So we’ve covered the L.A. Noire Soundtrack and L.A. Noire Remixed Soundtrack in the previous post.  Many people including myself are searching for a list of the L.A. Noire L.A. Noire Cover Artlicensed music.  I have yet to find one, and no official music list has been released apart from those already mentioned.  So I took it upon myself to start a list. Working from tracks that I knew right off the bat and then searching for song titles based on the ones that I knew lyrics from. The difficulty in compiling an L.A. Noire licensed music list is that, first, it’s easy to get “lost” in just playing the game.  I am immersed in the stories and cases I’m working and forget to write things down.  The second factor is that the radio tracks are fairly rare throughout the game as the games’ excellent musical score takes over at many points.  Other times the dialog between the lead character and whoever happens to be in the car over-rides the song.  It is also infrequent that you enter a car when the radio announcer is introducing a song with title and artist. So this list is very incomplete.  I will slowly add to it as a recognize or research songs. Feel free to leave comments with other songs you recognize and I will try to confirm and add them. Here’s the L.A. Noire Music List:
