"A Stroll on the Ocean Floor" is a stage theme from Kirby's Return to Dream Land. This theme was composed by Jun Ishikawa.

Composition[edit]

Finding ruins near the ocean floor.

"A Stroll on the Ocean Floor" is a cheery theme in swung 4/4 rhythm with a bouncy bass line and frequent use of triplets in the melody. This theme appears to be primarily in the key of C, and has instruments such as synths (as the lead instrument and in the background), drumbeats, and a piano-sounding instrument. The theme begins with its intro, which features the piano sounding instrument playing, after which a drumbeat. The theme then starts the first portion of its happy-sounding melody with the synth. It does this melody another time, but with a different ending that goes up three notes form C. After this, a solo synth plays its part,then it goes into the second half, which brings back the other synth again. This (and the latter half of the first portion) portion also has a lower pitched synth in the background. The theme plays its melody with high notes. After this merry portion finishes, the theme then loops.
