American Gladiators Ringtone

I've been watching the new American Gladiators and it sucks. The more I watch, the more I want to stop. The original one was so much better. So that got me thinking, I wish I could watch the original. All I could find were small clips on YouTube, but a few of those piqued my interest. A few of the clips had the original theme song in them. I decided I wanted that for my ringtone, but alas I could not find a good version on the tubes without voice-overs. That's when I decided to take things into my own hands.
I broke out Finale and started writing the notes. First the melody, then a second part, then a third. I ended with three part harmony that, I feel, closely resembles the original music. I mixed the three part harmony of trumpets over top of the same harmony of french horns (to give it more of a round tone). The final result was this.
