In the Part 2 of the article about the best Australian songs about gambling and women we see some more legendary hard rockin’ songs by Aussie legends.
Previously we posted an article about the best Australian songs about gambling and women, two interconnected subjects that almost every gambler has experienced simultaneously. Some go and drink when their hearts are broken, while some go and gamble. If you are one of those, at least pick the best casinos and don’t get conned by scam casino websites. A top 20 NetEnt casinos list will help you do it. So let’s see the songs in this sequel article.
Life’s A Gamble, by The Radiators
Formed in 1978 as an Aussie pub rock band, The Radiators have gone down in the history of Australian music as hard-hitting metal-pop hit makers. Their songs were full of humour and life truths, and there is no bigger truth than the fact that life’s a gamble. The title says all about the subject of the song. It was released in 1984 on the album of the same name and featured 3 other hits like Gimmie Head, No Tragedy, and Coming Home.
The Honeymoon Is Over, The Cruel Sea
Formed in 1989, The Cruel Sea is a band with 6 wins at the ARIA Music Awards, and two of them were given for this song, the Song of the Year for 1993 award, and the Single of the Year for 1993 award. As the name suggests this song is about breaking off with a woman, kicking her out and changing the tattoo with another girl’s name. It’s a standard situation where a girl made a fool out of the man, and he regrets to ever have had anything with her.
You Shook Me All Night Long, AC/DC
No song gets better about women than this AC/DC classic. The lyrics say it all: “She was a fast machine she kept her motor clean, she was the best damn woman that I ever seen”. The lyrics go on how he had the best night of his life with this imaginary girl with those “American thighs”. A pure hard rock classic by the legends AC/DC. Even the video is one of the best known music videos in hard rock history.
Got You By the Balls, AC/DC
AC/DC has got songs about everything, but mostly about women. Big women, skinny women, honest women and money-grabbing women. This is a song about the money-grabbing women, for mistresses that like to play it big with businessmen. It’s about women that are going out with rich people ready to please them with their special services and French qualities when there’s money in their hands. It’s why the song was named ‘Got You By the Balls’.
Two’s Up, AC/DC
Who else if not AC/DC again. This one is about life in general all through gambling metaphors like “Ace high, Hide your poker eyes” and “Lady luck, Is standing at my side, I leave with more than I brought in, And get out with my life”. AC/DC have been through everything in life so it may be wise to take heed and listen to their life stories.
