Michael McDonald Spoke to Me today...through his music

Hey! Have you peeped the web series "Yacht Rock" yet? No? Well, everybody in my small world has been giving me shit for not watching every low-budge, high impact episode. So today I decided to check it out...something good/problem happened.

I'm writing this post from a wifi connection at a Bruegger's Bagels in West Omaha. Why am I here? I don't know - the coffee is horrible and the bagels are... well... they're freakin' Bagels - you'd have to be a neophyte of mankind to jack up a Bagel too bad.

Anywho, I decided to watch the 1st episode of "Yacht Rock" a minute ago - the series that delves deeply into the stories behind the smooth groove music popularized in the late eighties by such glorious musicians as Loggins & Messina, Hall & Oats, Michael McDonald and many, many more.

The 1st episode tells the story behind Michael McDonald's impetus for his masterpiece "What a Fool Believes." The minute I peeled my eyes from the episode my brain nearly exploded due to the fact that "What a Fool Believes" began to play on the Bruegger's Bagel Sound System. No joke.

It all makes sense now.

I've always wondered if that song was about Kenny Loggins being a full-on Summer's Eve type. Thanks, Hollywood Steve!

Not to split gray hairs, but those folks were most potent -- in their mild-mannered way -- in the late '70s, not the late '80s. Some of us innertubers are old enough to remember the atrocities.
