Unpopular Opinion: The Piña Colada Song

Escape (The Piña Colada Song) bothers me.

Song Synopsis: The relationship of the couple in the song has become boring and they decide to put out personal ads to find something better. And they find out that they were talking to one another via the personals. They think this is so cool and find out that they didn’t know much about one another.

  1. They put these ads out while still in this relationship. There is no mention that they know that they’re seeking a new relationship or that they’re in an open relationship, so that makes them liars and wannabe cheaters.
  2. They have a lot of things that they don’t know about each other. Clearly they have communication issues. I don’t know if it’s that they just don’t tell one another stuff or that they don’t trust the other person. If they’re willing to cheat on their SO and to be cool with having the other person cheat on them, then I would think that it’s the lack of trust.
