Stuck On You – Lionel Ritchie

Stuck On You – This cover version of the Lionel Ritchie song, was played by the Malolo Island Bula Band when I was in Fiji recently. I always admire and aspire to the relaxed ways of the native Fijians. There is a reason why these guys have some of the lowest cancer rates in the world. Their stress levels are as low as their tempers are cool.

Stuck On You

Sit back, turn up the volume, relax and take a deep breath of fresh island air while Iliesa (vocals, lead guitar), Tivita (drums) and Viliame (rhythm guitar) from the Malolo Island Bula Band play Stuck On You by Lionel Ritchie.

We had a great time on Malolo Island in Fiji. I highly recommend it for a relaxing holiday away from the western lifestyle. We stayed in a “bure” about 50 meters left of the jetty in this photo below.

Until next time: Bula!

  1. Just love the drum….never seen a bottle used as a drum before. They have a lovely melody and rhythm. Just think when I am a hugely successful internet marketer I also can holiday in Fiji and allow my troubles to just float away…..bring it on!

  2. Oh wow Sean… So cool… What a way to spend an afternoon… I would have had a pina colada, for sure. Well, maybe a few hey….

    That’s great that you obviously got to chat to the guys. Good on you for getting their names and acknowledging them here. Was that you I could hear in the background on the triangles?

  3. Sean back in April of 2008 Leanne and i went to Fiji for a holiday it was fantastic we had a lot of fun. the highlight of the trip was a 5 night cruise on the ship where we visited all the islands. In the evening we would sit around and listen to the island folk sing and display there culture. it was great i would it again tomorrow.

    Hi Sean,

    I love the song. These guys have such a relaxed way about them. It’s contagious. It looks so beautiful there. I think I’d feel like I’d died and gone to heaven.

    I could really do with a week of just relaxing on the beach. πŸ™‚

  5. What a great band , they surely would have set the scene for a layback holiday I bet. One thing I noticed is all the people who were sitting in the front seats have left, or are they just getting more drinks !
    I suppose also when you have a successful internet business, you can fly around the world visiting beach huts & listening to Fijian bands playing Stuck On You-Lionel Ritchie.

  6. Just to prove how daggy I am I actually have this song on my iPod – and I have had it for ages now!! But for the love of God, don’t tell anyone! Such a great song…

    That makes me think – Sean is just a big of a dag as I am.

    Love the blue ocean, that looks like heaven on earth. That band rocks, I love how mellow they are and how they work as a team πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing your gorgeous break.

    Cheers

  8. Hi Sean,

    • That is picture perfect Rita!

      Can you imagine having your own personal band surrounding you while sitting under a low hanging palm tree that’s on a 45 degree angle, overshadowing, ever so slightly the comfortable banana chair, sipping on a fruit cocktail. Sweet sounds of Lional Ritchie’s Stuck on You…. and you looking out towards the beautiful blue sea that stretches on forever…

  9. Great relaxing video. If this is what you get once you are a successful Internet Marketer – I guess I have to work a bit harder to get there soon πŸ™‚
    Thanks Sean for sharing the good sides of life πŸ™‚

  10. These guys remind me of all of your commenter’s, Sean. They take simple instruments and make beautiful music just as we’re taking simple words and making wonderful pathways for everyone to travel on a magnificent journey.

    Thank you for letting us get stuck on you πŸ™‚

  11. We stayed at Malolo Island a few years ago. Fantastic location, great entertainment. Thanks for reliving some fantastic moments for me.

  12. Goody, more music, Soothes the savage beast!

    • Hey Jo, soothing music that soothes my savage beast!!! I have oodles & poodles of them – I need it. Sometimes my savage beast can’t get enough and it’s better than giving yourself a hard time – I mean MYSELF!! Oooopppps. BTW – I often will write ‘yourself’ when I actually mean ‘myself’.

  13. I like the original version, but these guys just take you to that place where the sun is shining, the waves are rolling in and the sand is soft and warm πŸ™‚

  14. Hey there Sean- great stuff! Very relaxing. Awwww, wish I was there. Perhaps one day in the near future. Loved it!

  15. In my line of work as the founder and owner of “The Internet Lifestyle Project” it is good to see those living the Internet Lifestyle, such as yourself, using your “freedom” so wonderfully!

    • Thanks Terry. To get up, away from the computer for a stretch and break can be a challenge sometimes! Let alone, making the commitment to get away on holiday! Just chilling… Funny to think that I have to make myself chill out and enjoy my “freedom” sometimes… πŸ™‚

  16. Stuck on you… got this feeling down deep in my soul that I just can’t lose – guess, I’m on my way. This song on my iTunes playlist is under “Heart” – cause as you can imagine the song does have a lot heart. Depends what kind of mood I am in – this song can make me cry. Most of the songs on my iTunes have deep meaning for me. I even have a long list of inspirational songs. Since finding (or it found me) Hope 103.2 it has changed me over time & introduced me to some fantastic inspiring music. And it’s such a positive radio station to listen to.

  17. Bula! Love Fiji – I haven’t been back for a while but I always dreamed that someday I could escape the rat race and go and hang out in a little villiage somewhere in Fiji – they have such a simple life with so much beauty and serenity. I have since changed my mind – I am definately going to settle in Thailand but that is for another blog comment.

  18. Hi Sean,

    I love this music. It’s just so relaxing. It’s the perfect way to chill out and relax. Now I just need a wine or two and then it’s back to work.

  19. Hi Sean

    This was a nice find, reminded me of when I was in Fiji in 2008!

    I was thinking about getting some shut eye but now I am fully awake.

    Thank you Sean
