"Today's a Beginning" is a song by Brian Ray, recorded exclusively for Miami Vice in 1984. It appeared in the episode "Give a Little, Take a Little".


  • Other than its use in the show, the song has not appeared on any album or as a single, making it one of the few Miami Vice songs never to see a release in any form outside of the episode in which it was used.
  • The song appears both as an instrumental, and as a version with vocals by Jill Colucci (as confirmed by Brian Ray himself). Colucci also sang the opening theme to America's Funniest Home Videos during the Bob Saget era.
  • Brian Ray played guitar for hits by Paul McCartney, Etta James and Santana.
