Tallon Overworld is the name of the theme that plays in the area of the same name up until the acquisition of the Spider Ball upgrade. At that point, it changes to a different, less cheerful theme. The second theme was later re-arranged for the Tallon Overworld Pinball table in Metroid Prime Pinball. On the Metroid Prime & Fusion Original Soundtracks, the first theme is called Planet Tallon IV, and the second Tallon Overworld. It is also available in the Soundtrack Gallery of New Play Control! Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime Trilogy. The first Tallon Overworld theme is a remix of the famous Brinstar theme from the original Metroid, and is also arranged for the Record of Samus theme that plays on the Mission Final screen at the end of Prime.
The song is set in the genre of ambient music. It is played in the keys of G Mixolydian, Tonicized C, F Mixolydian and Bb Mixolydian. The Time Signature is a Duple Meter with Duple Subdivisions.

When Samus first arrived on Tallon IV, the theme played was blissful and whimsical, evocative of the seemingly lush and verdant paradise that is the Tallon Overworld. As the game progresses, however, a far more melancholy theme replaces it, and is representative of the player's realization that Tallon IV's beauty may soon be coming to an end.
