Card Game Soundtrack – “A” Side

Narrated by a burnt-out divorce attorney, CARD GAME is a story about life and loss among a group of now 50-year-old guys who have been playing poker together since they were about 16. Alternating back and forth between the 1970’s – when the card game boys first gather in a suburban Maryland basement – and today, at their friend’s funeral, to remember all they have faced together and, sadly, all they have not.

Not surprisingly, the music of the Seventies beats beneath the surface of the story. If there were a soundtrack to Card Game, and I can only hope that one day maybe there will be, these tracks would find their way on the “A” side:
• “I Don’t Want to Go Home”, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes
• “Night Fever”, the Bee Gees
• “I Wanna Be Sedated”, the Ramones
• “Its Over”, Boz Scaggs
• “Meeting Across the River”, Bruce Springsteen
• “Blackwater”, the Doobie Brothers
• “On the Dark Side”, John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band
