Songs About Games Background

I decided to try to think up names of songs about games or that had something referring to a game or games in the title. Surprisingly, there are quite a few songs about games. It surprised me how many there actually are. I'm sure there are many more songs about games that I have forgotten. Can you add to my songs list about games?
