I had my friend over to enjoy these after a very long and stressful week. Of course knowing me and the power of association in between just about anything and music, chances are I’ll find a corresponding song. Good thing that there’s a popular piña colada (a.k.a. Escape) song by Rupert Holmes himself. So my friend stops me and asks me if I knew what the song is about and with all of the confidence I thought I had I answered, “Well duh! It’s about piña coladas.”
Surprisingly I was wrong and she had read an entire article about it. It’s about a married man who is looking to get into some Tom Foolery with another woman, looks up an ad in the personal ads section. So he answers to add that begins, “If you like piña coladas, and getting caught in the rain…” And so on and so forth. So he shows up to meet this “other woman” and discovers it’s his wife. They didn’t realize they had so many fun things to enjoy about one another in their years together and rekindle their fire. A great ending to an almost big mistake, right? Music is so bizarre and interesting because likely, everyone including myself has been singing that song and thinking it’s about piña coladas. So there you go, a bit of useless knowledge…but it won’t stop you or me from singing the song or enjoying these creamy piña coladas.
