The Music Machine is Playing the Game!

Hi everyone

Queen asked us to "Play the Game". Chris de Burgh told us that "Joker is the name, Poker is the Game". But how do songs over the past 60 years or so fit into the world of card games? Do tune into the Music Machine on Team-FM this weekend to find out! You can put a safe bet on the fact that I'll be live on the Team, Saturday at 7 PM UK, 2 PM US Eastern!

Bucks Fizz sang about the "Rules of the Game", so let me explain what they are. I'm looking for your song suggestions with common card names which are part of the title or artist. You can use Ace, Jack, Queen, King and Joker. There's also the four suits: clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades. Lets try though not to get into songs mentioning numbers 2 to 10.

There are also songs referring to card games. For example, "Desperado" mentions, "Don't you draw the Queen of Diamonds, boy, She'll beat you if she's able".

I've got a stack of cards, or songs, waiting for you, and maybe you can think of some I've missed.

Please deal out your suggestions to or use Facebook and Twitter. The name is TeamFMRadio.

So don't forget, "You've got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em"! It's the Music Machine this Saturday where I hope to be the leader of the pack!
