Jimmy Hart Discusses The Wrestling Themes He Produced; Shares Who Had The Best Singing Voice

Jimmy Hart's musical contributions to the wrestling industry are Hall of Fame worthy in their own right.

The legendary manager recently spoke with Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp (full interview above) and revealed that he is doing well and still hanging out with Hulk Hogan, who he managed for many years, to this day.

"Oh, my gosh. Of course, me and Hulkster still hanging out together," Hart said. "But we’re doing promotion for WWE. They bring me out for a lot of the major shows and I guess a lot of the people out there still remember ‘the Mouth of the South’ Jimmy Hart and a lot of the people I use to manage. So, it’s been great."

Along with being one of the most memorable managers in wrestling history, The Mouth of the South also wrote and produced some of the most iconic themes, including Ted DiBiase and Shawn Michaels'. Hart told Fightful that of all the wrestlers he worked with, The Honky Tonk Man had the best voice of them all.

"You know what? Ted DiBiase did a great job. He kinda did the rap when me and my partner wrote his song, ‘Money, Money, Money.’ Shawn Michaels did a good job. When we took Shawn in and I cut ‘Sexy Boy’ that we wrote with Shawn Michaels. So, he was good. But, the Honky Tonk Man had the best voice of all," Hart revealed.

While his musical contributions weren't spoken of much back in the day, Hart is proud of his work and how many themes he was the mind behind. He added the following:

"We didn’t talk too much about it back then. We did ‘Sexy Boy’ Shawn Michaels, Ted DiBiase’s song. We the Road Warriors. Gosh, we did so many it’s hard to remember them all. Nasty Boys, Earthquake, Typhoon, the list just goes on. The Mountie. Remember the Mountie’s song? The Rougeau’s we did, ‘We don’t like heavy metal. We don't like rock and roll. All we like to listen to is Barry Manilow. Hey!’ People would boo them out of the building. If I said Metallica or Led Zeppelin, people would say, ‘Yeah! That’s cool!’ So, we kinda did reverse psychology."

When Hulk Hogan joined WCW in 1994, Hart went along with him. As for whether or not the music side of the business was something Ted Turner's company was looking for out of him, Hart shared that it was something they wanted.

"Yeah," he said. "We went over there and they wanted to do a lot of the music, which we did and everything else, too. It was not a big plan to jump over there. Hulk and I were out doing a show called Thunder in Paradise after we took a break from WWF—WWE of course—and there was just something that fell into place back then."

Over the course of his career, Hart managed names such as Hulk Hogan, The Hart Foundation, The Million Dollar Man, Dino Bravo, The Giant, and many more. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005.
