Great choices bro, what a time for music. Is there any way we can mix these tracks into the actual game? I've seen someone

and wouldn't mind seeing something like that with the tracks you mentioned.

 

Another one I would have liked on Wave 103:

Why thank you. I imagine doing such a thing would be possible on a PC version, but since VCS doesn't have such a release (official anyway), it seems out of the question.

VCS had some of the best soundtrack in the series to be honest, so I think that it shouldn't really be changed all that much. Still though.

Emotion 98.3

The Cure - Siamese Twins (1982)

 

VCFL

Isaac Hayes & Millie Jackson - Do You Wanna Make Love (1979)

Wave 103

I know I posted a song on the last page, but I'm kind of starting to like coming up with these alternative playlists, so here's my own. Flash FM and Emotion 98.3 probably the most fleshed out, but I think the others would make nice additions to the existing tracks, too.

 

Flash FM

 

 

Emotion 98.3

 

Wave 103

 

VCFL

 

V-Rock

One of my fave 80's new wave songs that I even featured on my modern day Wave 103 playlist, still think this would be perfect as a trailer song.

Honestly, I was thinking about that as well, with both this and also a GTA IV playlist I made in the thread over there. "What would make a good song for a trailer?"

 

Also, I just added Red Skies by The Fixx, I remember first hearing this song playing at the airport a few years ago, and I feel like it'd suit the game's overall tone of the early 80s and the references to the Cold War.

Was Eurythemic's Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) already featured in GTA? I feel like it's such a baddie song

No. It would fit on Wave 103, though.

If they would've chose a Eurythemic song I think they would've been more on the nose about the choice due to the year:

^^^VC and SA had some good Toto songs (probably two of Toto's best, in my opinion), but 99 would be a good fit on Emotion.

 

Also, updated my original playlist to include a few extra tracks for V-Rock, inspired after listening to the last broadcast last night of a radio station here known for playing classic rock and some 80s metal.
