Welcome to GamesRadar's daily blast of all things pertaining to the ever-growing field of game music. Each post will introduce new sounds, games, composers and fan-made remixes of gaming's greatest aural achievements.
Game: Kirby's Dream Land

It's the first Game Music of the Day since E3 2010 closed its doors, and to further celebrate the announcement of Kirby's Epic Yarn we're heading way back to the pink puff's very first adventure - before he was even pink, actually.
After breezing through five fairly simple levels and stomping King DeDeDe (whose music is also deserving of a special shoutout) you're treated to this standard-sounding but no less uplifting credits music. In all honesty, the version you're listening to is from the SNES Kirby Super Star, which borrows most of the Game Boy game's music for the Spring Breeze area.

The music in Kirby's Dreamland was always quite chipper, so it's no surprise the ending follows suit. But there's more to it than that - the ending itself, with Kirby inflated to blimp size, carrying all the food back to Dream Land against a setting sun, helps complete the experience.
Oh fine, here's the damn DeDeDe music. I think it became so memorable because it's the only song in the original Kirby that had a sense of challenge or conflict instead of skipping through a field of floating cakes.
