Everybody freeze! Nobody move! We have an important announcement!
[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jan Hammer[/lastfm]‘s “Miami Vice Theme” is the Song of the Day, and when you hear it, be caller eleven and you’ll escape for three days and two nights to the Grand Beach Hotel, a luxury, all-suite oceanfront property that celebrates all of Miami’s romance.
And the answer is “NO.” You will not have to wear pastel colored suits in Miami if you win.
The “Miami Vice Theme” was created and performed by Jan Hammer in 1984 specifically for the television show Miami Vice. It aired during every episode of the show except for the pilot and the first three. Those episodes used a version without guitars, just the percussion and keyboards.
The song was released as a single in 1985 and would reach number one on the Billboard Charts. To date, it is also the last song to top the charts as an instumental. “Miami Vice Theme” won GRAMMY Awards for Best Instrumental Composition and Best Pop Instrumental Performance in 1986.
A fun fact about the “Miami Vice Theme:” The song played during the 1986 three-point competition at the NBA All-Star Weekend where Larry Bird famously walked into the locker room and told all the competition they were playing for second place.
