Season 1 Season 2 Season 3 Season 4 Season 5

Season 4 of Miami Vice featured 59 songs during the course of its 22 episodes, although Peter Gabriel's "We Do What We're Told" had previously been used in season 3 and the 6 songs used in "A Bullet for Crockett" had all featured in previous episodes of the show, while Sheena Easton's recording of "I Got You Babe" appears twice, reducing the count of unique tracks to 51. The rock trend of season 3 continues, and a large amount of electronic and dark new wave material also appears.


  • While season 4 did not feature any songs written exclusively for the show, Sheena Easton's cover of "I Got You Babe" was recorded specially for Miami Vice.
  • All of the songs used in "A Bullet for Crockett" had been featured in previous episodes, and most of the repeated songs appear in flashbacks to the scene(s) where they were originally used.
  • Largely due to the above episode, season 4 featured the most repeated songs of any season of the show, with 8 tracks that had appeared previously on Miami Vice.
  • Season 4 also features the only episode of the entire series to feature no popular music whatsoever -- "Hell Hath No Fury..." features only Jan Hammer and John Petersen's score.
  • Most songs used in an episode: 5 - "A Bullet for Crockett"
  • Least songs used in an episode: 0 - "Hell Hath No Fury..."
  • Most songs by the same artist: 4 - Sheena Easton
