We Are One (Ole Ola) — FIFA World Cup 2014

This song by Pitbull will always remind Brazilian fans about their team’s failure. FIFA 2014 in Brazil appeared to be an epic fail for entire Latin America. Argentina lost against Germany in the finals, while Brazil even failed to take third place in the match with the Netherlands losing 3–0. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGtWWb9emYI

Text of the song 

[Hook: Pitbull] Put your flags up in the sky (put ’em in the sky) And then wave ’em side to side (side to side) Show the world where you’re from (show ’em where you’re from) Show the world we are one (one, love, life) Ole ole ole ola Ole ole ole ola Ole ole ole ola Ole ole ole ola [Verse 1: Pitbull] When the going gets tough The tough keep going One love, one life, one world, one fight Whole world, one night, one place, Brazil Everybody put your flags in the sky and do what you feel [Bridge: Pitbull] It’s your world, my world, our world today And we invite the whole world, whole world to play It’s your world, my world, our world today And we invite the whole world, whole world to play Es mi mundo, tu mundo, el mundo de nosotros Invitamos a todo el mundo a jugar con nosotros

Celebrate The Day — FIFA World Cup 2006

Although FIFA 2006 took place in Germany, its anthem sounds like traditional BOSSA NOVA vibes taking us to the sunny beaches of Sao Paolo. The tournament brought a bunch of sensational and memorable moments out of the box featuring the Italian team’s win in the finals and Zidane punching Materazzi and getting the red card. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1PUo0lpR18

Text of the song 

Her face is cracked from smiling, all the fears that she’s been hiding, And it seems pretty soon everybody’s gonna know. And her voice is sore from shouting, cheering winners who are losing, And she worries if their days are few and soon they’ll have to go. * My, my, my, I’m so happy, I’m gonna join the band, We are gonna dance and sing in celebration, We are in the promised land. She hears them talk of new ways to protect the home she lives in, Then she wonders what it’s all about when they break down the door. Her name is Brown or White or Black, you know her very well, You hear her cries of mercy as the winners toll the bell. * Chorus There is a train that leaves the station heading for your destination, But the price you pay to nowhere has increased a dollar more. Yes, it has! And if you walk you’re gonna get there though it takes a little longer, And when you see it in the distance you will wring your hands and moan. verse 1: En avant pour la victoire En avant pour la victoire C’est le moment de l’espoir C’est le moment de l’espoir Let the sweet air Fill our hearts Walk on and celebrate the… Day the day the day celebrate the day etc. Grab your drums Paint your soul Feel the roar and celebrate the… To win again To never stop climbing The rising road Of ultimate faith Unity The world in a heartbeat When you dream When you dream Away…away

Vangelis — Anthem FIFA World Cup 2002

Taking place in Korea/Japan, FIFA 2002 appeared to be the last (we hope not the least) glorious tournament for the Brazilian international team. They managed to beat Germany in the finals with Ronaldo scoring 2 goals. The anthem represents some light techno sounds combined with slow-motion video. Get into the time machine! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcbGxT7nG60

Text of the song 

I would like to write a song That is so vibrant and so intimate That the earth would adopt it As if it had sprung like the stream From the land’s memory As if no one had written it but life itself

And my song would travel along From bird to wing, to tree To breeze to heart to breath to song Because a song belongs to everyone Like the spring

 

 

Un Estate Italiana — Gianna Nannini & Edoardo Bennato — FIFA World Cup 1990

FIFA 1990 anthem is probably the most melodic and beautiful track ever made for the major football tournament. The award-winning duo featuring Gianna Nannini and Edoardo Bennato made their best to make us feel the thrill of the upcoming battles and Germany winning 1–0 against Argentina in the final match. Italy took third place after beating England. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTbMwJMqilI

Text of the song 

-Forse non sará una canzone A cambiare le regole del gioco -Ma voglio viverla cosí quest’ avventura Senza frontiere e con il cuore in gola 1 - E il mondo in una giostra di colori E il vento accarezza le bandiere - Arriva un bivido e ti trascina via E sciogli in un abbraccio la follia - Notti magiche Inseguendo un goal Sotto il cielo di un’estate italiana E negli occhi tuoi Voglia di vincere Un’ estate Un avventura in piú - Quel sognio che comincia da bambino e che ti porta sempre piu lontano - Non e una favola — e diagli spogliatoi Escono i ragazzi e siamo noi - Notti magiche Inseguendo un goal Sotto il cielo Di un’estate italiana E negli occhi tuoi Voglia di vincere Un’ estate Un avventura in piu Notti magiche Inseguendo un goal Sotto il cielo Di un’estate italiana-na-na-na-na! E negli occhi tuoi Voglia di vincere Un’ estate Un avventura in piú Un avventura Un avventura in piú Un avventura goal!  ENGLISH
it probably won’t be a song
to change the rules of the game
but I want to live this adventure like this
having no limits and with my heart in my throat
The world is full of colours
and the wind caresses the flags
a shiver comes and it carries you away
and it cools down the madness in an embrace
magic nights
following a goal
under the sky
of an Italian summer
And in your eyes
the desire to win
a summer
one more adventure
That dreams that starts when you’re [just] a kid
and that takes you always further
it’s not a fairytale
it comes from the locker rooms
the guys come out and it’s us
magic nights
following a goal
under the sky
of an Italian summer
And in your eyes
the desire to win
a summer
one more adventure

   

The Ramblers — El Rock Del Mundial

Are you ready for an ultimate FIFA 1962 party? The Ramblers will rock the house with their essential anthem called “El Rock Del Mundial”. The song was to commemorate FIFA 1962 taking place in Chile.

Ricky Martin — La Copa de la Vida — World Cup 1998 song
