Top 10 Las Vegas Songs to Hum

When traveling to Las Vegas to gamble and party (yes, Obama, Las Vegas Backstage Access said it), it’s always good to seek relief and soothe the losses and migraines by humming to tunes that are written about the city. 

Although the official theme song of Las Vegas is “Shine, Las Vegas,” by George Dare, proclaimed in a 1986 city proclamation, here’s the Top 10: 

“Viva Las Vegas,” Elvis Presley (Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman)

“Leaving Las Vegas,” Sheryl Crow (Sheryl Crow, Bill Bottrel, David Baerwald, Kevin Gilbert and David Ricketts)

“Let’s Go to Vegas,” Faith Hill (Karen Stanley)

“Big in Vegas,” Buck Owens (Buck Owens, Terry Stafford)

“Sin City,” AC/DC (Angus Young, Malcolm Young, Bon Scott)

“Heaven or Las Vegas,” Cocteau Twins (Elizabeth Fraser, Robin Guthrie, Simon Raymonde)

“Here’s to Las Vegas,” Barry Manilow (Barry Manilow)

“Me and My Monkey,” Robbie Williams (Robbie Williams)
