Tastemakers At Work
Baby, I'm-a want you.
No, too girly. I'm going to put it out there that there are no sad songs in Yacht Rock - bittersweet, but not sad. You don't wanna harsh your mellow, out there on the boat! Prove me wrong.
I'm sorry, what is a Yacht Rock song again? It's manly, not girly? Bittersweet, not sad? "Down On My Knees" by Bread (as I recall from my childhood, at least) seemed not girly, but "Diary" still rips my heart out.
uh HELLOOOO ! Mother Freedom is the rockingest song of all rockin' time. Yachters dig it. I heard Jackie-O liked to crank 'er up right before the 3 o'clock serving of gazpacho and lemon drops
Touche'. I've been schooled - I'd never heard either song before!
This interview is fantastic. Quincy is the man! https://www.gq.com/story/quincy-jones-has-a-story
