random thoughts about songs – Escape

In the song, “Escape” (a.k.a. “The Pina Colada Song”) by Rupert Holmes, the singer tells of reading a personal ad that starts:

“If you like Pina Coladas
And gettin’ caught in the rain
If you’re not into yoga
If you have half a brain…”

And he’s intrigued by this person, so he starts his reply:

“Yes I like Pina Coladas
And gettin’ caught in the rain
I’m not much into health food
I am into champagne…”

Fom the way he matches what she said in the first and second lines, I’ve often thought that the “not much into health food” line is supposed to be a joke. As in, she doesn’t want someone who’s into yogA, so he replies – trying to sound knowledgeable, as if they’re on the same level – to express that indeed he does not like yogURT. 😀
