Default Music - The International Language

Stumbled across this on YouTube and it just seemed right to share here on the forum. Given that we are an international lot, I couldn't think of anything more appropriate than this.

The song is obviously the anthem of the Doobie Brothers, and is opened by Tom Johnston himself. Later you'll see Pat Simmons, and John McFee, also of the DB's. However you'll see a host of other people simply having fun, some pro's, and some (unknown to me) that might be pro's, or maybe are just amateurs having fun. And lastly, when you see Lara Johnston, I think that is Tom's daughter.

Very nice! The song was written by Tom and Lara is indeed his daughter.
