Yacht Rock Radio is back

Buddy of mine is in this band.  They all do this full time and actually have people that follow them around on their tours.  Based in Atlanta, but play all along the Atlantic coast.   They make a TON of money doing private parties.  One company paid for them to play a party in Costa Rica recently.    A few times a year, they do these huge revival shows and have the original singers play with them.  People like Walter Egan, Nick Gilder,  Peter Becket, Jeff Carlise, etc.

Wife and I attended a lavish wedding in Dallas for a good friend's daughter a few summers ago. The party band was awesome...studio quality musicians, singers, back up singers...sumbisches could nail any song you could think of. I'm talking Broadway showmanship...and their fee was commensurate.

Yacht Rock is back. Brisket is happy. Last night, Brisket sang ‚Äúthe sailors say Brandy, you‚Äôre a fine girl, what a GOOD WIFE you would be!‚ÄĚ loudly, in the car, annoying the kids. It was awesome. I was awesome. Brandy was awesome.

But my life, my lover, my lady..is the sea.

Always felt like this lyric 

Brandy wears a braided chain
Made of finest silver from the North of Spain
A locket that bears the name
Of the man that Brandy loved

And this lyric

So I'm sailing for tomorrow, my dreams are a dyin'
And my love is an anchor tied to you, tied with a silver chain

are related.

I always thought Atlanta Rhythm Section just enjoyed doing Classic IV songs. Then I found out some ARS's members were previously in Classics IV. Explains a lot.

I won't link it, because it isn't yacht rock, but "Large Time" is a serious jam, and it's their own.

I saw ARS once -- in Chicago at Navy Pier.  My Dad and I were checking out colleges in the area, and we found out about Summerfest (or whatever it was called).  Only rock concert my pop ever saw.  I think he actually liked it.

Jesus, 3 pages and none of one of the GOAT Yacht music bands. Take one and pass it down. 

 

Maybe one of their worst songs.  H&O are one of those bands with great songs and absolutely awful ones.

 

A great one.

This song makes me want to jab an ice pick into my ears.

 

Jesus that's bad. I made it about 50 seconds. 

I fucking hate "Your kiss" or whatever it's called as well. Int you dislike Private Eyes - but I'm a child of the 90s so I tend to be way less burnt out on a lot of 80s music and that style/aesthetic in general.
