Why the hate people? This sing is OK. Not Light My Fire but certainly pleasing.

About this topic


"Escape", later known as "Escape (The Piña Colada Song)", was the highest-charting hit for Rupert Holmes, released off his album Partners in Crime. The song was also number one at the end of the 1970s and at the beginning of the 1980s. To this day, Holmes regards the song with a mixture of pride and chagrin; while it has made him wealthy and famous, as one of his friends described it, it is "the success that ruined his career",[citation needed] drawing too much attention from his more serious musical works.
