What do most of you use for Hula Hoop Contests? Looking for some older songs to use.
When I think of Hula, I think Chubby Checker - The Twist, or Lets Twist Again.
Maybe some Hawiian type songs.
Jivebunny - The Album track 5. It is an old rock medley of songs including the twist.
I use wipe out, or Hawaii 5-0
either song is long enough for most contestss!!
Go to the Blues Brothers CD and play "Shake A Tailfeather"!
Teresa Brewer had a song in 1958 that reached #38 on the charts called "The Hula Hoop Song". It has those extraordinary island rhythms and instrumentation, great lyrics, and can easily be looped for repeat playing until the contest is finished.
The faster tempo (jitterbug and/or twist) suggestions might do well for the finals however consider the "Hawaiian Hookie Lau" or "Hawaiian War Chant" which might add bit of creativity.
You spin me right round baby right round, like a record baby right round round now
