If you follow the FIFA World Cup, you may already know that every four years, the organization commissions an official anthem to represent the event. These multilingual songs are then used as warm-ups to the event, in addition to serving as a little momento from the big day.

But sometimes the songs become popular hits — and we're not even aware of their connection to fútbol. Here are four of the most popular, starting with...

#1 - Pitbull featuring Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte, We Are One (Ole Ola)

MLB Meets Taylor Swift in Twitter Sing-Along

MLB image

Things got a little crazy yesterday on Twitter, at least when it came to MLB and some of its teams. Someone over at the MLB headquarters must have been jamming along to Taylor Swift's "Love Story" because all it took was tweeting one lyric to the song before a sing-along began between the MLB Twitter account and the official accounts for teams like the Rangers, the Reds, the Brewers, and the Dodgers. Who knew they were all such big Taylor Swift fans?

Here's how it all got started...

Highlights from the 2014 Tony Awards

Tonys image

The 2014 Tonys happened last night, with Neil Patrick Harris NOT hosting for the first time in three years. (Crazy, right?) If you missed the awards show (because you were too busy watching "Game of Thrones" or catching up on "Orange is the New Black"), here are some highlights!

#1 - Hedwig, Gentleman's Guide nabbed the most awards

Hedwig and the Angry Inch and A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder came away as the clear winners, each earning four awards last night. A Raisin in the Sun was just behind them with three awards, while All the Way, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, The Bridges of Madison County, Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill, and Twelfth Night rounded out the "multiple award" brigade with two each.

Father's Day Gift Guide image

The countdown to Father's Day is on! How will you be showing dad you care? This Father's Day, why not get creative with your gift? Tools, ties, barbecue sets, and sports memorabilia are nice... but it's also nice to give dad (or the father-figure in your life) a chance to spend an evening out — either with you, with friends, with his wife, or with whoever he wants!

Not to brag or anything, but our Father's Day Gift Guide is a great place to get started with some ideas. To help you decide among the thousands of live shows, we've hand-selected events we think any father would love, in sports, concerts, and theater. Is dad a baseball fan? Maybe some MLB tickets would do the trick! If he loves rock music, maybe he'd have fun at an Aerosmith show. The possibilities are (almost) endless.

Once you've picked your tickets for dad, be sure to visit our Gift Notes page and take advantage of our free gift notes! This way, if the tickets don't arrive in time for Father's Day, you can still have something special to let dad know you were thinking of him.

There's only one week until Father's Day, so get shopping!

Orange is the New Black

Season two of "Orange is the New Black" was released today, and many are scrambling to binge on the entire season so they can avoid spoilers. As with all Netflix-produced shows, once a season is up, you can watch the entire thing all at once. It's a great feature if you want to watch the season at your leisure, without waiting week to week for new episodes; it's not-so-great when the internet ruins everything. A helpful reminder: when asking your friends if they've seen the new season, a simple "Have you watched the new 'Orange is the New Black' episodes yet?" will suffice. Don't say, "Oh my gosh, have you seen the episode where Piper dies?!" (BTW, Piper probably doesn't die.) It'll be tough navigating the internet spoiler-free for the next few weeks, so good luck out there.
