Pirates, adventures, and conquering the world – sounds like every boy’s dream!
Few musical pieces convey this sentiment better than the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack.
Check out our favorites below.
Our three favorite renditions are quite different from eachother. However, if you like the original movie score and the iconic melody from “He’s a pirate” composed by Klaus Badelt and Hans Zimmer, then you’ll for sure enjoy the arrangements we’ve picked.
Jarrod Radnich – Pirates of the Caribbean [Virtuosic Piano Solo – Movement 3]
Without a doubt, Jarrod Radnich is one of the most entertaining pianists to watch. How about 38 million views for this video? That says it all. It is the first video he uploaded on his channel and it has been extremely popular amongst listeners and pianists alike.
So much so that he organized a worldwide “Pirates of the Caribbean” competition back in August 2013. The competition was divided into three age groups; Group 1 (under 13 years of age), Group 2 (age 13 up to 18), Group 3 (age 18 and over).
Definitely a cool project!

Peter Bence – Pirates of the Caribbean
This version by Peter Bence is absolutely amazing too. No matter which of his videos you watch, you really have to acknowledge his amazing piano skills.
His interpretation seems quite energetic and is therefore somewhat different than, for example, the arrangement by Jarrod Radnich. But that’s what we love – unique and personal interpretations of wonderful music!

Patrik Pietschmann – He’s a Pirate
Patrik Pietschmann is the last on our list.
His arrangement of “He’s a Pirate” may not be as virtuosic, but nonetheless the melodies come through beautifully, making this version a delight to listen to as well.

Well, Pirates of the Caribbean – a wonderful piece of music, iconic, timeless, and a lot of fun to play!
