Themes ▼

Looking back on yourself and everything you've done, you can't help but notice that you've grown.
You've met new people and learned so many new things.

Write a song looking back on how you (or anypony, mane6 or background) has grown over time.

This week's theme is: Retrospection.

(implied and optional technical challenge: remix an old song that you've made using your new knowledge. It can be from last month or last decade.)

ALTERNATE THEME: make a song in response to any element from season 2 episode 21 (in the place of ERS21)


You have ONE WEEK to create ONE (original, remix, or whatever) in response to the theme.

Afraid To Get Your Wings Filthy? General Mumble 3/23/2012 2:50:22pm
No.13 - Score: 5
A super-quick dubstep remix of my first ever Toast Beard song, back in ZIQ03.

Will probably be worked on more in the future, structure wise.

For anyone who's heard my album CLOP, my friend told me that I should do a remix album of it. So I've started doing that now. If I finish it, this will no doubt appear on it.

Have a remix of nightmares and night mares!

Because I was too lazy to do anything this week :<

Cloudsdale House Memories '89-92 Mix (Draft Version) Mallard (As Various) 3/24/2012 4:18:43am No.19 - Score: 4
Hey fillies and foals! Old uncle mallard here to bust out one of his ancient mixtapes with the real sound of house for you new generation to learn a thing or two about what house really means!

Bringin' back the soulful funky sound of cloudsdale house, a genre that brought the best of hi-nrg disco, detrot techno and early trance into one neat cloud shaped package, this largely instrumental genre was what we were tearing up the clouds with back in my day!


Mallard - Missing Somepony
Detrot Pegasis - Calling Home
Cloud Control - Who Are You?
Mallard - Rhythmic Desire
Mailmare - Bubbly Feeling

Woaaahhh this was a lot of fun to work on. I made all the little bits over the week and smashed them together awkwardly in audacity at the end, before bouncing the whole mess onto a casette deck and back into audacity again. I will post this mix with all the kinks ironed out sometime later in the week on youtube, SO PLEASE FEEDBACK OF ANY SORT IS NEEDED TO SHARPEN THIS UP THANX

Chaosthasia SSH99 3/24/2012 1:12:41pm No.25 - Score: 4

The theme for this week is "Retrospection," so not only is this a legit Discord /Pinkie Pie song (which is something I wanted to do for a while and, retrospectively, Discord (Luna Mode) doesn't really count), it is also retrospection into the history of electronic music. This is the sound from 20 years ago of the oldschool rave scene, brought to you for the first time ever in pony form. This track is basically a huge homage to "Anasthasia" - T99, by the way, so check that shit out if you like this.

Oldskool Jungle. Side B of the split. Comments are superfluous. =w=

Vinyl's Bit House frkygp 3/21/2012 6:22:19pm No.5 - Score: 3
so this originally started out as a song i made a long time ago about vinyl scratch (because she is best pony). then i started to realize how horrible i was back then at pretty much everything. so i made some small tweaks, then some big tweaks, and ended up creating something that was pretty much completely different.

also soundcloud kinda messed up, and the actual thing sounds a lot better i promise.

Home (The Dragon's Quest) Plain Blue Beanie 3/23/2012 2:42:58am No.12 - Score: 3
My response to Dragon Quest, or, rather, the episode attempted to be replayed in an instrumental song in a little over four minutes. Poor little Spikey Wikey...

(The description below explains the song's structure.)
Sometimes we forget what we wanted when we begin a journey to find ourselves. We want independence... freedom... knowledge... We leave into equestria and discover what we wanted, but everything seems... wrong, like all the effort we expended was for naught, and everything appears to be against us... but then we realize: everything we had was all we ever wanted. The only problem is now: we're in a bind, a trap; we can't escape... We just want to go home.

Big Mac Breaks A Wall Of Sound For Love Pinkie Guy 3/24/2012 12:52:22am
No.15 - Score: 3
So, I haven't written a song for toastbeard in a while. I hope you all enjoy it despite it's total disregard for the theme.

This is how I imagine it would be feel to be stuck under that love potion that the cutie mark crusaders made.

100% Legit episode responce

The Beginning of Order Remake (Almost Complete) StormWolf 3/24/2012 4:10:05pm No.29 - Score: 3
I can't finish the outro in time... Oh well
I also need to get it properly mastered by HMage, as opposed to the currently dead-ears-because-6:30am-me, so sorry for the horrible mastering. My ears are so dead I cant tell what needs to be done eheheheh
Trance/dance inspired Eurobeat! Probably the track I am proudest of so far~

(I dont have the lyrics with me right now, sorry bout that)

Also, I will probably not attend the synclisten, seeing as its in 2 hours, and it's 6:30am here, and I have the biggest headache ever, no way I'm all-nightering. Which is disappointing because as I said, this is the track I'm proudest of, but oh well... I can read the logs I guess~

Anyway yeah, I really really hope you guys like this!

Dragonkind JackTHerbert & WolfOfSadness 3/24/2012 4:16:22pm No.31 - Score: 3
A collab between WolfOfSadness and myself, JackTHerbert. Episode Response in case you hadn't guessed.

I did a remix of this show song once and didn't quite like it and never posted it, but now I have a real version completed of it.

6 year circle sci 3/24/2012 5:55:01pm No.39 - Score: 3
a remix of the oldest (listenable) song I wrote.
6 years ago.
(My first song was basically an off-beat version crazybus. nothing that can be remixed.)

writing this invoked the strangest feeling of nostalgia.

treejetkey (VIP mix) Flutterbro 3/21/2012 6:56:12pm
No.6 - Score: 2
some breakbeat thing I did many months ago, one of the first songs I ever completed too. I believe it also started my trend of zalgo-fied pony cover arts.

Evdog brohoofs Glaze - "Pinkie's Issues" Evdog 3/24/2012 12:57:09am No.17 - Score: 2
I was listening to one of Glaze's old songs, "Pinkie's Lie", recently and realised how much one of my old songs, "Sound Issues", fit with it. So I made a mashup. 'Nuff said.

For those who haven't heard them, here's the original songs:
Glaze - "Pinkie's Lie":
Evdog - "Sound Issues":
