  • What songs remind you of Las Vegas?

    Besides Elvis' "Viva Las Vegas," Sinatra's "Luck Be a Lady Tonight," and INXS' "Pretty Vegas," do any other song come to mind?

    I'm trying to make a mix CD for my sister's 21st birthday...we're taking her to Vegas and I thought it would be fun to make her a Vegas-themed CD to listen to during the *ick* 5 hour drive.

    Any ideas? Or are we going to be better off listening to Chuck Norrie?

      Hey, buddy do you got the time?
      No I don't got a watch can you spare a dime,
      But I got two olives and a couple of limes,
      Guessin' that means it's martini time.

      The Martinis that brought you the loss,
      I didn't even ask or care what they cost,
      I lost my job for no reason or rhyme,
      Guessin' that means it's martini time.

      Martini time (vodka ice shaker!),
      Martini time (olive or lime!),
      Martini time (gotta have glasses!),
      Make it with a layer of ice this time.

      Dirty, dry up, or in between,
      From the very first sip you know what I mean,
      When you're out with a babe you don't nickel or dime,
      Guessin' that means it's martini time.

      Martini time (vodka ice shaker!),
      Martini time (olive or lime!),
      Martini time (gotta have glasses!),
      Make it with a layer of ice this time.

      It's martini time.

      I live my life for a layer of ice
      Just like those poured by my bartender vice
      Any taste of vermouth would be really sublime,
      When you have a good martini time!

      It's Martini time (vodka ice shaker!),
      Martini time (olive or lime!),
      Martini time (gotta have glasses!),
      Perfectly poured and top of the line.

      It's martini time
      It's martini time

        "You And Me and the Bottle Makes Three" - Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

        "I Gotta Be Me" - Sammy Davis, Jr.

        "Everybody Loves Somebody" or "That's Amore" - Dean Martin (if you're going for a little "rat pack" Vegas history

        "That's Life" by Sinatra

        Hope this helps a little, Christine...

          Danke schien, darling, danke schoen,
          Thank you for seeing me again.

                Should I throw a little Celine Dion on there, since she's been a leading act for such a long time, or is that just plain blah?

                  That would be just plain blah.


                  And anything from the Swingers soundtrack reminds me of Vegas now.

                    Speaking of soundtracks, now I'm wondering if there is anything from Ocean's 11, Ocean's 12, and Showgirls that would be good for the CD. OH! The CSI Las Vegas theme!

                      "Vegas" by Sara Bareilles is a good one if you haven't heard it yet!
                      Far from the frenzy of the frantic world above.

                        MissC - There's a Faith Hill song from a few years back that says ..

                        "Hey baby let's go to Vegas, kiss the single life goodbye, Hey baby let's go to Vegas, bet on love and let it ride."
                        One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching.

                            I have the Ocean's 13 sndtrk and it's basically all score. And by score, i mean the retro elevator groove songs similar to what you hear in the trailer.

                              Stuff from ABBA, Queen, and the Beatles - since they are featured in either current or recent Vegas shows...
