Songs About Games, Games People Play

So here's a song topic that I don't recall us having played - Songs about Games. What songs can you think of about games, mentioned or implied, of any sort in the title or lyrics? 

 

So I'll start with this one as sort of a "blanket" title - - -

 

The Games People Play - Joe South

Almost any song by Fleetwood Mac- a group that I love but here goes-

The Chain, Little Lies, Second hand news, Gold dust woman, I don’t want to know- basically the whole Rumours album lol. Genesis is big for them also- In too deep, No reply at all, That’s all. Also Dirty deeds done dirt cheap by AC/DC.

And Drive my car by the Beatles. Games adults play have yielded tons of songs!
