In the beginning of Pirates III :what is the significance of the song Hoist the Colors?

Answer:

this movie was based on to mythical and magical so basically the pirates kno the song has been sung just because of there senses or rumors also the song was sung to represent who the pirates are and what they stand for...also if you realize when the Bretheran Court comes together and are fighting davy jones will turner says hoist your colors meaning everybody bring up your flags and show who we and are purpose of what we are doing. ALso colpso is powerful women who has a sixth sense who probably alerted the pirates about the song and that means once its been heard its supposedly the end of all pirates
In my humble opinion, something extraordinary must be initiated in order for any sort of talisman to be activated. In PIII, the mass hangings with the loss of many lives, some most likely innocent, prompted a little boy to begin singing Hoist the Colors which inspired the others in line watching and waiting their turn at the gallows to sing, instead of, say, begging for their lives. A soldier ran over to Lord Cutler Beckett and made a querulous report: They're singing. Obviously Lord Cutler Beckett was waiting around the gallows area for just this report as he responded: Finally (or some such thing). Later in the movie, way over in Singapore, Captain Balboa stated The song has been sung. This seems to have activated all the pirate lord's pieces of eight like a tuning fork, similar to all those pieces of Cortez's gold in the first movie. So it took a serious event to cause 'the song to be sung' to activate those pieces of eight calling all the disparate pirate lords to convene at shipwreck island (or some such place).
I don't know! I asked the same question but I didn't get a great answer ..... hope you have better luck. I know that it refers to Calypso being bound in human form by Davy Jones and the Pirates Lords, giving control of the seas to pirates rather than to Calypso, and that it calls the Bretheren Court to convene, but I don't know how. I guess it's supposed to be some magical way of calling them together, like the gold medallions in the first movie calling to Barbossa and his crew - it's like the pirates have a kind of sixth sense than enables them to hear it. A bit confusing, but I still loved the movie though ;O) Yo ho yo ho, a pirate's life for me!
When the the song has been sung it is the end of the pirates.
sorry. i havent seen it yet
