A love letter to Chrysalis in the form of a parody of Chevelle’s Send the Pain Below, Tender Horn Does Glow sees Stallionslaughter sing his appreciation for the queen of the hive and… oviposition? Oh my. He even goes harder vocally than the original during the bridge, even adding a few extra screams towards the end! Feels good to have him back.
OK! How about some hilarious laughs! Super Trampoline has you taken care of. A parody of the rock classic “Hotel California” by The Eagles. With an excellent rendition on classic piano of the melodies. He hilariously talks about every single aspect of our fandom, all the good and all of the cringe of being in this fandom. From the nostalgic 2012 to our present. It’s all there and it’s Brony Cringe at its best. I really don’t need to say more, because its all there. As always, This Qilin unfortunately lol..asks you to judge for yourself.
The support for Ponyfest Online has been groundbreaking in our fandom, and that’s just putting it lightly mind you. So, now the pair of Pony Abstract and N.Hollow have gone the extra mile by (doing a pony parody of Rae sremmurd – Swang) creating a low bouncing and booming track , full of hip hop bass and club-style atmospheric melodies. PA then pays tribute to Ponyfest Online with very chill lyrics that make light of the whole convention itself with all the fun little bits and memes. N.Hollow, done with taking crap from critics, throws down some quick rhymes for those folks in his trademark manner. It’s a fun little theme song for Ponyfest Online, complete with some visuals from some PonyTown shenanigans that make it look like someone had a lot of time on their hands. FuF stuff I tell ya. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
The king is back! And with a Rarity song no less! And bringing ALL the plushies! There’s something utterly cool to playing the guitar and screaming vocals with tons of plushies around you, and Stallion totally understands that special appeal. A godlike parody of Limp Bizkit’s song Break Stuff, it is also a very lovely and fun experience with that music video and description immersing you in the story, and this is such a treat!
Strong language warning.
4everfreebrony turns up the feels with this ponification of Brothers In Arms by Dire Straits. Using the all-too familiar theme of Twilight coping with the loss of her friends before her, he sings softly yet with such conviction, backed by an emotional set of pianos and keyboards while practically having a duet with the lead guitar. This also marks the release of his latest album Poni, consisting of ponified versions of popular songs!
(Listen to “Blue on Black” Here)
Applejack, The strongest earth pony in Equestria. The realist pony to talk to about life. A pony thats tougher than a 2$ steak, but packs the muscle to get the job done. AJ, like it or not, is an awesome character. But can a song about her say that better? How about some soulful country rock? Leave it to the man that can do it all musically. 4everfreebrony. He takes Kenny Wayne Shepherd “Blue on Black” and ponifide’s it into a preview single of his upcoming parody album. The song frankly hits applejack right to her core as a character. The lyrics are simple but sound. The transition of the melodies in this is smooth and clean. Specially the guitar solos that are done spot on from the original and adds the rock elements to this smooth country flavor. This song is a goodie for all you Applejack lovers out there. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
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 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!
HarmonyCon 2020 is on the horizon, and the anthem for it has arrived, courtesy of Brilliant Venture under their new alias, PON. Resonance is a synthwave track that comprises of ponified versions of classic vaporwave songs to fit with the con’s vaporwave/80s aesthetic. Along with the 80s inspired instrumentation as is typical of vapor/synthwave are sampled and edited MLP vocal chops that recreate the melody of the original songs, and they fit right in. See how many songs you can recognise!
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!
