Simple but with harmony and melody

It's too bad Such a pleasant song is about cannibalism, but you don't quite comprehend that at the start because the melody is so catchy. A weird song to have, to say the least. By the way, Rupert Holmes was a session musician back then and (in additiion to composing the piece) played piano for the Buoys when this song was issued in 1971.

Timothy - a Dave Barry Classic!

DB ranks this song as 4th worse song ever from his "Book of bad songs". Behind (everybody's favorite) "Macarthur's park", "Yummy, yummy yummy" and "Havin' my baby". A nice song about a mining disaster where there are 3 survivors .... and after a while they get hungry. Poor Timothy! Made all the more special by being penned by Rupert Holmes, the Pina Colada author.
