Walk Like an Egyptian
"Walk Like an Egyptian" is a 1986 single by American pop rock band The Bangles from their album Different Light. It is used as the ending theme for the first half of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders.
The ending animation begins with Star Platinum clapping its hands before reopening them. A clock appears, wrapped in green flames and presumably the vines of Hermit Purple. The clock's hands swiftly tick away before morphing into an arrow that rapidly moves along a sandy background. It then moves on to a slideshow of the current Joestar group (Jotaro, Kakyoin, Avdol, Joseph and Polnareff in that order) accompanied by their Stands and sporting the Tarot cards that each individual Stand is named after.
There are also certain transitions, such as Avdol's image briefly changing to that of an ankh on a rapidly circling background which morphs into the vines of Hermit Purple, and the subsequent shot of Joseph as well. The final shot of the credits sequence is of a multi-colored eye, which contains an image of Cairo, Egypt, as well as the silhouettes of the Joestar group journeying toward it. The ending fades out as the eye slowly closes.
All the old paintings on the tombs,
All the bazaar men by the Nile,
Foreign types with their hookah pipes say
The blond waitresses take their trays
All the school kids so sick of books,
All the kids in the marketplace say
Slide your feet up the street, bend your back
If you want to find all the cops
All the Japanese with their yen
All the cops in the donut shop say

- The ending transition shows Star Platinum's hands opening up to a clock, possibly foreshadowing its time-stop ability.
- The clock entangled in purple vines likely references DIO's Stand The World and Jonathan's unknown Stand.
- Afterwards, a hand from the clock turns into an arrow snaking across a sandy-colored background. The head of the arrow is shaped exactly like that of the Stand Arrow.
- There is an animation error in the ending for episodes 3 and 4 where Muhammad Avdol is shown having two right hands. This mistake is fixed in episode 5.
