Nut flush

In the spirit of Dawn Summer’s ‘Hookers and Strippers’ playlist on her ipod, I’m putting together a ‘Gambling’ playlist. Here’s what I have so far:

1. Have a Lucky Day- Morphine
2. The Gambler- Kenny Rogers
3. Atlantic City- Bruce Springsteen (not exactly about gambling but he does cash out all his money and heads to AC)

I’m sure there are a million others so help me out.

Three songs does not a playlist make.

Hence the post asking for help.

Also not really about gambling.

That’s the last time I comment. You suck.

VIVA LAS VEGAS!!!!
I recommend the version by the Dead Kennedys from the Fear & Loathing soundtrack.

Oooh I got one. Bob Dylan’s ‘Ramblin’ Gambling Willie’.
And I was about to say Allman Brother’s ‘Gambling Man’. But silly me. It’s ‘Ramblin’ Man’.
I think I just pulled a Dawn Summers.

The Gambler by Kenny Rogers.
“Roll the Bones”, “Face Down”, “You Bet Your Life” by Rush.
While You See a Chance by Steve Winwood.

How is that a “Dawn Summers?” From what I’ve read, she is never wrong and does not make mistakes.

Lucky Man by Emerson, Lake, Palmer (there, that should make up for jumping the gun on the Kenny tune).

God, I hate to admit I know this song, but how about Duran Duran’s “I Take the Dice”?

What can I say? I had a hopeless crush on a girl who was a big Duran Duran fan. Figured, uhhhm, that liking Duran Duran might help the cause.
I should’ve just started wearing skirts, too.

This thread of comments is just too funny to ignore.
My five cents.
“Luck be a Lady” Frank Sinatra
“Pokerface” Ron Hawkins and the Rusty Nails
“Cash is King” Ike Reilly Assassination
“Hot Hot Hot!” The Cure
“Rich Girl” Gwen Stefani
And somehow I think “How can we be lovers if we can’t be friends” should go on this mix. But I am not sure how. :)

It’s a Dawn Summers cuz you think you know lyrics but you don’t. Would you like me to direct you to your post about that?

Damn, Shawn…props on the Rush picks!
Color of Money – Eric Clapton, The Angel and the Gambler – Iron Maiden,
Lucky In Love – Mick Jagger, Mississippi Queen – Mountain, Against All
Odds – Phil Collins (I know, I know…but it is about an emotional
gamble), Devil Went Down To Georgia – Charlie Daniels (I met him, a
really nice guy), Shape Of My Heart – Sting, Little Queen Of Spades -
Robert Johnson…that’s about all I can think of right now…

Both are Rat Pack classics
