My money's on 'Escape ('The Pina Colada Song') by Rupert Holmes. Hey remember when drinking Pina Coladas was considered sophisticated?!

Escape peaked on December 22nd of 1979. I agree with Pete on this song.

Incidentally at the other end of the decade at the very beginning of 1970, a song peaked at #36 that Rupert Holmes was largely responsible for. No pina coladas in it. Name the song and the group.

Street People - Jennifer Tomkins.
