"The Medallion Calls" is a musical theme credited to Klaus Badelt (with Hans Zimmer's assistance) for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. It appears as track two on the film's soundtrack, at 1:52 in length.

The track begins as a segue from "Fog Bound", continuing the film's love theme. This gives way to Jack Sparrow's introductory theme (00:16), which is repeated throughout the film series as the character's leitmotif. It dips into a mournful tune (00:57) before rising heroically (01:06) and ending the track with a waltzing melody.

Despite the name, this track accompanies Jack Sparrow's arrival at Port Royal. His theme again used for his introduction in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and his appearance on the mast of the Black Pearl in the first act of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. Here, it has the backing of a choir, and appears at the end of "Singapore" on the film's soundtrack.
