This article is about the theme from Kirby's Adventure. For the theme from Kirby Super Star that is often unofficially referred to by the same name, see "Sea Stage".

"Grape Garden"[1][2] is a theme composed by Hirokazu Ando for Kirby's Adventure.

Composition[edit]

Grape Garden is a generally low-energy track which plays in a 3/4 time signature. Its tempo, time signature, and composition are similar to that of the Rainbow Resort theme.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Adventure / Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land[edit]

The theme is used mostly in the level of the same name, although it can be heard in some stages of other levels.

Kirby: Canvas Curse[edit]

An arrangement of the theme plays in Contrast Cave. It is slightly faster than the original, and is in a 4/4 time signature, instead of the original's 3/4.

When the "Old School" sound mode is selected, the Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land arrangement plays in Tiny Town and Paletto Polis.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land / Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe[edit]

A gentle piano-focused arrangement of the theme, with some small additions and changes to the melody, plays in various stages of Nutty Noon and in the rest area of The Arena. It is named "Dreaming of Clouds" and it is arranged by the original composer, Hirokazu Ando.[3] This arrangement includes at the end of it a melody similar both to the one of "Kirby's Triumphant Return" and the one of "Rainbow Resort"; it is unknown if it is meant to reference either of them.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe[edit]

The "Dreaming of Clouds" arrangement from Kirby's Return to Dream Land is reused in Old Odyssey - Stage 7 EX. It can be found as track 73 in the game's Jukebox.

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

A simple arrangement of the theme modeled after the version from ほぼ日の健康手帳 (Hobo Ka no Kenkō Techō) plays in the staff credits in the Theater. It is named "Pocket Diary" in the Kirby: Planet Robobot Original Soundtrack and is arranged once again by the original composer, Hirokazu Ando. It can be found as track 159 in the game's Jukebox.

Kirby's Dream Buffet[edit]

The original version from Kirby's Adventure, named Kirby's Adventure: Memorial Song 2 in-game, is unlocked for potential use in races upon reaching Gourmet Rank 113.

Other appearances[edit]

The original version of the track was included in the Kirby's Adventure soundtrack and in the Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition Compilation Soundtrack.

The "Dreaming of Clouds" arrangement is featured on Kirby Wii Music Selection. It also appears as part of an orchestral medley in the track ボーナストラック:空の夢と、虹の泉で (Bonus Track: Dreaming of Skies at the Fountain of Rainbows).

The theme was performed live in the Kirby 25th Anniversary Orchestra Concert as part of the Kirby's Adventure Medley. The same medley was later rearranged for Track 3: Sleeping Like a Baby of the Kirby Memorial Arrangements album.

A Japanese only DSiWare game, ほぼ日の健康手帳 (Hobo Ka no Kenkō Techō, roughly meaning Roughly Daily Health Pocket Diary), has a unique arrangement of the theme that plays in the game's column screen.
