I'm sorry…George Benson and Earth, Wind & Fire are not 'yacht rock'. I don't care what wikipedia or anybody says.

Yacht rock radio on Sirius xm has played their songs “Breezin’” & “After The Love Is Gone”. These soft rock / pop / jazz / whatever songs have been curated for yacht rock whether we like it or not. 
 

I always think of Christopher Cross, Kenny Loggins, Little River Band and Pablo Cruise as prime examples, but more are getting lumped in to this category.

Bingo.

Just another example of how today's culture is ruining music. Just like how "classic rock radio" turned into garbage.

Don't get me started on classic rock radio. The other day, I turned it on and there was The Beastie Boys.

Like, how more fucked up can it get
