Disney's "Lilo & Stitch"- Aloha Oe(01:35)

"Aloha `Oe", also known as "Farewell to Thee", is a short song sung by Nani when it seemed like it was their last moment together with Lilo from the 2002 film Lilo & Stitch. It is also sung by Lilo, Stitch and Reuben during the climax of Leroy & Stitch.

Variations of the song have also been used in several Disney shorts, such as Jungle Rhythm, Hawaiian Holiday, Soup's On and Freewayphobia #1. Annette Funicello sang a full English translation of the song on her album Hawaiannette, released under Buena Vista Records in 1960.

Composition

Aloha 'Oe was written and composed by Hawaii's last last monarch, and only queen regent of the Kingdom of Hawaii, Queen Liliuokalani. After being captured from her home land, she wrote it during her imprisonment, after it was taken over by western industrialization. The reasons behind the song was to express her grievances to that she was unable to protect her people and country, and it was also her way of apologizing for not being able to uphold her duty as Queen.

Its quite possible Nani was made to sing this song due to the fact that, like Queen Liliuokalani who was unable to protect her country, Nani was unable to protect Lilo, and like the queen who had her country taken from her, Nani was going to experence the same with Lilo.

Until we meet again

Trivia

  • One of the various meanings to the word or name- Lilo, is to "be lost"; which seems to match Lilo in the movie. Especially the scene that shows Nani singing Aloha ʻOe to her.
