"K.K. Sonata" is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Animal Crossing: City Folk. It has a sad, 18th century mood, and is a classical composition that has a piano soloist throughout the whole song, without any other instruments accompanying the solitary pianist. The live version follows the correct structure for sonata form: exposition, development, and recapitulation, ending with a coda. The aircheck version forgoes this structure so that it can loop, only using the recapitulation and coda sections of the full piece.

Album cover[edit]

Album cover in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

The album cover for "K.K. Sonata" features K.K. Slider parodying portraits of 17th-century German baroque composers: the cover's graphic design is a reference to the long-standing tradition of uniform, yellow titles on the cover art of albums released on the classical record label Deutsche Grammophon. In New Leaf, the text is illegible, but in New Horizons, it reads "K.K. Sonata" in a fraktur typeface.
