Inspired by the original Yacht Rock web series created by JD Ryznar, which features AllMusic Critic Hollywood Steve chronicling the exploits of various smooth music groups and their contemporaries in the 70s and 80s including (The Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, antagonists Hall & Oates, Loggins & Messina)—and focused particularly on Michael McDonald's prolific work appearing on many different recordings, and his quest to create the smoothest music possible while facing the trials and tribulations of pressure to become a rocker from Kenny Loggins, intimidation from Hall & Oates, and the untimely demise of his friend and smooth music producer, Koko.

Great list, Braden!

 

I made one that was strictly Canadian and called it "Canoe Rock"!  Would love to get your ears on it and if there's anything you want to add into yours, great!
