Bumper Crop Bump (theme)
"Bumper Crop Bump" is an energetic and somewhat comical theme in C minor and 4/4. The melody comes in on an off-beat with an immediate A natural accidental characteristic of G minor, soon joined by a frantic bassline. This melody is quite similar to the second phrase of "Neo Star". However, rather than slowly rising like the latter, it features a bright descending arpeggio closer to the first phrase of "Neo Star", followed by a resolution based on the opening intonations. This repeated by two brass parts, one providing harmonic support. The second section features a bombastic syncopated chord progression with a dissonant G-flat, ending similarly to the first section the first time while ending in a rising progression and repeated chords the second.
The third section shares intonational similarities with the first, but is higher-pitched and more lyrical in character, alternating between sweeter major harmonies and sharper minor chords. Its first iteration ends with a dominant trill, while the second has the resolution from the first section. A fourth and final section borrows the second section's progression and rapidly modulates upwards before ending up with a bombastic dominant again, after which the track loops.
