Thank You to Rory Penland for bringing to my attention that I failed to mention that many early Godzilla movies had alternate main title themes for the U.S. release. Some movies even had their whole soundtrack stripped out and replaced with stock music. "Godzilla's Revenge" did have an alternate U.S. title track.
From Rory Penland: ". The title track for "Godzilla's Revenge" is listed at Wikipedia to be a track called "Crime Fiction" by jazz artist Ervin Jereb".
From Sam Scali: "The U.S. theme for GODZILLA'S REVENGE was credited on screen as "March of the Monsters" on "Crown Records", but it's correct title is that of the jazz piece that Penland mentioned.".

This movie is easily one of, if not the, worst film in the series. The movies now are being shot on minuscule budgets and are squarely aimed at young children. Both the music and film suffer from budget cuts. Here the music is done by Kunio Miyauchi. Surprisingly, the music isn't too bad and has an action oriented feel to it. The first two tracks, "Monster March I" and "Monster March II", are sung by Lily Sasaki although in the movie it looks like it's sung by the annoying little boy Ichiro. He's the one who has to deal with bullies and meets up with Minya on Monster Island in his dreams. He and Minya share a common bond when it comes to being bullied. This also gives Toho the opportunity to use tons of stock footage for a big chunk of this movie.
The main themes on this CD get repeated fairly often and most tracks run under 1 minute in length. Tracks 31 through 34 are karaoke versions of the first two tracks. Overall the CD isn't bad to listen to considering how bad the film was and that the scoring wasn't done by a major person like Akira Ifukube or Masaru Satoh.

NOTE: Minya is sometimes also known as Minilla or Minira.
