Monday’s Music Moves Me: Yacht Rock Randomness

I was stuck for something to do today, so I found The Ultimate Yacht Rock playlist and figured I’d grab a bunch of songs from there, but didn’t know how to pick them. Looking at the list, I noticed there were a few videos that had been removed since the list was created, and that they were randomly sprinkled throughout the playlist, so I just went through and grabbed the next video anytime I saw one. After picking and choosing, I removed a couple of the videos to bring this list down to 12. I’m jut going to list the songs after this and leave my usual blather out. Enjoy!

  1. Utopia, “Love Is The Answer”

  2. Fleetwood Mac, “Dreams”

  3. Kenny Loggins, “This Is It”

  4. Blues Image, “Ride Captain Ride”

  5. The Alan Parsons Project, “Eye In The Sky”

  6. The Doobie Brothers, “Takin’ It To The Streets”

  7. The Bee Gees, “Subway”

  8. Jackson Browne, “Somebody’s Baby”

  9. Con Funk Shun, “Secrets”

  10. Pablo Cruise, “Love Will Find A Way”

  11. Neil Sedaka with Dara Sedaka, “Should’ve Never Let You Go”

  12. James Ingram and Michael McDonald, “Yah Mo Be There”

And that’s Monday’s Music Moves Me for May 4, 2020.

Monday’s Music Moves Me is sponsored by X-Mas Dolly, Callie, Cathy, Alana, and Stacy, so be sure and visit them, where you can also find the Linky for the other participants.

  1. Had to listen to this on another device and came back to my computer for the comment. Enjoyed this set. The Neil Sadaka duet with his daughter was loe at first hear – she has such a good voice. I don’t remember this being a hit! I do remember most of the other ones. Some would be perfect choices (Yah Mo Be There?) for my yacht, and speaking of my yacht…darn, I don’t have one.


  2. John,

    Great playlist to get Monday started off. I’ve listened to SiriusXM’s Yacht Rock station and often wondered what on earth does this mean. Can you explain? Thanks for sharing the dance floor with the 4M crew today and stay well, dear friend!


  3. I didn’t know what Yacht Rock was until we cut our cable TV and explored new channels to watch. We found a great music channel (don’t know the name of it), which plays various genres of music. That’s when I was introduced to Yacht Music (soft rock).


  4. So, maybe sounding stupid, were these songs famous for being played on yachts? Yes, I feel dumb asking but..still asking. Some of these bring back memories.


    1. No reason to feel stupid for asking, and you’re close: as I told Cathy a couple of minutes ago, “Yacht Rock” is light rock of the sort you might play on your yacht (if you had one). Light rock, or as I usually put it, “lite rawk!”
