would sing your praises and carry your lunchbox. :mrgreen:

As noted by [mention]CrazyCraftLady[/mention], yacht rock is now in the list of genres that inspire serial killers. From Teh Wiki:
Several years later, Hall read an interview with serial killer David Berkowitz, in which he claimed that "Rich Girl" had motivated him to commit the notorious "Son of Sam" murders (although the song was not released until after the Son of Sam murders had already begun, casting doubts on that suggestion). Hall & Oates later reflected this disturbing fact in the lyrics of the song "Diddy Doo Wop (I Hear the Voices)" on the album Voices.

It joins the same category as Jodi Foster and Catcher in the Rye.

Need to make a pronouncement, here: apologies to [mention]yachtrockmiami[/mention], but "Dancing in the Moonlight" by Thin Lizzy...great song. Not Yacht Rock.

Ladies and gentlemen, given that [mention]yachtrockmiami[/mention] played a Daft Punk song today, I will introduce the sub-category of Nouveau Yacht... songs of a more modern, if not fully so, vintage which nonetheless encapsulate the perfect sailing-past-your-golf-buddies aesthetic.

Only two on the list so far, but others are guaranteed to follow.
