Cherry Blossom – Together As One | Acoustic / Orchestral

With this track we’ve got ourselves some music to chill to and just be happy. “Together As One” isn’t a big beat firework or a big multiple guitar piece; rather, its perfection lies in its simplicity. After a long, stressful day of work or school this is a perfect chill out track.
Proofread by theCANderson; big thanks to him!

Pipetka – Calamity Theme | Country Rock

Fans of Fallout Equestria. I really should get a kick out of this one! The gun-slinging Mr fix it pony pegasus gets a very character-driven theme that if you never read anything Fallout: Equestria wise raises hoove, you get an idea of the character itself. You listen along to a very sly and hard acoustic guitar that sets the tone for Calamity coming into taking care of business. Then you get a feeling how much an outlaw and formidable guy Calamity is when you get this bass and drum combo with the taste of Harmonical and Tambourine for that “business is about to pick up the flavor.” Calamity character has had it rough by reading the backstory, and this theme sure gives you that impression. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

Crusader! – Giggles & Gumdrops (Covering 4EverfreeBrony) | Pop Rock

Seven years ago, 4EverfreeBrony released a signature song about a certain bubbly, quirkily unpredictable party pony with the ability to always lift everyone’s spirits. Crusader! has breathed new life into this fun piece with his cover of this vibrant song. Winning first place in 4EverfreeBrony’s recent cover competition, Crusader!’s cover stays true to the upbeat, lighthearted nature of the original song while adding his own unique elements. Some heavier electric guitar in the background is enhanced with upbeat plucky chords on the ukulele, perfectly suited to Pinkie’s ebullient personality. Relaxed vocals coupled with a ukulele and electric guitar create an energetic party atmosphere, as if Pinkie herself were in the room! Even better, as if this track isn’t bright or joyful enough, a lively electric piano solo adds even more enthusiasm to this well-deserving winner of 4Everfreebrony’s competition!

Cantersoft & Friends – Extended Theme Song (Covering Daniel Ingram) | Rock

What better way to celebrate the 10th anniversary of FiM than with an awesome megacollab?

It’s clear that a lot of love went into this song, and the effort was well-worth it! As a giant bonus, the accompanying video is a wonderful companion to the song and combines fan art and animation with great clips from the show. Please check it out and give these guys some love!
