Description of Disc Four[edit]

The contents of the first three discs are identical to the previously released soundtrack albums. As hinted by Hans Zimmer in a podcast interview with SoundtrackNet,[2] the fourth disc comes with several suites of music that contain Zimmer's original ideas for the second sequel's new themes:

  • "Pirates, Day One 4:56am" is a shortened and edited version of the first demo Hans Zimmer wrote for The Curse of the Black Pearl.
  • "Marry Me" is a combination of the "Love Theme" and its variations that was heard on the already released soundtrack to At World's End. A notable addition here is the inclusion of the music that's played during Jack and Elizabeth's parachute escape near the end of the film when Will dies but later comes back, as well as a slightly extended version of "Up Is Down".
  • "The Heart Of Davy Jones" contains string variations on the theme heard on Dead Man's Chest soundtrack. No Organs were used in this cue and the Music Box only makes a cameo appearance towards the end of the cue.
  • "Lord Cutler Beckett" contains many different variations on Beckett's theme as heard in Dead Man's Chest and At World's End. Although some thematic ideas were used later on for the climatic battle scene of the second sequel, most of the ideas in this cue remained unused.
  • "Jack's Theme Bare Bones Demo" is a solo Piano demo of what would become Jack Sparrow's theme suite in Dead Man's Chest.
  • "Hoist The Colours Suite" is a slightly altered version of a same theme that appears in the end credits to At World's End.
  • "The Pirate Lord of Singapore" is an extended version of "Singapore" that was released on At World's End. The lengthy cue builds the ideas of "Singapore" even further, however some of these ideas too were not used in the score for the final film. A very full track, utilizing traditional Asian instruments like the Gamelan and Er-Hu at the end of the track. Halfway through, a cello, bass and gamelan are heard in a traditional gritty Zimmer style motif. The cello and gamelan continue throughout the track doubling each other.
  • "Just Good Business" is supposedly the original idea for the first half of the climatic battle scene, utilizing a strong electronic beat in the background. The motif from "Lord Cutler Beckett" provides the base for this track.

The remix music were all previously released on Pirates Remixed and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End Remixes. It should be noted however that these tracks are shortened edits of the original remixes contained on aforementioned releases.
