Artist: Keola & Kapono Beamer Song: Honolulu City Lights. Took my clothes and put them in the bag; try not to think just yet of leaving. Looking out into the city night and it's not easy to leave again. Each time Honolulu city lights stir up memories in me. Each night Honolulu city lights bring me back again. You are my island sunset; you are my island dream. Put on my shoes and light a cigarette. Wonderin' which of my friends will be here.
The album opens with the title track, Honolulu City Lights – which is a slow song, but still pretty nice. I know I was expecting one of the Hawaiian sounding songs you hear in movies, but nope, it’s slow and relaxing. Next up comes Kaliponi Slack Key – which seems to be an instrumental, which kind of reminds me of the Allman Brothers Whipping Post – but with less Southern Rock. So far, this album is pretty relaxing. Gives me the feel that Hawaii is laid back and relaxing.
