Music Mondays(Tues): Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride (Lilo & Stitch)

Music Monday...on this Tuesday. Sorry I thought I had automatically sent this to post and realized that did not happen. We had a busy wedding weekend to celebrate my niece's nuptials and now here we are today.....

The summer season has officially started. This year, our family will be lucky enough to vacation in Hawaii. It's about a 5-hr flight from Southern California and if you plan ahead, find the right airfare and accommodations, this tropical vacation is possible. Hawaii also reminds us that Lilo and Stitch's story takes place on this island. 

My family loves Lilo and Stitch with the latter being MacSparky's favorite Disney character. One of the original songs on the fun soundtrack is Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride by Alan Silvestri and Mark Keali'i Ho'omalu. It's a pretty fun song that incorporates Hawaiian lyrics.

There's no place I'd rather be
Than on the seashore dry, wet free
On golden sand is where I lay
And if I only had my way
I'd play til the sun sets
Beyond the horizon

Lalala i ka lā hanahana
Me ke kai hoene i ka pu'e one
It's time to try the Hawaiian Roller coaster ride

The original song was performed by Kealiʻi Hoʻomalu and the Kamehameha Schools children's chorus. There was also had a pop version recorded by Jump 5. It's a pretty fun and upbeat song.

I would recommend listening to the entire soundtrack as it is filled with great music. Lilo and Stitch love to listen to Elvis. There are some classics like Suspicious Minds and Devil in Disguise on CD. 


Aloha! Happy Music Monday...on this late Tuesday.
