"Boom" is a song by American recording artist Anastacia, which served as the official song for the 2002 FIFA World Cup. Co-written with and produced by Glen Ballard, it was released as a single in Europe, Australia, and Asia in June 2002. The song was included on The Official Album of the 2002 FIFA World Cup, as well as on the collectors edition of Anastacia's second studio album, Freak of Nature.

In 2014 MTV Italy declared it as the country's most favorite World Cup song [1]

Music[edit]

Directed by Marcos Siega, the music video for "Boom" was shot in London in 2002. It was later included on her first DVD, The Video Collection. In the beginning of the video, a car is driving along and the radio plays "One Day in Your Life" in the background. Suddenly the car stops and a light flash is seen in the sky. Then the song starts and Anastacia is performing it on a small stage in front of a crowd. During the video, several people get beamed up to this party, some of them being soccer players.
