Scattered through World 2 are songs that, once learned, can be played for various effects.

Name Notes Effect Acquisition
Secret Song 1-2-3-1-2-3 When played, reveals secrets that can be blown open. Learned in the secret shop in World 2, Zone 1, Area 8
  • Once you get to the river with crocodiles and moving logs, climb around the cliffs and across the flower launch pads on the far left of the river from the side that you enter from. Interact with a Log inside a shop.
Gatekeeper Lullaby 3-3-2-3-3-1 Opens specific doors, and temporarily disables nearby mouths on the mountainsides of World 2, Zone 3. Learned in a secret area in World 2, Zone 2
  • Climb on the roof of the gong pagoda, use the flower launch pad and navigate the maze to Raccoon Kingpin. Use a bomb on the dark patch of grass between the maze and the Stump.
Shatter Serenade 1-3-3-1-3-3 Destroys nearby ice formations such as stalactites and frozen waterfalls. Unlike using the torch, waterfalls opened in this way will not seal again. Learned in a secret area in World 2, Zone 3, Area 5
  • Use the Gatekeeper Lullaby near the middle of the corridor covered in spiked ground, navigate through the maze and kill all Bananas in the large room.


  • Earliest obtainable in Zone 2, World 2's hidden shop, which is located near checkpoint 7.
  • Using the Wooden Whistle skill will produce the Wooden Whistle "kit" immediately. However, until the animation for pulling out the whistle and putting it to your lips is finished, nothing you input will be counted as playing a song.
    • This is extremely important when attempting to reach Moto's Finger and the hidden rooms adjacent to it; you have little time to play the song that opens the doorway when you're still producing the flute on the evaporating clouds in front of it. You may also enter the song flawlessly and wonder why it doesn't work.
  • Players do not actually need to own the Wooden Whistle to learn the Gatekeeper Lullaby.
