(Click on “Watch on YouTube” to access the video, since embeds have been disabled for this video.) Oh wow, I never thought I’d see a cover/parody of this song, but yet here we are! The original is an older classic that I used to listen to on loop, and this parody is just as good! Now, before I start tripping over my words in nostalgia, let’s get started with the instrumental: As you might expect it’s close to the original. In a lot of parts you can really hear the original, but if you remember what I’ve said back for the BlackIceMusic Remix of Anthropology, that isn’t a criticism but a compliment since you can also really hear that this is Likonan’s very own masterpiece. We get a chorus part that’s similar to the original, and then in other parts we get a more country sounding melody as both melodies alternate with a few different bits in between. I have to give thanks to Likonan for putting up the instrumental as a separate video (you can find it here) as it was a big help in evaluating and appreciating what makes this part of the song so amazing! Now the lyrics: The lyrics are pony greatness! They match the flow of the original song nicely while being a nice tribute to the show. In the chorus sections we get references to the Mane Six and during the other parts there are references to some secondary characters! Proofed by theCANderson, big thanks to him!
Who said that with G5 on the Horizon we couldn’t have some more fun with G4 classics! “My Past Is Not Today” has become a very important hashtag for the fandom, because we all made mistakes in the past and deserve to be seen for who we are today. Derek Spear’s guitar work combined with the awesome vocals of MIKITANII make for an amazing song that is an undeniable delight! Big thanks to theCANderson for proofreading!
Well, have I mentioned that Skyshard does amazing orchestral pieces? If not, let me do so now! “Onto Another Call of Destiny” is a wonderful piece dedicated to G5, and it’s full of the most beautiful strings, stunning drums, and so much more! I don’t make it a secret that I enjoy me some good orchestral music, but this blows everything else out of the water. No matter what you think of orchestral music, you will enjoy this! Thanks once again to theCANderson for proofreading!
Ahhhhh, this is such a fun trip! Aventrix, who may or may not be remixing every track on this little album, is at it again (or isn’t) with this wonderful remix of an absolute classic! The lovely melody of the original really comes through here with a new vibe thanks to a pitch shift and Aventrix’s lovely synth additions and little touches that breathe a different kind of life into the song. Paired with a slick video, it’s an absolute joy of a track!
A fantastically frantic twist on the song “Becoming Popular“, this track from the latest ETC album is a treat for any fan of intense music! Opening with a stripped down version of the melody, the song goes along merrily until it takes a sharp turn and descends into delightful distortion. What I especially enjoy about this track is how it takes such an elegant song delivered by a pony who is the epitome of grace, straps a couple of rockets to it, and sends it screaming down the tracks. Awesome.
(That title comes from the filename of the downloaded song from the description) This song might make you cry! With the help of TalkNet, one of the musicians from 4chan made such a wonderful and emotional song where Fluttershy is singing to anon about the regrets she has. “I just wanted to be your mare.” That line alone is just taking me straight to where I want to belong in this community!! Thank you to the musician for this, and shout-out to all the passionate bronies on /mlp/! (If you read this, consider submitting a song to Pony Family, made precisely to showcase pony initiatives like these! Wink!) Love, love everywhere!
Thunder Dash is continuing the spirit of FiM episodes with these releases!! Check out the new amazing moral and message in the description, and get ready to melt upon these sweet and cuddly melodies on the piano! That this is all an improv, is both impressive and very lovely!
Today we’ve got ourselves another banger from the amazing Tw3Lv3! The song “Last Tempest” is a few years old now, but that didn’t stop her from transforming it into this angry sounding, Neurofunk masterpiece. We start this track with a beat that slowly builds up until it hits us like a ton of bricks, and then the song ramps up to an amazing drop. After that we get this slower beat with slightly muffled lyrics, which creates a really good atmosphere for this song, before we return once more to the build up and drop and an awesome instrumental section. For the next drop we get a bit of a different melody, and afterwards we get a DnB-sounding part before the song slowly fades out. Proofread by theCANderson; thankies to him!
This awesome track from Equestrian Terror Corps’ latest album opens with an eerie melody and ramps up with a Celestia vocal chop from “A Canterlot Wedding” before the fast-paced percussion kicks in. There is a delightful transition that brings in the distorted bassline, which really kicks things into high gear. The song mellows in the middle before ramping back up, and blaring sirens pair with the full arrangement to great effect! An awesome contribution to the album!
In case you hadn’t heard about it before, Glimm, Khaliber, and DJ Skystorm held a remix contest for their song “Izzy Pop“, and some fantastic artists got on board! Then they made the whole thing avaliable for free on Bandcamp! Legends. Speaking of legends, you’ve probably heard a few tracks from Dropper Vampire and Varexis before, and for good reason. The two super skilled artists created this awesome collaboration, which sounds like it’s being pumped from the speakers of Equestria’s hottest club! The fantastic vocals and melody from the original are carried over here, and the backing instrumental is pumped full of dark, vibrant energy, creating a lively and highly danceable soundscape. Great effects and sound design throughout meld perfectly with synths and dialed in bass to create a super satisfying remix. Check it out and get your day pumping!
