Hi Angela. I did look at your companion guide - after I had seen the film but before I listened to the CD. The titles often bear little comparison to the section of film from which the music is taken, although the segments do fit together reasonably well. I do love the theme which features first and foremost when we first see Jack standing proudly on top of his "ship" . That does sound reasonably "pirate like" to me but with a lovely lively melody. Also the climactic segment in the third minute of "One Last Shot" when Will and Elizabeth kiss and embrace sounds absolutely gorgeous on CD!! Loud and deep !!
