Pirates of the Caribbean Theme Song

Pirates of the Caribbean


Pirates of the Caribbean is a Walt Disney film franchise that currently comprises four films with a fifth in the works. The first film, The Curse of the Black Pearl, tells the tale of a humble blacksmith, Will Turner (played by Orlando Bloom), who has ambitions to marry the governor’s daughter, Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), who saved him from a shipwreck eight years before. However, she also found a golden medallion which draws the immortal pirates of the Black Pearl to Port Royal, who capture Elizabeth. Will has to break captured pirate Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) out of prison to save Elizabeth. They commandeer a British frigate, HMS Interceptor and recruit a crew to pursue the Pearl.

The film was a smash hit (despite being predicted to flop) and spawned two back-to-back sequels: Dead Man’s Chest and At World’s End. In 2011, a fourth film, On Stranger Tides, was released, and a fifth, Dead Men Tell No Tales, is slated to begin production in October 2014 for release in 2016. The film was won nominated for four Oscars and won a host of other awards and is fondly remembered as a film that revitalized the previously stale pirate genre.


About The Pirates of the Caribbean Movie Theme Song

THe music for Curse of the Black Pearl came about in a hurry, due to a rush to finish production. Alan Silvestri was originally hired to copmose the score, but he left the project due to creative differences. Hans Zimmer was then brought in, but he was also working on The Last Samurai and had promised not to ake on any more work during that time. He referred the directors to Klaus Badelt, who composed much of the score with assistance from Zimmer, who is credited equally with Badelt. The main theme is a stirring piece, highly reminiscent of Zimmer’s other work, most notably Crimson Tide, which we’re featuring tomorrow. The theme itself opens as a frenetic march, before segueing into a gentler melody until it rises into a final crescendo. The music is amongst the most memorable elements of the films and is a large part of their success.
