It is not very often we get a dedication here on Bear Music but it has happened today – maybe this will open the floodgates? A certain gentleman has asked that we feature this song for a certain lady he knows and apparently we don’t have to mention any names because she will know who she is
“Escape (The Piña Colada Song)” is a song written and recorded by Rupert Holmes for his album Partners in Crime. The song speaks, in three verses and three choruses, of a man who is bored with his marriage because it has become routine and he desires some variety. One night, he reads the personal column in his local newspaper and spots an advert that catches his attention: a woman who is seeking a man who, among other little things, must like piña coladas. Intrigued, he takes out an advert in reply and arranges to meet the woman “at a bar called O’Malley’s”, only to find upon the meeting that the woman is actually his current partner.
The song ends on an upbeat note, showing that the two lovers realize they have more in common than they had suspected, and that they do not have to look any further than each other for what they seek in a relationship…
Don’t forget, if you have any music videos you would like us to feature in the future, drop us a line. We are always happy to listen to requests from others, we cannot promise to feature any but we will try our best to find the videos if we think others will enjoy.
