Maressey – Stretch Out and Wait/Reel Around the Fountain | Post-Punk

Tracks 8 and 9 from The TwiLuna Album are bundled together in this video from Maressey. Stretch Out and Wait is performed by Warbalist and is sung from Luna’s perspective, depicting a scenario where Twilight reflects on her relationship with Luna deeply, while the latter simply tells her to loosen up and enjoy the moment. Warbalist’s vocals capture Morrissey’s dreary singing style with flying colours. The next track, Reel Around The Fountain, is performed by project leader Freewave with vocals from Metal Mare. This one is from Twilight’s eyes, where she finally comes to terms with her love for Luna. Metal Mare’s vocals soar beautifully in front of the somber instrumental, lead by tight rhythm section and a clean guitar. These two tracks are a lovely pair!

Maressey – This Night Has Opened My Eyes | Indie Pop

Maressey proves that you don’t need to change much to make a great ponification! Track 4 from the Twiluna album is This Night Has Opened My Eyes, a ponified version of the Smiths track. Maressey’s interpretation depicts Maud going through a lonely time while living without her younger sister, Pinkie. FritzyBeat takes lead vocals here, and fits the tone of the music like it was meant for him!

Maressey – Well I Wonder | Indie Rock

After a long wait, the final album in the Maressey tetralogy is here. Track 7 from The Twiluna Album is Well I Wonder, a parody of the Smiths song of the same name as well as the album’s central track. It depicts a scenario where Twilight encounters Luna on a visit to Canterlot, and the two form a large bond, making it a duet between the two. Faux Snyder and Metal Mare brilliantly play those roles, respectively, and Freewave‘s instrumental rendition of the original track is top notch!

Maressey – The Twiluna Album | Album | Jangle Pop


After a long 3 year wait, Maressey have delivered their fourth and final album, The Twiluna Album! As we’ve come to expect, Maressey is a tribute act that focuses on ponified versions of songs performed by The Smiths, a British indie pop/rock band that were around in the 80s. Freewave leads the Maressey project and has brought a large amount of guests on board to help with the music and vocals, such as FritzyBeat, Faux Snyder, Fire Frets and Sylverlining. Snyder’s vocal talents in particular are to be noted, and can be heard across songs such as Bigmouth Strikes Again, Luna in a Coma and Well I Wonder; her higher voice makes for a nice contrast in place of Morrissey’s deeper baritone range. Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want showcases Zatslol‘s vocal work, which is also noteworthy for featuring a striking resemblance to Morrissey’s own voice. Standout tracks include Some Mares…, Luna in a Coma and Back to the Old House, which stand as very faithful renditions to their original tracks.

Maressey – Some Mares Are Bigger Than Others | Jangle Pop

There’s a lot of returning faces in the music scene lately… Maressey, a large collaboration project based around ponified versions of The Smiths songs, has just returned after a 2 year gap with a ‘Some Mares…’, a parody of their song Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others. This track is one of many from their upcoming album ‘The TwiLuna Album’, and features Faux Snyder on vocals with Freewave performing the music. Snyder’s vocals are top-notch and fit perfectly with the genre, and Freewave’s musical skills make for a great tribute worthy of standing up to the original. TwiLuna doesn’t have a release date, but be sure to keep an eye out!

iRhymeTheSongs – Oh, Little Dragon (Oh, Pretty Woman Parody) | Classic Pop

A new release from iRhymeTheSongs is a fresh breath of Equestrian air in this world… For the musician always makes such lovely ponifications! It feels like this could be the equivalent of our famous Oh, Pretty Woman song, in Equestria. Just imagining Rarity listening to this like the kind of Classic Pop/Rock songs she’d appreciate… wonderful! The vocals are definitely very fitting for the genre, and the whole ponification is a dream coming true for the fan of oldie-goldies like these!

PrinceWhateverer – Absolute Territory (Covering Ken Ashcorp) | Rock

(Listen to Ken’s suggestive original if you have not done so Here)
(Ok disclaimer: This song is not for everyone, there are VERY suggestive adult themes clearly talked about in this song or done. fair warning)
I don’t have to be a brony to even understand the topic of this very hot and sweaty tune. But if you going to be talking about ponies when comes to this song. Then I guess this honesty describes what Shining Armor felt like when he first saw Cadance in high school. The cute mare that has picked up on the fact your into her. SO it’s your lucky day because she is into you as well. My Cadance is not so proper when she gets away from Canterlot castle LOL. Prince, however, has put this naughty cover into his own style of rock and roll. The way he sings this song kinda reminds of all people, Marilyn Manson. In the style if delivering the lyrics. It adds to the spice if this song. The guitars are sexy and hard to fit the theme of the song, The melodies mimic the original nicely with extra hard rock flavor to the zest of this lewd track. So if it’s your kind of music. Check it out. This Qilin will not judge you for it.
