I only just realised that Coca Cola and Pepsi both had promotional themes that were rivalling the official theme for airplay...wow

I say Coca Cola won: I loved Knaan's song. Heard Kes d Band do a socaish version of it that was really good, and started wondering if we had any songs out there that would make a great world cup theme if we were hosting the Cup tomorrow ("fighter" doesn't count - too team specific)

ps Zeppo wasn't Toni Braxton with Il Divo in 06?
I didn't even realise there was a theme song in 2002 - don't really like Anastasia anyway

Hot Hot Hot was the theme in the '86 cup. Socaish enough? Perhaps just not Trini enough  ;D
see above for Machel's mix of knaan's song.





Hot Hot Hot is one of the most reconizable Soca songs on the planet. Next is Who let the dogs out. Actually in the Spain WC in 82, SIN(Spanish International Network) now Univision was playing Hot Hot Hot as their theme song. That tune and quite a few soca songs(Conga line, Thunder, Tiney Winey, Bachelor) were very popular in Central America, Ven and Colombia. Together with dance-hall reggae and soca, they come up with reggae-ton. Don't forget Punta from Belize.

cheap attempt to capitalise on a good song. Much prefer the original, as is the case for Shakira's as well.

didn't know there were theme songs as far back as 1986, didn't know Hot Hot Hot was that old. its definitely soca though, Trini or not.

Isn't the whole waving flag concept out of Trini :devil: I mean majority of the soca chunes is about waving a flag.

One of our entertainers should bring out a waving flag song for the next world cup that incorperates all the countries represented and that could be a hit, esp if TNT qualify ;D

I believe "Hot Hot Hot" was recorded and arranged by top T&T arranger Leston Paul in late 1982 and became a global hit after its exposure during T&T Carnival 1983.
Also recorded and released around the same time was a similar soca groove by Baron called "Feeling It" also arranged by Leston Paul.
Both songs "Hot Hot Hot" & "Feeling It" have a similar chorus line and bass pattern, one says "Feeling hot hot hot" while the other says "Ah feeling it".
There is a dispute about which song was composed first as many songs are written months before being recorded and released but there is no dsiputing which one became the bigger international hit!
