This song was used in the season 1 episode of Miami Vice
, "Give a Little, Take a Little," which aired December 7, 1984. The song peaked at #5 on the Hot 100 just two weeks earlier, so it was still very hot when the show aired. This was a boon for Miami Vice
, which was fashioned after MTV and relied on contemporary music from big-name artists. In an unusual move, NBC released a soundtrack album to the series that featured this track along with others used in season 1, "Smuggler's Blues
" and "In The Air Tonight
" among them. It was wildly successful, going to #1 on the Albums chart in November 1985, where it stayed for a remarkable 11 weeks.
