This article is about the select theme from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, and should not be confused with the similarly-named select theme from Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land.

"Select Screen"[Japanese title] is a theme from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, heard in its file select.


The Select File Screen.

"Select Screen" is a relatively short track in A minor and in 4/4. The instrumentation consists of clear, crystal-like bells. Its melody is steady, with each note taking a single beat. The first two phrases start with a rising intonation followed by a gradual descent, while the third and fourth have a smoother movement. The second phrase in particular has an F-sharp, characteristic of melodic minor. The accompaniment provides harmonic support in semiquavers.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards[edit]

This theme plays during the file select of Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, while the title screen proper is silent.

Kirby: Canvas Curse[edit]

In Kirby: Canvas Curse, an arrangement of "Select Screen" plays under circumstances identical to those in its game of origin. This arrangement's instrumentation sounds more like an acoustic guitar than bells.

Other appearances[edit]

On The Sound of Kirby Café 2, a remixed medley of "Studying the Factory" and "Select Screen" is included and titled 眠れるキカイのプラネット (Planet of Sleeping Machines). It was arranged by Hirokazu Ando.


  • "Select Screen" was sampled in a song by American rapper Juice WRLD named "Kirby Selecta", which notably went unreleased and saw the light when it was leaked on January 15th, 2019.
