Game Show Songs
« on: September 03, 2023, 01:37:30 AM »
In honor of Bob Barker, I'm planning a game for my weekly Rock and Roll Bingo night.  I was hoping to do "Game Show Songs", all songs with something in the title you could win on a game show.

I'd appreciate any suggestions.  It doesn't have to be rock and roll!  Country, pop, hip-hop and R&B work too!

Here's what I have so far:

Go Go's - Vacation
Eddie Money - Two Tickets to Paradise
ZZ Top - Pearl Necklace
Gary Lewis - This Diamond Ring
Pink Floyd - Money
Midnight Oil - Beds are Burining
"Weird Al" Yankovic - Livin' in the Fridge
Old Dominon - I Was on a Boat That Day
Notorious B.I.G. - Mo Money, Mo Problems
Confederate Railroad - Daddy Was Never the Cadillac Kind
Joe Diffie - Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox
Kip Moore - Something About a Truck
Prince - Little Red Corvette
Beatles - Drive My Car

Thanks!
