    Montreux, Canton of Vaud

    "We all came out to Montreux on the Lake Geneva shoreline To make records with a mobile - We didn't have much time" The Montreux Jazz festival Deep Purple is refering to is a must!

  • 3. I love Paris, (Cole Porter)
    Paris, Ile-de-France

    "I love Paris in the springtime, I love Paris in the fall. I love Paris in the winter..." Whether or not your love is in Paris, I bet you will love it any season!

  • 4. Is Chicago, is not Chicago (Soul Coughing)
    Chicago, Illinois

    Everybody is in the room! To tell you the truth, I don't understand the lyrics but it seems that it is - or is not - Chicago…

  • 5. Singapore (Tom Waits)
    Singapore, Asia

    "We sail tonight for Singapore, don't fall asleep while you're ashore"; It seems quite an adventure to head to Singapore with Tom Waits…

  • 6. Back in USSR (The Beatles)
    Moscow, Central Russia

    USSR may no longer exist but you could still be knocked out by Ukraine girls, sing and shout with Moscow girls… Except, this would happen in different countries now…

  • 7. The girl from Ipanema (Antonio Carlos Jobim)
    Ipanema Beach, Rio de Janeiro, State of Rio de Janeiro

    The Rio beach was made famous by this song.

  • 8. Kokomo, Aruba (The Beach Boys)
    Aruba, Caribbean

    "Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you"… Who doesn't dream of "Bodies in the sand, Tropical drinks melting in your hands (…) Afternoon delight, Coktails and moonlit nights"?

  • 9. First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin (Leonard Cohen)
    Berlin, Germany

    Once again, I don't understant much of this song, but Leonard says we should take Berlin;) why not?! It's one of the most fun city in Europe to go out at night.

  • 10. Georgia (Ray Charles)
    Georgia, United States

    There's so much love in Ray's voice when he sings about he dear Georgia. I like the huge trees there.
