This is a game that has a soundtrack more recognized than games revolving around music like Guitar Hero. Question is, what song plays in your head when you think about Vice City?

Not my favourite song, but it's the first song you hear after entering Ken's Admiral at the beginning of the game. Whenever I hear this song, I immediately think of Vice City. So many great memories I have with this song, such a shame that it was cut from newer versions of Vice City (iOS/Android, and Steam maybe too).

Either Crockett's theme by Jan Hammer or I just died (in your arms tonight) by Cutting Crew. Emotion 98.3 FTW.

I will never forget the moment I fell in love with this song while playing VC. I jacked a wine red colored Stinger just outside of Tommy's hotel getting myself a wanted level in the process, so I booted the accelerator and as soon as I floored it around the corner, Atomic kicked in. I ripped up all the corners and the alleyways, tearing past cop cars and mowing down joggers as I went. I made it to the police bribe opposite Well Stacked Pizza and opened her up over the Leaf Links Bridge, and the rest they say is history. A long time ago now, but I remember it vividly after Flicko (led by of the VC forum) encouraged me to buy the Xbox Double Pack and type up all that was great about VC after not playing the game for many years. Best decision I ever made.

 

And I still have that Stinger.

Gosh, pretty much all of the songs in the soundtrack makes you think of VC from time to time.

They all have that certain "VC vibe" in them.

Kool & the Gang - Summer Madness

 

 

I remember when I bought the game in 2003. After playing a few hours, after being arrested many, many times (shooting people for no reason), I stole one Sanchez on Ocean Drive and this song was starting on Fever 105.  The sunset was at its height and I just started driving down the beach on the bike until the song is over. No pedestrian accidents, gunshots, no police, just me driving the Sanchez.

I experienced the 80s full on, so I don't associate many songs with Vice City, but more so the MTV video that I remember seeing or just hearing songs as they got big.

 

But this is one that I didn't catch from back in the day, and I think about Vice City if I hear it outside of the game.

I change my mind. This is mine too lol I completely forgot about this song, but just hearing it brings me back to the shoes of Tommy Vercetti lol It was used for a really sweet trailer, too if I remember correctly.

 

Isn't it funny how we're being nostalgic about a game completely based on nostalgia? We're being nostalgic for nostalgia.

 

Edit:

Mine for San Andreas is Eminence Font by The Who:

 

Very similar song. Just thought it was kinda funny.

I have two favorite ones

 

Wasn't that one made specifically for Vice City? Radio Espantoso rocks :p

 

I remember the first day I played Vice City, I couldn't go out of the safehouse because of this song, it was so catchy that I just had to listen to it :p

 

and yeah, of course this one

 

 

 

Loved stealing that Lambo from that mall and listening to V-Rock, made me feel like badass tuff guy

Probably 'Out of Touch' by Hall & Oates. Such an anthem.

Gary Numan - Cars

The Pointer Sisters -  Automatic

Hall & Oates - Out of Touch

Go West - Call Me

Wang Chung - Dance Hall Days

 

There's literally so many songs that come to mind when I think of VC that I really don't associate it with just one.
