On this week’s pod, we launched a search for a song for USA Brazil 2014. Spurred into action by the news of Mexico’s World Cup single (“Voy a Ganar" recorded with rock band Moderatto) we invite all budding songsmiths to send us lyrics that could inspire the nation to believe.  

The World Cup song has a rich tradition in football history. Long before "The Super Bowl Shuffle” was even a twinkle in Jim McMahon’s eye, soccer teams from around the world made the act of recording a crude yet infuriatingly catchy single a sporting tradition. Here are four classic examples

  1. Rod Stewart and Scottish World Cup squad: “Ole Ola” (1978)
  2. England 1982: “This Time We’ll Get It Right” (PS They did not)  
  3. German World Cup Squad and the Village People: “Far Away in America
  4. New Order and England 1990: “World In Motion

The competition is open to all GFOPs. A panel of experts will choose the winner. You simply have to write lyrics that fit a well known pop tune, showtune, or classic of any style – from country to hip hop, or even write your own original composition.

We have remarkable prizes for the winners including the world’s only Men In Blazers customized XBOX 1 Courtesy of EA Sports and a limited edition Men In Blazers T-Shirt (Only five exist in the world) from our friends at Bumpy Pitch.
