"He's a Pirate" is a 2003 track composed by Klaus Badelt and Hans Zimmer for the 2003 Disney film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. It is featured on the soundtrack album of the film and is used at the beginning of the credits for the film.

The track has been subject to a number of remix versions collected in an EP titled Pirates Remixed and separate singles released notably by Tiësto in 2006 and by Rebel in 2014. Renditions of the track were also used for the credits of the four Pirates sequels.

The track, cut and altered for time, has been used as theme music by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for pre-game and time-out sequences at home games at Raymond James Stadium.

Production[edit]

Hans Zimmer was initially asked to score the film, but he gave the assignment to his colleague Klaus Badelt since he was working on another project at that time. However, he ended up writing most of the themes, including "He's A Pirate".[1]
