"Simple Stage"[conjectural title] is a music track that first appeared in Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble.


True to its name, "Simple Stage" is a simple theme. Composed in G major and in 4/4, the track is very bubbly and light, but also sparse with its chiptune instrumentation. Most of the track is carried by background percussion, as the actual melody takes frequent breaks. It isn't until a brief measure in 3/4 halfway through before the song picks up a little, immediately switching back to 4/4 as the melody and other counter melodies shine. This second section of the song features a lot of repetition and rising/falling melodic action, ultimately ending with a part that winds down, and then perks back up into a looping point.

Game appearances[edit]

In the same game, the medley used for the staff credits contains a segment using "Simple Stage"'s melody, but in a style more reminiscent of "Green Greens". This song is oddly absent from the Sound Room.
