Jukebox Friday: World Tour.

It's vacation time again, which means this will be the last post here for two weeks or so. (Check back in the last week of August for some new content.)

The Netherlands ("You're the Greatest Lover" by Luv):

Iceland ("Love Message From Overseas" by Leoncie):

China (unknown song by Tale Crasher):
