Weekend Self-Care: Yacht Rock Fever!
As per LL’s request, we kick off the weekend with the sounds of yacht rock, a commercially successful genre of soft rock that hit it big on the west coast from the mid-70s to early-80s. Originally referred to as adult-oriented rock or West Coast Sound, the term “yacht rock” was actually a pejorative term coined by a DJ in 2005 claiming the music was only pertinent to yuppies sailing on their yachts. Many of the early music videos do have a nautical theme, and the genre itself is being seen as kicked off through Christopher Cross’ “Sailing” which was released in 1979. With that Wikipedia introduction in mind, we present to you our Yacht Rock self-care open thread. As always, take care of yourselves and your loved ones this weekend.
