"Pollyanna" (also known as "Home Sweet Home" and "A Certain Someone's Memories") is a frequently ripped track from the MOTHER series on the SiIvaGunner channel.
"Pollyanna" (sometimes subtitled "I Believe In You") is a recurring song composed by Keiichi Suzuki and appearing in each game from the MOTHER trilogy. In the first game, EarthBound Beginnings/MOTHER, it is played when the protagonist Ninten has no partner (being replaced by "Bein' Friends" when it is not the case). In the second game, EarthBound, a slowed down version appears in the form of "Home Sweet Home", playing at Ness' house and Paula's Polestar Preschool; part of it can also be heard in the tracks "Onett" and "Good Friends, Bad Friends". Finally, the song appears in MOTHER 3 under the name "A Certain Someone's Memories" at the 100th floor of the bad guy's lair, which is filled with mementos from the previous game.
The song also appeared in other games and media. It arguably gained its status of theme song of the series as a whole after a remixed version of it was featured on the Onett stage in Super Smash Bros. Melee under the name "Mother 2" (though the sequels would retcon it as "Pollyanna (I Believe In You)") which helped popularize the series as a whole around the world. The song was also rearranged and featured in the official soundtrack of the first MOTHER which featured original lyrics performed by Catherine Warwick as well as the MOTHER 3+ CD.
The term "pollyanna" refers to someone overly optimistic and looking at everything on the bright side.

The first "Pollyanna" rip uploaded on the GiIvaSunner channel was "A Certain Someone's Memories - MOTHER 3", a classic 7 GRAND DAD joke, on March 8, 2016 (it was eventually reuploaded on the SiIvaGunner channel on April 30, 2016). The first rip "Pollyanna" uploaded on the new channel was "Someone's Memories (Pollyanna) - MOTHER 3+", a mashup with the theme song from Cory in the House on April 14, 2016, followed the next day by "Pollyanna - EarthBound Beginnings/MOTHER", a purposely bad cover of the lyrical version.
There are currently 17 rips of this song on the SiIvaGunner channel.
Notably, "Pollyanna" has the same first four notes as "Snow halation".
