Shaken from smoothness by the wake of Koko's death, Kenny Loggins entertains the temptation of non-Yacht-rock.
Is it Yatch Rock? Or Nyacht?
Some songs I’d have expected to be higher aren’t. I’m curious what their additional criteria are?
Yacht rock (originally known as the West Coast Sound or adult-oriented rock) is a broad music style and aesthetic identified with soft rock. It was one of the commercially successful genres of its era, existing between the late 1970s and early 1980s. Drawing on sources such as smooth soul, smooth jazz, R&B, funk, and disco, common stylistic traits include high-quality production, clean vocals, and a focus on light, catchy melodies. Its name, coined in the 2000s by the makers of the online video series Yacht Rock, was derived from its association with the popular Southern Californian leisure activity of sailing.
Hall and Oates go toe to toe with McDonald and Loggins in a back alley contest, with tragic results.
Longtime Channel 101 bridesmaids J.D. Ryznar and Hunter Stair have finally entered Prime Time, and they've done it Batman style, straight through the skylight. Pilots that debut at #1 tend not to fizzle quickly; could Yacht Rock be a new House of C**bys?
Listening to Yacht Rock on Sirius/XM I ran across this Holmes track. The modern day image of him makes me wonder that he ever could have been a musician, much less the one who spawned the hit
Escape (The Pina Colada Song). The cover image of his album also makes me wonder what kind of influence the album can only have had on the movie Flashdance? Are these really the photo of the same man?
