Q: What is the Hawaiian group's name that sings the song "Vacation Cruise"?
...from mystery in decatur, ga. usa (answer mystery's question)

Q: You say the song the Diva sings is "Il Dolce Suono" but why is there "The Diva Dance"? Aren't they the same in the movie? Well put together as a performance? I just want to know What part is where the high and low notes are it and what song that is exactly? (from misscurios in OREGON)
A: "Il Dolce Suono" is the first part of the song, sung a capella in Italian. When the accompaniment comes in and the singer switches to "ah", this is the "Diva Dance" which is not a part of the Il Dolce Suono. (thanks to Kerry, State College, PAadd more info

Q: I have been looking for the Hawaiian song for some time now. What is the name of it? "Vacation Cruise"? (from joe in INDIANA)
A: The Hawaiian song is likely a traditional song of welcome/love and was not scored by Eric Serra. It only appears on one version of the soundtrack, whose origins are a mystery, and likely not commercial or from authentic sources. On the official 10th anniversary version of the complete soundtrack, the song does not appear whatsoever. I am aware of and own 3 versions of the soundtrack - one the commercially released "shortened" version, the "10th Anniversary Complete Original Soundtrack" (which includes "Alech Taadi" but no lyrics to the Ruby Raps), and the "unofficial" complete score which includes the Hawaiian song, and music from the trailers, plus rumored unused film cues. "Alech Taadi" is also included, but both it and the Hawaiian song are covered with noise and SFX which likely make them from a fan rip of the film. (thanks to LeelooD5E, St. Louis, MOadd more info
