The best songs that you surely remember from your matches in FIFA

A tradition that lasts more than two decades

FIFA has achieved something that seemed impossible for a video game: simply by listening to a musical theme we move mentally back in time, until that moment when we turned on our PlayStation (the first) to play a few games with friends who had come home (online multiplayer was still in its infancy). If you have pressed play in the video that you have just above, it is impossible that when listening to the chords of I Get No Downplayed by Chumbawamba, you were not able to travel until the summer of 1998 and that FIFA World Cup celebrating the World Cup in France. The moments before a world championship that, in the case of the Spanish team, was a small disaster.

But the first song that FIFA had, you have to go look for it a few months ago, until the fall of 1997 when Electronic Arts introduced the world to its FIFA 98 that, in our country, was going to have Raúl on the cover, the first of a series in which the main Spanish soccer players of the time appeared, such as Guardiola, Morientes or Mendieta. Until FIFA 97, EA Sports designed global covers by markets (Europe in our case) and the last one before the arrival of the man from Madrid was David Ginola. Well, in that PlayStation title, Song 2 by Blur was the theme chosen to welcome us in FIFA 98. Who does not remember?

That decision would mark the course of the franchise, although at first the relevance of the game was not enough enough to interest the artists but, above all, the record companies. If Electronic Arts wanted to take advantage of the success of a song, it had to go through the box at prices pre crash MP3, although over the years that relationship was reversed and from its explosion during the last decade of the franchise, thanks to the improvement of the gameplay experience, the multiplayer and eSports phenomenon and, above all, the FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT ), many companies rushed to place their most promising artists, and some consecrated ones who needed a boost, to be part of each of the FIFA that have been arriving on the market punctually in autumn.

How many songs fit in a FIFA?

As we say, evolution has been progressive and while in the first FIFA 98 we only reached 9 musical themesjust ten years later to FIFA 08 Electronic Arts already had a total of 22 included. The growth since then has been progressive and, at times, exponential, and proof of this are the figures that are handled with the latest installments. So for example with FIFA 18 the radio of the game added a total of 46 different songs from leading artists and groups while in FIFA 22 with Volta and all, and Mbappé on the cover already fully unleashed (worldwide), that number has ballooned to 122.

FIFA 19for example, reduced (compared to FIFA 18) quantity to 41 subjects; FIFA 20 increased them again to 51 and FIFA 21which hit stores in the fall of 2020, stayed at 52. Therefore, Electronic Arts’ decision to make such a brutal jump in the number of songs with FIFA 22 marks the path of a video game franchise that, as we say, It is no longer a simple football game to transcend the cultural sphere. And we refer to the tests.
