The song was written by Hirokazu Tanaka in Z80 assembly using his sound driver. Hirokazu should be contacted for an official title.

Composition

The song is in the key of D♭ major, in the 4/4 time signature, and plays at 150 beats per minute. The second square wave plays the lead melody while the first square wave follows it as an echo, reminiscent of Tanaka's style. Like the Rocket Blastoff tune, the square channels play all eighth notes. This, combined with the song being in the key of D♭ major, gives it an uncanny resemblance to the main guitar riff of the Guns N' Roses song Sweet Child O' Mine:

D♭ A♭ E♭ A♭ F A♭ E♭
G♭ A♭ F A♭ E♭ A♭ F
D♭ A♭ E♭ A♭ F A♭ E♭
G♭ A♭ F A♭ E♭ A♭ F
A♭ B♭ G♭ B♭ F B♭ E♭ B♭
D B♭ E♭ B♭ F B♭ E♭ B♭
E♭ G♭ D♭ G♭ D♭ G♭ C G♭
C G♭ B♭ G♭ C G♭ E♭ G♭

The PCM channel acts as the bassline and changes notes every measure. It descends down and up the D♭ major scale:

D♭ C B♭ A♭ E♭ G♭ A♭

The last note holds for two measures.
