YACHT ROCK

VA - Sailing, 75 Yacht Rock Favorites CD1+CD2+CD3 (A Butterboy Compilation)


Yacht rock (originally known as the West Coast Sound or adult-oriented rock is a broad music style and aesthetic identified with soft rock. The term "yacht rock" did not exist while the genre was active, from about 1975 to 1984.  It was one of the commercially successful genres of its era. It became known as Yacht Rock in 2005, when the term was coined in J. D. Ryznar et al's online video series of the same name. Understood as a pejorative term, Yacht Rock referred, in part, to a stereotypical yuppie yacht owner enjoying smooth music while sailing. Many yacht rockers included nautical references in their lyrics  

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. Its name, coined in 2005 by the makers of the online video series Yacht Rock, was derived from its association with the popular Southern Californian leisure activity of sailing. (Wikipedia)


Here are 75 Yacht Rock songs that live up to that sound. Enjoy!
