Top 10 Yacht Rock Songs

So in Part 2 we have Randy’s Top 10 favorite ‘Yacht Rock’ songs of all-time, whereas Dan will come up with ‘Examples’ of his larger, overarching point. Often to hilarious effect.

I dare you to listen to this episode and at least not crack a smile. It had me belly-laughing throughout. And as Yacht Rock avatar Ron Burgundy, the ‘Anchorman’ himself, might say “You’re Welcome”

OK Computer – Part Two

OK Computer – Part Two: On May 21st, 1997 Radiohead’s third album, ‘OK Computer’ was released worldwide to nearly unanimous critical acclaim. Inspired, but beyond, their influences such as The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Phil Spector and even Miles Davis, the record was an instant classic that has since been recognized by the Library of Congress by its inclusion in the National Recording Registry.

OK Computer – Part One

OK Computer – Part One: From the D.J. Shadow-inspired ‘Airbag’ through the understated closer ‘The Tourist’, it’s an album that is incredible on a song-by-song basis, but as a piece of art is unimpeachable its greatness.

For Dan and Randy this is an album both consider one of their favorites. We wanted to do something special for our 50th episode and decided months ago that we’d use ‘OK Computer’ for the milestone podcast. As you’ll hear by listening this is a record that awed and amazed us from the very first listen and has been doing so for the last 18 years. It’s nothing short of a miracle that this album was made by the band that made it. And the world was all the more enriched for it.
