Jennifer Lopez will not be performing at this Thursday’s opening ceremony for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. She was due to sing the official Fifa World Cup song “We Are One (Ole Ola)” with Pitbull and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte.

Check out the video.

To compensate perhaps, those veteran British funny men, Monty Python have released their own unofficial World Cup song, “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.”

Eric Idle has composed some new lyrics for the song which is has become an anthem at British soccer stadiums: "When you're in The World Cup, and all your hopes are up, and everybody wants their team to win. Then they go and let you down, and come slinking back to town, it's time for this daft song to begin."

Talking of unofficial soccer songs, here’s maybe the best ever with the Lightning Seeds from ’98. Unless you know different?
