Over the last decade or so, international soccer (fútbol) tournaments have had great upbeat and catchy official songs, that make you want to go to the beach, kick a soccer ball around, or drive with the windows down.
For the 2010 FIFA World Cup these songs were “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)” by Shakira and “Wavin’ Flag” by K’NAAN. The 2014 World Cup followed with “We are One (Ole Ola)” by Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez, and Claudia Leitte and “The World is Ours” by Aloe Blacc and David Correy.
Continuing this trend, “This One’s For You” by David Guetta, and Zara Larsson, has been announced as the official song for the 2016 UEFA European Championship this summer. The song has more of an electronic feel than the songs listed above, but continues with the great vibes that make you want to kick a soccer ball around or hang out on the beach.
