"K.K. Faire" is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Doubutsu no Mori. It is old-fashioned, traditional, and sounds much like traditional folk music from Okinawa and the Ryukyu Islands of Japan. The instruments appear to be mainly traditional Ryukyuan instruments, such as the Sanshin (banjo-like instrument), as well as the voice of an elderly man singing lead (K.K. Slider's vocal parts), with occasional cheerful chants (the high wind instrument) that are often heard in traditional-style dances at festivals.

The song's composition is extremely similar to the Okinawan folk song "Tancha Mebushi" in specific. The Japanese name and album cover may also be a reference to "Haisai Ojisan" by Shoukichi Kina and his band Champloose.

Album cover[edit]

Album cover in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

The album cover for "K.K. Faire'" features K.K. Slider playing sanshin with Cheri (June in the Animal Crossing e-Reader card) and Truffles dancing in the background while dressed in traditional Japanese clothing. In the Animal Crossing e-Reader card, the title of the song at the top position reads "K.K. Faire." There is no text in New Leaf cover, but in New Horizons, the text reads the Japanese title of the song, "ハイサイけけ" (Haisai Keke).
