#16 salty is a song by Dedf1sh.


This song is used for some stages that require the player to pop balloons and stages that require the player to defeat enemies. The song consists of a synthesizer instrument, starting the piece with a rising bass note which increases in pitch as well as a synthesizer rhythm that repeats and returns many times throughout the track. Soon after, percussion is added, with the return of the rising bass note. The song has a very frantic feel, due to the fast tempo, the fast synthesizer notes, and the repeating percussion ostinatos.


Salty is a slang term referring to frustration over losing. Fittingly, this song is usually used in difficult stations.
