#3. Wavin' Flag - K'naan (2010)

For their 2010 World Cup campaign Coca-Cola chose Somali-Canadian artist K'Naan's "Wavin' Flag" from his popular album "Troubadour". The song's lyrics originally talked about growing up in war torn Somalia and aspiring for freedom but was adapted into a "Celebration Mix" to recognize the first World Cup in Africa. Apart from the inspirational lyrics, the song boasted a catchy tune and K'naan's authentic earthy vocals, which made it an instant hit around the world. While this was not the official World Cup theme (the honor of which was given to Shakira's "Waka Waka"), Wavin' Flag was adopted by football fans around the world. The celebratory international version reached the top ten in more than 20 different charts around the world. Many bilingual versions of the Celebration Mix have also been made, for use in each of their respective countries and feature stars like David Bisbal, Nancy Ajram and Jacky Cheung. These versions have gone on to become hits of their own, which goes to show why this song is one of the best World Cup songs of all time.
