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.

Today struck me as a yacht rock day. Then I figured that every Wednesday should be a yacht rock day – if I really wanted my life to mean something. So…
