Music has been an essential part of the world cup ever since its 1962 edition in Chile. Since then, we’ve been blessed with then-cheesy-but-now classic tracks from the likes of Ricky Martin, Wyclef Jean, and Shakira.

Here is every official anthem of the world cup (more than one song per edition since the 1990s) for your listening pleasure.

May the poorest country win!
