For both serious and casual online poker players, Sundays are (hopefully) a long grind. For those who don't want to play in a meditative state, music can be the perfect middle ground between total silence and the distraction of television. Don't know what to listen to? Let us take care of that. This week features some driving beats that will help you conquer the field.

Firing Up
During the early stages of a tournament, it is important to set the tone and the best way to do this is to play songs that will put you in the right mind-set for the day's action.

Bruce Springsteen - Glory Days: The time is now. Step up or step off.

Have a Cigar - Pink Floyd: This trippy tune will help keep your mojo going as you stack chips.

Slow Ride - Foghat: You can't win the tournament by winning only a couple of hands. Be patient and pick your spots.

Big Shot - Billy Joel: Don't let your ego write checks you don't want to cash. Make the right move.

The Bubble

It's time to take advantage of the money bubble. These wicked tracks will help you pick up chips while you capitalize on your opponent's tight plays as you pick them apart one by one.

Voodoo Chile (Slight Return) - Jimi Hendrix: You're a tough nut to crack so use your inner poker god to destroy the hopes of your opponents.

Taking it Down

You've made the final table and you need to switch things up a bit so you can properly bleed your opponents on your way to the first-place cash. These tracks will get you there.

The Weight - The Band: You're almost there. Don't let a bad hand set you back. Just let it roll off your shoulders and regain your composure.
