|This article is about a soundtrack theme composed by Hans Zimmer. You may be looking for the individual Davy Jones.|
The theme starts out with a music box solo which is then supported by strings, and finally organ and the brass. It changes octaves once, and keys twice. The theme finally ends with another music box solo. A segment of the music box solo is repeated in the track "Wheel of Fortune", and is played at a slower pace during "Tia Dalma". The organ solo is played as phenomenal music by Davy Jones onboard the Flying Dutchman, and the music box plays during Will Turner's attempt to steal the key to the Dead Man's Chest.
This theme uses the same principle as "El resa del conti" from Ennio Morricone's soundtrack to For a Few Dollars More; the theme begins with the chime of a locket, builds into a strong organ section before ending with the locket. A scene at the end of the film also appears to have been the inspiration for the scene between Davy Jones and Tia Dalma in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, where Jones' locket continues playing the song after Dalma's ends. In Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, after Will and Elizabeth return to sleep, Jones' barnacles appear on the floor, to which the locker theme can be heard briefly.
