It is finally official, Grand Theft Auto 5 will be released early next year (I predict April, like GTA:IV).
Slowly, since Grand Theft Auto III, it has become my favourite video game series. One reason being the music within the game.
Already, the music used in the two trailers impresses.
The first trailer features “Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake” by the English rock band Small Faces. It was released in 1968 on the album of the same name!
The second trailer features Stevie Wonder’s “Skeletons” from his 1987 album Characters. Both tracks work perfectly, and continue with the Grand Theft Auto games using lesser known music, be it lesser known by a well-known artist, or lesser known, period. For example, the former, The Who’s “Eminence Front” in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, or several tracks by dub artist Scientist in Grand Theft Auto 3.
Take a look/listen for yourself:
The second trailer was released last Wednesday, during that week, I had a GTA theme week on #MVOD (Music Video of the Day) on Twitter. Click to see all seven Tweets/links to the videos.
And, listen to both songs on Grooveshark.
