Only memorable soundtrack moment in VCS was the Phil Colin's concert In The Air Tonight & also the song.

Both are great, but I found myself constantly going back to listen to Vice City's soundtrack. Especially Flash FM and V-Rock

It's bit hard to say. VCS has a darker tone to most of it's soundtrack selection and I do enjoy that more than VC's more cheerful tone.

I mean VCS has:

Japan - Quiet Life
Kajagoogoo - Too Shy
New Order - Blue Monday
The Cure - The Forest
Egyptian Lover - Egypt, Egypt
Blancmange - Living on the Ceiling
Depeche Mode - Everything Counts

Hall & Oates - Family Man
Talk Talk - It's My Life

Planet Patrol - Play At Your Own Risk


however, VC does have:

The Psychedelic Furs - Love My Way
Electric Light Orchestra - Four Little Diamonds
The Buggles - Video Killed the Radio Star

 

 

so that's a few, very few, gems in VC...

I liked VC's more. VCS' soundtrack didn't bring anything new to the table, it just seemed like it an expansion with new songs by some of the same artists.

+1000000

 

Also, it introduced me to one of my "sexy time" anthems.

 

 

VCS' version of Wave 103 is better than VC's version imho. As much as I love (Keep Feeling) Fascination, I prefer Love Action (I Believe In Love). Although Poison Arrow is  waay better than (How To Be A) Millionare.

Fernando is the second character in the series that has appeared in every Gta from Gta III to Gta V in second place with Lazlow being first.

Here I am, rock you like a hurricane!

VC V-Rock isn't give me much nostalgic vibe as VCS V-Rock do infact I don't even correctly remember the song list on VC V-Rock too. And one thing, Lazlow as V-Rock DJ is weak, Couzin Ed is the best especially for his energy.

Hard to say, the original VC is classic and has nostalgia, and great songs such as Missing You, Crockets Theme, or pretty much all of Emotion, and actually the whole soundtrack I love every song, Out of Touch, Video Killed the Radio Star, Pale Shelter, Kids in America, 99 Luftballons, Self Control, I Ran (so far away), Rock Box (Run DMC), the list goes on. And VCS it's the same situation, VCS has Easy Lover, The Warrior, Love is a Battlefield, Wouldn't it be Good, It's My Life, Relax, Space Age Love Song, I Want to Know What Love Is, I Can Dream About You, and of course In The Air Tonight which is to me the greatest song ever. 

 

To me Espantoso is also better in VCS, I had some great atmospheric feelings towards the beginning of the game cruising around Little Havana during the day and Espantoso going. I always go Espantoso in the day and move to Flash or Emotion by night. 

Very hard to choose, it's like choosing your favourite child. I'll probably say the original VC soundtrack, that is just perfect. VCS went for a more darker and neon tone to the whole style of the game, so that soundtrack is perfect too. I think I'll say the original VC though, maybe it's the nostalgia in me. Even though I feel like VCS has the stronger line up, my heart keeps saying VC.
