OMG! The Pina Colada song is a truly awful song! Thanks for reminding me...I thinkThe lyrics are stupid, the melody grates on me but the worst thing is the concept. Two people in a supposedly committed relationship get bored so they both take out personal ads looking for other people. They each find a new potential partner, only to discover they have been writing to each other, and when they find out, both are fine with the betrayal and laugh about it. HUH???

LOL! Jimmy BuffetI was tired of my lady, we'd 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 lady 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.You're the love that I've looked for, come with me, and escape

Actually " The Pina Colada Song" was originally performed by Rupert Holmes. Buffet just made the highly questionable choice of covering it I believe. Holmes also did another craptacular single. "Him".

The only version of the Pina Colada song I ever heard was Rupert Holes. Horrific to think that TWO people released it as a single. ughhhhhhhI prefer "Him" to the Pina Colada song any day, but Never knew one song could have the word HIM in it so many times.Who sang Short People? I think that was another horrific song.
