"Honolulu City Lights" is a song composed by Hawaiian singer/songwriter Keola Beamer (b.1951) in the 1970s which opens an album by the same name. The album won several of the Hawaiian music industry's Na Hoku Hanohano Awards in 1979, among them that for Best Contemporary Hawaiian Album, and both song and album went on to become one of the most popular and most played works of contemporary Hawaiian music.
A cover of the song was recorded by Richard and Karen Carpenter in 1978, but was not released until 1986 on single, and 1989 on album.
The Beamer Brothers album was re-released in 1999 as "Honolulu City Lights - 20th Anniversary" but listed as "Honolulu City Lights - 20th Anniversay" in leading catalogs and remains in print as of 2009.
