    What songs related to Vegas get your hearts thumping? My hands-down favorite is "Ooh Las Vegas," written by Gram Parsons. It's been covered by a few different people, but I always thought the original duet with Emmylou Harris was the best. Then I stumbled across this version by Emmylou with the Hot Band. Crank up the volume and enjoy!

    Nice tune there! Thanks for sharing!

    At home my kids watch a lot of Pawn Stars.
    That theme/opening gets me thinking about all things Vegas, not just the pawn shop!

    I can't think of a better one than Viva Las Vegas, by Elvis. I hear that and I am in the town.

    I agree with Joe, but sometimes I like the ZZ Top version to mix things up a bit.

    Luck Be A Lady is the one I listened to on the way into town on my last trip.

    Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad, from Matt Dusk gives me the real Vegas vibes. That is because, before I ever set foot in Las Vegas, I followed the reality tv show "The Casino", filmed at Golden Nugget. I caught the fever then already.

    I always sing Viva Las Vegas in the shower every mornin.. I really believe I sound like Elvis w the bathroom acoustics.
    But my spouse tells me I sound like an idiot ape.

    :(

    My favorite song that gets me in the Vegas spirit is "Life in the Fast Lane" by the Eagles.

    My bride likes "Waking Up in Vegas" by Katy Perry.

    I would rather listen to Steve Perry, but I imagine he wouldn't look as good in most of her outfits!
