With World Cup fever well and truly gripping the nation we thought it would be a perfect time to take a look at what makes ‘The Perfect World Cup Song’. So without further ado here’s our key elements to the perfect World Cup song…
A key element to mention but one that is sadly lacking from songs such as ‘Waka Waka (This time for Africa)’ by She-Wolf Shakira, which was the official World Cup song in 2010. Amazingly, there is no mention of feet, balls, pitches or even the odd line telling the ref to blow his whistle once in a while. There is, however, the line ‘Get back in the saddle’. We think poor Shakira got a bit confused here. Researching this has also led us to Google the lyrics to Waka Waka, which we can’t recommend enough to you all.
