"Bubbly Clouds"[1] is the theme for the eponymous stage from Kirby's Dream Land. It was composed by Jun Ishikawa, and has made frequent reappearances throughout the series ever since.


Floating through Bubbly Clouds.

Bubbly Clouds is a theme in 3/4 time in the key of C (the original version). The intro of this theme is only about seven seconds long, and it starts with the first portion if the song, which sounds rather calm. The second portion is calm as well, with a descending part as well. After this short portion, the song loops with a transition similar to the one at the very beginning of the theme.

This theme first appears in Kirby's Dream Land, playing in the level of the same name.
