Here is a spreadsheet I did in November last year:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/wdbm5un8h ... -11-09.ods

"Datum benutzt" = Date used (I tried to find the earliest date a certain theme was used.)
"Datum veröffentlicht" = Date released (Date the song was released for the first time.)

Some things might be a bit off, but it might be a help for some people.

Nice work. What do the yellow and orange cells mean?

The yellow cells are entries of songs which are/were simply unknown to me. For example, "Beastly Beauty" or "Becoming Legend". I coloured them, so I could find them easier. Same thing with the orange cells. I don't remember why I coloured them differently though.

From Jackson's list:

Be a Boomer sounds familiar to me, wasn't this JR's theme in WWE '12?
Cluckers is the song from the KFC commercials.
Crazy Stupid Love Show was a special on the Network, so this has to be from that.
Innovator is one of Dreamer's themes.
Made of Ivory is obviously Ivory's theme.

The number of entries on Jim's page has gone up by 3 recently, though the only new entry I was able to find by skimming through was "WWE Signature Music 2004" (BMI Work # 25942401). It's possible the others might just be BG Cues, which usually have a BMI Work # of 0 and might require a bit more searching to determine which ones are new.

Just found this entry:
Grew Up In Marieville (BMI Work # 25436223)
The wikipedia page for that city only lists one person: "Kevin Owens, WWE wrestler, was raised in Marieville".

Found a few more "new" entries:

"What A Rush" (duplicate of the other one already there)
"Legendary" (likely from the WWE Studios film of the same name)
"Shane McMahon Entrance Theme" (self-explanatory)

I remember seeing the title “El Matador” in JJ’s BMI. Isn’t it safe to assume that’s the actual title for Tito Santana’s 4th theme?

Johnston has a lot of entries simply listed as the wrestlers' name and Tito Santana wrestled as "El Matador" around 1993.

---
A few titles from Johnston's JASRAC page (basically the Japanese version of BMI)

Alt. title for "Snow-Man"?: "Head Games" / "Snow Theme"
Entry not on BMI: "Another Saturday Night"
Alt. title for "I Love You": "Brother Love Music"
Entry not on BMI: "Don't Mess With Me"
"Druids" / "Druid Theme"
Alt. title for "Enchanted Isle": "Enchanted"
"The Hard Funk Of It"
Alt. title for "Holla If Ya Hear Me": "Hear Me"
? "I Know It's Not Time (Rick Wade Remix)"
? "I Love You Momma"
Jack Swagger's Theme: "Patriot"
? "Ring Games"
Stevie Richards: "Bring Down The Fun"
Alt. title for "Unstable": "Ultimatum"

This song is featured in the movie "No One Lives".

I think it's a reference to The Patriot (wrestler).

Also, keep in mind, many wrestlers have several or even dozens of unused themes and mixes, since Jim usually does a few at once and WWE picks the one they like, so things like "Head Games" could be like an unused heel theme for Al Snow as well. It's also just as possible that "Head Games" was the original title and it was one of the many, many themes renamed over the years.

ThemeTitan said there's probably 20x as many unreleased themes in their library as their are used ones.

Are you sure 1990?

Mid way to the end of the tv cut into the vocal track I'm sure it goes.

You are a Warrior Superssssssssssssssssttttttttttttarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwoooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Superstar, Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, Thats What You Are, Superstarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Wooooooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I think that vocal one is Warrior Superstar and the one called Superstars/SuperStars of Wrestling is 1990.

Jim Johnston recently added (next to Uncaged titles) the songs "Canopy" and "Mine" featuring Mercy Drive and "Thank God For Friday Nights" featuring the Doug Allen Band.

"Canopy" and "Mine" are both songs from the days of Big Mother Thruster (prior to Mercy Drive), and are available on Corey Lane's website: http://coreylane.net/audio.html

Jim Johnston added over 300 "new" entries to his BMI page. Most of them are pretty generic.
Thankfully you can sort the newer entries on his SABAM page.

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
12
13
14
15

Despite their recent addition, the BMI work numbers indicate that they are older (if that makes any sense to you). Perhaps, some work numbers expired or something...

Edit: I noticed that some entries from his SABAM page are not on his BMI page (and vice versa), or at least not yet.
I also love that Jim Johnston has an entry titled "Johnston James Alan" [BMI Work # 12951245]. :lol:

Fiesta is a remix of Angel Garza's theme song with lyrics and vocals by Bonnie Godiva and Sergio Veneno V12.
