So K’naan’s song “Waving Flag” was rerecorded and used as the official song of the 2010 World Cup. That’s a pretty awesome accomplishment for K’naan. I think it’s a great remake of the song, it has that inspirational African/worldly sound to it, like Lion King, but not as good.  As much as I like this song, nobody does African/worldly beats like Simba.

Here’s another 2010 World Cup song by Shakira, called “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)”. I love music like this, I’ve always liked African beats and Indian music.  Ever since I was a baby I would “coo” to it. Every time I hear Shakira I think of that classic quote from “Whenever, Wherever”: “Lucky that my breasts are small and humble, So you don’t confuse them with mountains”. That’s good writing. Anyway, here’s “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa) below.
