Drums of Bora Bora and Papeete

Artist: Drums of Bora Bora and Papeete
LP: Tahiti Dances
Song: "Hellaby"
[ listen ]
Song: "Moorea"
[ listen ]

This lively recording filled with the native songs of Tahiti—some with singing, some with only throbbing percussion—features one of the cutest fellas I've seen on the cover of any record since the release of this single back in 1983. With all the talk of gaiety in the LP liner notes, I really thought I might stand a chance with this guy... until I got to the part where it says that the people of Tahiti shun foreign imports. Oh well, it would have been tough to compete anyway with all those graceful Tahitian women running around in grass skirts with no panties on underneath.

[ Tahiti—a world of exotic beauty, carefree romance, gaiety, and no underpants. ]
