80's style soundtrack?

Do you think Rockstar did this on purpose, because they know the fans like the soundtracks of games like SA, VC and VCS?

LSRR and Non-Stop Pop are pretty 80s-y as well. I think a bit of Channel X might be as well, but I don't know too much about punk.
A certain 'retro-sound' or 'feel' is pretty popular these days, look at Kavinsky or Daft Punk.
But yeah, I think it was, to give it a lighter atmosphere, particularly compared to IV, maybe by ringing back to the lighter, popular titles like SA and VC .

I never looked at those songs as being 80s influenced. If anything, they remind me of generic crime movie scores/soundtracks, which is likely seeing as that was what Rockstar was trying to emulate. However, there is one song that feels very 80s influenced from the score:
It's probably just me, but the synthesizer that comes in at 1:20 reminds me a lot of Miami Vice, if anything specifically, Crockett's theme, which coincidentally, was on Vice City's Emotion 98.3.

Most of score songs are not really 80's-influenced.
However, I agree you on 'North Yankton Memories'; Although it sounded like an 80's song, it was too hilarious.
