EA's FIFA 09 Soundtrack Features Wales' Own Tom Jones 42 music artists. 21 countries. No, it's not some giant worldwide hunger relief concert, it's EA's official soundtrack for FIFA Soccer 09, and it has international flavor oozing from ever pore. How international are we talking? How about Spain's Macaco? Iceland's Jakobinarina? How about Wales' favorite son, Mr. Tom Jones, ladies and gentlemen? Yes, he's Welsh. I didn't know either, but I suppose the folks in Wales keep that sort of thing pinned to their refrigerator. Ice box. Whatever. Of course Junkie XL had to remix "Feels Like Music" to make it a bit more palatable for the kids, but if that doesn't sit well with the Welsh they've also got Duffy's "Mercy" to help represent the land of...Welsh things. Hit the jump for the full soundtrack listing, and Go Wales!
