Jack & Gibbs is a musical theme composed by Hans Zimmer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. It appeared as a track on the film's complete soundtrack.

Track Description

Jack & Gibbs Sample

The opening bars of "Jack & Gibbs".

The track features many of Jack's themes from previous film, starting out with a brief mention of "The Medallion Calls", and moving through the pirate theme, themes from "Jack Sparrow" (including the action cue), a lighter version of the ending theme from "Underwater March", Beckett's old leitmotif from the previous two films, and the first three notes of the new theme from "On Stranger Tides". The track end with a harsh drum beat, leading into "All Part Of The Plan?".

The track plays as Jack Sparrow and Joshamee Gibbs leave the Old Bailey courthouse in a prison carriage.


  • This track is also know as "Paddy Wagon" from the alternative track listing.
  • This track has a reprise near the end of the score, entitled "Jack & Gibbs (A Pirate's Life For Me)", which is structured similarly and includes many of the same motifs.
