First off, sorry if this has been done before, but it's been on my mind for a while.

Now I'm sure this has happened to you at some point in your gaming experiences as it seems to happen with me quite often, a game can elicit a certain song from the players based on it's name/theme/components/etc just about every time it is played. At first it might be funny, later on it gets a tad annoying and by the end you are ready at any moment to throw counters or meeples (preferably someone else's) at the next person who even suggests the song.

Ticket to Ride by The Beatles

This one has definitely been the biggest perpetrator of them all.

I Shot the Sheriff by Bob Marley

or possibly

Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) by Nancy Sinatra

Maybe being the Sheriff makes this even worse, adding insult to the injury of being shot at.

We Built This City by Starship

I suppose this song could work for pretty much any game where you're building a city (Citadels, Blue Moon City, etc.)

Sugar, Sugar by The Archies

Naturally, this came up every time sugar was used. If only there were a good corn song...

The Power by Snap!

Probably the best time to bust it out is when you're buying the big ol' 50 space-age looking power plant.

This one reminds me of the brilliant Original Sound Track composed by Howard Shore for the equally brilliant movies directed by Peter Jackson, The Lord of the Rings

When a die roll or trade gets you a log and a clay, when you buy 1 or more roads, or just when you get the longest road bonus...

On the road again
I just can't wait to get on the road again
The life I love is building roads around my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again

Wow, both this song and this game have been used already, but not together. However, when we play Settlers, we invariably end up singing:

We built this City...
We built this City on Sheep and Ore!

See also my Tom Wait's "Rain Dogs" geeklist, but I thought "Downtown Train" for Scotland Yard (or N.Y. Chase) was a great match:

Will I see you tonight,
on a downtown train...

any particularly great play by the US player should always accompany this little ditty:



"let the EAAAAAAGLE SOOOOOAAAAAR!!!!!"


(also "we didn't start the fire" seems to come out often.)

And how could we forget Monty Python's Knights of the Round Table?
And pretty much any other song or line from that movie.
