Lyle writes with horrifying news that the new Miami Vice film, out this weekend, has no trace of Jan Hammer's theme, let alone the original video, which saw Jan playing his Fairlight and running about with an attache case. The trailer for the new film has Jay-Z & Linkin Park's 'Numb-Encore'. Their video featured a guy playing piano with an MPD-16 drum pad. It's hardly the same thing...

pathetic... it's what I was most looking foward to, frankly...
awakened_yeti: Too bad linkin park isn't hiphop. But, if you look to your right you'll see Timbaland as one of the favorite producers here. Maybe if you're open for it, you could do some research before you post.
why should i give a fuck if timbaland is a "favorite producer" here? im not interested in sucking toms dick
ive done my research, and commercial hiphop blows monkeynuts.. heres a research tip for you dumbass - Jay Z| is a hiphop producer.. and Linkin Park has been slingin that shitty ass 311 style hiphop/rock garbage for years
yeh im not a fan of the mass market hiphop crap - but thats just my personal opinion.. im sure it wont stop the majority from jacking off to some Black Eyed Peas
its good for your brain - to wit: the "correction police".. get your end wet.. what a fucking retard
Whaaaa? They left out the Hammer? Oh My God. That's like forming a Beatles tribute band that consists of four Ringos. I intend to download this movie on bitorrent then overdub the Hammer when and where it's needed ie extended version at the beginning, all the way through the middle and several times at the end, then upload it to youtube for the pleasure of all here. I'll also cut in the attache case scene frequently. No need to thank me, just doing for free what some coke snorting latte hound got paid a zillion bucks for.
I thought Jay-Z was done "making music" and has become a political figure with his latest calls to boycott Cristal http://www.boingboing.net/2006/06/15/jayz_boycott_racist_.html
As far as the video goes, I stopped watching 20 seconds into it. Super lame. I wonder if Linkin park is trying to jump start their career again by teaming up with a Rap Star, just like Aerosmith and Run DNC back in the day.
The real gem of the Miami Vice OST is "Crocket's Theme", still as good as ever. And BTW, are you really surprised that it's not a good movie? They got "Ray" and an Irishman with a handlebar mustache as the lead characters...
Crocket's Theme is the much better track from Miami Vice. Miami Vice theme is cool in a kitch kind of way, Crocket's Theme is a pretty decent song in a real kind of way.
But regardless, the movie is not a "remake" of Miami Vice, it is supposed to be what Miami Vice was going to be until the networks watered it down and changed it up, and whack Don Johnson's ego ruined the series. Even though the trailer looks cheezy, I must say that Heat and Collateral were fresh movies.
there are some pretty good hip hop producers and rappers out there, with a big fetish for and use of nice gear, but you're still allowed to hate hip hop music. I really hate thee miami vice-tune, especially the "electric guitar", but i still think it's cool, because of it's nostalgia
Does anyone know where I can find a copy of the Miami Vice Theme '06 recently redone by Jan Hammer. I'm told by his management that this is a "Radio only release" and not available commercially. Any clue?
