On Yacht Rock

(this post written by Naomi)

While Nate's been worrying about outfitting the boat, for me, embracing the life of a sailor means embracing Yacht Rock.

The operative adjective defining yacht rock is "smooth". Whether smooth vocal stylings, smooth music, or smooth image you will find smooth-ness is all pervasive when it comes to yacht rock.

With that in mind, here is my top 11 list:
  • "Biggest Part of Me, Ambrosia
  • "Feels so good", Chuck Magione
  • "Peg", Steely Dan
  • "Steal Away", Robbie Dupree
  • "I Keep Forgettin'", Michael McDonald (no Yacht Rock list would be complete sans MMcD)
  • "Ride Like the Wind", Christopher Cross
  • "On and On", Stephen Bishop
  • "Africa", Toto
  • "What a Fool Believes", Doobie Brothers
  • "Caribean Queen (No More Love on the Run)", Billy Ocean
  • "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)", Hall and Oates
