Planet Popstar (theme from Kirby's Return to Dream Land)
- This article is about the theme from Kirby's Return to Dream Land. For the energetic and happy theme from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, see Planet Popstar (theme from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards).
Planet Popstar is a calm and relaxing theme in 12/8. The theme appears to be in the key of F major for the most part. To add to its relaxing sound, the theme has guitar chords to back it up. It sways up and down chords, each note sounding on an offbeat, and ever so slightly reaches distant tonalities in its harmonic progressions.
Kirby's Return to Dream Land / Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe
This theme can be heard when choosing a level in Popstar in the original game and in its remake. It is the third song in both of their Jukeboxes.
There is also a medley exclusive to Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe that contains this theme, a 3/4 rendition of "Sky Tower", and "Northeast Frost Street" which plays when viewing the "Credits" cutscene in the Theater. This version is called Distant, Shining, Yellow Star. It was arranged by Yuki Shimooka and can be found as track 204 in the game's Jukebox.
