      Ursprünglich hatte ich vor, ein eigenes Forum für dieses wichtige Thema zu eröffnen... Aber ich denke , dieser Thread könnte dafür sogar reichen.

      Als Pokeridiot beziehe ich selbstverstänlich alle Umweltreize direkt auf unser geliebtes Spiel. Das gilt natürlich auch für Musik. Immer wieder rufen gewisse Song-Texte Assoziation bei mir hervor.


      Fangen wir mit einem Song an, der sich explizit ums Pokern dreht.

      The Gambler von Kenny Rogers:

      On a warm summer's evenin' on a train bound for nowhere,
      I met up with the gambler; we were both too tired to sleep.
      So we took turns a starin' out the window at the darkness
      'til boredom overtook us, and he began to speak.

      He said, son, I've made a life out of readin' people's faces,
      And knowin' what their cards were by the way they held their eyes.
      So if you don't mind my sayin', I can see you're out of aces.
      For a taste of your whiskey I'll give you some advice.

      So I handed him my bottle and he drank down my last swallow.
      Then he bummed a cigarette and asked me for a light.
      And the night got deathly quiet, and his face lost all expression.
      Said, if you're gonna play the game, boy, ya gotta learn to play it right.

      You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,
      Know when to walk away and know when to run.
      You never count your money when you're sittin' at the table.
      There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealin's done.

      Now ev'ry gambler knows that the secret to survivin'
      Is knowin' what to throw away and knowing what to keep.
      'cause ev'ry hand's a winner and ev'ry hand's a loser,
      And the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep.

      So when he'd finished speakin', he turned back towards the window,
      Crushed out his cigarette and faded off to sleep.
      And somewhere in the darkness the gambler, he broke even.
      But in his final words I found an ace that I could keep.

      You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,
      Know when to walk away and know when to run.
      You never count your money when you're sittin' at the table.
      There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealin's done.

      You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,
      Know when to walk away and know when to run.
      You never count you r money when you're sittin' at the table.
      There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealin's done.


      Nun ein Song mit einer Pokerpassage:

      Spanish Train von Chris de Burgh

      There's a Spanish train that runs between
      Gualdalquivir and old Saville
      And at dead of night the whistle blows
      And people hear she's running still

      And then they hush their children back to sleep
      Lock the doors, upstairs they creep
      For it is said that the souls of the dead
      Fill that train ten thousand deep

      Well a railway man lay dying with his people by his side
      His family were crying, knelt in prayer before he died
      But above his bed just a waiting for the dead
      Was the Devil with a twinkle in his eye
      "Well God's not around and look what I've found
      This one's mine"

      Just then the Lord himself
      Appeared in a blinding flash of light
      And shouted at the Devil
      "Get thee hence to endless night"
      But the Devil just grinned and said
      "I may have sinned
      But there's no need to push me around
      I got him first so you can do your worst
      He's going underground"

      "But I think I'll give you one more chance"
      Said the Devil with a smile
      "So throw away that stupid lance
      It's really not your style"
      "Joker is the name
      Poker is the game
      We'll play right here on this bed
      And then we'll bet for the biggest stakes yet
      The souls of the dead"

      And I said "Look out, Lord, He's going to win
      The sun is down and the night is riding in
      That train is dead on time, many souls are on the line
      Oh Lord, He's going to win"

      Well the railway man he cut the cards
      And he dealt them each a hand of five
      And for the Lord he was praying hard
      Or that train he'd have to drive
      Well the Devil he had three aces and a king
      And the Lord, he was running for a straight
      He had the queen and the knave
      And nine and ten of spades
      All he needed was the eight

      And then the Lord he called for one more card
      But he drew the diamond eight
      And the Devil said to the son of God
      "I believe you've got it straight
      So deal me one for the time has come
      To see who'll be the king of this place
      But as he spoke, from beneath his cloak
      He slipped another ace

      Ten thousand souls was the opening bid
      And it soon went up to fifty-nine
      But the Lord didn't see what the Devil did
      And he said "that suits me fine"
      "I'll raise you high to a hundred and five
      And forever put an end to your sins"
      But the Devil let out a mighty shout, "My hand wins"

      And I said "Lord, oh Lord, you let him win
      The sun is down and the night is riding in
      That train is dead on time, many souls are on the line
      Oh Lord, don't let him win"

      Well that Spanish train still runs between
      Gualdalquivir and old Saville
      And at the dead of night the whistle blows
      And people fear she's running still
      And far away in some recess
      The Lord and the Devil are now playing chess
      The Devil still cheats and wins more souls
      And as for the Lord, well, he's just doing his best

      And I said "Lord, oh Lord, you've got to win
      The sun is down and the night is riding in
      That train is still on time, Oh my soul is on the line
      Oh Lord, you've got to win"


      Alles ganz nett soweit. Aber das ist nichts gegen meinen all time favorite:

      Pretty Belinda von Chris Andrews

      She lived on a boathouse down by the river
      everyone called her Pretty Belinda
      went to the boathouse down by the river
      just for a look at Pretty Belinda!

      All of my loving wanted to give her
      as soon as I saw her P.B.

      She lived in a boathouse down on the river
      I wanted to have her P. B.

      Her eyes were exciting her hairwas golden

      the lips were inviting
      and my heart she's stolen!
      Now we're together me and Belinda
      Now and forever me and my Linda

      She lived on a boathouse down..

      Solo

      She lived on a boathose down...

      Now I am with her my P.B.
      that's what I've sent her my P.B.
      She gave me her heart then believe me
      your promise will ever bother
      Belinda is ominons!

      She lived in a...
      me and my wife called P. B.


      Für den naiven Zuhörer ist das einfach irgend eine blöde Schlagerschnulze. Der Eingeweihte hingegen erkennt sofort mit wissendem Lächeln, dass der Text eine ernsthafte Botschaft enthält. Er faßt nämlich den Traum eines jeden Pokerspielers Worte: Am River ein Fullhouse zu haben und dabei jede Menge Caller zu bekommen!

      Ich bin der festen ßberzeugung, dass viele Songwriter in ihren Werken versteckte Pokerbotschaften unterbringen. Versteckt, weil sie Angst vor juristischen Unwägbarkeiten haben. (Legalize it!)


      Einige weitere Songs sind auch ganz passabel. Wenn ihr mal wieder einem eurer Gegner einen Bad Beat zufügt und dieser euch darauf hin beschimpft, antwortet doch einfach:

      I just called to say I love you.

      Ihr werdet sehen, die Situation entkrampft sich sofort.


      Weitere Poker Songs, die mir spontan einfallen: Against all Odds von Phill Collins oder I'm the Set Man -- Didadadada..... (hieß soch so, oder?)


      Vielleicht könnt ihr ja noch weitere Poker Songs beitragen.

      Fort Minor - Slip out the back

      ....Listen its like poker you can play your best
      But you got to know when to fold your cards and take a rest
      And know when to hold your cards and hold your breath
      And hope that nobody else is stacking the deck because
      I dont need to tell you that life isnt fair, it doesnt care .....

      Motörhead - Ace of Spades

      If you like to gamble, I tell you I'm your man,
      You win some, lose some, all the same to me,
      The pleasure is to play, makes no difference what you say,
      I don't share your greed, the only card I need is
      The Ace Of Spades

      Playing for the high one, dancing with the devil,
      Going with the flow, it's all the same to me,
      Seven or Eleven, snake eyes watching you,
      Double up or quit, double stake or split,
      The Ace Of Spades

      You know I'm born to lose, and gambling's for fools,
      But that's the way I like it baby,
      I don't wanna live for ever,
      And don't forget the joker!

      Pushing up the ante, I know you wanna see me,
      Read 'em and weep, the dead man's hand again,
      I see it in your eyes, take one look and die,
      The only thing you see, you know it's gonna be,
      The Ace Of Spades


      Sisters of Mercy - Under The Gun

      You don't have to say you're sorry
      To look on further down the line
      Into the sun
      Too close at heaven
      Love is fine
      But you can't hold it like a...

      Two worlds apart two together
      Into that good night kiss away
      One takes the hard, one the other
      Kiss away

      Are you living for love?
      Are you living for love?
      When the road gets too tough
      Is your love strong enough?

      Are you living?
      Are you living for love?
      Are you living for love?
      [Repeat]

      Do you feel your head is full of thunder?
      Questions never end?
      Empty nights alone?
      No wonder
      It all comes back again

      Are you living for love?
      Are you living for love?
      I've been under the gun
      I've lost and I've won
      [Repeat]

      (two, three, four)

      Forget the many steps to heaven
      It never happened and it ain't so hard
      Happiness is a loaded weapon and a
      Short cut is better by far
      Explosive bolts, ten thousand volts
      At a million miles an hour
      Abrasive wheels and molten metals
      It's a semi-automatic, get in the car
      Corrosive heart and frozen heat

      We're worlds apart where we could meet

      Where the street fold round and the motors start
      And the idiot wields the power
      Where the chosen hold the highest card
      On the field of honour where the ground is hard
      So the highest hand is joking wild
      And the house soon fold and no one stand
      I put my finger on and dialled
      The tower, the moon, the gun and
      Nine nine nine, singer down
      Cloudburst and all around
      The first are last, the blessed get wired
      The best is yet to come
      I put my finger on and fired
      Heat-seeking, out of the sun
      You can set the controls for the heart or the knees
      And the meek'll inherit what they damn well please
      Get ahead, go figure, go ahead and pull the trigger
      Everything under the gun


      Jay-Z - Dirt Off Your Shoulder Lyrics


      You're now tuned into the muh'fuckin greatest
      Turn the music up in the headphones
      Tim, you can go and brush your shoulder off nigga
      I got you, yeah

      If you feelin like a pimp nigga, go and brush your shoulders off
      Ladies is pimps too, go and brush your shoulders off
      Niggaz is crazy baby, don't forget that boy told you
      Get, that, dirt off your shoulder

      I probably owe it to y'all, proud to be locked by the force
      Tryin to hustle some things, that go with the Porsche
      Feelin no remorse, feelin like my hand was forced
      Middle finger to the law, nigga grip'n my balls
      All the ladies they love me, from the bleachers they screamin
      All the ballers is bouncin they like the way I be leanin
      All the rappers be hatin, off the track that I'm makin
      But all the hustlers they love it just to see one of us make it
      Came from the bottom the bottom, to the top of the pots
      Nigga London, Japan and I'm straight off the block
      Like a running back, get it man, I'm straight off the block
      I can run it back nigga cause I'm straight with the Roc

      You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder
      You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder
      You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder
      You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder

      Your homey Hov' in position, in the kitchen with soda
      I just whipped up a watch, tryin to get me a Rover
      Tryin to stretch out the coca, like a wrestler, yessir
      Keep the Heckler close, you know them smokers'll test ya
      But like, fifty-two cards when I'm, I'm through dealin
      Now fifty-two bars come out, now you feel 'em
      Now, fifty-two cars roll out, remove ceiling
      In case fifty-two broads come out, now you chillin
      with a boss bitch of course S.C. on the sleeve
      At the 40/40 club, ESPN on the screen
      I paid a grip for the jeans, plus the slippers is clean
      No chrome on the wheels, I'm a grown-up for real

      Your boy back in the building, Brooklyn we back on the map
      Me and my beautiful beeeeeeeitch in the back of that 'Bach
      I'm the realest that run it, I just happen to rap
      I ain't gotta clap at 'em, niggaz scared of that black
      I drop that +Black, Album+ then I back, out it
      As the best rapper alive nigga ask about me
      From Bricks to Billboards, from grams to Grammys
      The O's to opposite, Orphan Annie
      You gotta pardon Jay, for sellin out the Garden in a day
      I'm like a young Marvin in his hey'
      I'm a hustler homey, you a customer crony
      Got some, dirt on my shoulder, could you brush it off for me?


      You're now tuned into the muh'fuckin greatest

      Best rapper alive, best rapper alive

      (words & music by Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman)

      Bright light city gonna set my soul
      Gonna set my soul on fire
      Got a whole lot of money that's ready to burn,
      So get those stakes up higher

      There's a thousand pretty women waitin' out there
      And they're all livin' devil may care
      And I'm just the devil with love to spare
      Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas

      How I wish that there were more
      Than the twenty-four hours in the day
      'Cause even if there were forty more
      I wouldn't sleep a minute away
      Oh, there's black jack and poker and the roulette wheel
      A fortune won and lost on ev'ry deal
      All you need's a strong heart and a nerve of steel

      Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas

      Viva Las Vegas with you neon flashin'
      And your one armbandits crashin'
      All those hopes down the drain
      Viva Las Vegas turnin' day into nighttime
      Turnin' night into daytime
      If you see it once
      You'll never be the same again

      I'm gonna keep on the run
      I'm gonna have me some fun
      If it costs me my very last dime
      If I wind up broke up well
      I'll always remember that I had a swingin' time
      I'm gonna give it ev'rything I've got
      Lady luck please let the dice stay hot

      Let me shout a seven with ev'ry shot
      Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas,
      Viva, Viva Las Vegas

      Sting - Shape of my Heart

      He deals the cards as a meditation
      And those he plays never suspect
      He doesn't play for the money he wins
      He doesn't play for the respect
      He deals the cards to find the answer
      The sacred geometry of chance
      The hidden law of probable outcome
      The numbers lead a dance

      I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
      I know that the clubs are weapons of war
      I know that diamonds mean money for this art
      But that's not the shape of my heart

      He may play the jack of diamonds
      He may lay the queen of spades
      He may conceal a king in his hand
      While the memory of it fades

      I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
      I know that the clubs are weapons of war
      I know that diamonds mean money for this art
      But that's not the shape of my heart
      That's not the shape, the shape of my heart

      And if I told you that I loved you
      You'd maybe think there's something wrong
      I'm not a man of too many faces
      The mask I wear is one
      Those who speak know nothing
      And find out to their cost
      Like those who curse their luck in too many places
      And those who smile are lost

      I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
      I know that the clubs are weapons of war
      I know that diamonds mean money for this art
      But that's not the shape of my heart
      That's not the shape of my heart

      Allen, die sich einmal als maniac versuchen wollen, kann ich folgende playlist ans Herz legen:

      1. Dire Straits - Tunnel of Love
      ... hey mister, gimme two, gimme two now, 'cos any two can play ...
      2. Bon Jovi - Raise Your Hands
      3. Bon Jovi - Raise Your Hands
      4. Bon Jovi - Raise Your Hands
      5. Bruce Spriongsteen - The River
      ... We'd go down to the river ...

      Nach einiger Zeit (wenn die Auswirkungen der playlist auf die Bankroll spürbar werden) sollte man sich aber vielleicht ein paar Durchläufe von 'Simon & Garfunkel - I am a Rock' gönnen.

      :)

      Wundert mich, dass der hier noch nicht steht
      AC/DC The Jack


      She gave me the Queen
      She gave me the King
      She was wheelin' and dealin'
      Just doin' her thing
      She was holdin' a pair
      But I had to try
      Her Deuce was wild
      But my Ace was high
      But how was I to know
      That she'd been dealt with before
      Said she'd never had a Full House
      But I should have known
      From the tattoo on her left leg
      And the garter on her right
      She'd have the card to bring me down
      If she played it right

      She's got the Jack...

      Poker face was her name
      Poker face was her nature
      Poker straight was her game
      If she knew she could get you
      She play'd 'em fast
      And she play'd 'em hard
      She could close her eyes
      And feel every card
      But how was I to know
      That she'd been shuffled before
      Said she'd never had a Royal Flush
      But I should have known
      That all the cards were comin'
      From the bottom of the pack
      And if I'd known what she was dealin' out
      I'd have dealt it back

      She's got the Jack...

      Thank you, thank you, Thank you people, Thank you, Thank you
      I'm glad you like the show, yes, thank you very much folks.
      Good night and God bless!

      Neil Young - Down by the river (incl. Poker-Interpretation)


      Be on my side, I'll be on your side, baby - Du bettest, ich raise
      There is no reason for you to hide - bitte nicht folden
      It's so hard for me staying here all alone - Heads-up geht nur zu zweit
      When you could be taking me for a ride. - Da schweigen wir einfach mal

      Yeah, she could drag me over the rainbow, send me away - Rainbow am Flop, also keine Flushgefahr
      Down by the river I shot my baby - das muß ich ja wohl nicht mehr interpretieren :D
      Down by the river

      Uncle Kracker - Aces & 8's

      Walked up in the bar and sat down on the stool
      And got the low down from the guy with the jewel
      He was playin pool and he thought he was good
      Cause he bet me five dimes, he could sink em with his foot
      He grabbed a stick, tried to kick it with his heel
      Did a sick back flip and ended up full kneel
      He didn't squeal, but it looked like it hurt
      And it did cause he took me for my cash and my shirt
      I got worked, but what's worse than that
      Just as he was leaving he tipped his hat
      Then he laughed and said, I'm sorry bout your luck
      When he walked out the door he got hit by a truck

      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      That's a dead man's hand
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      That's a dead man's hand
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      That's a dead man's hand
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's

      How bout the guy, used to hang in the clubs
      Getting all the numbers and getting all the love
      He didn't wear gloves, he was too hard core
      May he rest in peace, we don't see him anymore
      Lots of stories and old cliches
      Small town girl tryin to make her way
      She moved to the city, all she wanted was a job
      Now she's underneath the desk tryin to move to the top
      It won't stop cause the circle won't let it
      Be careful what you wish for, you might get it
      You know the cat got macked by the bees
      He was messin with the honey and the mouse and the cheese

      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      That's a dead man's hand
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      That's a dead man's hand
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      That's a dead man's hand
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's

      You could beat the system, you could beat your girl
      But who ya gonna beat come the end of the world
      Imagine everything you ever worked for, strived for
      Suddenly becomin everything your gonna die for
      Now what'd ya live for
      Nothing anymore right
      How could you live your whole life uptight
      See everything you did and everything you seen
      Rolled around in the mud, but you couldn't come clean
      And that makes you dirty, now how does that feel
      Living life like an open cut that won't heal
      Sore at the world and you don't know why
      You bounced like a ball and that's how you'll die

      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      That's a dead man's hand
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      That's a dead man's hand
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      That's a dead man's hand
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's

      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      That's a dead man's hand
      Ace's and eight's

      That's a dead man's hand
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      Ace's and eight's
      That's a dead man's hand

      Hab aus langeweile ein bißchen in den CDs meines Vaters gestöbert und da hab ich von "The Alan Parsons Project" das Album "The turn of a friendly card" gefunden mit einem King auf dem Cover.
      Hab dann mal reingehört und sind wirklich gute Lieder drauf.

      Gruß, Chris

      Crazy Game Of Poker von OAR

      Ohh myyyy
      20 throw down in my best bridge
      and the man to my left has folded down
      well johnny doubled up with a royal flush
      i had three jacks and a pair of nines
      my mind is turning - just two shots more
      there's not much left to play
      well then dude walks in, black hat on top
      what am i, if i'm lucky
      wasn't a county cop
      cause i'm just runnin out of time

      Who's up for game two
      what to do
      my wallet's gettin thin
      and i just lost my watch last night
      well i gotta problem
      just one answer
      gotta throw it all down
      and kiss it goodbye
      Yeah!

      That was a crazy game of poker
      (That was a crazy game of poker)
      I lost it all
      (I lost it all)
      but someday i'll be back again
      And I, never to fold.
      (never to fold)

      Who's up for game three
      i can barely see the bourbon drowning next to me
      And i just lost it all
      well there's a man sittin next to me
      Red, was smiling
      cause its funny
      i don't have no money tonight
      yeaaaaaaaahhhhhhh

      That was a crazy game of poker
      (That was a crazy game of poker)
      I lost it all
      (I lost it all)
      but someday i'll be back again
      And I, never to fold.
      (never to fold)

      Bop bop bop...
      I say now skittleedat dat,
      Well how bout that?
      I'm coming out the front never coming out the back

      And I walked into the bar yesterday
      Cause I had something to do, something to say
      And Johnny walked in right behind me and I didn't turn around
      Til I heard the sound of his feet falling on the ground
      I looked over my shoulder and I saw a clown
      And I said what'cha doin' in the bar tonight.

      So I said Johnny whatcha doing tonight?
      He looked at me with a face full of fright
      And I said, how bout a revolution?
      And he said right.
      I say of, you say a
      I say revolution, and you say die
      I say of, you say a
      I say revolution, and you say die dah dah
      Day day oh!

      And I said, what'cha looking at?
      He hit me across the face with a bat
      I grabbed my .45 and I said let's get out and go
      So he opened the door and said do what you're here for
      I said I'm wandering round the road four to four
      And I said I been walking for about a thousand years.

      And my feet are growing tired
      My eyes a little wired
      Don't know what to do unless I retire
      And he just said let's play some crazy poker

      So I said Johnny whatcha doing tonight?
      He looked at me with a face full of fright
      And I said, how bout a revolution?
      And he said right.
      I say of, you say a
      I say revolution, and you say die
      I say of, you say a
      I say revolution, and you say die dah dah
      Day day oh!

      I said that, was the craziest game of poker that I ever saw
      I said that, was the craziest game of poker that I ever saw
      But I'm not gonna quit and I'm not gonna stop
      Don't give a shit cause I got the drop
      Johnny just got two eyes just like mine
      And I'm feeling kinda funky, kinda fine

      And I drank a bottle of whiskey, 'fore I came
      Came to the bar to see what's the same
      I saw my man named Johnny sittin' across the table from me

      And to my left was a man, he had no chin
      Didn't really think about starting a scene
      The man to my right wasn't feeling kinda nice
      He looked kinda mad and I felt bad
      Beacuse I took his money last night it's kinda funny
      But now I'm just struggling--
      I need a honey-bunny.
      I don't know what to say anymore
      So I'm just gonna go out, anywho...

      So I said Johnny whatcha doing tonight?
      He looked at me with a face full of fright
      And I said, how bout a revolution?
      And he said right.
      I say of, you say a
      I say revolution, and you say die
      I say of, you say a
      I say revolution, and you say die
      I say of, you say a
      I say revolution, and you say die
      I say of, you say a
      I say revolution, and you say die dah dah
      Day day oh!
