The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday night’s drawing is estimated to hit $500 million due to a meteoric rise in ticket sales. Be sure to buy tickets before the 9:30pm deadline, because experts predict that there’ll most certainly be a winner this time.
However, statistics show it probably won’t be me or you to walk away with the prize. The odds of a person getting struck by lightning in their lifetime are 1 in 5,000. The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 175 million. Although the math isn’t in our favor, what’s the point of playing the game if you’re afraid of striking out?
Here are 10 songs to get you ready for tonight’s 11:20pm drawing. If you happen to be the winner, you must promise to call into Karlson & McKenzie tomorrow morning at 617-931-1007 to share your story.
The Beatles, “Can’t Buy Me Love”
$500 million can buy a lot of things, but it definitely can’t buy love. Actually, yeah it could.
Pink Floyd, “Money”
Dire Straits, “Money For Nothing”
If you’re a big enough fan of Dire Straits, maybe you can convince them to reunite for $500 million. Although a similar attempt by a Guns N’ Roses fan was unsuccessful, you’d probably have a better shot with Dire Straits.
Bruce Springsteen, “Easy Money”
Winning $500 million off a $2 ticket, my friend, is the definition of “Easy Money.”
Lynyrd Skynyrd, “Mr. Banker”
With all that money you’re gonna need someone to manage your funds. Probably not the best idea to keep it hidden in a shoebox underneath your bed.
Steve Miller Band, “Take The Money And Run”
Powerball jackpot winners are always faced with family and friends coming out of the woodworks to get a piece of the fortune. Our advice? Take the money and run…
AC/DC, “Money Talks”
“Tailored suits, chauffered cars // Fine hotels and big cigars” are just a few of the luxuries one can enjoy if named the Powerball jackpot winner.
Rush, “The Big Money”
Janis Joplin, “Mercedes Benz”
You a car guy (or gal)? $500 mil can buy you a whole heck of a lot of Mercedes Benzes.
ZZ Top, “Sharp Dressed Man”
Tired of wearing your ’04 Red Sox World Series t-shirt? With your newfound wealth, get yourself some new threads and you’ll be the sharpest dressed man in town.
