For those into Techno / Electro, definitely check the remixes by FPU.

See here: FPU - Crockett's Theme / Ocean Drive (especially the outstanding vocal remake from Tiga).

Crockett's Theme could well be one of the most emotional pieces of (electronic) music I've ever heard. Shame on me it only came on to me via the GTA: Vice City soundtrack, but hey, I was born in 1982 so this may be not my own fault alone. Have yet to check out Jan Hammer's other worky, but this one is already outstanding. So much for people saying that electronic music never can carry the same emotion like "hand made" music (i.e. rock or whatever they call it).

A song with a melody you can listen too forever? That's what Jan Hammer made here, the main theme for the tv series Miami Vice, most often called Crockett's Theme. One of the finest melodies of all time that will always be remembered, and will always be one of the true classics of the 80's. This song is categorized as synth pop, but should also be mentioned inside electo and amibent music. A true classic i will never remove from my playlist ;)
