^^^Great list! I'm kind of surprised that "In a Big County" never made it onto one of the radio stations. It can be heard playing in the Malibu Club during one of the heist planning cutscenes so they obviously licensed it, but we only hear about 30 seconds of it with a muffled effect to it.


As for other songs that I think would have been good fits in VC:


Flash FM


Wave 103


Emotion 98.3

Can't decide on Emotion or Fever... what do you think guys?



A tough call, but I'd personally say Fever.


And also updated my playlists with more songs and playlists for Emotion and V-Rock, because why the hell not. Also thought I'd put links to Spotify playlists in there, saves me having to link to YouTube for each individual song.

I think I might actually start adding a lot of these songs to the custom playlist on VC just to see what it's like playing through with them next time I get back on it. The nice thing is that everything is from 1986 and before, so it won't be like what I've heard on people's YouTube videos of some of the older playthroughs where they have their own custom music and it's some screamo sh*t from the mid-2000s.

The episode of Miami Vice that featured "Smuggler's Blues" was very memorable. Glenn Frey even played a drug smuggler in the episode! That song was also included on the European release of the Flash FM CD (along with a few other songs that were never heard in the game), so Rockstar wanted that song to be in the game too, before it was cut. Maybe next time they use Vice City as a setting we'll hear it if they can clear up the licensing or whatever caused it to be removed to begin

The Coconut Kid

Smuggler's Blues is my favourite episode of Vice by far so big thumbs up :^: Also I didn't know that tidbit about the song being included with the official soundtrack and I'm quite curious about the other ones that were cut?

According to the tracklist for the CD that's available online, "Hold the Line" by Toto was meant to appear on Flash FM (and this song later reappeared in San Andreas)


And "I Wanna Be a Cowboy" by Boys Don't Cry was also cut, that's also listed on the tracklist and was included on the CD.
