"Iceberg: Stage Select"[conjectural title] is the stage select theme for Iceberg from Kirby's Dream Land 3. It was composed by Jun Ishikawa.

Composition[edit]

The castle is watching over the icy land.

"Iceberg: Stage Select" is a relatively short and ominous track. It features a repetitive brass melody consisting of chromatically descending phrases on offbeats from different pitches. As a counterpoint, the bassline slowly raises above a C, likewise chromatically.
