I know that the following track is pretty mainstream (somehow or other it has to be, since it’s the official theme song for the FIFA World Cup South Africa 2010), nevertheless I wanted to share it with you. To my mind it’s simply an indigenous, good song and it perfectly fits the mood of the current World Cup.
Consistent with the host of the FIFA World Cup 2010 I got you even more (mostly electronic) tunes with a nice African touch.
K’Naan – Wavin Flag (Celebration Mix)
K’naan – Wavin Flag (Vanguards Remix)
Addendum: As you may realize, the Celebration Remix contains no political statements compared to the Vanguards Remix. The two versions differ almost entirely in lyrics. Obviously, the first version is solely meant to celebrate the World Cup (as you might guess from the title).
More tunes to celebrate South Africa 2010:
The Very Best – Warm Heart Of Africa (French Fries Remix)
The XX – You’ve Got The Love (Florence & The Machine Cover)(The Very Best Remix)
Lazy Flow – Afro Maniok
Myd – Train To Bamako
Radioclit – Tutule Dance
The Very Best – Rain Dance (Feat. M.I.A.)
Have fun & feel free to comment/bash me for posting such a mainstream track.
