Soundtrack Q & A
Q: Which song is the one that the music box plays? (from Farah Simon in Brunei)
A: The music box theme is prominent in Track 3, "Davy Jones." (thanks to katycat, usaadd more info

Q: Is there anyway to get the music that plays over the end credits? I've checked and I don't think it's included on this soundtrack CD. (from Rox in Idaho)
A: You are right, the end credits music is sorely missing from this CD. You can't get it unless it is included on a second CD of music from the film. But that's probably not in the works. (thanks to OSTfan, Burlingameadd more info
A: The end credit music is by Klaus Badelt and is called "He's a Pirate" (thanks to Jerry, Hollandadd more info
A: This can be found on the original POTC soundtrack, the first one. Total time for the track is 1:30. (thanks to deadmentellnotales85, Arizonaadd more info

Q: What is the song that Davy Jones plays on the organ? Is it possible to get the organ sheet music for it? (from April in Elko, Nevada, USA)
A: Davy Jones playing the organ can be heard half way through track 3 on the soundtrack. I also wanted the organ sheet music and couldn't find it, however if you go on to advanced search artist "Hans Zimmer" and under media "Digital Sheet Music" search and then go down and you will see "Davy Jones." It is for the piano, but it sounds 100 times better on the organ and it is very simple to exchange part of the bottom line for the pedals even without rewriting it. It follows the soundtrack exactly so you can see when the organ should come in on page 2. There is also the option of "Davy Jones Plays the Organ" but it is much shorter and the only difference to the rest of it is the introduction so I really wouldn't recommend it. (thanks to zac, Englandadd more info
A: The song was composed by Isidor Vorovchievici around 1850, both the song and the Romanian and Ukrainean lyrics. The Romanian name of the song is "Sa-mi canti cobzar batran ceva." Translated would be: "You old fiddler, just play me something." The song was played by several artists over the years, but none of them dared to take credit for it until now, from respect for the talented Ukrainean composer (yes, he was Ukrainean, and he was a music teacher in Bucharest at that time).

But I guess respect is no longer what it used to be...

Here is the song played by a romanian actor, he's name is Stefan Iordache (not that I believe there are many people knowing him out there, just for the records). (thanks to viccraft, Bucharest, Romaniaadd more info

Q: What's the name of the music that plays over the end credits? (from Chan in Brazil)
A: It's not on the soundtrack CD, but it has the same theme as "He's a Pirate" from the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie. I would say it is a fully orchestral version of that song with little variation. (thanks to Panzerfaust, Santiago, Chileadd more info
A: The End Credits music is a suite that contains the following:

- DMC's version of "He's A Pirate" - not included on the CD
- Edit version of "Jack Sparrow" - supplied on CD
- Edit version of "The Kraken" - supplied on CD
- Film version of "Davy Jones" - Similar but not the same as the CD version

Q: Who sang "A pirate's life's for me" in the previews? Sounded like a little girl, quite creepy.  (from Chul in Brunei)
A: The young Elizabeth Swann from the first movie. (thanks to kester, londonadd more info

Q: What is the song playing when Jack Sparrow comes back to the Black Pearl to save everyone from the Kraken and Elizabeth looks up and sees Jack and he takes the gun and shoots the barrel of gun powder? (from LHM in Florida)
A: It is a variation on Jack Sparrow's theme, and it is contained in the track "Hello Beastie" #11 on the soundtrack. But "Hello Beastie" is the music that plays over that entire encounter with the Kraken at the end of the movie up until the point where the Kraken eats Jack. (thanks to jon, california, USAadd more info
A: That music is not on the soundtrack, but it is a variation of "He's A Pirate." (thanks to Andrew, Ohio, USAadd more info

Q: Where can I get the little girl vocal version of "A Pirate's Life For Me"? (from twiggy in my)
A: It is not on any of the soundtracks, sorry. It is, however, on the Curse of the Black Pearl DVD, very near the beginning. (thanks to Andrew, Ohio, USAadd more info

Q: What is the music playing right after the Kraken has swallowed Jack and is pulling down the rest of the ship? It's another organ piece, but it's not "Davy Jone's Theme" or "Hello Beastie."

Q: Where can I get the score for "The Kraken" (not just the piano solo)?
...from steph in gulfport (answer steph's question)

Q: What is the music playing in the background when Jack is fighting? It's more or less like the theme music of the film.
...from Srinath in India (answer Srinath's question)

Q: Does any of the music from Pirates of the Caribbean have a heart beat in it? If so, which track? Thank you. (from Mikii in NSW)
