Music Monday - Yacht Rock
I will admit - it wasn't until last year when I took a Peloton class that I learned what Yacht Rock was. For those that don't know what Yacht Rock is, Wikipedia defines it as "Yacht rock (originally known as the West Coast sound or adult-oriented rock) is a broad music style and aesthetic commonly associated with soft rock, one of the most commercially successful genres from the mid-1970s to early 1980s. Drawing on sources such as smooth soul, smooth jazz, R&B, funk, and disco, common stylistic traits include high-quality production, clean vocals, and a focus on light, catchy melodies." I believe the reason I connected with this music is that I grew up with this music. It brought back memories of family vacations, dinners on my parent's patio, or just listening to music while doing stuff around the house. There are plenty of albums and playlists out there for Yacht Rock - but I wanted to curate a list of some of my favorite Yacht Rock songs. I hope you enjoy the playlist!
