    My tastes have changed through the years, but I will always remember "Shaft" because it was performed at the first Vegas show I saw back in the 70's. Can you dig it?
    Recently however, upon taking a fantastic Harley ride through the VOF, and back along Lake Mead, I heard my 3 favorite AC/DC songs and smiled the entire trip. Not in any order, they're Highway to Hell, Shoot to Thrill, and It's a Long Way to the Top.

    Yea, maybe I'm off the deep end for being 72 years old.

    "Sin City" by AC/DC

    "I Love It" by Icona Pop. The rental car I got on my 2013 trip was tuned to the Jelli station and that was the first song I heard after I started the car. I liked it and it seems like I heard it a million times on that trip. "That's Not My Name" by The Ting Tings. Heard it in the airport on that same trip waiting to board my flight back home. Had heard the song before but it stuck with me for some reason and I associate it with Vegas.

    I loved reading through this thread, great responses. For me:

    Any song from The Hangover, Oceans 11/13, Rounders, or 21 as they’re my pre-trip movies I fall asleep to. Any song from the Bellagio fountain show as well.

    Waking Up In Vegas is obvious, but I love the slot machine noises. Instantly sends me to the casino floor in my mind. Each trip has that poppy, Top 40 hit(s) that gets beat into the ground no matter what casino you’re in. I usually stop associating them with Vegas once I get home, but in 2015 I heard Hide Away a million times and grew fond of that catchy little tune. Whenever I hear it now, I’m in Vegas for the next 3 minutes or so.

    If I'm driving in, just after I pass South Point I fire up Viva Las Vegas - ZZ Top . Always plays out while the strip is unfolding in front of me and pumps me back up after that drive.
