Oh, It's You!

I always thought the Pina Colada song was hard to believe. The couple ended up being too forgiving at the end. Here is the story of the Rupert Holmes hit song in real life.

Sana Klaric and husband Adnan, who used the names "Sweetie" and "Prince of Joy" in an online chatroom, spent hours telling each other about their marriage troubles, reported.

The truth emerged when the two turned up for a date. Now the pair, from Zenica in central Bosnia, are divorcing after accusing each other of being unfaithful.

"I was suddenly in love. It was amazing. We seemed to be stuck in the same kind of miserable marriage. How right that turned out to be," Sana, 27, said.

Adnan, 32, said: "I still find it hard to believe that Sweetie, who wrote such wonderful things, is actually the same woman I married and who has not said a nice word to me for years".

  1. I just want to state for the record that I have always hated the Pina Colada song.

  2. I also hated the Pina Colada song--the worst piece of '70s drivel I know.

    It was full of the cheap "Love Boat" romance and disposable relationships that characterized that entire decade--the decade of my teens. It's a wonder any of us that came of age then managed to learn anything about real love and commitment. Sheesh!

  3. The worst piece of '70s drivel I know.

    Wow, even worse than "You Light Up My Life" or "Feelings"? Worse than "Muskrat Love"?

  4. Ok 70s fans!

  6. As I looked at the 80s list I said to myself -- wow, where was I? I knew so few of them.

    As for the 70s -- there were so many bad disco tunes from the late 70s it's hard to know where to begin -- but in general I think I've just forgotten the bad songs of the late 70s -- but I think there's something by KC and the Sunshine Band that's pretty awful!
