    Default Season 113 - "Yacht Rock!"



    Yacht Rock Playlist

    Sorry for the low volume, I was feeling very smooth. "Is that Yacht Rock? Turn it up dude."

    Welcome to week 113 of the Seasons of the Ukulele, Yacht Rock!

    From 1976 to 1984 the radio airwaves were dominated by really smooth music, also known as "Yacht Rock." These Yacht Rockers docked a remarkable fleet of number one hits.

    Here's a few links that will provide some ideas for some great Yacht Rock.

    http://www.helloloser.com/2013/08/05...-songs-91-100/ you can find 40 more songs by going to the other links on the page

    http://www.reallysmoothmusic.com/about-yacht-rock/

    If you're not sure if your song idea qualifies as Yacht Rock then ask yourself a few questions. Is it smooth? Is it a little cheesy? Is it AM Gold? These should help. But, if you're still not sure then check the links or you can PM me. I'm pretty lax on my themes, what's important is to have fun.

    Here's a list of some popular Yacht Rockers

    Kenny Loggins
    Michael McDonald
    The Doobie Brothers
    Hall & Oats
    Rupert Holmes
    Al Stewart
    The Commodores
    Christopher Cross
    Toto
    Chicago
    These are just a few

    Smooth videos are encouraged but not required.

    I'm pretty loosey gooseyon the rules so pretty much anything goes. Just don't get too liberal with the rules.

    Does the term "yacht rock" precede the Channel 101 mockumentary series? I've never heard the term except from that show.

    That's where I first heard, so I would say it started with Channel 101.

    I was more of a Huggy Bear man myself (although not in the pin up sense I hasten to add)...........The Seasons is where the elite meet and come to greet and eat and flee the feet who are so sweet with the finer things of life, beep-beep, beep-beep, beep. (spoken in my best Huggy Jive accent)

    Great theme Moons
