The World Cup In Music Videos (Part 1)

by Emilio Pérez Miguel on June 16, 2010

Soccer mania is sweeping the world, and today my country (Uruguay) managed to beat the team playing host (that’s South Africa, in case soccer is not your thing) 3 – 0. Time for a quick musical revision of the event so far.

First of all, this is the Black Eyed Peas performing at the opening of the tournament.

Shakira and Juanes did also perform that night, and they were very well-received too.

A Fellow Playing His Vuvuzela? Good Fun. 80,000 Fellows Playing Their Vuvuzelas? The Cue For The Four Horsemen To Come Charging.

Moving on, this is the “Vuvuzela Sucks Song”. A must-see for people who ardently believe the charming African instrument is robbing the game of its essential atmosphere. And I guess fans of Star Wars will also grow to love it.

Finally (and in case you haven’t seen it yet)  this is the official video for the World Cup anthem by K’naan.

It’s quite good, but it doesn’t hold a candle to this one. Ah, the early ’90s…

Which one do you prefer? Leave a comment below!
