Here I listed 3 most notable football/soccer songs that I believe will inspire you guys greatly in any fields that you guys are doing, especially the one that related to Sports. As some of you might have expected, I do put those songs in order from less favorite to the most favorite.
Ricky Martin (The Cup of Life)
Genre: Dance pop, Latin pop.
"The Cup of Life" was not a new song once it was introduced as a theme song for Fifa Worldcup 1998, but it was simply a translation of the song "La Copa de la Vida," a track included on Ricky's fourth album, Vuelve. If you noticed, there are two version of "The Cup of Life", one is more enriched with Latin's musical instrument while the other one is more likely as a remix version, this version has a faster tempo compared to the one mentioned earlier.
Bellini (Samba de Janeiro)
Genre: Dance pop, Samba
"Samba de Janeiro" was populared by a Brazillian dance pop singer, Bellini. This song was written somewhere around 90's but started to popular at the end of 90's, once it had been remixed (I guess).
E-Type (Campione 2000)
"Campione 2000" is a football song that was the official song of the European Football Championship 2000 (Euro 2000) in the Netherlands and Belgium. It was performed by swedish musician E-Type, who is also a co-writer of the song. What makes this song no.1 is that the song includes football chantings "campione" (champion in English) repetatively during the song's intro and chorus; which makes the song so inspirational.
