Real Madrid’s Vaguely Militaristic La Decima Anthem

The song hearkens back to a time of high-stepping soldiers, arms races, and a constant, paralyzing fear that your friends and neighbors may be spies for the regime. Only it was written in the year 2014, and it has a music video that features images of great Madrid moments as Sergio Ramos sings passionately and Gareth Bale stumbles through the verses because he can’t speak Spanish. The good news is that after the Champions League celebrations die down and La Decima fades into the background, Gareth Bale will have time to work on his Spanish while most of his teammates are in Brazil. The bad news is that this video isn’t a five-part series, so enjoy this one.
