Yacht Rock Wednesday: Hold On to the Nights

leave a comment »

A little explanation is in order…

I’ve heard Richard Marx described as Yacht Rock, but I’m not sure that he fits. A little to late, maybe? I’ve decided to include him in the playlist anyway – for two reasons, neither of which are related to Yacht Rock.

Richard Marx receives YACHT ROCK POINTS for:

  1. that sweet mullet (which is especially awesome in the video below)
  2. being my favorite tweeting celebrity (weird, I know)

Yacht Rock Wednesday: Maneater

Sorry for missing out on a couple of these. I’ve been too busy with diapers for the last few weeks… Oh, and Percocet for awhile there, but I’m somewhat out of the fog now, and ready to listen to the smooth sounds of Hall & Oates with my little girl (who hopefully will not grow up to be like the subject of this song).

Yacht Rock Wednesday: Sailing

Because I can’t leave it out.

Side note: Yacht Rock reminds me of my grandfather’s car – both because everything he ever drove was the size of a yacht, and because he always had some light rock ballad radio station on that exclusively played songs just like this one.

Yacht Rock Wednesday: If This Is It

leave a comment »

I don’t know if it counts as Yacht Rock or not, but I would play “If This Is It” on my yacht.

I would be a total failure if I didn’t include this. NSFW, obviously.

Oops. I forgot about this last week, but I was really busy (working on my yacht). Enjoy!
