Hoist the Colours

"Hoist the Colours" from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is performed in the original key of G minor. Composed by Hans Zimmer, it serves as a thematic motif throughout the series, symbolizing the call to action for pirates to unite under the Black Pearl's flag. The song is sung by a choir of condemned souls in the film "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" (2007), led by the character Gibbs. Its haunting melody and lyrics evoke a sense of defiance and camaraderie among the pirate brethren. Notably, the song's title and lyrics reference historical pirate lore, adding authenticity to the film's portrayal of pirate culture.
