"Candy Mountain"[Japanese title] is a theme from Kirby Super Star. It was composed by Jun Ishikawa.[1]

Composition[edit]

At the cliffs of Candy Mountain.

"Candy Mountain" is a very fast upbeat song. Its intro starts in the key of E-flat major, until it quickly goes into the "first verse" of the song (it then goes into C major). After the said first verse, it introduces the "chorus" of the song. After repeating the verse, it repeats the chorus again, but it goes into the chorus a bit longer, including a short part in E-flat major. After that, it repeats the verse two times again with a different sounding lead instrument each time. It then does the chorus after each verse part (at the respective times), and the theme loops afterwards.
