Top 9 World Cup Songs

Top 9 World Cup Songs
By Jason Brennan Updated

Sick of hearing the new world cup songs already? Yeah, we're not the biggest Pitbull fans either, so we've decided to put the headphones on and reminisce over songs from years gone by instead. Have a listen and let us know if we've missed any.

Carnival De Paris

A classic, you have probable heard this song at every single football event since, but you won't hear us complaining.

Waka Waka

Would this be here if it wasn't for Shakira's dancing? Does it matter?

Wavin Flag

Bastardised by Coca-Cola, this will hopefully be the version everyone remembers.

Mike Bassett - On Me Head, Son

Who cares if it's a fictional song, this should be England's official theme for every tournament.

Hot Hot Hot

Now lets not lie, did anyone know this was a world cup song? We didn't.

Here Comes The Good Times

Unforgettable, for all the wrong reasons. Sorry for dragging this up, but it was bound to feature eventually.

La Copa De La Vida

Is any list truly complete without Ricky Martin? No. The Cup of Life was actually the official song of the 1998 World Cup.

Who Do You Think You're Kidding Jurgen Klinsmann/No.1 World Cup Song

England have always had some pretty out-there World Cup songs, and by that we mean god awful. Impossible to choose between these two, we've gone for both.

Put 'Em Under Pressure

We want to live in a world where Jack Charlton's voice is dubbed over every Horslips song, but because we know that's unlikely, we'll just have to console ourselves with this.
