Kingdom Hearts III[edit]

Composition[edit]

"Go for It!" is approximately two minutes and five seconds in Kingdom Hearts. In Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, the piece is two minutes and sixteen seconds long. In Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, the piece is two minutes and six seconds long. Regardless of the game, the piece has a time signature of 4/4 time. With the exception of Kingdom Hearts III, which has a tempo of 143 beats per minute, all games play the piece at a tempo of 144 beats per minute.

For instrumentation, each version uses the same instruments, including some of the MIDI instrument sound fonts. The typical instrumentation includes: a complete strings section- violin, viola, cello, and stringed bass, flute, clarinet, trumpet, French horn, trombone, tuba, crash cymbals, triangle, xylophone, snare drum, bass drum, and chimes.

Overall, the piece establishes a heroic tone due to the use of fanfare rhythms and articulations. While the introduction fanfare in Kingdom Hearts III is slightly different from the other versions in the series, the dynamic and grand atmosphere is still evident. Unique to this style of playing is the use of multiple tonguing, in this case double tonguing, the brass instruments- namely, trumpets. This eight and two sixteenth-note rhythmic figure creates a sense of drive and forward motion, a nod to the encouragement and excitement of the coliseum. The snare drum establishes a consistent, rhythmic foundation that helps connect and maintain the accompanying parts. The strings section is primarily used as the chordal background, favoring the longer note durations over the main melody's livelier and shorter note values. In the bass line, and also heard in the opening introduction measures, the rhythm follows an accented emphasis on the "up" beats- traditionally counted as the "and" of whichever "down"/numeric beat that precedes it.
