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.

[Hook: Pitbull] Put your flags up in the sky (put ’em in the sky)

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

Shoot, fall, the stars, fists raised up towards the sky
Tonight watch the world unite, world unite, world unite
For the fight, fight, fight, one night, watch the world unite
Two sides, one fight and a million eyes
Hey, hey, hey, força, força come on sing with me
Hey, hey, hey, allez, allez come shout it out with me

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.

Text of the song

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!

Text of the song

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.

Text of the song

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

New Order – World in Motion – World Cup 1990 Official Music Video

The beginning of the 90s represented the evolution of brand new music styles. For this reason, FIFA 1990 has several official songs and anthems. Apart from the Italian duo, the crowd craved for some more up-to-date and moving sounds. This is where New Order found its niche with its World in Motion song.

Text of the song

Text of the song

[Intro: Sample of commentary from 1966 World Cup final, by Kenneth Wolstenholme] Well, some of the crowd are on the pitch
Well, some of the crowd are on the pitch
They think it’s all over… well, it is now!

[Verse 1] Express yourself, create the space
You know you can win, don’t give up the chase
Beat the man, take him on
You never give up, it’s one on one

[Pre-Chorus] (Express yourself) It’s one on one
(Express yourself) It’s one on one
(Express yourself) You can’t be wrong
(Express yourself) When something’s good it’s never gone

[Chorus] Love’s got the world in motion
And I know what we can do
Love’s got the world in motion
And I can’t believe it’s true

[Verse 2] Now is the time, let everyone see
You never give up that’s how it should be
Don’t get caught make your own play
Express yourself don’t give it away

[Pre-Chorus] (Express yourself) It’s one on one
(Express yourself) It’s one on one
(Express yourself) You can’t be wrong
(Express yourself) When something’s good it’s never gone

[Chorus] Love’s got the world in motion
And I know what we can do
Love’s got the world in motion
And I can’t believe it’s true
Love’s got the world in motion
And I know what we can do
Love’s got the world in motion
And I can’t believe it’s true

[Interlude: More Commentary from 1966 World Cup match] We want goals
A beauty scored by Bobby Charlton
We want goals

[Verse 3: John Barnes] You’ve got to hold and give but do it at the right time
You can be slow or fast but you must get to the line
They’ll always hit you and hurt you, defend and attack
There’s only one way to beat them, get round the back
Catch me if you can, cause I’m the England man
And what you’re looking at is the master plan
We ain’t no hooligans, this ain’t a football song
Three lions on my chest, I know we can’t go wrong

[Outro] We’re playing for England (En-ger-land)
We’re playing this song
We’re singing for England (En-ger-land)
Arrivederci, it’s one on one
We’re playing for England (En-ger-land)
We’re playing this song
We’re singing for England (En-ger-land)
Arrivederci, it’s one on one
We’re playing for England (En-ger-land)
We’re playing this song
They think it’s all over… well, it is now!
We’re singing for England (En-ger-land)
Arrivederci, it’s one on one
We’re playing for England (En-ger-land)
We’re playing this song

We’re singing for England (En-ger-land)
Arrivederci, it’s one on one

but look how they treat us

then they deceive us
try to control us
they couldn’t hold us
cause we just move forward

when we will be free
so we patiently wait
for that faithfully day
