Re: Anybody Else Miss Jim Johnston Themes?

I thought that was the opinion of adult WWE fans in general. He made themes sound like they were made for that specific superstar (because a lot of them were). These days, they might get a list of music to choose from (if they're lucky) and they sound pretty similar.

Re: Anybody Else Miss Jim Johnston Themes?

This is what I'm talking about right here.

The lyrics are nice, but doesn't have anywhere NEAR the same effect as this:

Re: Anybody Else Miss Jim Johnston Themes?

What are the last themes that Jim Johnston has created? It seems like CFO has been doing the majority of themes for a while now.

Lol looks like someone's nostalgia is getting the best of them. CFO$ is just as good as Johnson if not better. Johnson has worked for the company for decades and has only made about 5 really good themes. CFO$ is nailing it right now.

Re: Anybody Else Miss Jim Johnston Themes?

I miss that awesome organ sound on a lot of the older themes. Especially in the harder rocking themes, like Vader's. He had a great sense of how to create something memorable and unique for a wrestler, but still keeping it in a certain sound that ended up defining WWE musically for a long time.


You're a frog.

Re: Anybody Else Miss Jim Johnston Themes?

Lol at anybody mentioning CFO$ in the same breath as JJ; they make 40 seconds of music and then loop it for 4 minutes; JJ makes real fucking songs.

Sorry, dude...

I disagree.

Jimmy use to crap out songs like these with little effort.

Now THAT is hype.

And that's not even anywhere close to his best track.

Re: Anybody Else Miss Jim Johnston Themes?

Johnson's Attitude Era themes are legendary. Kane's original theme, Taker's darkside and ministry themes. Today's are so lame.

1.Rock
2.Austin
3.Bret Hart
4.Kevin Nash
5.Scott Hall

You've described Ambrose' theme perfectly.
