Is there a song on the car radio from the 3-era games that gives you a magical feeling of nostalgia, from playing the games during your childhood/teenage years?
I remember cruising up Mt. Chilliad on my Sanchez while this song plays

Joyride by Da Shootaz that played on Lips103 in GTAIII (it was also the themesong for the original GTA!!! Let's sing along:

Good shot kid you got em''
'Good shot kid you got em''


Hometown, downtown, speeding all around
An AK47 got the power in its barrel to
Move any mother that gets in my way
Just another power machine out on the freeway

Riding with me is my MC homeboy
Knowing the rules ain't part of his program
Finding the right way around this map
Might be pretty hard cause he's f***ed on crack

G - Grand Theft Auto
You gotta make a mark and move where you want to

T - Theft
To steal what you can and run from the nation

A - Hey what d'ya say
We automate the sequence and speed for my getaway
Take it to the edge, there's nowhere to hide
And call up the boys, let's go for a joyride
Let's go for a joyride

"Stop the violence from the police" you know my Dad used to say but now he's deceased
He got caught in a jam, threw in the can
When the cops from Brooklyn said he killed another man

Seek knowledge was my main game
To think about the law, to figure out the frame
Just when I thought I knew justice, a cop behind me said
"You just been busted"


Don't f*** with me!!

Usually the first song which plays in Admiral at the beginning of Vice City. inlove.gif
It was (and still is) one of my most favourite songs, everytime I hear it I think of Vice city. It reminds me my first days of playing GTA. smile.gif
I used to love this one in my first days of playing SA:

Also I love a rainy night by Eddie Rabbit, which was posted by thegtaman531 already. smile.gif

Express Yourself by NWA immediately transports me back to Grove Street! and All My Exes Live in Texas gives me flashbacks of running guys over in my combine harvester! inlove.gif

So, SO many! Particularly from III. Ones that were playing when I did the iconic "Last Requests" mission. Nothing will ever beat the first time I saw "Welcome to Staunton Island" and that includes the music which was playing at the time, that had me on edge, and drew me in.

...and of course, the iconic, classic:

Michael Jackson - Billie Jean
America - Horse With No Name
Hall & Oates - Family Man
Lynyrd Skynyrd - Free Bird

These are just a few songs that made the III-era games so nostalgic.
