Music that must be in Mafia II
What music or songs may not miss in the game....
IN the first point I wished Bob Marley, but Bob was born in 1945. I wish that there would be music that i recognize.
Putting them ingame probably requires buying licence, so I doubt there will be many famous tracks like McGuire Sisters, The Platters,Buddy Holly, Sinatra or Richie Valens. Maybe some covers, who knows.
I loved music in Mafia. It is an esential part of the game.
In Mafia II there will be music created just for the game - their own music, but there will also be known, original and licenced songs of 40'th 50'th era for sure - Dan Vávra said it for GamesRadar.
But I think there will be more music composed just for game, though those songs will be played by radio stations so it should be a licenced music. And music created by 2K Czech composer could be part of dramatic moments - not in radio.

Frank Sinatra's songs should appear on radio stations
Don't forget the songs of Louis Prima. They should really be in the game
The Ink Spots?
Luis Armstrong and Frank Sinatra...they are a must-be
Anything that suits to the games story and plot would be good ... its also a very
important area ... music and sound effects should keep up to to the hype achieved
by Mafia 2 so far ...
I always thought that Jazz was a very good music genre to have playing.
Bob Marley, rofl I hope for dixieland bands on street ( )... swing is for sure... And good stuff can be made by OPSO, Ondrej Novy, R. A. Dvorsky, Ondrej Havelka and his Melody Makers, Bratislava Hot Serenaders, Orchestr Osvobozeného divadla (Voskovec+Werich/Jezek), The Swings; Sinatra, Armstrong - for sure...
Andrews Sisters, Benny Goodman, Arthur Tatum, Fire house five plus two, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, GEORGE GERSHWIN'S MUSIC, GLENN MILLER, Louis Prima , Oscar Peterson, SCOTT JOPLIN'S, Tommy Dorsey, Dizzy Gilespie, Bing Crosby, Count Basie, Jimmy Lunceford, Harry James, Mills Brothers, Artie Shaw, Judy Garland, Peggy Lee, June Christy, Stan Kenton, Billy Eckstein, Doris Day, Nat King Cole, Perry Como, Peggy Lee, Woody Herman, Mel Tormé, Lena Horn, Earl Bostic, Lionel Hampton...
It's sure that at least one composer/band shall be there
AND!!! One topic with this motive (what music or something like that) is on this forum opened... >.(
PLEASE ELISABETH COULD YOU PUT TOGETHER OR DELETE DOUBLE (motiveted) TOPICS?
I wonder if there's any Sicilian folk music.
Like Vitti 'Na Crozza, Tarantella Cefalů, Ciuri Ciuri, 'A Luna Ammenzu 'U Mari and others.
I'd really like to hear Rosemary Clooney in Mafia II.
But there are LOADS of music I'd like to hear, 50s and (sadly for Mafia II) for sure 60s were really a golden ages for music (rock n' roll! :-) ). Everly Brothers (Wake Up Litle Suzie, All I Have To Do Is Dream), The Crew Cuts (Earth Angel), Nat King Cole, Dean Martin (Sway), The Platters (Only You), The Chorettes (Lollipop) Bo Diddley (damn, this kind of music reminds me the Vietcong game a lot), Chuck Berry, Bill Healy and The Comets (I guess you all know - Rock Around The Clock) ...

Some Frank Sinatra on the soundtrack would be cool... Thats Life

Elvis Presley. His songs could really fit the late 50s part of the game. (Hound Dog, Too Much, Don't Be Cruel and such...)
Music of the 50's saw a great change in popular music. In the beginning of the 50's it was a carry over from the Big Band/Easy Listening era, but as the years moved forward we began to hear Doo ☺☺☺ music. And then, when Elvis entered the music kingdom, it was the birth of Rock & Roll. Teenagers came forth with a new type of dancing at the sock hops, and the popular fashion for the girls was poodle skirts and bobby sox, and white t-shirts and jeans for the boys.
The boys wore their hair in a DA or Duck's Butt with a lot of grease to keep it in place (a little dab'll do ya), and a true girlish teeny bopper wore her hair in a poni-tail. The music was sometimes called the "bubble gum" music, and the new singers and groups became our "teen idols." In the late 50's we even got our own TV show - Dick Clark's American Bandstand!
Below is a list of some famous singers in the 50's. However It's not a complete list.
- Elvis Presley
- Red Foley
- Perry Como
- Frankie Laine
- Tony Bennett
- Guy Mitchell
- Mario Lanza
- The Fontane Sisters
- Fats Domino
- Jerry Lee Lewis
Well it's kind of cheating cause it was released around 1960, but Beyond The Sea by Bobby Darin
Im pretty sure it was in Goodfellas or something.
honestly, i think the general feel of the first games music was pretty much perfect so i expect them to do something similar with the second and i dont have any doubts that they will get it right
cause based on that main theme of mafia 2 song that we all heard i think that pretty much shows it's going to have good music for the game just like the first one.
Hmm... Music from the 1940s and 1950s that I would like to hear in Mafia II...
Ink Spots ("My Prayer," "If I Didn't Care," "Stormy Weather," "Paper Doll")
Mills Brothers ("Glow Worm," "Sweet Georgia Brown," "Across the Alley from the Alamo")
Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie ("Dream A Little Dream of Me," "Paper Moon," "Blue Moon")
Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra ("Green Eyes," "And Her Tears Flowed Like Wine," "Woogie Boogie")
Glen Miller Orchestra ("In the Mood," "Chattanooga Choo Choo," "Moonlight Serenade")
Andrews Sisters ("Three Little Fishes," "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," "Rum and Coca Cola")
The Platters ("Twilight Time," "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," "Only You and You Alone")
Chuck Berry, Peggy Lee, The Four Aces, Frank Sinatra, Dinah Shore, Bing Crosby, Frankie Laine, Johnny Mercer, Patti Page, Ames Brothers, Teresa Brewer, The Chordettes, Connie Francis, etc. Too many to name...
On a side note, I greatly prefer Count Basie to Louis Armstrong, although I like both artists. Basie's style had a soft coolness that was quite the opposite of Louis Armstrong's louder sound.

Possibility to customize your radio stations will be good.
