Pink Ball Activate!
"Pink Ball Activate!" is an energetic 2/4 theme in the Dorian D minor, performed primarily with electronic instruments. It has an introductory segment teetering between C and B. The melody then comes in performed by an electric guitar, each phrase ranging within a fourth. The first phrase is heard again a whole tone lower. The second phrase consists of a descending passage and an ascending sixth, followed by harmonized beat. The aforementioned repeats, leading up to the middle section in E minor. The first phrase now ranges within a fifth. It plays thrice, and the melody revolves around the dominant. The phrase modulates back to D minor, and after the second phrase plays, the track loops.
"Outlaw Driver" begins with the same startup as "Pink Ball Activate!" on brass. The boss theme from Kirby's Adventure is used as a bridge and for the bass for the majority of the song after.
