The Anthems of FIFA

Yes, it's almost here! The most awaited football tournament ever. FIFA is almost upon us and everyone is feeling it. Jerseys are being bought, favorite teams are selected and theories of who's going to take the cup home are flying around.

Did I mention that songs also are being composed? Of course they are!

Every FIFA world cup has had an official song to go with it, that not surprisingly enough will be everyone's ringtone for the next few months.

Here are some awesome ones that deserve a mention -

Kicking it off is the 2014 FIFA theme song.



If this song is not going to make it to your cell phones, color me surprised. As every Pitbull song, it's catchy and the chant in the background is sure to be one of the highlights of the FIFA 2014 World Cup.



We are one (Ole Ola) - Pitbull feat. Jennifer Lopez



Waka Waka - Shakira

The official theme song of 2010 by Shakira was one to move your hips to. Featured now at every party, club and dance contests, this track was one of the most epic tracks that has been given the privilege of being the theme song of FIFA.



The Time of our Lives - Il Divo and Toni Braxton

A slow number, but no doubt one of the best ones, capturing the essence of football and the FIFA moments by rightly saying that this is truly the time of our lives. 2006 saw this epic track and was never forgotten.



Boom - Anastacia

In 2002, something amazing happened, Anastacia composed the song BOOM, which was a massive worldwide hit. It made you get up from your seat and just jump! A must hear and one of the best theme songs of FIFA!



Some tracks weren't exactly the official anthems of FIFA but still caught the attention of millions. These tracks deserve an honorable mention. The first being Wavin Flag by K'naan. Everyone hummed the tune, everyone did the dance and everyone fell in love with the song. Pure heart and soul is what comes out in this song.

The second one will surely make u jump from your seat. It's Ricky Martin's song called The Cup of Life. I don't need to tell you more apart from HERE WE GO ALE ALE ALE!
