The Ultimate Playlist
Remember the AskGamblers Mixtape for Casino Players we made in 2015? This time, we’ve included some of the songs that you guys suggested in our forum and we've made a few changes to the final compilation. Here’s the ultimate playlist of yours and our 10 favourites:
#1 Shape of my Heart by Sting
We’re all aware of the fact that our gambling behaviour can be influenced by certain types of music and that's because online gambling and music go hand in hand. So why don’t you start playing your preferred games with one of everyone’s favourite songs by Sting called “The Shape of my Heart”?
#2 Viva Las Vegas by Elvis Presley
As soon as you start playing the second song from our playlist “Viva Las Vegas”, you’ll probably picture a huge casino and a great gaming atmosphere. Performed by the legendary Elvis Presley, the song itself brings the glamour of the city and the beat will get you in the mood for a serious gameplay.
#3 The Ace of Spades by Motorhead
Ok, the next song is loaded with some great gambling verses like "The pleasure is to play, makes no difference what you say, I don't share your greed, the only card I need is the Ace of Spades" will definitely set you in the right mood for hitting some winning combinations. It was inspired by slot machines that the lead singer Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister played in London pubs.
#4 The Jack by AC/DC
The forth song on our list will give you some adrenaline boost, for sure. It goes like this - “She gave me the queen, she gave me the king, she was wheelin' and dealin', just doin' her thing, she was holdin' a pair, but I had to try…” Sounds familiar? The song is called The Jack by AC/DC and there’s no way you can skip it.
#5 The Gambler by Kenny Rogers
Performed by the legendary country singer Kenny Rogers, The Gambler song is full of some gambling advices that are relevant today even though it was released 40 years ago. Here’s how it goes… “If you're gonna play the game, boy you gotta learn to play it right, you've got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, and know when to run.”
#6 Tumbling Dice by The Rolling Stones
Moving on to number 6. One of our favourite songs on the list is Tumbling Dice, written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. It tells the story of a gambler who can’t remain faithful to any woman. Being released in the 70s and featuring a blues boogie-woogie rhythm, the song was and still is one of the greatest singles of all time.
#7 Poker Face by Lady Gaga
Although Poker Face song is more about the game of romance rather than the game of poker, the catchy refrain that starts with “Can't read my, no he can't read my poker face” should remind us of winning at the tables. The song achieved a worldwide success, topping the charts in the USA, the UK, Australia, Canada and several European countries.
#8 Huck’s Tune by Bob Dylan
Number eight on our list is about the risks of poker, money, and relationships, which are precisely what the movie “Lucky You” is all about. Does it ring a bell? That’s right, the song is called Huck’s Tune and is performed by Bob Dylan. Each of us can all relate to lines " You push it all in, and you've no chance to win, you play 'em on down to the end." Play the song and you’ll enjoy more than four minutes of Bob Dylan.
#9 The House of the Rising Sun by The Animals
Our list wouldn’t be complete without the song - The House of the Rising Sun by The Animals. Everybody knows the famous lines ”My mother, she was a tailor, sewed these new blue jeans, my father was a gamblin' man way down in New Orleans”. This single had a major success and made it to the top ten songs on mainstream rock radio stations in the USA. Likewise, the hit was featured in the video game Guitar Hero Live.
#10 Luck be a Lady by Frank Sinatra
We’ve made it to end of our playlist. The last song of our choice is about a gambler who hopes that he will win a bet, the outcome of which will decide whether he is able to save his relationship with the girl of his dreams.
