    Not sure, but it sounds like something from a movie soundtrack. Kind of a John Barry flavor to it.

    Interesting for them to say that. Yesterday, I was watching the Yankeeography for Mickey Mantle (produced about 2 years ago) and the song in this commercial was definitely in the Yankeeography.

    It could have just come from a music library CD that is sold "royalty free" to be used in various forms of media by anyone. So, it's possible that the song "created just for them" is their way of saying it only exists in 30 second form and isn't by any marketed band.

    Sorry for bumping this thread here... but I also love this music cue... it really does sound right from a film trailer.... why can't they tell us the composer? I highly doubt it was from a royalty free recording.... the quality of the composing and the expense of the full orchestration suggests this was done by a talented film composer, perhaps well-known, who was commissioned specifically for the job as the email reply suggests.

    There is a cue in the 2003 film version of Peter Pan, soundtrack by James Newton Howard, in the track titled "Please Don't Die" around the 28 second mark, that sounds remarkably similar to the Capt Morgan ad's theme... same chord progression and very similar orchestration. Remarkably similar. Not as good but pretty close. Check it out.
