The Player – Kenny Rogers
Taken from his 1978 number one American country album around the same time, this track was originally a Don Schlitz number, but it was Kenny Rogers who made it famous. It’s about a player who meets the narrator on a train and gives him some worldly advice before passing away peacefully in his sleep. Rogers snagged a well-deserved Grammy Award for Best Male Country Vocal Performance for this epic song.
Viva Las Vegas – Elvis Presley
Released in 1964, Viva Las Vegas is one of Elvis’ most popular numbers – despite the fact that he never got to sing it live. He was recorded for his film of the same name in which he co-starred with Ann-Margret. Some of the most famous covers include those by the Dead Kennedys, ZZ Top and The Thrills.
Poker Face – Lady Gaga
One of the best-selling singles of all time, Poker Face was Lady Gaga’s second single from her 2008 debut album, The Fame. Winner of the Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording, the song is less about gambling and more about romance.
Ace of Spades – Motörhead
If you only deign to listen to one song from this legendary rock band – maybe you’re more of a Justin Bieber fan – make it Ace of Spades. Released in 1980, it was the title track from their album which was their highest UK charting number 4. It is about the perils of gambling addiction which is ultimately described as ‘dancing with the devil’.
Love is a losing game – Amy Winehouse
Taken from her iconic 2006 album, Back to Black, the late singer’s heartbreaking ballad Love is a Losing Game likens the world of love to a game of cards; and feels all the more painfully poignant since her death in 2011. We’d even go so far as to say that this track rivals even Adele’s most heartbreaking hits.
