10 Songs You NEED For Your [World Cup]

10 Songs You NEED For Your [World Cup]

The 10 Songs of the FIFA World Cup -KKS The FIFA World Cup isn't just something that happens everyday. It's a celebration for the love of soccer (football) that happens every four years. I always find there's a special unity that the World Cup brings when watching it. Maybe it's because I can finally have my friends over and they aren't fighting about which team is going to win. This years World Cup has already lead to high anticipation from countries like Argentina, Brazil, Netherlands, while other countries such as England and Spain are already heading home. Whether you're excited that your country is advancing or you're in tears that your country is heading home, we've got our 10 songs of the Fifa World Cup that will get you through it all.

 

1.) The best teams are back, and the rest are left as ghosts.

I can definitely picture "Presets - Ghost" as a great intro for the FIFA World Cup. The intro brings shivers down my spine as if 80,000 people are cheering in the stadium. The glory of the World Cup brings players to rock star status and fans doing whatever superstitions it takes in hopes of winning. Only 32 countries participate in the World Cup, while others are left as ghosts.

2.) So take your jewelry off, and put your football boots on,

813 Remix starts things off with play full vibes, and samples that make me feel like a kid all over again. I feel as if I should be just bouncing around right now. For the World Cup Players, put your things away because we got a game to play. Lace those boots, cleats, shoes or whatever you call them up and get to work.

3.) because it's time to dance.

It's the big dance people, that moment in your life where you have to rise up in the spotlight and grab the gold.  The moment where you say FU to the boss or that moment when you get your first paycheck. Major Lazer x Lazerdisk will have you grooving and give you that extra kick of energy to start things off.

4.) There is only one Champion at the World Cup

There is only one Champion, so give it all you got. It's such a easy thing to say, but for any player in the World Cup the last thing you'd like is to walk away from the World Cup and not believe that you haven't given it your all. Yellow Claw & Yung Felix - Dancefloor Champion will leave you inspired to be...That Champion.

5.) and everybody wants to rule the world.

What would you do if you ruled the world? Just A Gent would turn things into a beautiful masterpiece just like he has done here. I know all of us have different ideas on what we would do if we ruled the world, but after that final World Cup game and a country is declared champion, it must feel pretty close to ruling the world.

6.) There's no turning back now. 

I know many of us wish we could turn back time but it's not going to happen, just yet. Right now there's no turning back for any of the teams in the world cup, although some fans and players wish their team could turn back time now, Steerner lights things up with a perfect progressive house remix that leaves us with both our hands up.

7.) It may feel like War

It may feel like war out on the pitch, and when the pressure is on, many will fail. If you don't embrace the moments sometimes you can let the best things slip away.

8.) But, it's Us Against the World.

It may feel like your team is up against the world and that's because it is.... Seriously though, one of my favorite songs here. A perfect balance between rap and vocals. The production is phenomenal and the horn section really out of this world. Take a listen to the passionate vibes this track brings together.

9.) With time though, The Color's Will Fade

Time heals everything, if you aren't crowned Champion of The World Cup, go get them in the next four years. Don't give up on your hopes and dreams people! Peking Duk makes me dream all over again. A perfect combination of emotional vocals, warm punchy bass, and tastefully placed vocal chops will make you have this track on repeat. One of my favorite tracks of 2014.

10.) Because one day it will all turn around.

To top things off we have a classic song from Matisyahu. The song "One Day" preaches that it's not about winning or losing but what you do when you embrace the moments in life. Remembering listeners that we're all here for a reason and that one day it will all turn around. No matter what happens at the World Cup there are bigger problems that we have in this world and hopefully at the end of the day we can all put our competitive nature aside to turn some of these things around.
