    Well, this is interesting at least to me. I just discovered Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham wrote the original song that Steven Stills turned into “Southern Cross”.

    My personal fave:



    Kid Creole (not his real name, duh) lives n Europe somewhere and they do shows over there but kind of rarely.

    ^ My wife loves that one, too, because it used to be on one of the tapes they played in a store she worked at in high school. Certainly a unique artist.

    Heard this for the first time today. Really cool mid90s-ish lo-fi vibe to it

    They played the big club in DC where I used to work, I had never heard of them but it was probably the most fun night I ever had there, it was just infectious.

    KC&TC were on steady rotation at the Stinky House in Wallingford circa 1983.

    Got out of town on a boat
    Goin to southern I-uh-land
    Sailing on my yacht
    Before a following sea

    She was making for the trades
    On the outside
    For a downhill run
    To pompous-me bay

    Off the wind on this heading
    Lie the marquesas
    We got 80 feet on the waterline
    Because it’s a big ass yacht

    From a noisy bar in Avalon
    I tried to call you
    But on a midnight watch
    I realized you don’t even have a yacht

    Think about
    Think about how many times I have fAaaaalen
    But never so far that I had to sell the yaaaaacht
    The fact that I have a yacht
    Cannot be forgotten

    I have beeeeen arooooind the world
    Sailing on my awesome yacht
    And it sails pretty good
    And you know it will

    When you see the southern cross for the first time
    You understand now
    Why you bought an awesome yacht
    Cuz the boat that you have
    Is so small
    But my yacht is so big
    Big enough to sail awaaaay

    So I’m sailing for tomorrow
    My dreams are a dying
    Except for the dream
    About having an awesome yacht
    I have my yacht and all
    Her flags are a flyin
    A 3 million dollar yacht
    Is all I have to my name

    Think about all the times
    I have fallen
    But never so far
    That I had to sell the yacht
    I’m in a yacht club
    This cannot be forgotten

    I have been aroooound the world
    Sailing my awesome yacht
    If your girl leaves you
    Just sail to Tahiti like me
    And I know you will

    So we cheated and we lied
    And we tested
    But I never failed to sail
    It was the easiest thing to do
    You will survive not
    Having a yacht
    Being on this yacht is a good
    Way to forget about you
    And to see the southern cross

    Check out how fucking serious he is in his red sailing cap. Sailing in 3 knot winds must be some serious fucking business. My favorite is the dim lit serious singing tho. So serious.

    I still had to listen all the way. Good song lol.

    The story I read was after one of his divorces, his friends talked him into going sailing down to the South Pacific. The song lyrics are basically about that trip.

    Every divorce should come with a cool yacht cruise. But yeah I heard that too.

    “It’s like a metaphor for life, man”

    “No, it’s a song about my yacht cruise.”

    Well, if you don’t like songs about sailing, how do you feel about airplanes?

    I was looking for a different version of this video that featured a P51 Mustang, but couldn’t find it. Had to settle for this one with F4U Corsairs (which happens to be the plane my dad flew in WWII).
