Voices From The FIFA World Cup
by Various Artists
Released: Jun 2006
Label: SYCO MUSIC/COLUMBIA RECORDS
On this release a mix of contemporary radio hits represents the brutal battles, riotous fans and stickler referees of the FIFA World Cup. The comp combines tearjerkers like Annie Lennox's "Why" with heroic anthems ("One Moment in Time") and appreciative odes to the people we adore ("Just the Way You Are"). The tournament's official song merges the operatic vocals of Il Divo with Toni Braxton's silky soulfulness in a triumphant tune that will neatly accompany any game-winning goal.
