There is nothing more we love here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite…

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.

  1. PERSONAL COLUMN:

    If you like pina coladas
    And gettin’ caught in the rain
    If your not into yoga
    If you have half a brain
    If you like making love at midnight
    In the dunes on the cape
    I’m the love that you’ve looked for
    Write to me and escape

  2. “You’ll see one kid twirling in the driveway singing “Jingle Bells” and another peeing in the bushes.”

    – me giving directions to my house!
