I'm going to be running Skull & Shackles (http://paizo.com/products/btpy8rcc?Pathfinder-Adventure-Path-55-The-Wormwood-Mutiny) at some point in the near future, and I'm looking for some theme music.

Anything pirate-y or sea-faring would be awesome, preferably instrumental but lyrics are ok too.

Hehe, we're two sessions into that campaign at the moment. It's definitely different, but it's fun so far. :)

Pirates of the Carribean Soundtracks?

Flogging Molly would do well for background music during a fight. I mean, c'mon, just listen to something like Salty Dog.

Pirates of Penzance. It's a whole comic operetta devoted to pirates.

Anything and everything by Alestorm is basically what you're looking for. I offer up Keelhauled (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ta-Z_psXODw) as an example. Their entire schtick is pirate metal.

The band Abney Park has some great pirate music: Airship Pirate (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPH1OoTobtk), Aether Shanty (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05rR7nozsYg), Under the Radar (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KjRGYE6brQY&feature=BFa&list=PL0BC0833164FB6B45), and Wrath of Fate (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhEeiV3lzJo&feature=BFa&list=PL0BC0833164FB6B45) are all good places to start. If you like their stuff, get more! They're awesome.

The band Voltaire has some options, too, including "The Beast of Pirate's Bay." (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcgvLiNYCcA)

The Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack is an easy and awesome answer.

OC ReMix has some interesting variations (http://ocremix.org/quicksearch/game/?qs_query=monkey+island) on the Monkey Island soundtrack.

All of those should get you on your way!

I strongly suggest Alestorm (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXoZsgNHquM).

Its Scottish (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFYEASepPAc&feature=BFa&list=ALHTd1VmZQRNp5C_FQVBNTAbmijFQYoIBl) pirate (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6ehVX2LXBQ&feature=related) metal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GjaXszYMUo&feature=relmfu). Which is freaking awesome.

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQxIr0ZL_Gw)
We're beggars and blighters, ne'er-do-well cads,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
Aye, but we're loved by our mommies and dads,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
