Gearing Up for World Cup 2014: La Copa de la Vide (Cup Of Life)

June 10th, 2014

World Cup 2014 is almost here and I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!

I will be incorporating World Cup-related music into my Zumba classes all World Cup long (June 12 – July 13, 2014). The fourth song I’m including is an oldie but a goodie from FIFA World Cup 1998 and it is La Copa de la Vide (Cup of Life) by Ricky Martin. This is the “Ricky Martin World Cup Song.” La Copa de la Vide is actually pre- “Living la Vida Loca” Ricky Martin. You’ll probably know it once you hear it, but you may not have known it was the official song of 1998 FIFA World Cup:

“Tú y yo
ale, ale, ale
Go, go, go
ale, ale, ale”

Or in the English version:

“Here we go
ale, ale, ale
Go, go, go
ale, ale, ale”

Do yourself a favor and watch Ricky’s sweet hips in this video and then incorporate La Copa de la Vide into your June and July Zumba playlists!
