wanted: Tiki / Topical theme music

Postby pjs » Wed Aug 16, 2006 11:34 am

Building an art car called the Tiki Ice Bar.

We'll be going around making snow cones out on the playa. Thousands of snow cones all week long. Got the DMV email, Nevada health permit, 40 gallons of syrup, 6 gallons of margarita/booze, commercial snow cone machine, battery+inverter, money for hundreds of bags of ice from Arctica, etc. We're decorating the car this week.

What we're still needing is more Tiki theme music to play. Found some, but it could get old quickly. Any suggestions? Know of a good CDs or tracks on itunes? Please email paul at pjrc dot com. MP3 files also greatly appreciated, of course :-)

Do a search for Martin Denny and download those.

Be careful of the people who hear too much and run amok.

(No, I can't help you, all my Martin Denny is on vinyl. Luddite.)

Ry Cooder/Manuel Galvan: "Mambo Sinuendo". Very tiki!

Avoid Annette Funicello "Pineapple Princess."

Arthur Lyman is another in the Martin Denny genre.
