Song of the Day: Rupert Holmes, “Him”

Occasionally I’ll remember a singer and realize that I only know one song of theirs, and go out looking for more. Such is the case with Rupert Holmes, whose 1979 song “Escape (The Piña Colada Song)” was a #1 hit for him in 1979. Somehow I missed his followup to that song, 1980’s “Him.” It reached #6 on the Hot 100 and #4 on the Adult Contemporary chart, and as much fun as “Escape” was, this, to me, provokes a more emotional response.

      1. My sister was a top 40 person and usually bad top 40 but this one I liked. Like I said I probably haven’t heard it since then.
