Which came first - Pirates of the Caribbean, or Gladiator?
This isn't really a question, but an FYI. I have a musical ear and loved the James Bond article. It got me thinking about how often there is a stepwise progression regarding music and the final product.

Case in point: Go to 5:37 - a little past the middle. Sounds familiar?
Now this at 2:21...
And last, the classic up tempo modded version..
