OTHER NOTES
Inspired by his role in "Pirates of the Carribean", Johnny Depp worked with Gore Verbinski to put together this collection of Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys.  The album was produced by Hal Willner who previously worked with Bono on the Million Dollar Hotel Soundtrack.

From the liner notes, Bono's song is "A haunting ballad of the 19th century whaling ships.  As well as being musical, sailors often displayed great poetic ability, as in the lyrics of this powerful song."

Also appearing on the album are frequent U2 collaborators, Andrea Corr and Gavin Friday.  Gavin appears with two other former members of the Virgin Prunes, Guggi and Dave-Id as "Three Pruned Men" as well as solo.
