Yeh .

You tapped into long-forgotten -- and sometimes rather heated but punctuated with much laughter -- discussions I had with pals in the '80s regarding synths, New Wave, etc. because of that very TV show theme .

My point was that the 'Miami Vice' theme was very much a post-New Wave synth statement .

It had the latest synths on it, like the keyboards so heavy on the song 'Jump' (late 1983) from Van Halen, 'Jump (For My Love)' (early 1984) from The Pointer Sisters or the super-nice 'Rockit' (1983) from Herbie Hancock . Nice sounds . Looking back, of course it could all be considered part of New Wave .

Sometimes wonder if Thomas Dolby working with Foreigner as early as 1981 on their record called '4', playing keyboards on 'Waiting For A Girl Like You,' etc. was one of those events that made the expansion of Electropop into Mainstream Pop possible.

New Wave didn't really exist after 1983 to my ears / temperament or at least it had become an overripe fruit and had long been expanded, absorbed and incorporated into the other styles of music, especially Funk, Soul, R&B, Dance Music but also soundtracks ... like Jan Hammer - 'Miami Vice' (1985) .

But yeh, point well-taken, Mondo . :) :mrgreen:
