Thread Name: Your Favorite Hawaiian Songs
Subject: RE: Your Favorite Hawaiian Songs
"Look Out For The Girl In The Hula Skirt" is my all time flavorite but I'm also partial my song, "Ahukahubba How 'Bout You?" An escapist number that has much of the same feeling as the songs from the first great depression, (There's more than one? Yup. Or maybe I just haven't recovered yet from the first one.) where folks longed to leave their worries behind and find themselves on a tropical beach somewhere soakin' up the sun. Kind of a universal yearning I think, especially today with the pace of things being so demanding, layoffs, downsizing, jobs moving overseas, recession, wars, terrorists, cars throwing rods through blocks (it just happened to me), gas prices going up.... Need I go on? I think you get the picture. We could all use some heavy-duty r&r.
