The Ultimate New Year’s Eve Playlist, Inspired By The Best FIFA Songs Of The Last 10 Years

Looking for the perfect songs for New Years? Love FIFA? Why not combine the two with some of FIFA's best music from '09 to '19.

FIFA has some excellent soundtracks from all over the world with a wide range of genres. Any time I fire up a previous version of the game just for fun, the soundtracks that come on always hit me with a wave of nostalgia.

FIFA 19 was released in September of this year, ten years since the release of the popular (and one of my personal favorites) FIFA 09. In that time, each game's soundtrack has been a fantastic edition. 

For any New Years party, the music has to be immaculate, no matter what genre it is. While the FIFA soundtracks are not New Years themed, there are plenty of songs that could fit right into any celebratory playlist. New Years Eve is just around the corner, so here are some of the best songs from FIFA 09 to FIFA 19 — perfect for your New Years playlist. Before you create a new playlist with all of these songs, I've done it for you! Scroll down to the bottom where you will find a Spotify playlist with every song!

It's hard to not find a great song on any FIFA soundtrack. In the interest of playlist length for New Years parties, I elected to go with five to seven of the best party tracks from each game. It's also important to highlight that the diversity of these tracks makes them great for any New Years party: most, if not all, of the tracks have a faster tempo and any tracks that were more laid back were not chosen.

They may not be the best songs from each FIFA soundtrack, but they hold their own merit as feel-good party songs nonetheless. Something that the FIFA franchise always gets right every year is their soundtrack. No wonder EA hires a playlist creator for their games, because they have to be that good.
