Marina Madness: God Gave Yacht Rock To You.......1

So, Yacht Rock...... The addled, MOR dribblings of talent free hacks and dubious has-beens? Or is it the music of the angels, the song of the common man,the smooth sailin' sound, the only sound that matters? A bit of both and neither of the above if the truth be told. I won't lie, this Youtube series, not to mention the occasional slice of forbidden fruit over at Cocktails & Records, is the inspiration behind this particular assault on the senses. Enjoy! (or not, as the case may be......) Kicking us off are the Doobie Brothers with the Michael McDonald song 'What A Fool Believes' Smooth Sailin' Folks!

Ooh, I've loved that song since I first discovered it on my parent's Readers Digest box set of the hits of the 70s.

And I like it even more now I've seen that clip. Such impressive hair, such bad taste in clothes. And check the guitar player who is sitting down slouching! Brilliant.

Anyway, where was I?

Ah yes.....

Cocktails - The slouching guitarist looks for all the world like Boris Becker of Steeleye Dan fame ;D. I like McDonald's falsetto, but it's the even higher backing harmonies on the chorus and that key change hook that make the song.

PM - I believe I've had the pleasure. I think I have them 'collected' on Myspace.
