Music from the Grand Theft Auto series

hqdefault

 

I was up this morning listening to music as usual. Like many others, I can be listening to a song and instantly  think of either San Andreas or Vice city. Released almost 12 years ago,  My older brother truly had me hooked. It was the music that sucked me in because I really didn’t play a lot of video games. Truthfully I sucked!

I could go on and on about this. About how much all these songs mean to me. How I know every song on Radio Los Santos and Playback FM by heart. No matter where I am when I hear any song from CSR.103.9, I have to contain myself from singing or dancing.

Im-Too-Cool-Do-Carlton-Carlton

Let me just say that Rockstar North did their thing! The music fit the games perfectly.

 

A little nostalgia rush for your Tuesday …..
