Hi All,

Just by chance I sat by my son when he was playing GTA 4 (Grand Theft Auto 4) on his Playstation 3 yesterday...
All of a sudden he was in the car chase with lots of cops after him, despite all the sirens of the police cars I heard a very familiar (and great) tune in the background... I heard the tones of "Till You Surrender" by Rainbow Brown!! In this video game for youngsters...
I couldn't believe my ears... :wink:
So I did a search and ended up with the below listing of Disco music that's featured in the GTA 4 game - quite a good list I may say. None of the too "obvious" tracks:

K109 The Studio

DJ: Karl Lagerfeld
Genre: Disco
Tracklist:

* Peter Brown - "Burning Love Breakdown"
* Tamiko Jones - "Can't Live Without Your Love"
* Gino Soccio - "Dancer"
* Suzy Q - "Get On Up and Do It Again"
* Electrik Funk - "On a Journey"
* Don Ray - "Standing in the Rain"
* Cerrone - "Supernature"
* Rainbow Brown - "Till You Surrender"
* Harry Thumann - "Under Water"
* Skatt Brothers - "Walk the Night"

Here's the link to the Wikipedia site

Anyone knows of other Disco music in Video games ??

OH - btw, the same day I also saw parts of an old episode of Sex in the City where it started out with Donna's "Hot Stuff" and "Bad Girls" followed by Carol's "Doctor's Orders"...


Disco-on !
