Jim Johnston on the creation of the Fandango theme song

WWE.com is featuring an article with WWE composer Jim Johnston where he talks about the creation of the Fandango theme song and the "Fandangoing" craze on the internet.

"We wanted a piece of music that said dance as opposed to a piece of music that was good to dance to. I thought the rhythm that was most associated with dance that most people would know would be the cha-cha. So I went with that. As I always do, there’s no particular formula other than I just pick up a guitar or sit down at the piano and start poking away at stuff until something mysteriously sounds like, ‘Oh yeah, that’s it.’"

WWE also posted a video clip of Johnston talking about the theme below.
