Viva Las Vegas- Elvis Presley
This legendary song sums up the Vegas experience perfectly: “How I wish that there were more / Than the twenty-four hours in the day / Cos even if there were forty more I wouldn’t sleep a minute away / Oh, there’s black jack and poker and the roulette wheel / A fortune won and lost on every deal / All you need’s a strong heart and a nerve of steel / Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas.”
Waking Up in Vegas – Katy Perry
Let’s get the party started! If you notice that the company is getting a bit tired, play them this cheerful song that’s bound to get everybody on their feet and on the dance floor! “Why are these lights so bright / Oh, did we get hitched last night, dressed up like Elvis, / Why, am I wearing your class ring? / Don’t call your mother / Cause now we’re partners in crime/” That’s what you get for waking up in Vegas!
Poker Face- Lady Gaga
Another uplifting song with matching lyrics to bring your party to life: “I wanna roll with him a hard pair we will be / A little gambling is fun when you’re with me (I love it) / Russian Roulette is not the same without a gun / And baby when it’s love, if it’s not rough it isn’t fun, fun.”
Luck Be a Lady – Frank Sinatra
We picked this one because of its lyrics, but almost any song from Sinatra will set the mood and take your party back to the Vegas of the 1960s, defined by his smooth music. “Luck let a gentleman see / How nice a dame you can be /I’ve seen the way you’ve treated other guys you’ve been with /Luck be a lady with me…”
The Gambler – Johnny Cash
For more coolness, add Johnny Cash to the mix, and let him tell the story of a mysterious gambler he meets on the train and the wisdom he learns from him: “You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, / Know when to walk away and know when to run. / You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table. / There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealin’s done.”
Other ideas include: Snake Eyes by Mumford & Sons, Casino Boogie by The Rolling Stones, The Winner Takes it All by ABBA, Ace of Spades by Motorhead… Feel free to improvise!
