Regarding 11) referred to as Unknown Music #15, Iīve received the following feedback: ""Francis Monkman solo performance on Sky 2 album". However I've listened to Sky and Sky 2 complete albums (at least what's available online and the only ones recorded with Monkman in the band's line up) and this track is, apparently, nowhere to be found. If anyone can help digging up, if available, this one track from the first Sky two albums [Sky and Sky 2]Iīd appreciate. Of course, it could be from a recorded live version and on that, there is nothing available online. Still pending to check the Curved Air discography, though. Thank you.

     I listened to the downloads, so I'm not sure how they match up with the YouTube videos. The Download labeled "1985 Lakers (Music From NBA Films)" is a classical piece. It is "The Thieving Magpie" by Gioacchino Rossini.

     Also, I don't know what it is, but I believe "1984 Pride And Passion" and "Return To Glory" are the same piece of music.

Thanks for the addition to the Mystery List. The YT clips and the mp3 files actually are not 100 % matched, although, considering your reply, Iīve edited the list including only the unknown themes from 1980 to 1989.

Here it is.

List updated and considerably narrowed down since I think itīd be wise to request first only the ones Iīm having most trouble finding.

Iīll leave a few notes regarding what I think of each one and based on feedback received from many other users.

11 - To my knowledge, this was used in NBA films, consecutively, from 1983 to 1986. Specifically in the following films: 1983 Sixers "That Championship Feeling"; 1984 Celtics "Pride And Passion"; 1985 Lakers "Return To Glory"; and 1986 Celtics "Sweet Sixteen". Received feedback that this might be a Francis Monkman composition, to what Iīd be inclined to agree, based on itīs keyboard/synth and rythm. This has to be at least from 1983 although itīs not on any of the Monkman featured Bruton CDīs. Not known to have been even used in NFL films. Unknown library.

12 - This one may be more familiar, as it has been used, again, to my knowledge, in a wide array of platforms/commercials than, for example, track 14. Received feedback that this one was used in:

- 1983 USFL  "What a Feeling" - feedback from YT user George Dickson.
- 1983 to 1985 Local Pontiac Dealer Commercials - specific commercial not confirmed (feedback from YT user George Dickson)
- 1984 NBC Baseball Game Of The Week Pre-Game Show - segment on Pete Rose
- 1986 Boston Celtics "Sweet Sixteen" NBA film

Uses piano and brass/trumpet, this piece is at least from 1983. Unknown library.

13 - Used in 1987 Lakers "Drive For Five" film and also in 1988 NFL Primetime highlights, segment on 1988 Bills @ Colts (clip from YT user Mvemjsunpx. Sounds FirstCom Mid-Tempo discontinued albums). This is whatīs referred about this track on this userīs blog: "Primetime Usage - 1988; Featured Highlight - Colts @ Bills, 1988; It sets a similar mood to Communique (note: Communique is a theme from 1985 album FirstCom UT104 - Powersurge, composed by Mary Therese Matthews and Sally Anne Griffith), but has more of an energetic, "cool rock" feel.  This Colts/Bills highlight is the only one to use this track that I'm aware of."

Hereīs a link to a copy of the aforementioned Communique track:
hxxp://www.mediafire.com/file/id62x6xtlbp4gou/32._Communique_1%29.mp3

Probably from FirstCom UT or MT series.

14 - Used in 1984 "Pride and Passion" and 1986 "Sweet Sixteen" Boston Celtics films. This is, at least, from 1984. Received feedback on the late LMT forum that this was used in commercials, outside of sports usage. Contagious boogie, synth, not sure of which library this one might be.

19 - Used since 1992 in NBA films, specifically in: 1992 Bulls; 1992 The NBA Dream Team; and 1993 Magic Johnson "Always Showtime" Not much information ont his track, sounds that could be from early 90īs Koka Library Music, but again my knowledge on this one is limited to a degree.

23 - Used in Michael Jordanīs Playground and 1992 The NBA Dream Team. Could be a theme from Full Force All Stars based on background humming from one of the characters on 0:11 of this video. No clue of which music library this comes from, or if itīs even library music.

Any additional information that I can gather regarding these tracks, will be posted.

With the helpful tip from a8detective, finally got a hold of the version of Rossiniīs "The Thieving Magpie" used in the 1985 Lakers film.

The version used, or at the least the closest that I could find compared to the one used in the film, is this:

Gioacchino Rossini - Thieving Magpie Overture - Landscape Classics (LSC) music library.

Again, my thanks to a8detective. :D

Not that it's all that important, honestly, but I don't think you're right about LSC being the origin of the Rossini arrangement - they're a CD-era label that released stuff from the mid-90's onwards, and that CD in particular seems to be from 2001.

You are correct on your assessment, as the version described was released, according to the APM Music site, in 1995. And the one used in the 1985 Lakers film has to be at least from that year. Considering that the one from LSC is the closest (as referred in the previous post) and very similar to the used in the film, that does not mean that Iīm not in active search of the correct one.  ;) Hope I keep finding, with the help from all you guys, more of these long lost music pieces.

35 and 36 identified:

35) Fletcher Henderson - St. Louis Blues
36) Stevie Wonder - Go Home (Instrumental)

Please give me a hand with the ones that remain unknown, as some of the themes that keep popping up turn out not to be library music themes. Thank you!
