Escape

I swear this song is probably a top 5 song that is stuck in my head at least once a week. I dont have much of a story to go here other than the fact that I listen to a lot of “oldies” music. People are often surprised at what songs I know since I am only 28 years old. I suppose I could blame my grandpa for constantly listening to 99.9KGOR when I was little (which is basically the only channel I listen to now).

This one is pretty well known, as it should be with how catchy it is. Though, the message of the song makes me shake my head, it is still a good song. This song is called Escape by Rupert Holmes.

Lyrics

I was tired of my lady, we been together too long
Like a worn-out recording, of a favorite song
So while she lay there sleeping, I read the paper in bed
And in the personals column, there was this letter I read

“If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain
If you’re not into yoga, if you have half a brain
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape
I´m the love that you´ve looked for, write to me, and escape”

I didn´t think about my lady, I know that sounds kind of mean
But me and my old lady, had fallen into the same old dull routine
So I wrote to the paper, took out a personal ad
And though I´m nobody´s poet, I thought it wasn´t half bad

“Yes, I like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain
I´m not much into health food, I am into champagne
I´ve got to meet you by tomorrow noon, and cut through all this red tape
At a bar called O’Malley’s, where we´ll plan our escape”

So I waited with high hopes, then she walked in the place
I knew her smile in an instant, I knew the curve of her face
It was my own lovely lady, and she said, “Oh, it´s you”
And we laughed for a moment, and I said, “I never knew”

“That you liked Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain
And the feel of the ocean, and the taste of champagne
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape
You´re the love that I´ve looked for, come with me, and escape”

“If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain
If you´re not into yoga, if you have half a brain
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape
I’m the love that you’ve looked for, come with me, and escape”

  1. Who doesn’t know the pina coladas and caught in the rain bit, but I’d never actually paid attention to the rest of the lyrics and had no idea what the actual name of the song was. Catchiness will suck you in every time though!
