I am having a Las Vegas themed murder mystery party on Friday. Does anyone have any music suggestions for my playlist. Have got some of the obvious ones but still falling short of a decent sized playlist.

All suggestions welcome.

The obvious:
Elvis

And so on.

Other:
The soundtrack from the movie Rat race ?
Z.Z. Top - sharp-dressed man

Since I am not invited, there is little risk to my own sanity in recommending Wayne Newton, lol.

Also The Who - "Who Are You" if you're a CSI fan and can readily associate it with Las Vegas...Does fit nicely with the murder theme.

Anything off the Casino soundtrack might be good as well for the movie buffs.

Brilliant, I love it. Didn't realise it was the who but I know the tune.

Thanks.

A few obvious hotel or Vegas themed songs i have thought of

Casino Royale - Herb Alpert
Luck Be a Lady - Donny Osmond
Heartbreak Hotel - Neil Diamond
Viva Las Vegas - Elvis Presley

Probably the furthest thing from Vegas songs, but:

AC\DC - The Jack
Motorhead - Ace of Spades

Immediately after posting my Squeezebox, via its eerily intelligent random mix, suggested Grateful Dead - Loser (Dead Set live in SF version).

Truly, our music libraries are separated at birth...

Can I also suggest:

The Gambler - Kenny Rogers
Luck be a Lady tonight - Frank Sinatra
Por Una Cabeza - Carlos Gardel and Alfredo Le Pera (an amazing tango about a horse race)

Leaving Las Vegas - Sheryl Crow
Viva Las Vegas - the ZZ Top version
Las Vegas Nights - Hootie & the Blowfish

A factoid I'm sad enough to know, but during the movie "Very Bad Things" ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0124198/ ) some guys go to Vegas for a stag weekend and end up killing a hooker. The music playing in the background during this scene is by Death In Vegas. Can't remember the song, Dirt or Rocco possibly.

Anyhow, I think the OP's Vegas themed party is long over ;-)
