Smuggler's Blues - Glenn Frey
Miami Vice Theme - Jan Hammer
You Belong to the City - Glenn Frey
Take Me Home - Phil Collins

I went with "You Belong to the City" with "Miami Vice Theme" a close second.

All are good songs especially "You Belong to the City" but on Miami Vice 2 Soundtrack there is a sleeper song in "The Last Unbroken Heart" with Bill Champlin from Chicago and Patti LaBelle.

I like that song too.  Shame it never became a single.  I bet it would have been a big hit

You're getting tired of reading this poster's gall
If tact he'd resume
That would be a treat
But you can see his flaming does repeat
His posts are bores
And you wanna scream
Not seeing this spam would be like a dream

You don't care where he's going
But you know where he's been...

I'm done now  ;)  ;D

This is a poll, not an I Hate Miami Vice thread.  If you don't like any of the songs, then why even bother to post in this poll?

For me, it's a close one between the "Miami Vice Theme" and "Crockett's Theme", but I have to go with "Crockett's Theme". That song is just so beautiful and haunting.

I gotta say, Jan Hammer is an instrumental genius. The things he can do with a synthesizer are just unbelievable.
