The Arcade Fire song, "Deep Blue," mentions the 1996 match in which IBM's Deep Blue was defeated by Kasparov. Also, it's an awesome song.
Are we forgetting "Like a g6" by Far east movement
That song is always in my head as black begins to fianchetto :P
Bob Segar taught me how the knight moves.
But Suzanne Vega actually has a song named Kinght Moves.
Watch while the queenIn one false moveTurns herself into a pawn
Unfolding Vostoks - Bobby Fischer Trees
Queen on their second album Queen II had many chess references.
I just wrote lyrics for Bob Seger's "Knight Moves"
I was a little bit behindCould’ve used a few pawnsStaring at the black army, attack coming onShe was a boxwood beauty with a hand carved maneA bridle on her head sitting way up highWay up firm and highOut past the mid ranks, where his pieces were collected Stood my lone bishop, unprotectedPicked up my piece, the one with hoovesAnd I made a knight moveTried to offer a trade he could not refuseWhen I made that knight moveTo a square, sublimeMy position was looking primeHe wasn’t in check, oh no far from itYet I knew his king would soon take a plummetWe jockeyed for position all over the boardCaptures being scoredAnd we’d steal a pawn every chance we couldTo the back rank, where we tried to push our woodI used forks, he used pinsNeither would yieldWhile our kings still had shields Then I made a knight moveTryin' to catch his queen in the middle of a snoozeSuch a subtle knight moveTwas a sweet sacrificeI knew he’d plunderI laid the trapAnd waited for his blunderWaited for his blunderI looked at the board to find a forced mateHow many moves? No more than eightStarted pushing my rook toward the square G2Ain’t it funny how the knight movesWhen you just don’t seem to have as much to loseStrange how the knight movesWith checkmate closing in
I write my own chess songs. :)
Where's the "like" button? That was awesome!!!
put your back into it by ice cube... talks about gettin check mate
Annihilator - Knight jumps the Queen
This is really about chess! Chess song all the way!!!
This song also uses chess as a metaphor for deadly deeds of world powers:
The Wu Tang clan has made songs about chess.
and Dimmu Borgir...
How about The Pawn Shop Boys?
They sang about how The King lost his castle and now it's back to square one.
