Steve Hackett: Slot Machine
Steve Hackett started out with the progressive rock supergroup Genesis, and then went on to a successful solo career of his own. “Slot Machine” highlights Hackett’s electrifying electric guitar work, as well as the thrill of his favorite casino gambling game:
Gotta reach Atlantic City,
I’m a winner every day.
Blackjack holds no attraction,
Just one game I play.
Get a grip on the handle of steel,
Pull slowly, watch the wheels
When you play with a slot machine.
Listen to Steve Hackett perform Slot Machine.
The Grateful Dead: Tennessee Jed
I woke up a-feelin’ mean.
I went down to play the slot machine.
The wheels turned around and the letters read,
“You better head back to Tennessee, Jed.”
Listen to the Grateful Dead perform Tennessee Jed.
Joni Mitchell: The Dry Cleaner from Des Moines
With lyrics by Joni Mitchell and music by the late jazz great Charles Mingus, and sung by Joni with an all-star jazz band led by Jaco Pastorius on bass, this masterpiece tells the woeful tale of a lady who can’t catch a break at the slots while the guy at the next machine — the dry cleaner from Des Moines — keeps hitting jackpot after jackpot.
He got three oranges,
Three lemons, three cherries, three plums.
I’m losing my taste for fruit
Watching the dry cleaner do it
Like Midas in a polyester suit.
It’s all luck! It’s just luck!
You get a little lucky and you make a little money!
Listen to Joni Mitchell perform The Dry Cleaner from Des Moines.
