"Ship Of Fools" is a song performed by Robert Plant, recorded on the album Now and Zen in 1988. The song appeared in the Miami Vice series finale "Freefall".


  • When the album Now and Zen was re-released on CD in 2007, a 10:35 live version of this song was included.
  • The song is one of the most lyrically literal pieces of music used to accompany a scene in Miami Vice; while it is playing, Crockett and Tubbs are on a boat and are "fools" in the sense that they are ignorant of the true nature of the case they are involved in.
