The Pick Hit of The Week "Workin' Hard" by the Olympics is the flip side of "Shimmy Like Kate"

I remember the Summer of 1960 vividly on KFXM. Out of school and listening all day long. Good to see one of my
alltime favs come in:
PINEAPPLE PRINCESS.
Loved the line:"....in wiki waki
waikiki.."
A hook to remember.

was that anything like "The Hawaiian War Chant" by Spike Jones and His Wacky Wakakians with Chorus from 1951???
the song went something like, "Ta-Hu-Wa-Hu-Wai..."

No not at all.
PINEAPPLE PRINCESS was a great
pop hit. Those Wiki lyrics
were a hook. The rest of
the song was legit.

Check it out on UTUBE.

thanks to ANONYMOUS JONES for the tip about catching "Pineapple Princess" over on You-Tube.Com.
Annette's accompanying video was a nice touch; however, i actually liked the other version that was done by "Na Leo Pilimehana" -- a little less sacharine production which caught my ear.
