Themes ▼

this week's theme is: the big reveal

The show seems to have a lot of these, doesn't it? (Trixie, Flimflam's entrance, Rainbow Dash's SONIC RAINBOOM, and then some)

So, write a soundtrack for a big reveal!
What are you revealing? Is it grandoise or underwhelming?

How does everypony react?

Spirit of Chaos Aviators 2/25/2012 12:36:22am No.19 - Score: 13
Discord time! None of us can forget his big reveal... His return to the world he had left when he was turned to stone. Well he's BACK and NO MORE MR. NICE DISCORD!

Manticore H8_Seed 2/25/2012 4:07:08pm No.31 - Score: 9
What if there was a big reveal that the Manticore wasn't as friendly as we originally assumed?

The clouds rolling overhead block out all the light
The twisting trees and branches are an ominous sight
You know that something's watching, hear a howl in the night
And beneath your calm exterior you tremble with fright

Your legs begin to shake, and your tail starts to sway
You feel its hunger for you as you try to hide your dismay
You think you might be able to keep the beast at bay
But heed your better judgment; you know it's unwise to stay,


A mighty bellow signals that the hunt has commenced
You start to hoof it, bending to your own common sense
You know no one's around to help you mount a defense
And as you run, the air you're breathing starts to get dense

You try not to stumble, legs aquiver with fear
And all its vicious snarling is like a gun in your ear
Adrenaline numbs your body as it kicks into gear
You see your peaceful village and you finally think you're clear


Run from the Manticore
It senses your fear
So there's nowhere to hide, now

It's a creature like no other before:
A feral killing machine
So you should stay inside, now

Cower before the Manticore
Under cover of night
It'll beat you til you're black and blue

A terrifying carnivore;
You better watch your back because
It's gonna make a filly out of you

You loose a cry for help as you duck into town
You feel the massive tremors when its paws hit the ground
Your fellow ponies wake from the cacophonous sound
But no one tries to save you from the monster inbound

You collapse, exhausted from your perilous hike
The realization hits you that your head's on a pike
You bow before the manticore with tears in your eyes
You close your eyes in horror as you wait for its blow to strike

Nothing I do Peak Freak 2/20/2012 7:54:21am
No.6 - Score: 5
Episode response: Nothing I Do (Covered from Jamie Cullum)
Does it fit to the topic? Yes, just listen to the lyrics:
"Can nothing I do make you happy anymore,
Can nothing I say put a smile on your face..."

Have fun :3

Smile, Smile, Smile Song (Hard Rock Cover featuring Bronyfied & Whitetail) ISMBOFepicly 2/21/2012 10:59:35pm
No.11 - Score: 5
My now all time favorite song of the series. I just love chord progressions, especially the chorus. It sounds so happy but a little sad at the same time. Hard to explain. Hehe.

Ismbof: rhythm guitars, drums, piano, synth
Bronyfied: lead guitar
Fading Stars: bass guitar

This took a while. Want to sing along?


My name is Pinkie Pie (Hello!)
And I am here to say (How ya doin'?)
I'm gonna make you smile, and I will brighten up your day

It doesn't matter now (What's up?)
If you are sad or blue (Howdy!)
'Cause cheering up my friends is just what Pinkie's here to do

'Cause I love to make you smile, smile, smile
Yes I do
It fills my heart with sunshine all the while
Yes it does
'Cause all I really need's a smile, smile, smile
From these happy friends of mine

I like to see you grin (Awesome!)
I love to see you beam (Rock on!)
The corners of your mouth turned up
Is always Pinkie's dream (Hoof-Bump!)

But if you're kind of worried
And your face has made a frown
I'll work real hard and do my best
To turn that sad frown upside down

'Cause I love to make you grin, grin, grin
Yes I do
Busted out from ear to ear, let it begin
Just give me a joyful grin, grin, grin
And you fill me with good cheer

It's true, some days are dark and lonely
And maybe you feel sad
But Pinkie will be there to show you that it isn't that bad

There's one thing that makes me happy
And makes my whole life worthwhile
And that's when I talk to my friends and get them to smile

I really am so happy
Your smile fills me with glee
I give a smile, I get a smile
And that's so special to me

'Cause I love to see you beam, beam, beam
Yes I do
Tell me, what more can I say to make you see
That I do?
It makes me happy when you beam, beam, beam
Yes, it always makes my day

Come on everypony smile, smile, smile
Fill my heart up with sunshine, sunshine
All I really need's a smile, smile, smile
From these happy friends of mine
Come on everypony smile, smile, smile
Fill my heart up with sunshine, sunshine
All I really need's a smile, smile, smile
From these happy friends of mine
Yes a perfect gift for me
Is a smile as wide as a mile
To make me happy as can be
Smile, smile, smile, smile, smile
Come on and smile
Come on and smile

Melancholy Winter Amber Dream (Neon Jalapeno) Befriends F3nning's Voice 2/23/2012 1:13:07am No.15 - Score: 5
Why? Because I can make non-electronic music, too. Also because F3nning's sexy voice.


Within a snowy field we meet again
I tried to run away, tried to pretend
I was too afraid to face the truth
I was afraid to return to you

We lived together in harmony
But one mistake made it all fade away
And now, I can't even stand to see you
You left me in a pain I never knew

This is the last time we meet before
My thoughts of you dissappear, forevermore

As I walk away from the whitened field
The snow covers your grave, your stone shield

Discord's Riddle F3nning 2/25/2012 1:34:39am No.20 - Score: 5
Dubstep, Toastbeard, Balloon Party, all in one fabulous package!

The reveal is, obviously, that of Discord's riddle, manifest as dubstep, and portrayed via audio clips of him speaking.

Moonlight Exploding Heart Technique (EHT) 2/20/2012 2:12:42am No.5 - Score: 4
Most of my DnB is like, all dark and stuff.

I wanted to make a song that sounded more upbeat. SO I GUESS THATS MY BIG REVEAL GUYS

CMC SWAGGA WestJ 2/22/2012 6:05:44pm No.13 - Score: 3
Well, it's one I have been sitting on for a month, wondering whether to do anything with it, or scrap it. I decided to go ahead and hurriedly finish it, because If I didn't that would mean more procrastination.

It's my reveille to ToastBeard, as I am a new entrant, also, I feel that the Cutie Mark Crusader's song was their reveille to the world as well, saying "This is who we are, this is what we do!".

Not sure if I should stick [ZIQ24] on end of song name in dropbox or not... OH WELL

The Clanky Donkey 2000 Interrobang Pie 2/25/2012 9:23:05pm
No.36 - Score: 3
Pinkie Pie has angered Cranky so much that he's built a giant robot and is now going to exterminate everything!!! This backstory makes no sense.

A 2A03 remix of Yankee Doodle, which was a pleasant surprise to the credits of the most recent episode! This track uses a lot of techniques and wierd and random things that I've never really tried before, so sorry if you're put off!! It's also a tiny little bit of a stylistic emulation of HertzDevil, but only a little bit. DON'T GET MAD AT ME, HERTZYBABES~

Yes, I can copy-paste from Youtube.


Welcome, Welcome, Welcome Metal Cover Black Electric 2/23/2012 4:55:39pm No.17 - Score: 2
I didn't have a lot of time to do something for toastbeard this week, but Pinkie's Welcome song was super, super short so I thought "why not?"

Cranky Doodle Battle Theme? GingersnapsBrony 2/24/2012 6:55:34pm No.18 - Score: 2
I have no idea what this is.

Indian Winter Giver Sadsic 2/25/2012 3:46:35pm No.30 - Score: 2
The reveal of Native

SPEAKEQUESTRIAN mycutiemarkisagun 2/25/2012 9:01:42pm
No.35 - Score: 2

The Biggest,Hardest,Filthiest Drop Ever! Riff Track 2/19/2012 11:07:03am No.4 - Score: 1
Nothing in the world will prepare you for this.

Reveal Trap Card: Elements of Harmony Belgerum 2/21/2012 9:35:28pm No.8 - Score: 1
A song made for Toast Beard ZIQ24. Not my best work, but it was fun, I got an entry in, and I still get time to write essays for school and audition for college.
