Madeleine was the hero's (Edsun) girlfriend and I tried to write something that was light with a strong theme.
This piece actually turned up briefly in Banjo-Kazooie as Tootie's theme. You hear it in the intro movie as she skips through the grass, it's only a small snippet but this is where it came from. Tim Stamper wanted to call all the characters in Banjo-Kazooie after instruments hence Banjo and Kazooie, Tootie was originally going to be called Piccolo so I thought the flute playing the main theme would suit her. I can't remember why we abandoned that naming convention, maybe there just wasn't enough instruments!
