Does Music play on the jukeboxes in Bioshock

well it's music from the 40s i believe. one of the guys working on this actually asked his dad what the slow jams were back in the day, like what was played at USO dances and such. most of the jukes i've used skip or cut out. only songs i know really are that "jesus loves me, this i know" song the splicers sing and the song with german in it is "bei mir bist du schon", which i only know from the movie Swing Kids.

i'm kind of disappointed with the soundtrack disc in the limited edition. you think it'd be a couple of those older songs. not moby remixes.

yer its a bit gutting

Is 'Beyond the sea' by Bobby Darin like in the launch trailer

Some of them are automatically playing when you first 'encounter' them but once the songs stops they don't seem to always work again. In Sinclair's Spirits there is one that plays 'How much is that doggy in the window?', which had me giggling =P

Some of them are just broken throughout though. I'm guessing that if a soundtrack was released it might include all of the jukebox songs as a bonus.

2K couldn't put the collection of '40's songs in with the L.E. because there are some massive financial royalties attached to each of those songs. Purchasing the rights to use Beyond the Sea in game and in trailers is a hell of a lot cheaper than purchasing the rights to sell it on a CD.

I posted in this thread (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=36610) a link to download the Orchestral score from Bioshock for free. It's been buried with locked threads since then though.

I love the music when Cohen thinks you betrayed him. I can't put my finger on the name, and it's all instrumental so you can't look it up, but it's this ballet music, and i sat there with my grenade launcher blowing up splicers to it.
