We're down to about 60 days and I'm listening to a pack of the Hawaiian CD's we've collected over the past years, in traveling to the islands.
When I first started going to Hawaii 31 years ago, it was a lot of Don Ho and some tourist pop-stuff then. I remember my first trip to Hawaii, from SFO to HNL, we flew United and they played Hawaiian music during the whole trip. Got us in the mood.
I've been there 6 times since and don't remember the music on the plane being that inspiring. SO ---- I play it myself.
Playing "IZ -- Wonderful World" now. Got a stack of island music to go.
So, what music do YOU play, to put you in the islands.....before you even get there? I'm curious what inspires others in their travels to the islands. I love slack guitar, so that is next!
(Have to admit, being an Elvis fan, I love "Blue Hawaii" even though it's pure pop culture...LOL).
