Soundtracks to games are not always the first thing you think about, but I, as I’m sure is the case with many other FIFA fans, often find myself singing and humming away to all the songs before long. They are, after all, ridiculously catchy and incredibly hard to ignore when you’re playing!
So here is a list of a dream FIFA 13 soundtrack, with a list of songs that I think would fit perfectly, keeping the upbeat, fun and enjoyable tempo whilst playing FIFA. If this playlist was created, I’m sure people will want to sell their old computer games, as nothing will get you more into the mood than these songs.
Usually there are about 40 songs per game, but many are not in English too, so I’ve chosen just a few:
You Me At Six – Loverboy
Coldplay – Every Teardop Is A Waterfall
Blur – Parklife
Fun – We Are Young
Foals – Cassius
Very upbeat song
Example – Kickstarts
Biffy Clyro – Booooom, Blast & Ruin
Red Hot Chili Peppers – By The Way
U2 – Beautiful Day
Rizzle Kicks – When I Was A Youngster
Blink-182 – First Date
Calvin Harris ft. Kelis – Bounce
Stereophonics – Have A Nice Day
Sum 41 – In Too Deep
The Vaccines – If You Wanna
30 Seconds To Mars – Closer To The Edge
Good Charlotte – The Anthem
Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks
All of these songs, in my eyes, would be amazing additions to the game, pumping you up before getting started! With a mix of Brit-Rock, combined with some catchy Pop-Punk and essential dance tunes, these songs would definitely grab everyone’s attention.
The soundtrack is unbelievably important to any game: it can completely affect your mood, and also affect how you play. You want to be motivated, and this is why this would be such a great soundtrack for FIFA 13.
My personal favourites from the list include U2’s ‘Beautiful Day’, as it was the theme tune to ITV’s ‘The Premiership’ which I watched religiously as a child just getting into football! Also, You Me At Six’s ‘Loverboy’ would be a great song, showcasing one of Britain’s best upcoming rockbands. They’d have people singing in no time!
If you got to create the ideal FIFA 13 soundtrack, what songs would you include?
