Songs About Gambling & Luck


CardsnDiceSome people got it ….. some people don’t Luck, that is — and hopefully the good kind. Gambling can take many different forms. Could even be the destination of a road trip to the nearest casino, or off to the track to wager on the thoroughbreds, or simply over to your friend or co-workers house for the weekly poker night. The following list of songs are split into two groups. The first group features songs with any form of the word “gamble” in the title. Also included are words that reference types of gambling such as playing cards, card games such as poker or blackjack, dice, or the mention of Las Vegas.  The second group of songs feature songs with “luck” or lucky” in the title. Also included here are reference words such as fortune. This gives you a decent amount of songs from many different genres of music and almost a century timeline to compile a playlist for so you can take with you to your next gambling opportunity. So whether you’re headed to Atlantic City, Las Vegas or an Indian Casino, maybe the nearest sports book, a poker tournament at the local card room, to the track for the horse races, or the Saturday night poker game at your buddy’s house, there’s sure to be some great “gambling” songs or “luck” songs on this list that can get you pumped up before arriving at your vice of choice and remember — not all luck is necessarily good :P

Without sounding redundant — Good Luck :)
