Rodrigo y Gabriela-Pirates of the Caribbean End Credits

My biggest movie guilty pleasure is probably Pirates of the Caribbean. I'll admit to seeing all four in theaters, including two weeks ago taking my girlfriend to see a somewhat bored Johnny Depp and a visibly pregnant Penelope Cruz battle their way through another story which invariably had no true end and will just lead to yet another sequel. The franchise will soon have more films than some TV seasons have episodes. But for some reason I can't get enough of them, and will no doubt shell out another 10€ to see the future quintuple reincarnation.

One of my non-guilty musical pleasures is Rodrigo and Gabriela. Despite a recent lack of new material, their old stuff never gets old. Whenever I listen to their Live in Japan album, I still get goosebumps every time I hear Rodrigo scream "Are You F*CKING READY" before they launch into Tamacun, one of my all-time personal favorites. Combined with the memory of getting so funky at their concert in LA that both of them came over to show some love to Moodawg and myself, the duo will forever hold a special place in my musical heart. So it was a big surprise to me that, while watching the credits after the last flick, I heard the unmistakable picking of R&G intertwined with the best part of the series: the theme song. While blasphemously short, the reworking of eternally fire theme song with just a little flavor from the duo was enough to make spending my hard earned euros well worth it. The two collaborated with Hans Zimmer on a few tracks off of the new soundtrack, and while it's definitely far from their best work, it's enough to keep me going.
