Need more World Cup music? This band has just released 100 soccer songs, each about 30 seconds long
Here’s a sample. Here are some titles:
From Russia with (Hetero) Love
I’m Leaving on a Standard Class Aer Lingus
I’m Supporting Pussy Riot
World Cup Widows
Spot the Player on Coke
The Ballad of the Poisoned Referee
World Cup Snacks
Slave Labour Stadiums
Ra Ra Ras Pootun
World in Motion Was So Overrated
The Pocket Gods’ material is available on all streaming platforms. Quite brilliant, really. Since Spotify pays out for a full stream of a song after 30 seconds has elapsed, why bother writing songs longer than that? Good point, really. We first hear about The Pocket Gods when they found a loophole in Spotify’s payment system.
The result was four records called 100X30, each featuring 100 songs with running times just over 30 seconds. The Pocket Gods’ latest endeavor is the fifth 100X30 volume with every track focusing on some aspect of the World Cup.
