Miami Vice Wiki

Season 1 Season 2 Season 3 Season 4 Season 5

Season 2 of Miami Vice featured 96 songs during the course of its 22 episodes, although "Bass and Trouble" by Sly and Robbie appears twice, reducing the count of unique tracks to 95 (still by far the most of any season of the show).

As with season 1, the majority of the music featured is light pop, although a greater number of darker, more sombre tracks are used where appropriate. The first season's reliance on hit singles is scaled back, with a greater number of more obscure album tracks featured, while the amount of Latin music heard in the previous season is also reduced, in favor of more mainstream pop music.
