Origin[edit]

This song is a fast-paced arrangement of the title theme for Banjo-Kazooie. The song repeats three times; the first loop is faithful to the original arrangement, the second adds a half-tempo techno beat, and the third removes said beat, adds orchestral instruments and an electric guitar, and raises the key from C major to D♯ major. When returning to the first loop, the electric guitar is kept during its initial verse.

Origin[edit]

This song is an arrangement of the theme for Spiral Mountain, the introductory area of Banjo-Kazooie. Arranged by the original composer, the remix references the themes for other areas in both Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie, including Treasure Trove Cove, Freezeezy Peak, Gruntilda's Lair, Rusty Bucket Bay, and Mayahem Temple.[1] It begins as a faster-paced, bluegrass-style remix of the original theme with a fiddle, piccolo, banjo, and tuba as the main instruments. When the first loop is complete, however, it becomes a triumphant orchestral arrangement, and returns to the beginning after an original refrain.

Trivia[edit]

  • Banjo-Kazooie is the first franchise where a non-Japanese musician arranged a theme.[2] Coincidentally, it was immediately followed by Undertale in the same time frame.
    • Series composer Grant Kirkhope was first hinted about the prospect of Banjo and Kazooie in Super Smash Bros. when Davide Soliani, creative director of the Switch-exclusive Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (which Kirkhope also composed for), emailed him asking for his contact information on behalf of Nintendo. Kirkhope was initially skeptical, but accepted the offer anyway; upon learning that he was being asked to arrange music for Banjo and Kazooie's appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, he was incredibly excited to return to the characters.[3]
