Music for the sport of soccer has come a long way from crazed fans singing, "Ole, ole ole ole." The official song for the World Cup 2010 has been released and guess who's singing it ...
The song, titled "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)," will be performed at the South African closing ceremony before the final game on July 11, but the song will be available for download on May 11.
And the lyrics are so appropriate:
The pressure's on; you feel it
But you got it all; believe it
When you fall get up oh, oh
And if you fall get up eh, eh
It's the perfect soundtrack for the World Cup. Just listening to the song, I can picture a breakaway at midfield from Donovan, pulling a Maradona move, he shoots, he scores, GOOOAAAALLL!!! Makes me want to dust off my cleats and kick a ball around.
Sorry, totally geeking out on soccer ... clearly I'm excited for the World Cup.
Listen to the song and tell me what you think!
