Two wrestling themes
« on: July 24, 2020, 09:41:43 AM »
I've uploaded these in the past but the website that was hosting them shut down. So I'm reuploading them in the hopes someone found out where they are from.

I've searched very thoroughly through every label imaginable from the 80/90s and have found nothing sadly.

I'm not very knowledgeable in 80's and 90's library, but speaking as a former die hard wrestling fan (from WWF 80's era), I can tell you that back then a lot of the music used was commercially released stuff and not library music. That may be the case with these. They could also be some long lost US library too (there were plenty), which may be why you're having issues online finding the stuff. That's a few suggestions.

Have you tried Arcadia? They have such a huge library I haven't finished going through it yet, but I've seen their music turn up in some sports-related stuff before.

A little bit, I went through them. But it's such a huge place. Were the songs ever included in big leagues like, NFL, MLB, NBA? If so, there's a chance the WWF might have used them. But where do you start? They have a weird way of ordering their albums.

Well, a little news on this. I got a response back from NFL Films! They said they want a link to the documentary where NFL Films used the song and would be glad to help me out. So awesome!

Hope they saved notes on what music was used in that 1993 doc.

I never played any of the WWF games but could it be from one of the video game soundtracks?? Listen to this, it sounds very similar to the first one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8CK8rVhciY
It might have been used in one of the PlayStation or Saturn games.

Wondering if anyone had some leads to these two themes?

If you possibly can, could you write the dates for each of the recordings, it may help with limiting which libraries they could be from.

Here it is -

1 - November 1998 promo (but used it even prior to this throughout 1998, don't know when they truly started though)
2 - Super Bowl XXVII - A Man and His Moment (1993 NFL Films)
3 - 1999 doc on Austin vs. McMahon
4 - 1999 doc on Austin vs. McMahon
5 - Best of Survivor Series 1987-1997 (1998 doc)
6 - 1997 Bret Hart promo
7 - October 1998 promo

Awesome Craig! Thank you so much for giving me the download for that "Ain't Nothin' But A Party" theme. I appreciate it.

Like I've said before, I've gone through a lot of libraries the WWF used and found 95% of what I'm looking for. These two are the only ones causing trouble and that I'm desperate to find. Something tells me they're from a small library like the Magazine Records you found that the WWF and WCW used surprisingly. For that NFL Film doc from 1993, I know they used stuff from Happy Records, KPM, Sonoton, Atmosphere and probably some FirstCom. But This orchestra one eludes us as well as the sci-fi/nature sounding one. I did contact NFL Films for the orchestra theme, guy said he was gonna look at the records but then said he couldn't find it or something to that effect, although he probably just didn't want to spend time on this. They know what it is, sadly I couldn't get an answer from them.

Thank you for the help!

Right, does anyone know the production theme that plays at 1:01 of this intro of Survivor Series 2002, I would appreciate any input. Thanks.
