Spanish Ignore Barbossa Sample 2

The On Stranger Tides theme as heard in the track.

The track features an action cue of the "Spanish theme", which is heard twice in its entirety. This is followed by the motif adapted as Barbossa's theme from At World's End. There is then a driven rendition of the theme heard in "On Stranger Tides", and finished by a three note figure from Lord Cutler Beckett's theme, adapted from Dead Man's Chest, as a theme for the British.

The track plays as the Hector Barbossa and his crew prepare for battle, as the Spanish simply passed by them, and realizing that they had fallen behind in the race for the Fountain of Youth.


  • This track marks the second of three appearances of the Spanish theme. It was heard previously in "On Stranger Tides" and is featured again in "Battle Montage".
  • The track makes use of ideas from all three sequels.
