Rockin' with Yacht Rock

Via the Poor Man Institute, I've become acquainted with a new musical term, Yacht Rock. Referring mainly to the late '70s, early '80s domination of the charts by such groups as the 'Doobie Brothers' and 'Loggins and Messina' with their smooth sound and frequent use of sailing imagery, this article explains how YR is relating to yesterday's and today's kids via YouTube.
As a public service, here is a dramatic representation of its defining episodes, I recommend you check it out:
