    Knowing Hollywood's penchant for updating stuff and making it "fresher", they might prefer the newer remake -- ironically by that icon of the 80s, Duran Duran...

    I guess it depends whether the new Vice will be set in the 80s, or updated to today. If today, it'll seem a bit odd to have actual 80s "standards" on the soundtrack. Perhaps 80s-esque songs, not actually from the 80s, would make more sense? Or new releases by 80s icons, e.g. Sunrise by aforesaid Duran.

    But two must-haves would surely be the main theme by Jan Hammer, and Crockett's Theme.

    Hmm. You've got to have some They Might be Giants in there. I'm trying to think of what's appropriate for Miami Vice. Maybe Don't Let's Start
