The song only uses the two square wave channels of the NES APU with the lead on channel 2 and the backup on channel 1. This was most likely not the choice of the composer, but rather a poorly-written audio driver which couldn't handle sound effect interruptions, so all sound effects were relegated to the noise and triangle channels.

In the game, the song is played at Gran Mountain and Rolsa. It is track 2 in the NSF file.
