YACHT ROCK!!!!!

YACHT ROCK!!!!!

Postby mister bacon » 24 Jun 2007, 21:06

okay, i might be out on a limb here, but i loves me some yacht rock.

what is yacht rock you might ask? that smooth rock sound from the late 70's / early 80's that defined an era. you know, Boz Skaggs, Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald etc..

so i've started a thread to hono(u)r my yacht rock idols.. the music i was raised on as my mother drove me to basketball practice.

have YOU ever wanted to know the story behind some of these yacht rock classics?

well, youre in luck.. because i've found a treasure trove of historic footage that helps explain some of the history behind some of the classics.

I actually don't hate that music with the fire of 10000000000 suns. And my dad loves it.

Some of the stuff is interesting though...like "Rich Girl" by Hall and Oates actually being aimed at the rich son of a record producer, but the words "Rich Boy" wouldn't work as well with the song as "Rich Girl" did.

Yacht Rock may have possibly led to "Regulate". That's where "I keep Forgetting" got big, and w/o that, we never learn of the Eastsiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide Motelllllllllllllllllllll.

I don't have any in any file-sharing-friendly formats, but there are some old videos on YouTube.

The Little River Band is one of my not-so-guilty pleasures.

That's actually probably my least favorite song of theirs, but Lady kicks ass. As does Reminiscing.

I actually like Reminiscing, but I like Happy Anniversary, only bec---never mind, wrestling is involved, and I'm trying to keep wrestling talk in the thread.

I am extremely disappointed that this thread made it to 12 replies without some kind of a cheap joke at Ogie's expense.

if im cooking frozen pizza in the oven, how long should i preheat it. box says preheat to 375F but for how long?

Apr 25
the opportunity cost of knowing how to preheat an oven is pretty puny compared to anything else
