    Pua Lilia, when sung by the Cazimeros, can make me cry on the spot. It can be either stalkingly erotic or gut-rippingly forlorn. And both their original version w/Sunday Manoa or their recent "Some call it aloha" version offers that same pull. Perfect for weddings and funerals, I tell ya.

    English songs? Its somewhere along the lines of
    -Lively Up
    -Redemption Song,
    -and the live version of No Woman No Cry.

    C&K's "ELUA" was, and remains, an amazing accomplishment in american music...and it continues to dwarf anything anyone in "Island Music" has done since "ELUA" was made...imho...

    I gotta echo Albert's praise for Gabby's "Hi`ilawe," with honorable mention to Ho`okena's "Ulili`e," which is great no matter who's doing it. Third place goes to Ka`au Crater Boys' version of "Kawika." Yes, I know everyone likes others' recordings of it better, but this one just rocks.

    For non-Hawaiian, I'll take the Fabulous Krush's "Waialua Sky," followed by C&K's "About You" and Led Ka`apana's "Maunaloa Slack Key."

    I love this song too, but couldn't find the complete lyrics. This is all I remember:

    Bottles and cans, old pots and pans.
    Even a half jug of wine.
    Humpty-back trunk, unlimited junk.
    Tonight the Makawao Dump is fine.

    I only know one Hawaiian band - Kalapana. I like the soft side of their music.
    Their song 'Naturally' comes to mind.
