This Soundie begins with a hula dancer surrounded by her girls performing a little strange choreography. The slow, melancholy music does not really want to fit to her dance. Jeanne and Harold then sing "Sweet Seilani" with not-very-precise hula dancers in silhouette behind them. The Song ends abruptly and the action shifts to a beach-scene with drum music where the hula dancers obviously feel more comfortable.
