Someone turned me on to the series, which I missed and this podcast, which is really enjoyable and kind of informative:

Here's the series episode explaining how Warren G came up with Regulate and this is funnier than 99 percent of TV comedy with no budget:

Funny thing about yacht rock is that it actually holds up better than all the stuff critics loved 35 years ago.

In the world of Yacht Rock, Michael McDonald who worked with everybody is the center of the universe and I have no problem with that.

BYR podcast has other genres they've invented such as DivorceCore and TryandRaps. These guys are funnier that most of what's on TV.

CSNs 1977 album is very yacht rock (even the cover art), even though CSNY were Laurel Canyon. I guess it's pretty hard in your late thirties to write about girls and rebellion when you have 20 mill in the bank. In that sense, yacht rock is more honest than most mature rock.

update:

On second thought I probably bought into their false image of hippies in the canyon. They were probably more yacht than anyone:

My smooth grooves will one day make it to number two...

Koko's ghost rules...

Koko's ghost had the only unified field theory that ever made sense...which is that the universe was created so that Michael McDonald could write Sweet Freedom for a Gregory Hines movie in 1986. They could have saved the money on the Hadron collider.
