uhhh. snoop dogg (lion)? :lol:

i liked the songs from Live 98-2000, as they had a very jazzy feel thanks to the NBA Live Orchestra. I was a big fan of the Live 2000 soundtrack as a whole.

you seem to have also neglected They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.). I can't not think of NBA Street Vol. 2 when i hear this song

I never played Vol. 2 and haven't heard the song before, so it wasn't a candidate I had in mind. ;)

This is the worst Friday Five yet. If this keeps up I won't read these days later when I'm bored and remember you do them every Friday.

Though I guess I should just bump the intro thread since these are kinda those and that one is also as offensive. (Although they do play over the menus. Especially Showdown.)

I expect a correction to be issued.

And also all the Live 99 stuff which is PETRA APPROVED.

The Showdown music reminds me a lot of the Live 95 (PC) music

The SNES version of '95 had a very similar arrangement, too.

My favourite line of the 2k11 theme is "That's the G way when you play 2k"

Pretty good list overall. To me, Live 06 had the most memorable songs. I'd have these two in my list:

The "lookin' at my watch" bit ALWAYS got in my head.

I'd say most of my favorite songs were from Live 2000 and 2004-06

06's soundtrack was definitely solid overall, with only a couple of songs I didn't enjoy all that much.
