Season 5 of Miami Vice featured 50 unique songs during the course of its 21 episodes, the fewest of any season of the show. It also features the most rock music of any season, coinciding with Tim Truman's largely rock-orientated score music.
- Tim Truman's songs "Everything Inside of Me", "No Way Out" (with Don Johnson) and "Help Me Through The Night" (with Phil Perry) were written exclusively for season 5 of the show.
- Furthermore, several episodes feature "fake" songs, instrumentals composed by Tim Truman posing as popular music, as part of the soundtrack (such as in clubs or playing on radios). The use of original material composed by Truman instead of real songs is no doubt indicative of the show's shrinking music budget.
- Most songs used in an episode (two-hour): 8 - "Freefall"
- Most songs used in an episode (one-hour): 4 - "Heart of Night", "Bad Timing"
- Least songs used in an episode: 1 - "The Cell Within", "Over the Line", "Miracle Man"
- Most songs by the same artist: 4 - the Swingle Singers, all in "Jack of All Trades"
†"Jack of All Trades" contained only score music by the Swingle Singers.
††"Miracle Man" contained no pop music.
