Sorry, Neymar: Der inoffizielle WM-Song

Katerstimmung vor der Fußball-WM in Brasilien: Der Frust vieler Brasilianer ist groß, Datafolha zufolge lehnen 80 Prozent der Befragten die Fußball-WM in Brasilien gerade ab – vor allem, weil Milliarden in Stadien und andere WM-Vorbereitungen fließen, während das Geld im Bildungs- und Gesundheitssektor, bei der Sanierung der Favelas oder im öffentlichen Transport fehlt.

Der Musiker Edu Krieger hat dieses Gefühl nun in seinem Song “Desculpe Neymar” (Tut mir leid, Neymar) beschrieben, der jetzt schon ein inoffizieller WM-Titelsong ist und sich über soziale Netzwerke rasant verbreitet. Am Anfang des Tracks wird eine Begrüßung des brasilianischen Superkickers Neymar eingespielt, der die Welt in Brasilien zur WM willkommen heißt  – Edu Krieger besingt danach die Gründe, warum er diesmal nicht für Neymar (und die WM) applaudieren wird.

That would also be the conclusion drawn from a song released by respected Rio musician Edu Krieger, which has become an internet success. In Desculpe Neymar (sorry Neymar), Krieger expresses that on this occasion he will not be cheering on Brazil’s poster boy and his team-mates. “We can’t be real champions,” he sings, “spending more than 10 billion…we have beautiful and monumental stadiums while schools and hospitals are on the verge of collapse.”

Accompanied just by his guitar, the song is rooted in sorrow rather than anger. “I’ve always been a fan of the national team,” he explained in an interview, “but I don’t feel comfortable supporting the side this time.

“I think the way we’ve organised the World Cup could not have been worse, especially bearing in mind what was promised and what has in fact been done. This song is a lament that I don’t feel the enthusiasm I’d like to have in relation to the event.”
