On a World Cup of Songs – The Did Not Qualify

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been posting my favorite songs from each of the countries that qualified for the 2014 World Cup.

With the tournament starting tomorrow, I’ll finish up that project by choosing my favorite songs among those countries that did not qualify. Qualification for the World Cup happens by continental regions: North/Central America and Caribbean, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania. I will choose one song from a country that did not qualify from each continental region.


Africa: South Africa

Mafikizolo – “Khona”

Asia: India

Avial – “Karukara”

Europe: Sweden

Opeth – “Harvest”

North America: Canada

Corneille – “Viens”

Oceania: New Zealand

The Naked and Famous – “Hearts Like Ours”

South America: Venezuela

Los Amigos Invisibles – “El disco anal”

Alright, that does it for music videos. Phew.
