#1. David Guetta ft. Zara Larsson - This One's For You



1: Correct: Riser, Mack, King Rollo
0: No Answer: Suedehead2

We kick off with a fairly well-known track and probably the most recent mainstream sporting hit, This One's For You. It was the Official Soundtrack of the 2016 Euros but of course stuck around for absolutely ages because the chart climate was awful back then oops. Three out of four getting this which is a good start!

#2. Samir & Viktor - Put Your Hands Up For Sverige (ft. Anis Don Demina)



0: some gaelic jolity Suedehead2
0: No Answer Mack, Riser, King Rollo

I thought this one might be a bit more difficult but with only four entries this was very unlikely to get a correct answer as it's not that well known! It was a Swedish (surprise!) song for the 2018 World Cup, pretty much all in Swedish, but it was quite a tune with a fab drop as you've heard, sadly it's not Gaelic Suedey but I can see why, and if it was it would probably have been better guessed!

I thought it was Zara Larsson so I just put 'Zara Larsson football song' into the youtube search.

#3. Keida & Tian Winter - We Are the West Indies



0: Sean Kingston Mack
0: No Answer Riser, King Rollo, Suedehead

The first non-football song, this is a cricket song representing, of course, the West Indies. Of course this is more well known for representing moi in the BJSC but clearly not well-known enough for anyone to remember it kink.gif

#4. Jim Noir - Eanie Meany



0: No Answer Mack, Suedehead2, Riser, King Rollo

I thought there might be the odd Jim Noir fan like me stumbling into this quiz but it was not to be sad.gif This was one of his biggest successes and was used by Adidas as part of their 2006 World Cup promotion in case it sounds familiar!

#5. 10cc - Dreadlock Holiday



1: Correct Mack, Suedehead2, King Rollo
0: Bob Marley? Riser

I DON'T LIKE CRICKET... I LOVE IT! Continuing with the cricket-and-football theme we have 10cc with their funky little track Dreadlock Holiday. This is pretty well-known and gets three out of four, and I can totally see the Bob Marley confusion Jordan!

#6. Eric Clapton - Swing Low Sweet Chariot



0: Bob Marley? Riser
0: No Answer Suedehead2, Mack, King Rollo

Thought this might get a few correct responses! A song which has been around since the start of time and is also sung by many a rugby union fan (or so Wikipedia tells me). Also not Bob Marley sadly, although I get the similarity between this and the 10cc track.

#7. Hooverphonic - Visions



0: No Answer Mack, King Rollo, Suedehead2, Riser

Have you all forgotten the Sports Forum Song Contest that quickly?! This did relatively well in it as well, clearly not that memorable oops. Poor Mattias. (sporting connection = performed at the 2000 Euros if you were wondering)

#8. Celine Dion - The Power of the Dream



0: Whitney Houston - One Moment In Time Mack
0: Sounds like a Whitney Houston intro,I don't think it's One Moment In Time but I'll guess that one as it's connected to sport King Rollo
0: No Answer Suedehead2, Riser

I mean we did get some answers for this one, but the wrong answers kink.gif Not Whitney sadly, but Celine. This was performed at the opening ceremony of the 1996 Olympics, if the thumbnail hadn't given that away already.

#9. Avicii - Broken Arrows



0.5: Avicii? Riser
0: No Answer Mack, Suedehead2, King Rollo

Finally somebody gets some points! cheer.gif This is probably the most tenuous link to sport in the whole things because the song isn't really about archery but the music video documents the rise of an American high jumper (presumably Dick Fosbury but with a different name here). This is why it pays off to guess!

#10. Declan McKenna - Brazil



1: Correct Riser
0: The La's- There She Goes Mack
0: I should get this one Suedehead2
0: No Answer King Rollo

Another one with a correct answer, this only actually mentions football a few times but the whole song is a massive metaphor criticising the hosting of the World Cup in Brazil and the effect on the Brazilians as they hosted. And who doesn't love a bit of Declan?




That's it for tonight guys, we'll recommence tomorrow evening!

#11. Walk Off the Earth – Taekwondo



0: Jason Derulo Mack
0: Kaiser Chiefs Suedehead2
0: No Answer King Rollo, Riser

Another one with no correct responses, however this was another fairly tenuous link to sport, as I doubt the lyrics of this song really represent what the sport of Taekwondo is really about. Nevertheless Walk Off the Earth are a brilliant band so it was a pleasure to include them in this. It is sadly neither the Kaiser Chiefs nor Jason Derulo however the fact that one song can prompt both of these guesses is something.

#12. Yello – The Race



1: Correct Mack, King Rollo, Suedehead2
0: No Answer Riser

This brought back a little bit of nostalgia for me as I was searching for potential songs to include in this as I loved it when it was little, my favourite song on the Eighties Mix CD my dad owned. It even has car sounds to help us know it’s about cars. This was Yello's highest charting hit in the UK.

#13. Faithless – Muhammad Ali



1: Correct King Rollo
0: Jamiroquai? Riser
0: No Answer Mack, Suedehead2

We've had a Lounge thread on songs naming other artists, but here's one naming a sportsperson! This is one of many charting hits by Faithless, named after the second greatest sportsperson of all time (according to Buzzjack) and peaked at #29 in the UK.

I recommend the full 13 minute extended version of The Race to anyone who only knows the single version.

#14. Rocky Dawuni - African Soccer Fever



0: No Answer Mack, King Rollo, Riser, Suedehead2

I thought there might be some fellow FIFA fans taking part in this but alas no! This was the only distinctly football-related song on the soundtrack (barring Wavin' Flag of course but that would've been too easy wink.gif ) and was a remake of the Ghanaian artist's previous song 'African Reggae Fever' which was exactly the same but with the word 'reggae' instead of 'soccer'. It also samples a traditional African song at the start but I couldn't tell you which one sorry.
