Surfin’ the Turf #21: Hawaiian War Chant

May 23, 2016 at 5:02 pm Leave a comment

Originally written as a love song by in the 1860s by Prince Leleiohoku, this tune got a completely different set of lyrics and went on to become a staple of the Big Band era. It was covered by countless artists and groups, including the Ventures. Check out versions on Youtube by Buddy Rich, Spike Jones, and Les Paul & Mary Ford.

Much as I love the Ventures, I found their version pretty unimaginative. I tried to juice things up a bit with mine.
