if you have children* and are interested in moving to/creating an alt on a trans-inclusive, chill, and respectful #hometown instance (that’s a fork of mastodon with local-only posting and a few other choice customizations), check out https://dads.cool or https://cooler.mom! Three years running, active moderation, pleasant people. Feel free to DM or @ me. Boosts welcome.

Really getting tired of Christian yacht rock, there is so much of it and yes, it sounds “right” for the era and style but it’s all soul saving and no soul
ken soto gave himself sole songwriting credit lol
been listening to more citypop to add to the @fm catalog and this is song is an absolutely shameless ripoff of Home At Last by Steely Dan (especially the beginning and end). I am actually astounded Becker and Fagen don't get songwriting credits. I think if DF heard this there'd be a court case https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8FcDA-6tsk
richard marx is one of those guys who would absolutely have been one of the main yacht rock guys if he was like 5 years older
i have already transcribed the lyrics
all the digital synth stuff (lead, bass, bells)
clean rhythm guitar
a guitar solo before the last chorus and fadeout
my friends on the yacht rock discord brought this song to my attention which is a song that is only ever heard diagetically in the kevin costner vehicle No Way Out and was never released, it is too late to be yacht rock, the production and instrumentation are all wrong, but the song ITSELF is undoubtedly and extremely yachty and i am working myself up to recording my own cover that restores its rightful vibes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hf-eW_5_Q_o
i am here to post about expensive production, smooth grooves, and dark, sarcastic lyrics
