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.
