STOP THE WORLD AND WAKE ME UP

There are two songs stuck in my head the last week, which I hear in snippets upon waking:
John Doe and the Sadies doing "Stop The World"--I slept on that record until recently and it's really great, I bet you would enjoy it: country covers and Doe's gentleman croon.

The other...Rupert Holmes' "Escape (The Pina Colada Song)", his number #1 hit in 1979....

a mere five years after Rolling Stone had called him the next Dylan.
