View Full Version : Suggestions wanted for a casino night!
I'm having a Casino & Cocktail party this weekend and need some suggestions for a playlist. Pretty much all I have so far are some James Bond songs... and "Money Money Money" by Abba.
That's not going to last 3 hours, so any suggestions welcomed!
Was thinking primarily of blues/swing/jazz but anything appropriate is great!
Some Amazon links to albums I'd think appropriate:
"Pink Panther's Penthouse Party"
"A Night at the Playboy Mansion" (Dmitri From Paris)
Any of the "Music To Watch Girls By" series
Big Spender (the Shirley Bassey version)...
More seriously, the Hotel Costes series do some pretty good lounge / cocktail music - more downtempo than buzzing though.
-Money- by Pink Floyd from DSOTM.
The Lost Highway soundtrack might be nice (sans rock songs).
Pink Martini would be a great choice and The Flying Lizards' version of 'Money' would probably suit the mood well too. For some reason Matt Munro's 'On Days Like These' from the original Italian Job seems to make me think of casino's, martini's and that whole globetrotting lifestyle.
The Gambler - johnny Cash
Material girl - Madonna
I'm going to cheat. :)
Sammy Davis Jr.
It's going to be hard to beat bpa's Johnny Cash suggestion, but here are a few more:
"Easy money" - Billy Joel
"Money for nothing" - Dire Straits
"Money don't matter tonight" - Prince
"Cash Machine" - Hard Fi
Oh, and "Gimme some money" - Spinal Tap :-)
Thanks for all the suggestions - some good stuff there!
dont forget about
the Ojays - for the love of money
highrollers will love it!!!
Nouveau lounge stuff?
Any Rat Pack album would be appropriate, along with Wayne Newton or Elvis, who was a big Vegas headliner. How about the current Vegas queen, Celine Dion, or is it Elton John?
Also, try some of the radio stations. SmoothLounge or Secret Agent Radio.
Both are on Shoutcast.
