    Guess it's time for me to get my head out of the Virginia heat and smell the plumerias. I can't miss a week that honors one of my favorite places in the world #==() l)

    It was either this, or "Ukuleles aren't allowed in bluegrass" since I recently did "Hula hula boys." If I had the talent to play a slack-key guitar, this would have been a perfect add for one of my favorite obscure early Kinks songs. Instead, here you go. Thanks for hosting, Miri and Steffen!

    Thanks for hosting Miri and Stephen. We don't get to see you often enough. This is also a great time for the newer seasonistas that are unfamiliar with your channel to check it out https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClU...kbhhm-R_qdtFEw
    I was just thinking the same thing Linda. Thanks for the links.

    I'll be honest, Hawaiian music is an area I have rarely ventured in to, so this week will be an education. In the meantime, I do know a bit about Abba...If anyone has the original "Arrival" album, this one might sound a bit familiar. They recorded it, but then recycled the backing track and used it for a new song "Why Did It Have To be Me", which went on the album. "Happy Hawaii" turned up later as a B-side and on expanded editions of the Arrival CD.

    I'm another with no Hawaiian music in my repertoire, but I do have an Hawaiian shirt, so that's something. This is a cover of Honolulu Baby, a song written for the 1933 Laurel and Hardy film Sons of The Desert. If you haven't seen Olly playing and singing this whilst Stan dances you have missed a treat

    I'm yet another who doesn't do Hawaiian music, nor do I own a Hawaiian shirt. I had this song by Roy Acuff on a cassette tape many years ago, and it amused and entertained me back then, so it popped in my head when this Season came around. Looking it up now though, this song was a lot more popular than I thought. Turns out it was recorded by several swing/big bands from the 1930's thru the 50's, and there's a 1933 Merrie Melodies cartoon of this song title, that uses the song in it. I had fun finally getting a chance to try this song, but it was a challenge to try and pull off.

    Aloha, Seasonistas!

    This melody dates all the way back to the 1860s (more history here), I first heard it performed by an anonymous Japanese ukulele player, and I cribbed this arrangement from a performance on the Lawrence Welk Show.



    Mahalo, Ukelites!
