|||||Pirates of the Caribbean Soundtrack - Track 4 - Will and Elizabeth||]|
I wish I hadn't had to work this weekend, but since I did, I decided I deserved to spend a little money on myself. So now, I'm sitting here with a copy of the POTC soundtrack in my hot little hands. It's been a long time since I just sat back and listened to a movie score without doing something else at the same time, like typing a paper, or surfing the net. I love movie soundtracks. They always bring to mind favorite scenes from the movies, and in some ways, it's almost like seeing it again.
The POTC soundtrack is pretty good. It's only 44 minutes long...a bit shorter than most of my instrumental soundtracks, but god, do I love the main theme! Every time I hear it, I can see in my mind the fight at the end in the cave full of treasure, and I remember how hot Orlando Bloom looks while he's fighting with bladed weapons *G* Overall, the soundtrack isn't anywhere near as good as the LOTR soundtrack and its multitude of complex and beautiful themes for each culture, but it's a good, rousing score that gets my blood pumping to see more swashbucking pirates...and that's good enough for me!
