I've read that this song by Lionel Richie was in the original PS2 version released in 2002 and was then removed from every other version (PC, X-Box, the double-packs, the Greatest Hits). No reason was given for the removal. Is this true? Does anyone still have their original Vice City disc to confirm this?

Oh, and did Toni (the DJ of Flash FM) give a comment about the song?

Yes, that is true. PS2 version got this song in the playlist. I can't say if they give a comment about it though.

Even if she did, they will have cut that out along with the song itself. I read somewhere that you can still hear the intro in the background somewhere though where they couldn't edit it to be seamless.

Thanks guys! Looks like there was a little comment from Toni that was cut too but she didn't really comment on the song, she just said what's already been advertised in the Flash FM commercials. lol.gif

Really sucks that it was cut from all other verisons. sad.gif

I think I actually had the original disc but I threw it away when I bought a new one to replace it. whatsthat.gif

Shame you got rid of the original disc, I think this song is great and deserves to be in everyone's GTA VC! biggrin.gif

I own the original PS2 version of the game and "Running with the Night" does play on Flash FM (the final song on the playlist after "One Thing Leads to Another"). I have no idea as to why they removed it in later versions, must have been some licensing troubles. Shame as it's actually one of the best songs on the station imo.
