Yacht Rock??????????? confuse whofarted Had to google that, coined in 2005 (like 25 years after the fact) by the makers of the online video series Yacht Rock, was derived from its association with the popular Southern Californian leisure activity of sailing. Call it what most of the public has been calling it since like day one, Soft Rock.

There was no such thing as "boy band" either. I first heard that around the time of Backstreet Boys/*NSync. Before that they were called "vocal groups". In the case of vocal groups targeted towards teenage girls: "teen idols", "teenybopper", or "bubblegum". The Jackson 5 & The Sylvers were called "bubblegum soul". I've seen some article in recent years where The Temptations & The Spinners are called boy bands and I've seen The Beatles called the "first boy band". At least the Fab 4 were a band. razz

You can take a black guy to Nashville from right out of the cotton fields with bib overalls, and they will call him R&B. You can take a white guy in a pin-stripe suit who’s never seen a cotton field, and they will call him country. ~ O. B. McClinton

Not sure but I might of heard that term "Boy Band" when New Kids on the block came out or maybe not, been awhile.

I don't agree with that

Yeah, nothing's more popular than bands that sound like law firms.

I love this song! I believe it's on K-Tel's Soundwaves.

Also, thought about this one. It was their biggest hit, but only hit #20 in the US. They worked more as songwriters. One of the brothers died in 1984, and the other lives in Buenos Aires.

I hear this every once in awhile on the local soul oldies station. I have the record myself though. The station plays a lot of stuff that I don't hear anywhere else like Barbara Mason & Willie Hutch. I just looked it up on Youtube, the music video has 21 million views. Then there's an audio only video with 11 million. The Raven-Symone remake has 4 million. So I guess it's not forgotten. Maybe it's in a GTA game.

Come to think of it I do hear it on old school rap/dance radio stations but not on 70's/80's radio stations

Never heard Addrissi Brothers. Checked them out on youtube, kinda has that tropical sound like Elton John's Island Girl.

This song was in Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2. Since Marvel movies are so popular today all over the world, I guess a lot of people heard it. razz

True but my thread is about forgotten songs not being played on the Radio anymore.
