112: Do The Hula
Hawaiian sheet music cover -- Ca. 1921. Words and Music by Don McDiarmid. In the beginning of the previous century countless songs were produced that capitalized on the fad of all things Hawaiian, including hula. This risque topless hula dancer doesn't look very native as most images of the time seemed borrowed from Hollywood's notion of what 'native' should look like: Caucasians in native garb. Luckily, things have changed and in the process images such as these have become charming remnants of a changed society.
