Kirby, Kirby, Kirby, that's a name you should know~!
Kirby, Kirby, Kirby, he's the star of the show~!
Happy 20th to the super tuff pink puff, the one and only Kirby! To celebrate this joyous occasion, I celebrate the only way I know how (to do so decently)!
I celebrate through piano!
In order to pay tribute to not only Kirby's 20th anniversary, but to the first game I've ever played in the series - Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, I whipped this medley up!
"Prelude to Nightmare" is meant to portray the events preceding the story of the game, as written below. Spoiler alert if you haven't beaten Kirby's Adventure or NiDL!
The tyrannical and dastardly being known as Nightmare has made his presence known in the Fountain of Dreams, found in the beautifully desolate Rainbow Resort, and prepares to spread his influence to the citizens of Dream Land by corrupting their dreams into twisted nightmares!
This unfortunate turn of events leaves King Dedede with no choice but to break apart the Star Rod, the source of the Fountain's power, in order to protect his people. Keeping one for himself, he gives a piece of the Star Rod to each of his friends so that Nightmare's influence will not spread.
Though Nightmare's evil won't reach the minds of Dream Land's citizens, there comes a terrible price to pay: by removing the Star Rod, the ability to dream has ceased to exist. Despite Dedede's temporary victory over Nightmare, not one soul on Planet Popstar will dream ever again.
However, all it takes is one dreamless night for a powerful, yet deceivingly cute, pink warrior to take the initiative...
The medley also counts as my entry for the Kirby 20th Anniversary Biggest Fan Contest, hosted by Nintendo! Good luck to all of the other participants who entered!
And Sarah, my one and only, I dedicate this song to you!
As for me, I'm off to fluff up my pillow and get ready for a good night's sleep! 'night everyone!
P.S.: Also, as you /might've/ noticed, Garageband is starting to warm up to me a bit! Can't wait to crack down on instrumentation!
