Dark Angel (I come in peace) has been released on blue ray recently, so maybe i will be able to extract full Jan's score without voices and sfx

I don't know if this has been released ?!

From early Season 1 - I think from "Give a little...." :D Dont know it appeared in any other episodes - I seem to recall one more?!

This cue appeared in No Exit and Give a Little, Take a Little. Main theme from Better Through Chemistry is reworked version of Party Girls.

I recently saw part of "A Night In Heaven" and didn't know Jan did any of the music. I instantly recognized his track when it came on. This movie came out in 1983' date=' so the sound was very close to the first two seasons of Vice.It was cool.[/quote']Yeah, I have the LP. It's got the modern Miami Vice "JAN HAMMER" sound. I just wish the HAMMER tracks didn't have singing over them.

Lol, so true. The "singing" kinda ruins it. "Like what you see" actually sounds like the predecessor of the Miami Vice theme. I'm so glad Jan got another shot with this music....it would have been such a shame if it had gone under and into the abyss of unknownness since A Night a Heaven was such a flop.

Jan did the theme tune to a show called 'The Tube', was on in the 80's over here in the UK, was a music entertainment show where all the popular bands would play Live ;)I do have a copy of it, although I cant find an example on Youtube unfortunately

Do you mean this one?

I also found this variation, where it says " Jeff Beck, Jan Hammer, and Trevor Horn's classic theme tune to an unforgettable Tyne Tees/Channel 4 TV show: The Tube." -->

And yes, in secret admirer there's at least one cue he already used in Miami Vice. It's the scene where the parents brawl at the card game. (or whatever game that was) Pretty funny scene actually. :D
