I like to listen to some good music on my way to the casino, especially songs that have to do with gambling. Trying to put together a CD. Anyone have any recommendations?

Here is probably my favorite: The Shape of the Heart (Sting)

Not what I would define as a "gambling song" but Katy Perry's "Waking Up in Vegas" actually inspired me to take a trip back out to Vegas after a few years off. It's not a great song, but it's catchy and the music video is fun.

Despite the very bad advice of never counting your money, I like Kenny Rogers "Gambler".

And no list can be complete with a version of "Viva Las Vegas".

How about the Little River Band song..... 'Lonesome Loser' ?

My mistake........ you requested gambling songs to listen to on your way to the casino.......... not when leaving the casino.

Mr Mudd & Mr Gold

(The link is Townes Van Zandt performing the song, then explaining how he wrote it. Worth the 3:44, IMO.)

The wicked king of clubs awoke
it was to his queen turned
his lips were laughing as they spoke
his eyes like bullets burned
the sun's upon a gambling day
his queen smiled low and blissfully
let's make some wretched fool to play
plain it was she did agree

He send his deuce down into diamond
his four to hart, and his trey to spade
three kings with their legions come
preparations soon where made
they voted club the days commander
gave him an army face and number
all but the outlaw jack of diamonds
and the aces in the sky

He give his sevens first instructions
spirit me a game of stud
stakes unscarred by limitation
'tween a man named Gold and man named Mud
Club filled Gold with greedy vapors
'til his long, green eyes did glow
Mud was left with the sighs and trembles
watching his hard earned money go

Flushes fell on Gold like water
tens they paired and paired again
but the aces only flew through heaven
and the diamond jack called no man friend
The diamond queen saw Muds ordeal
began to think of her long lost son
fell to her knees with a mother's mercy
prayed to the angels every one

The diamond queen, she prayed and prayed
and the diamond angel filled Muds hole
the wicked king of clubs himself
fell in face down in front of Gold
now three kings come to Clubs command
but the angels from the sky did ride
three kings up on the streets of Gold
three fireballs on the muddy side

The club queen heard her husband's call
but Lord that queen of diamond's joy
when the outlaw in the heavenly hall
turned out to be a wandering boy
Now Mud he checked and Gold bet all
and Mud he raised and Gold did call
and the smile just melted off his face
when Mud turned over that diamond ace

Now here's what this story's told
if you feel like Mud you'll end up Gold
if you feel like lost, you'll end up found
so amigo, lay them raises down.

This is a fantastic blues song by Ray Charles. Would make
a great ringtone.

Blackjack

Ah let me tell you people
About this blackjack game
It's caused me nothing but trouble
And I've only myself to blame

Hey hey hey yeah
How unlucky can one man be
Well every quarter I get
Lord, blackjack takes it away from me

My friends don't come around me
Because I've been so blind
I can't even borrow a nickle
Now I've almost lost my mind

Hey hey hey yeah
How unlucky can one man be
Well every quarter I get
Lord, blackjack takes it away from me

I sat there with two tens
I thought I'd have some fun
The dealer hit sixteen with a five
Just enough to make twenty one

Hey hey hey yeah yeah
How unlucky can one man be
Well every quarter I get
Yeah, blackjack takes it away from me

Mrs and I saw Ray Charles, early '90s at Tropicana in AC. He had the big band then. I don't think he played this one, though he should have. It was mostly a greatest hits show, which was fine by us. Nipsy Russell opened.

Sinatra couldn't stand Brando. He called him Mumbles
because he was always fumbling his lines. Brando was
incapable of memorizing, so they wrote his lines everywhere.
Any time you see Brando speak in a movie, he's reading the
line off a cue card, or the ceiling, or even the back of his hand.
And he couldn't sing.

If anybody is familiar with the show "Forbidden Broadway" (in any of its incarnations), the writer and his producer team did an ill-fated production called "Forbidden Hollywood." (I believe there was also a "Forbidden Las Vegas" at one time).

Basically they take songs from shows, or in this case, movies and parody them. One of the tracks was a parody of "You'll Know" from Guys and Dolls, which had "Marlon Brando," portrayed by Jason Graae, singing the ENTIRE SONG OFF KEY! For a good singer, this is THE toughest thing to do.

By the way, if anybody can find a copy of this, let me know. It's still one of my favorites, as the talent on that cast album was the best of all.

If you watch Brando in movies like The Godfather,
he gets very creative in looking around. He's looking
at his next line. In the opening scene in his office,
he looks up a lot because lines are written on the
ceiling. Once they had to be written on a billboard,
in The Wild One, I think. Brando was a good actor,
but somewhat of a mental midget.

Do It Again
Artist: Steely Dan
Album: Do It Again

Do It Again


In the mornin' you go gunnin' for the man who stole your water
And you fire till he is done in but they catch you at the border
And the mourners are all singin' as they drag you by your feet
But the hangman isn't hangin' so they put you on the street

You go back, Jack, do it again, wheels turnin' 'round and 'round
You go back, Jack, do it again

When you know she's no high climber then you find your only friend
In a room with your two timer, but you're sure you're near the end
Then you love a little wild one, and she brings you only sorrow
All the time you know she's smilin', you'll be on your knees tomorrow

Chorus

Guitar Solo
Keyboard Solo

Now you swear and kick and beg us that you're not a gamblin' man;
Then you find you're back in Vegas with a handle in your hand
Your black cards can bring you money so you hide them when you're able
In the land of milk and honey you must put them on the table

Chorus
In a bet, there is a fool and a thief. - Proverb.

"Me and My Uncle"

There is an interesting/amusing story posted here on Wikipedia about how John Phillips wrote this song but was too drunk to remember it. He found out about his authorship when he started receiving royalties from the version that Judy Collins recorded. According to Wiki: "John used to joke that, little by little, with each royalty check, the memory of writing the song would come back to him."

The song, with slightly modified lyrics, was frequently performed by the Grateful Dead. I always liked Judy's version, and here are the "original" lyrics as she sang them, based on the tape that was recording during John's drunkenness:

Quote:

Me and my uncle went riding down
From Colorado, west Texas bound.
And we stopped off in Santa Fe.
It being the point, about half-way.
And besides it was the hottest part of the day.

We led our ponies into a stall.
Went to a bar boys, bought drinks for all.
Two days in the saddle, my body hurt.
It being summer, took off my shirt,
And tried to wash off some of that dusty dirt.

West Texas cowboys, all over town.
With gold and silver, they池e loaded down
Just in from round-up, it seemed a shame.
So my uncle starts a friendly game.
High-low Jacks and the winner takes the game.

From the beginning uncle starts to win
Them Texas cowboys they was mad as sin
Some say he痴 cheating but that can稚 be.
辰os my uncle he's honest as me.
And I'm as honest as a Denver man can be.

One of them cowboys, he starts to draw,
I grabbed a bottle, slapped him on the jaw
I shot another he won't grow old.
In the confusion, uncle grabbed the gold,
And we high-tailed it down to Mexico.

Now God bless cowboys and God bless gold.
God bless my uncle and rest his soul.
He taught me well boys, taught me all I know.
Taught me so well that I grabbed that gold,
And I left him lying there by the side of the road.

How did I ever miss this thread? Good to hear someone else likes Townes. These guys do too (toured with him.) Note: My tag line/signature comes from this song.

Townes' Blues by Cowboy Junkies http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RygINt-6CqM

You're clean as a widow woman's washboard, son,
Stick it in the wind
Put the mountains to your back
The great plains on your grille

Time to take a little spin
Boulder looks like the type of town
That I could spend some time,

But in Houston they got our name in lights
You're clean as a widow woman's washboard, son,
The slab is yours tonight

Townes is in the back lounge
With his hands in his pocket
Pulls out two dice and says, 'Let's get at it'

Salina in the headlights, snake eyes on the floor,
Al drops another twenty, Pete heads for the door,
Springer's feeling lucky, sits down for a spell,
Oklahoma City and he's lost his last bill

Jeff is in a bind waiting on sister hicks
Seven comes a-calling
As we cross on into Texas

Townes is in the back lounge
With a fist full of fives
He says, 'It's a little bit long
But I'm enjoying this ride'

Be careful with the dice
When you're surrounded by others
With boxcars in their eyes
Never count your winnings at hour 23

Of a 24-hour drive
Remember that you're not the one
Calling the tune
That's making those diamonds dance

Or you'll be clean as
A widow woman's washboard, son,
And those are the facts

Townes is in the back lounge cursing at them bones
He says, 'Ain't this fool ever heard of Raton'
Never count your winnings at hour 23 of a 24-hour drive.

Sometimes you need a count if lucky enough to have a backer.

3 times in a row , as I pulled into a dog track parking lot, Viva Las Vegas came on the radio. The key dog I was betting that night lost each time. I hate that song. LOL

Ramblin' Gamblin' Man - Bog Seger

Yeah, gonna tell my tale come on,
come on.
Give a listen.

Cause I was born lonely
down by the riverside.
Learned to spin fortune wheel
and throw dice.
And I was just thirteen
when I had to leave home.
Knew I couldn't stick around,
had to roam.
I ain't good lookin',
but you know I ain't shy.
Ain't afraid to look a girl
in the eye.
So if you need some lovin'
and you need it right away,
just take a little time out
and maybe I'll stay.

Then I got to ramble,
[ramblin' man]
Lord I got to gamble,
[gamblin' man]
Ahh I got to ramble,
[ramblin' man]
And I was born a ramblin' gamblin' man.

I hope you got money,
Sho' gonna need some.
Ain't gonna run on lovin'
and I got to run.
I got to keep movin',
never gonna slow down.
You can have your funky world,
see ya 'round.

I got to ramble,
[ramblin' man]
Yeah I got to gamble,
[gamblin' man]
Ahh I got to ramble,
[ramblin' man]
I was born a ramblin' gamblin' man.

I like to listen to "Born to be wild - Steppenwolf" on the drive down to the Casino.

While at the casino, I see many sexy women hovering over the craps table... this is when I play in my head "Stealers Wheel - Stuck in the middle with you"

But then, after I lose all my money and drive another 25 minutes back home "definitely Kenny Rogers - The Gambler" with the repeat mode turned on.

Funky Dealer.

It's kind of obscure -- I only know about it from a video game soundtrack.

Then segue into "Beautiful Loser" and crank it up! Yeah!!

While you've got the tunes cranked to max, queue up Her Strut, Katmandu, The Fire Down Below, and Get Out of Denver. Pass the bottle dude, and don't bogart!

That might be the best gambling song ever. He talks about Cee-Lo! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkP7QhiumDc

Yeah too bad that video is blocked here in the US because of stupid copyright laws. I just love the sound of dice rolling and chips dropping at the end.

FrGamble,

If you ever do that compilation, I'd like a copy.

I nominate, in addition to a bunch of fine choices above:

This town - Sinatra
The 4 mentioned from Guys and Dolls (except not with Brando singing where applicable; there are good cast albums out there)
House of the Rising Sun - Animals
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

"Still The Same" by Bob Seger. The lyrics say gambling but anyone familiar with this artist would say that the song has a deeper meaning.
Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth. - Mahatma Ghandi
