They say that visual art like drawings and paintings is how we fill space. On the other hand, songs are how we paint time.
Let’s check out several must hear songs about gambling that you can listen to and paint your time with.
Shape of My Heart
The first song we’ll be tuning in to is Sting’s Shape of My Heart. The concept of the song is quite an interesting one. It is about a poker player. However, this one is quite unique and not like a regular poker player.
Instead of winning for money, the poker player that Sting talks about is only playing to gain more knowledge about the game. He plays to understand how the laws of probability are and studying to try and crack the code of poker.
Next up, we have Huck’s Tune by the Bob Dylan. The song was actually made for the Eric Bana and Drew Barrymore film called Lucky You. The song is indeed a theme for the movie.
Like the movie, the song recounts and explains how dangerous playing poker can be. He talks about how it can affect money and more importantly, the relationships of a person. It is a great accompanying track to the film, as it speaks about exactly what is happening on screen.
Good Run of Bad Luck
Finally, we have Good Run of Bad Luck by Clint Black. This is a top country song that, while not totally about gambling, sees life through several of the gambling experiences and sayings.
It tells the story of a person who follows his dreams and heart, only to be unlucky enough to keep losing like a set of bad hands at a poker table.
Why not add these songs to the playlist and play them whenever gambling rolls through your mind?
The reality is that gambling is growing, and legalization of gambling is opening up too. For those interested, you should learn as much as you can.
