Stevie Wonder song soundtracks new GTA V trailer

The Grand Theft Auto series is historically one of the biggest sync opportunities in the entire video games sector - and it looks like Stevie Wonder's Skeletons will be making a key appearance in upcoming Rockstar title GTA V. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

Song choice was great IMO.

This is the best song choice I've seen in recent trailers. SO GLAD IT WASN'T MORE DUBSTEP!

Are you seriously getting mad since 28 people don't share the same opinion with you?

Anything Stevie made could be included and I'd love it. Stevie Wonder is God.

Well that looks stunning to say the least!

I don't like his type of music. I personally find it boring. I think they should of went with rap or metal. I think that fits GTA more.

GTA has always had a wide range of music, a little something for everyone. Both of the songs used in the two GTAV trailers have been awesome.

Also, I'm not sure if you've noticed, but no one really gives a flying flip about your opinion.

You find Stevie Wonder boring?
-Gespenst-  +   1179d ago
Completely classless.

Metal? I mean I listen to metal (though I'm very picky about it) but metal? Really? There's a time and a place for it.

This song is just so slick, and it works with the tone and the rhythm of the trailer really well.

My favourite kind of music is metal.

BUT, if you tried to put Bloodbath's 'So You Die' over this trailer it would ruin it. In fact any metal wouldn't work. Even the awful poppy stuff. Same goes for Hip Hop.

I think the choice of Stevie Wonder's 'Skeletons' fit the trailer unbelievably well. Maybe Mika needs to get past his musical naivete. I remember being younger and hating everything that wasn't thrash. Then I realised I didn't have to just listen to Slayer. I could listen to Arethra Franklin, Electric Light Orchestra and NWA as well.

On a sidenote 'Skeletons' is also the song Argyle is listening to whilst waiting for John McClane in the carpark.

Exactly, i listen to both Metal and Rap but i don't see em as GTA type music.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1179d ago
No just no....

You'll never get out of that one-bubble rut at this rate, Mika.

Awome singer, nice choice

I don't usually dig Stevie Wonder, his songs all sound too similar to me, but this song is actually phenomenal! Sooo catchy and funky.

He has a unique voice just like Hip-Hop Gamer
beerkeg  +   1179d ago
Lol! josephayal, your comments crack me up on the whole, but this is exceptional.

Anyone that thinks josephayal makes serious comments is missing out, I find this dude hilarious.
MxRBrobaFett  +   1179d ago
He'll probably be ecstatic to see that his music got chosen
torchic  +   1179d ago
the song choice was perfect, perfect petfect trailer,

Stevie's music plays for the president, now for GTA. Stevie owns the world and I love it.
