Sweet Lealani, heavenly flower

You are my dream come true

I heard Bing Crosby's version, who sings it falsetto for most part off the song. Would have been nice for Blue Hawaii. Maybe it was used in Crosby's movie with the same name.

I listened to the Private Moments home recordings FTD CD once. I can't remember this song at all.

Good song. Too bad Elvis never did an actual studio recording of this song - then they could've used it as a 'bonus' track for the Paradise, Hawaiian Style" album.

Can't stand lousy homerecordings. Not worth mentioning. 1 star.
