Yacht Rock on The Family Guy
Posted by: vision63

I just read the Wikipedia page about Yacht Rock, because "The Family Guy" did an episode on it and attended a cruise themed as such.

That's interesting. I see the channel on Sirius XM and it's a lot of soft rock etc. It's really clever how determined people can take a dusty old product, figure out a new way to market it and squeeze money out of it. I need to do that with something.

Apple Music has a good Yacht Rock playlist that I put on from time to time. A few of the audio channels I stream (Rocktunes, etc.) also have channels dedicated to it.

Wikipedia has a good rundown: [en.wikipedia.org]

And here's one view of the ultimate Yacht Rock song list: [www.yachtornyacht.com]



(BTW, it's spelled < y'all >.)

Duuuuude!!! Yacht Rock Radio on Sirius XM is my #1 favorite! (Really, it is!)

I love the mellow, peaceful, "love is the answer, but it almost inevitably leads to heartbreak" music. I am a child of the 70s, so perhaps it was the subliminal soundtrack to my youth, but like the song says, "moonlight.....feels right!"

I'm listening to it now!

I find it just slightly irritating that they seem to generally consider Steely Dan to be “yacht rock”.

For one, the group is famously named after a steam-powered...ummm. Phorum will block it anyway - use your imagination.

...and putting that awesome, unique jazz fusion together with “Moonlight...feels right”?

Heresy!

There appears to be al lot of exceptions.
