30 Day Song Challenge: Day 7

Challenge: a song that reminds you of a certain event

La Copa de la Vida (The Cup of Life) by Ricky Martin, which is only the GREATEST WORLD CUP SONG OF ALL TIME!! This song brings back floods of only beautiful and fond memories of France 1998 when the nation hosted the World Cup and Brazil was the hot favorite. Even a local psychic predicted that France wouldn’t get far and Brazil was going to be crowned champions. With my father, friends and classmates (matter of fact, everywhere I go, locals were backing Brazil. The Brazilians enjoy a HUGE fanbase here in Trinidad) I felt as if I was the only one throwing my support behind the French. They were the first team I saw playย (practically my first loves) and I was head over heels that I was easily converted to a Les Bleus supporter.

France and Brazil met in the final and the French showed ’em who was theย boss with a sweet 3-0 victory shutting up the world.

As long as I live, and as long as there’s this song, I’ll never ever forget Coupe de Monde 1998. And with Euro 2016 right around the corner, I hope the French can deliver another exciting performance on home soil.

And when you feel the heat. The world is at your feet
No one can hold you down. If you really want it
Just steal your destiny. Right from the hands of fate
Reach for the cup of life. ‘Cause your name is on it
Do you really want it…(YEAH)
Do you really want it…(YEAH)

Tu y yo! Ale, Ale Ale. Go, go, gol! Ale, Ale, Ale
Tonight’s the night, we’re gonna celebrate
The cup of life!!! Ale, Ale, Ale.
