There's one by Akon with it. It sucks to be honest...

I actually liked the Akon song. I have to say the only energetic WC song was in 1998 - Ricky Martin's un, dos, tres. Very catchy, and was a truly anthemic tune.

I think this is the best WC Anthem song yet, Ricky Martin's was for 98 in France, there was nothing french about it, the guy was singing in spanish and counting in it too. This sounds african and the words are very descriptive of world cup fever and how the tournament enthrawls the world every 4 years.

Akon's song "Oh Africa" is not so bad either.

At least these songs sound like WC songs.

Vangelis did the best theme for the World Cup back in 2002. The rest is rubbish, commercial and absolute rubbish.

I really like it (both the original and the celebration remix). It's what a World Cup anthem should be :thumbsup:. Reminds me a little of that Bamboo version of Shakira's "Hips Don't Lie".

This is not an official song, but one I think is pretty funny, called "Gimme Hope Joachim" by German a capella group Basta (the song itself is a parody of Eddy Grant's "Gimme Hope Joanna):

[tub]YMAvAQ3FhgQ[/tub]

Lyrics translated for non-German speakers such as myself:

The Portuguese have the best players; The Brazilians are pretty fast; The Spaniards have not lost three years; But we have the most beautiful hotel.

The Ronaldinho has the best technique; Ronaldo has the best physic; David Beckham has a foot of steel; But Jogi Löw has the most beautiful hairdo.

Gimme hope, Joachim gimme, hope, Joachim!; Gimme hope, Joachim, for the World Cup!; Gimme hope, Joachim gimme, hope, Joachim!; Hope for South Africa …

The Koreans have nimble legs; The Mexicans have a hard shot; The French have a good man in goal; But we have the largest bus …

The Danes strengthen with the protein; The Serbs toil half dead; The Argentinians torture in the jungle camp; But Jogi smears Nutella on his bread …

Gimme hope, Joachim gimme, hope, Joachim!; Gimme hope, Joachim, for the World Cup!; Gimme hope, Joachim gimme, hope, Joachim!; Hope for South Africa …

The Greeks are once again tip; And Switzerland wins outnumbered; The Dutchmen are back with it; But still brings us Jogi ‘Cup …
