1. “The Gambler”
If you had to pick one poker song to play on repeat this would surely be it. Full of great advice, the classic line “You got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em” still has to be the quintessential poker couplet.
2. “Poker Face”
While it’s really about the game of romance rather than the game of poker, the catchy refrain of “Can’t read my poker face” should still psych you up to win.
3. “Ace of Spades”
One listen to this heavy metal classic about a die-hard gambler living on the edge will have your competitive juices flowing fast.
4. “Luck Be a Lady”
Lady Luck can be fickle and it never hurts to plead with her to be on your side, whether you’re tossing dice like Sky Masterson in the 1955 movie musical Guys and Dolls, or playing online poker in your den.
“I’m a gambler, and I will take you by surprise / Gambler, I’ll aim this straight between your eyes,” goes this 1984 song from the soundtrack to the movie Vision Quest. Sounds like a good mantra for any card player
