Jukebox Friday: All Around the World 2.

Let's take another international trip in black and white with some vintage performances from overseas television.

Indorock was a uniquely Dutch subgenre of rock which combined American-style surf guitar twang with Caribbean folk rhythms. Here are two good examples. First, it's the Jokers doing "Tabu":

And the Crazy Rockers with "The Carioca":

From Quebec, Canada, comes the wonderfully-named Jenny Rock, singing "Douliou Dou St. Tropez":

Hong Kong gives us Nancy Sit, covering the Herman's Hermits hit "No Milk Today":

And finally, Caterina Caselli of Italy sings "Il Gioco dell'Amore":
