The world readies itself for soccer madness (football to the rest of the world)

The FIFA World Cup kicks off tomorrow in Germany (mere hours from now, given the time change) and I am all over that action. See, I have joined c’s Blogger’s Paradise peeps on the ESPN Pick ‘Em site. I have logged my initial predictions – and between you and me, I have NO IDEA (really) what I am doing. But I am good guesser. And I can trash talk with the best of them, so no one will ever suspect.

Here is some mood music for the occasion: British band Embrace wrote the official anthem for this year’s games. Although some scoffed, it is pretty dang triumphal sounding — only occasionally lapsing into cheesy — and the Oakenfold remix is even more booty-shakin-in-the-stands.

World At Your Feet (Oakenfold Radio Remix) – Embrace

Let the games begin.

  • It isn’t terrible but we’ve had better! On the other hand, we have much, much worse World Cup songs out at the moment. I won’t mention names for fear you might actually seek them out….

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
