Retro Saturday: Rupert Holmes

We're on a soft rock vibe tonight eh!!!

OK so everyone of a certain age may (or may not) admit to remembering "Escape (The Pina Colada Song", the one about liking pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. I tried a pina colada once, wasn't impressed...anyway I digress, my favourite Rupert Holmes song was "Him" which is a kind of revenge song about a guy discovering that his girl has been cheating on him. This is from about 1980, if I remember correctly, the big shades and facial hair give it away. Find "Him" at

I remember that I borrowed his "Partners In Crime" album from the local library, I liked the title track but no-one seems to have that one :(
