Track DescriptionEdit

The track begins with a light cello jig before descending into a plodding, suspenseful theme (00:28) that incorporates woodwinds later used to denote the Black Pearl and its cursed crew. The theme reaches a suspenseful climax (approx 01:30) before leading into the film's love theme that continues until the end of the track, segueing directly in to "The Medallion Calls".

The cello jig theme is reprised in part in Walk The Plank and Guilty Of Being Innocent Of Being Jack Sparrow and forms the basis of Jack's Dead Man's Chest theme.

In The FilmEdit

The track accompanies Elizabeth Swann's dream concerning the crossing to Port Royal, and her "present-day" introductory scene.
