Ahoy, mateys! Join us as we set sail for the pirate-inspired, soundtrack waters we love! Cap’n Dodson and shipmates Wend and Xander discuss Brian Tyler’s video game soundtrack for Assassin’s Creed Black Flag and the first four Pirates of the Caribbean film scores by film composer Hans Zimmer and Klaus Badelt. To finish, our Captain guides us through the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Adventureland, Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, featuring the song “Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me)”, the most iconic piece of pirate music in pop culture today, written by George Bruns and X Atencio, and based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s sea shanty “Dead Man’s Chest” from Treasure Island.
They also briefly touch on Bear McCreary’s Black Sails music, and present their honourable mentions to the crew, including Cutthroat Island by John Debney, the masterclass that is Treasure Planet by James Newton Howard, Harry Gregson-Williams’ Sinbad Legend of the Seven Seas, Muppet Treasure Island by Hans Zimmer, The Goonies by Dave Grusin and The Sea Hawk by Erich Wolfgang Korngold for good measure.
Enjoy the show ye scallywags or you’ll walk the plank! Arrr!
