The song is a big part of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction just as the John Williams' scores are integral to the Star Wars and Indiana Jones films. Had Star Tours or Indiana Jones Adventure not included that music, there would have been just as much criticism.Originally Posted by Athlonacon
By the way, I always thought Disney should have paid Harrison Ford's price to include his performance in the Disneyland attraction for the same reasons.
I did like the way that the filmmakers used "Yo Ho" in "The Curse of the Black Pearl", and I am sure that they want to build-up to something bigger in the later films since Capt. Jack Sparrow says something about wanting to teach the song to his entire crew. But, I just feel that, as the sequels advance the saga, the melody, itself, needs to be woven into the score more so that the film remains faithful to the attraction.
