"On a Fun Drive with You" is a Race theme from Kirby's Dream Buffet unlocked at the start of the game. It was composed by Shogo Sakai.[1]

Composition[edit]

A fun drive for pink Kirby's competition.

"On a Fun Drive with You" is a lively theme in G major and 4/4. Immediately, the music starts with an exciting brass buildup that explodes into a quieter melody with a jazzy feel, initially headed by an organ. The melody periodically shifts from G major to an E minor harmony before swapping back, adding sweetness and diversity to the music. Within the melody's second repetition, a brass ornament can be heard, specifically a mordent that is very characteristic of Shogo Sakai's style. Quickly, the main melody is overtaken by a violin, while the piano in the background provides more of a supporting role. The theme's beginning then plays again (now without the buildup), this time with the brass mordent occurring earlier. The violin segment shines once again, with a slight alteration on the mordent from before, and a new addition in the form of a rattling tambourine. Suddenly, the theme switches key to C major during a short interlude, and a violin-focused second section with more piano backing takes place. Halfway through said section, brass accompaniment joins, and the music slowly switches back to its initial G major key through dominant. A saxophone then becomes the focal point of the track, playing a suave and smooth melody, backed by the previous section's accompanying instruments. Suddenly, a wind-like sound effect plays, and the track becomes quiet, only for the brass buildup from the beginning to make its return. The track then loops.
