Themes and Stuff

Post by AndyGibsonTV »

Hey.

A few bits and stuff.

Was there ever a stereo version of Nation Of Domination (rapless), Thousand Masks and Rage/WrestleMania XV themes released?

Apart from that Nintendo 64 game, was Too Much's Entrance Video ever released or even a Too Sexy/Brian Christopher singles version. What about the classic graphics used for video backgrounds that the WWE used in the mid 1990's.

Like this for Razor Ramon Image

and the others Yokozuna, Sycho Sid, Undertaker etc had. You know the ones that just screamed "NINETIES".

Is the El Torito of Los Matadores the same one that competed at WWE Royal Rumble 1998 in a 6-man Tag amongst other Shotgun matches?

You know when they use Extreme Music, VideoHelper and all the ones that aren't done by Jim Johnston, Jimmy Hart etc. How do you guys find the music? Is there a site that lists all of them? There's some TV shows (non-wrestling) I watch which use production music but I've no idea how to source it.

And finally, is anyone here good with website building on Weebly and would be willing to take a few minutes (probably half an hour at the most) to help me with adding stuff to my own website. I'm following step-by-step instructions but I have learning difficulties and struggling to understand their wording. Plus, what they're telling me doesn't match what I have on my CSS/HTML editor.

It's to do with this section: Image (although that's not from my site, that's from the tutorial I'm using)

All I'm needing is for someone who is patient, and can break it down into a more simplified way for me to understand.

I have a few like this:

@font-face {
font-family: 'Gloucester MT Extra Condensed';
src: url('GloucesterMT-ExtraCondensed.woff2') format('woff2'),
url('GloucesterMT-ExtraCondensed.woff') format('woff');
font-weight: normal;
font-style: normal;
font-display: swap;
}


But where it's asking me to put it in, I don't have that section. I'm wondering if anyone on here is good with figuring out a workaround or something. I was thinking maybe TeamViewer if that would make it easier to help me with. I don't know. If anyone on here can give me some suggestions then I'd be very grateful. I have a few to add in but I think if someone was to really simplify this whole thing and help with the first 2 or 3, I might manage to do the rest myself.

Thank you for reading.

"Nation Of Domination" doesn't seems to exist in stereo.
"Thousand Masks" was only released on WWE: Uncaged XIV, it has never been available before. It is possible that it was only in mono as well.
"Rage" is in stereo in the Wrestlemania XV DVD menu. It is a slighty different version than the one from WWE: Uncaged IX, which is mono and is missing some instruments.

In a few occasions, music credits can be found during ending titles (sometimes only the music library will be credited but it's already a good information). Check the show/company website or IMDB too, just in case. The music library may add the name of the show or the channel/company that used their music, so take a look at their credits too. If the show you watch used a production track that you recognize from Extreme Music (for example), you can try to search in this same library first. It is possible that they commonly use the same library, but it's not always the case.
Shazam helps a lot nowadays, but there are production tracks that are not available to the public so they cannot be identified this way. In that case, sometimes, YouTube content ID "music in this video" can find the track for you if it's played clear enough. When it's not successful, we have to search by ourselves in multiple libraries with keywords (music genre, instruments, etc).

The two El Toritos are different. The latter El Torito from Los Matadores (aka Mascarita Dorada) didn't start wrestling until 2000.

There are also websites and browser add-ons that serve the same purpose of Shazam, though they can often be hit or miss. I used the Chrome extension "AHA Music" a little while back to identify all the production tracks in one of the 2K games and it successfully identified all but a few that I had to search for. I was feeding it clear audio files which likely helped, so if you're trying to use a recording with crowd and commentary over top it may not be as successful.

Thanks for the information.

I'm looking for some music used in Crimewatch UK (Britain's version of America's Most Wanted programme). There's a few bits of music used in their video packages.

I wasn't aware of 'AHA Music'. I'll go and give it a try. How does it work or how do we use it? Also is it 100% free all the time or do we have to pay a subscription after a trial ends?

I might also try the upload to YouTube thing just to see if it flags the 'music in this video'. I didn't realise YouTube did that automatically, I thought the uploader had to put it all in manually.

And Too Much's Entrance Video does exist. All-be-it only as a 56kv version from Early/Mid 1999.
I can post that if need be.

AHA Music is 100% free. No trial, no credit card needed. You can also upload files online to try and identify them but there's a limit of 10 a day. If there's only a few songs you want to identify that may be an easier and quicker option than installing the extension, especially since the extension only identifies music playing in the browser itself.

https://www.aha-music.com/identify-song ... ion-online

If you do decide to get the extension it's very easy to use. Once it's installed, when a piece of music is playing in the browser you just click the button for the extension and it will start "listening" to what's playing. It's really good for when the music is in a YouTube video and not matched by their system, which is how I mainly found the songs I needed.

I don't know what 56kv means but if you have it then I'd be very grateful, if it's not too much trouble.
