Random Encounter

I said that Random Encounter was the 4th best game cover band on Spotify, but have yet to make a post about them. I guess this post will correct that problem.

I stumbled upon Random Encounter via the Similar Artist tab on Spotify about 2 years ago, and I have been a huge fan since. Its actually a wonder that I had not heard of them before as they are one of the more famous cover bands out there.

Musically they fit snugly in the genera of progressive folk-indie rock, in the sub-genre of video game music, and can be quickly recognized by their frequent use of the accordion and Russian feel. (They are from Orlando, Florida, don't be fooled)

Visit their official band page here:

Dead Island Riptide and Star Command

Another round of releases, Pawel Blaszczak does good work with the Riptides soundtrack, even if the reviewers did not really agree with the title.

Saints Row: The Third

Saints Row: The Third has a a bit less music than is predecessor, but the quality remains high. The complete list is missing, but overall, I think we ended up less missing songs in this list due to 105.0 channels being cut, and that was the major problem with Saints Row 2.

Anyway, please enjoy:

Saints Row 2 Soundtrack

I was inspired by Rockstar and their GTA playlists release and I figured that Saints Row had a good soundtrack as well. No such luck with Volition and Saints Row, so I made my own, please enjoy.

Note: The 105 channels are very limited. Spotify is not that great with World and Easy Listening music as it is with 80s hits and Classical music.

Due to this, I have made the playlists collaborative, if you find the missing songs, please feel free to update the playlist.

Grand Theft Auto - The Collection

All the GTA on Spotify in one big posts. I never really though about GTA music, sure I liked it, even had some tracks saves up as favorites. But listening to all of these radio stations and posting all these blog posts I have realized the radio is a major part of this game, and now I am really looking forward to GTA V, and mostly for the soundtrack.

In this post I have gathered up all the posts I have made about GTA, and I also included a lot of links that have been posted before with GTA content, be it themes, ambient sounds or "Other".
