World Cup Anthems and Songs


1. What is the Theme Song of the Successive World Cups?

In this part, I will introduce the theme songs of successive World Cups. Well, how many do you remember?

1986 México
Song title: A Special Kind of Hero
Singer / Artist: Stephanie Lawrence

1986 was the World Cup in Mexico. It's about 30 years ago, so few people may remember it, but it might be a good idea to take this opportunity to ask again.

The gentle singing voice is a charming song, and it will be very healing.

It will be a good opportunity to remember the World Cup at that time as well as nostalgia.

1990 Italy
Song title: Un 'Estate Italiana
Singer / Artist: Giorgio Moroder & Gianna Nannini

Do you know the 1990 World Cup was held in Italy? Along time ago, so few people may remember it. I like this refreshing song, and I think there is no difference in age, so you can listen to it again.

1994 United States
Song title: Gloryland
Singer / Artist: Daryl Hall

This song is characterized by a refreshing and gentle melody, and sounds like a song that emphasizes cooperation and affinity with the world.

1998 France
Song title: La Cour des Grands
Singer / Artist: Giorgio Moroder

Song title: La Copa De La Vida
Singer / Artist: Ricky Martin

It is an interesting thing that there were two theme songs at this year's World Cup, which are songs that will liven up soccer at an uptempo.

2002 Korea and Japan
Song title: Anthem
Singer / Artist: Vangelis

Song title: Boom
Singer / Artist: Anastacia

Like the 1998 World Cup, there also were two theme songs in the 2002 World Cup. But the difference is that the venues were Korea and Japan. Many people may be familiar with "Anthem," which is also famous as a "lively soccer song."

2006 Brazil
Song title: Hips Don’t Lie
Singer / Artist: Shakira

Song title: Time of Our Lives
Singer / Artist: I Divo & Toni Braxton

Since 1998, there are also two theme songs in 2006 World Cup. Every time when I listen to the Hips Don’t Lie, I will get power. "Hips Don't Lie" is an up-tempo tune that incorporates the rhythm of samba, which is typical of Brazil, and "Time of Our Lives" is a calm tune with a ballad tone.

2010 South Africa
Song title: Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)
Singer / Artist: Shakira

Song title: Wavin’ Flag (Coca-Cola Celebration Mix)
Singer / Artist: K'naan

"Waka Waka" is an up-tempo song that makes you want to liven up soccer. "Wavin'Flag" is a melodious song, and the vocal singing voice is attractive and immersive. In my opionion, both songs are suitable for the World Cup!

2014 Brazil
Song title: We Are One (Ole Ola)
Singer / Artist: Pitbull feat. Jennifer Lopez & Cláudia Leitte

Song title: La La La
Singer / Artist: Carlos Santana featuring Wyclef & Avicii & Alexandre Pires

Song title: L Dar um Jeito (We Will Find a Way)
Singer / Artist: Shakira feat. Carlinhos Brown

It's worth to mention that he 2014 World Cup was held in Brazil again! In addition, there were 3 theme songs for World Cup since 2014. Every song makes soccer more exciting, and it's an up-tempo and mellow song.

2018 Russia
Song title: Live It Up
Singer / Artist: Nicky Jam feat. Will Smith & Era Istrefi

Song title: Команда Kamanda (SMASH)
Singer / Artist: JASON DERULO

Song title: COLORS
Singer / Artist: Smash, Полина Гагарина & Егор Крид

The 2018 World Cup just past, I believe you are still fresh in your memory, right? "Команда Kamanda (SMASH)" is a magnificent song, very suitable for the broad image of Russia. The theme song of the World Cup is lively and full-bodied. These lively, exciting and brisk songs make the football field lively.

It's great way to listen to the theme song again to look back on the various scenes of the World Cup.
