“Tiny Bubbles” – Don Ho

"Tiny Bubbles" - Don Ho

“Tiny Bubbles” is a song written by Martin Denny and Leon Pober. It was released in 1966 by Don Ho. It charted on both the pop (#66 on the Hot 100) and easy listening charts, which caused its album, also called Tiny Bubbles, to peak at number 57 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and is widely considered to be his most famous song. Nearly three years later Evie Sands’ “Any Way That You Want Me” tied “Tiny Bubbles” for longevity among 1960s hits failing to reach the Hot 100’s top 50 (at 17 weeks).

Donald Tai Loy “Don” Ho (simplified Chinese: 何大来; traditional Chinese: 何大來; pinyin: Hé Dàlái; August 13, 1930 – April 14, 2007) was a Hawaiian and traditional pop musician, singer and entertainer. He has many hits including the song Tiny Bubbles. Ho, a singer of Hawaiian and Chinese descent on his paternal side and Hawaiian and Portuguese descent on his mother’s side, was born in the small Honolulu neighborhood of Kakaʻako to Emily (Honey) Leimaile Silva and James Ah You Puao Ho, but he grew up in Kāneʻohe on the windward side of the island of Oʻahu.
