List of music
This theme plays when there isn't another theme to play, which includes the main menu and the map screen. The theme is very sparse, consisting of 4 chords that play for 15 seconds each. Each chord is made up of a mix of high notes on sustained piano, xylophone, and pad synthesizer, playing at random-sounding times, before the chord is left to fade until the next one. Some note sequences are similar to main Pikmin motif. The calm and open style of this theme sets an effective backdrop to the peaceful nature of the map and the game as a whole.
This theme replaces the main theme when flower planting is activated, and also overrides other music tracks. Its incredibly joyful nature matches the joy of the player's Mii while planting flowers, and it does this through a high-pitched ensemble of piano, mallet percussion, woodwinds, and harp, playing simple melodies over mostly major chords, in an overall rather varied piece of music.
This theme plays in the group of menu screens that the Lifelog is included in. A guitar and a raindrop synthesizer play a short and sustained melody over each chord, with the large space between these melodies filled by the slow swells of a pad synthesizer. The resulting theme is calm and reflective.
This theme plays during a Daily Lookback. It is a remixed version of the area results theme from Hey! Pikmin. On top of a steady beat and a base layer of rising and falling arpeggios, various layers are added and removed on top, including a groovy bassline and a high-pitched synth melody.
