"Let Me Explain Everything" is a cutscene theme from Kirby's Return to Dream Land that plays during the eponymous cutscene. It was composed by Hirokazu Ando.[1]

Composition[edit]

Magolor explains everything.

As implied by its role, "Let Me Explain Everything" has a diverse structure and is made up of different motifs. It starts with a slowed down iteration of "The Adventure Begins" in C major played by the xylophone, together with a peaceful piano backing. Following a descending harp glissando and Magolor's appearance, a particular minor version of "Four Adventurers: Cookie Country" plays in the strings, immediately succeeded by a bassoon's minor "Magolor, the Far-Flung Traveler". This repeats louder with different instruments. A tense chromatic and gradually slowing build-up continues during Magolor's transformation. Once he transforms into his new form, "Limitless Power" starts playing. Its first two sections play fully during his explanations, and the third section fades out when he teleports away. A suspense follows, and then a timpani solo representing Landia's footsteps. This accelerates, and the theme from "Halcandra: A New Enemy" plays in G major. It modulates to A major as the cutscene takes a decisive turn, and "Kirby's Triumphant Return" concludes the cutscene, leading into the story's final stretch.

Game appearances[edit]

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

In Kirby's Return to Dream Land and its remake, "Let Me Explain Everything" plays during the cutscene with the same name. A major version of it also makes up a large portion of "Return to Dream Land".

In Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe, a C major arrangement is used as the title theme for the Sub-Game Magolor's Tome Trackers. It is titled "Magolor's Tome Trackers - Title" and is composed by Yuki Shimooka[1]. If all main missions for Magolor's Tome Trackers are completed, the secret version of the song can be selected to play, which changes it to a chiptune-styled arrangement also composed by Yuki Shimooka.

Other appearances[edit]

Though not featured on the album proper, an arrangement of "Let Me Explain Everything" very similar to the original is featured as part of the song ボーナストラック:サイゴノタタカイ (Bonus Track: Last Battle) on the Kirby Wii Music Selection CD, making up a medley alongside "Fly, Kirby!", "Welcome Your New Overlord", and "C-R-O-W-N-E-D". This version of the theme is in a higher key and skips the "The Adventure Begins" intro, and then transitions into "Fly, Kirby!" where the original song enters its "Limitless Power" segment.

Trivia[edit]

  • "Dangerous Dinner" and "Let Me Explain Everything" are the only music tracks from Kirby's Return to Dream Land to not be remastered in Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe.
