Season 4 of Miami Vice featured 71 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 63.
The trend towards darker music that began with the previous season continues, with new wave and alternative acts dominating, although some lighter, more commercial pop still appears. The amount of rock music that is featured also continues to increase. Once again, the majority of the songs used are more obscure album tracks rather than singles that could be found in the charts.
- Anita Morris' "Wrapped Up" and "Together As One" and Moon and the Blowguns' "Rubber Love" were written exclusively for season 4 of the show. Sheena Easton's cover of "I Got You Babe" was also 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.
