Track Description

Water Drop Sample

The theme from "On Stranger Tides" as it is heard for the second time in "Water Drop".

The track consists of two full statements of the theme from "On Stranger Tides", followed by a short coda. The first statement is delicate amnd mysterious, accompanied by an arpeggio pattern and tribal wind instruments. The second statement is accompanied by a driving bassline and male choir and is althogether more powerful. The track ends with Blackbeard's six note figure.

The track plays as Jack Sparrow, Blackbeard and his crew are searching for the entrance to the Fountain of Youth.


  • The ostinato rhythm heard at the beginning of the second section is the same as the opening to "He's a Pirate".
