Most are unaware of the roots of insurgency. It didn't start on battlefields or in the lines of radical texts.
It started when Michael McDonald infiltrated the Yacht rock genre with seemingly innocuous, but inescapably harmonized backing lyrics.

Sat in a packed house listening to some awesome yacht-rock performed by these fine humans last night. You'd think "Camelot Lounge" would be some King Arthur theme. Nope. It's a lot of camels. #livemusic #yachtrock

What's your favorite "yacht rock" song?
I like "Southern Cross" by Crosby, Stills, and Nash.
The acoustic guitar with the accompanying bass line is so warm.
Some Steely Dan songs up there, too, like "Hey Nineteen".

@JamesWNeal I've never heard them mentioned as such either, but it just struck me how blatantly yacht-sounding they were, and I can't think of an earlier example. I'm calling it: #YachtRock started with #Bread.

@fc not sure about the "birth." Never heard Bread mentioned in that respect. But it's not like I'm a #YachtRock expert.

@JamesWNeal It occurs to me - could this be considered the birth of #YachtRock?

I'm no hardcore DanFan, but I do have Aja on both CD -and- #vinyl and I enjoy the Dan banter.

Ep 3 of the #1619Project covers the birth of American music and it's a mindblower. The intro talks about the Black roots of yacht rock. If possible the episode deepened my appreciation of #SteelyDan who featured several legendary Black musicians. Bassist #ChuckRainey plays on classic SD tracks, from Home at Last to Kid Charlemagne & Bad Sneakers--described by #DonaldFagen as a #NewYork song. Love Rainey's playing.

Yes, I listen to #yachtrock just to have some noise in the background while I focus on my work. I grew up on the stuff (along with other genres from the 60s, 70s, and 80s). Don't @ me.

Chillin with some #YachtRock from Soma FM. I bought their #ios app; it's easier on this tiny tablet.

Hello it's #bandcampfriday ! That means 100% of any money you spend on Bandcamp today goes directly to the artist.

This Friday I'm highlighting my #Ysides mix "South Pacific"—an hour of #southernrock #yachtrock featuring #dollyparton, #ronniemilsap and other greats.

Free to listen, pay-what-you-want to own.

And of course, I have merch, mixes, and edits available too!

My mix series is called #YSides.

Y Sides 1 is weird and forgotten #yachtrock, recorded direct to cassette:

Y Sides 2 is covers and less-known original versions of yacht hits:

Hi! I'm Alex. I use he/him or they/them pronouns. I'm in my early 30s. You might know me as @alex or for the @yachtbot bot.

I also run the 24/7 #70smusic #80smusic internet radio station @fm.

I've created this open-follow account to promote my DJ and merch-designing gig as Dads FM.

Sorry for the upcoming hashtag dump here...

I'm a #dj/#vinyldj who plays and collects #aor #westcoast #softrock #citypop #jpop #yachtrock #vinylrecords and #45s using a #rotarymixer. I also use #serato from time to time.

I have occasional #livemusic gigs around the #massachusetts #newhampshire #newengland area that I will post about here.

I also design and sell my own merch; some designs for sale on my #bandcamp (link in bio) are shown in two of the attached pictures.

I upload rips of rare records to my youtube channel (search "dads fm" there).

Follow me here if you like smooth music and pictures of any two people together with the caption #steelydan.

most people know "steal away," probably the most shameless "what a fool believes" ripoff ever to crack the top 10, but all of robbie dupree's 1980 self-titled debut is extremely yachty.

michael boddicker provides synths, bill labounty backing vocals. excellent rainy morning #yachtrock #nowplaying

hell yeah

keep the fire, from 1979, is a little country-tinged; kenny pretty much always stayed firmly on the rock side of yacht rock.

three tracks are certified yacht, including the indelible "this is it"; the opening track "love has come of age" (one of my favorites) just missed the boat at a 47.25 on the yachstki scale.

one record i'm really excited about in this shipment is the 1979 self-titled solo debut from leah kunkel—i've been listening to it on spotify and it's unreal.

leah is mama cass's little sister; she married legendary soft-rock studio drummer russ kunkel (james taylor, carly simon, stevie nicks), who produced this record.

steve lukather is all over this, too. #yachtrock
