Three years ago, we compiled a list of Hawai‘i’s 50 greatest albums. The response was so great that we’re back with another list, this time singling out the best individual songs of Hawai‘i’s unrivaled musical canon. To help with such a daunting task, we invited an esteemed panel of musicians, historians and producers to vote for the songs they felt represented the best in Hawai‘i music. The results, tabulated according to a weighted point system, are amazingly diverse. The following pages contain everything from revered, Hawaiian-language standards to bubbly hapa haole ditties, monarchy-era anthems to contemporary, radio-friendly hits. Enjoy.
