Until 1912 most Hawaiian songs were written in the Hawaiian language, and they generally didn't receive much exposure outside of the islands. However, with the huge success that year of the Broadway hit Bird of Paradise, every Tin Pan Alley tunesmith was quick to write his own version of "Hawaiian" songs.   Interestingly, more Hawaiian records were sold in the United States in 1916 than any other type of music! by Shannyincali
