Imagine a world where there is no music. It is incredibly difficult to even fathom a concept as such. Music adds flavor to our mundane lives and invigorates us with a renewed zest for life. It is a natural mood-enhancer and builds the atmosphere of any place to the desired effect in the matter of a few minutes. Such is the power of music! No matter what mood you are in, you will always find tunes and songs that can accompany you and act as your true and humble companion. No wonder, restaurants, amusement parks and entertainment houses use the psychology of music to grab the attention of their target crowd. If you have ever frequented a casino house, you shall know what we are talking about. These entertainment houses play music that can elicit the desired consumer behavior and very subtly so. The player shall not even know how their behavior is being determined by the music that is being played in the background, thus, putting the casinos in a profitable situation. The same goes for restaurants and amusement parks. They play just the kind of music that can help keep the customers within the confines of their business space. 

Keeping these observations in mind, on a very similar vein, we have decided to talk a bit about all the pop songs that draw on the lines of gambling and can unleash the potential gambler in you. You might have already heard some of these songs, while the others might be entirely new to you. A fan of gambling or not, exploring new genres of music makes for a productive way to spend time, so why not dedicate an entire article to it? 

Poker Face by Lady Gaga:

Poker Face is that one song that perhaps every single soul who has seen the rise of this generation has heard at some point or the other. As eccentric as the singer had set her image to be back then, Poker Face has several references to the classic game of Poker (of course, the name itself gives it all away). The album that this song is a part of, had shot Lady Gaga to fame and it still remains one of the most widely played songs in casinos, pubs and restaurants alike. Therefore, if you needed any inspiration in shuffling that deck real nice, play this song and enjoy some fun time playing a hand or two at Poker. 

Ace of Spades by Motorhead:

The song was released way back in 1980 and has ever since been classified as the Motorhead anthem. It does not really matter if you are a metalhead or not, this song has the potential to notch up the excitement of playing cards at any given point in the day. There are references to several casino jargons if you pay attention to the lyrics closely, and it is enough to set the tune for you to try your hands at one or more card games. And if you want a holistic feel of the casinos while staying at your house, just play the song in the background while you sign up to and play the various casino games offered on the site.

Spin Me Round by Dead or Alive:

The song that was released in 1985, takes heavily after the themes of the slot games and roulette. Therefore, if you are a fan of these two casino games, you shall develop an instant liking for the song. The lyrics are as relevant as they can get when it comes to exploring the themes of gambling, especially that of slots and roulette. The song charted at #1 back in those days and is still a gambler’s delight to this day, due to the kind of feel it confers upon anyone who is interested in gambling.

Wrapping It Up:

We have mentioned the three best songs across timelines that people still listen to and appreciate them for the quality they bring to their gambling experience. There are, of course, more such songs that you might want to explore. But the kind of feel these songs bring, whether you are playing at a land-based casino or spending time with your family and friends over a few card games at home, is one of a kind and something that every passionate gambler must experience once in their lives.
