Spec Ops: The Line Soundtrack?

#1 Posted by kenjisalk (108 posts) -

Is there a list of the licensed music used in the game? I can't seem to find one anywhere and I love the way the game implements the songs to highlight moments in combat.

Nope. Did a search for it yesterday, as well.

#3 Posted by kenjisalk (108 posts) -

Man, I'm going to have to compile a list with my smartphone's song identifier app then.

So far I've got:

Deep Purple - Hush

The Black Angels - The First Vietnamese War

I guess I can just keep editing this post as I play if anyone wants me to.

Oh, I thought you meant the actual OST. I find that far more interesting than the licensed songs.

I'm currently on chapter 10 and fighting in the aquatic center and the music playing is pretty awesome. Any one know if it's from an actual song?

Is Toto's Hold The Line in the game?

I know there's another Black Angel's song that plays during the big fight in Chapter 4 but I don't know what its name is.

"Bad Vibrations", Damn that DJ had good taste.

Pretty sure I heard some Mogwai in there at one point. Might have been the song Glasgow Mega Snake.

I believe there is one more track by Mogwai which is unlisted.

I recorded one of gunfights earlier, and cannot recognize it:

http://rghost.ru/39029522 (it's clearer from 0:55)

Does anyone know what it is?

Same here. I'd love to know the tune played during the ending sequence, when Walker confronts Konrad and they're standing infront of the mirror.

As someone who enjoys VG music a lot I feel obliged to share the love. It's really hard to find the original score but luckily some guy ripped them all from the game disk and uploaded them through YouTube (just check his playlist.)

Oh my God I love you.
