Lol! What a way to revive an absolute fandom CLASSIC!! The original parody of My Chemical Romance’s “I’m Not Okay” took the fandom by storm last year, and this cover does a great job of keeping the energy going! The more instrumental focus makes for a wild and new experience, especially if you liked the original. I do wonder how Slightly Amiss feels about this… I love this fandom XD just remember: it’s not gay 😉
Short yet so important, this parody of Friends in response to that reference in Pony Life is very appreciated, and Luck Rock was the pony musician for the job! Evershade even made a mini PMV to accompany the song, and overall this new Pony Life fan work is just SO lovely and awesome! Give it up to the creators everypony! I wish that more works like these get made!
Always so dedicated, StableTwoStallion contributed to the party for Nightmare Night with a mad cover of a mad song, even inviting HiddenFaithy for a collab! The SFM visuals made to accompany the tracks are as epic as ever, and it’s awesome for that original track about Discord and Screwball to get some more love!
MelodyBrony got the dream team together for this one! Himself on rhythm guitar, Luck on lead, Agatan’s vocals, Whirlwind on drums, and IvoryBrony on keys make for a killer birthday tribute to a personal favorite of mine from Forest Rain. It’s as full of energy as the original, and every bit as much of a joy to have on repeat.
What a PERFECTLY timed release from Brilliant Venture! I remember hearing whispers about something like this in the works, but I was BLOWN AWAY by this one! The classic Brilliant Venture dubstep sound is joined by the absolutely gorgeous vocal work of Koa, who does a fantastic job of performing what sounds to be an extended version of Open Up Your Eyes! The extended lyrics are written by Venture, and do a wonderful job of expanding on the anger and despair felt by Tempest regarding her past. A brilliant (wink wink) performance by two amazing artists, definitely worth a listen (or two! or four!!)
Today we’ve got ourselves a song by Shotgun Angel Productions, the people working on the Audio Book Fallout Equestria: Dead Tree. This song is a re-imagination of Johnny Cash’s God’s Gonna Cut Em Down and even though some lines are similar it’s nonetheless it’s own track. The lyrics talk about no matter how far you run, no matter what you do to hide it, one day all the ponies who did wrong will get what’S coming to them, the lying gear trader, the evil raider will all get their due. This song is sure to make you whip and sing along, it’s just this great, and not to a small part because of the awesome singing voice of Nowacking.
The fourth DustCar race gave birth to many lovely ideas and appreciated remixes of goldie-oldies, and I’m delighted to get this epic and emotional remix of Omnipony‘s Equestria in Grey, even featuring an awesome guitar performance by Fetlocked himself, wielding an Epiphone Special SG! Let’s hope even more musicians join the club, and then we could have our own Afterschool Tea Time band! (reference intended)
Kareniya brings us his amazing cover of “Hush Now, Little Sister” a rather lesser remembered song from the episode ‘Somepony to Watch Over Me’ and no matter what you think about the original you will like his cover of it. Using only a guitar and his voice Kareniya gives this song the feeling of an old classic you listen to when you go on vacation cause you´re parents put it on a CD. The song is perfect too just chill out for an hour or two with it just in the background or as background music for working on anything. The song really conveys the feeling of security the original gave to Apple Bloom.
Longtime fandom music fans likely need no introduction to the original “Flutterwonder” by PinkiePieSwear. There have been many remixes and covers of this fantastic track, and NyxTheShield made an acoustic cover of it themself years ago (with the help of some great vocals by Shiny Song), adding some simple but lovely lyrics in place of the masterful vocal splicing of the original. Definitely check out the previous versions if you haven’t before!
This new version is absolutely beautiful. It benefits from NyxTheShield’s improved production skills, and the acoustic music format is even more immersive than before. The song even features some great recorder (yes, recorder) work! The secret sauce here is that Vannamelon‘s voice suits Fluttershy’s character really well, and, paired with the accompanying art and animation, it transports the viewer to the time of young Fluttershy discovering the wonders of life on the ground. The overall effect is mesmerizing and uplifting. Please give it a listen!
