Ride like the wind #2

February 7th, 2009

Hey folks,

Do you recall the yacht rock episode “rosanna” where a horny member of Toto attempts to convince Michael McDonald to help make a song so that he would attain root chakra(sp?) allignment? (To refresh your memory watch this)

If so, my posting of the video below will make some sense. Either way, enjoy it while it is still up.

Holy Shit an 11th Episode!! Jimmy Buffett kidnaps and tricks Kenny Loggins into writing a hit single for the movie Footloose, while Michael McDonald and James Ingram help cut him loose with a bunch of machetes. “It’s mellow, not smooth… kinda shitty.”

Yah Mo B There.

Fuck you Cetera! Episode 2

July 21st, 2006

Can’t pump out smooth music without paying homage to Yacht Rock– “Hall and Oates go toe to toe with McDonald and Loggins in a back alley contest, with tragic results.”

Michael McDonald’s husky, smooth-ful baritone appeared on damn-near EVERY smooth album of the late 70s, early 80s. He was so ubiquitous that Saturday Night Live made a skit of him rushing panic-madly from one high-profile recording session to the next.

The epitome of smooth was reached when Michael fronted the Doobies. I love this song so much, I squeal with delight every time it plays:
