Description
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.

Go West, Young Dragon Cherax Destructor 3/24/2012 11:50:44am No.24 - Score: 2
I have this scenario in my head that all my previous failed attempts to upload my song will have actually succeeded somehow and soon everyone's gonna be like "oh hey let's go check out the Toastbeard compofor some fun times and good music and oh my god who is this guy who's uploaded his song five increasingly irate times what a douchebag jeez" and I'll want to say "no wait it was a simple misunderstanding you see" but everyone is yelling too loud

So FL wouldn't export it after like AN HOUR OF TRYING so we'll see if this one works. Haven't even checked it. Just uploaded.




Bleak (REMIX'D) NewWorldMare 3/19/2012 8:35:01pm No.2 - Score: 1
I did this song a while back with a shitty microphone, when I couldn't have told a DAW from a doorknob. Look at how I've grown...

The sound quality on this is terrible. FL Studio is such a derp. (Not in terms of sound quality, that's Audacity's fault, but it's FL's fault I had to use Audacity in the first place.)

Mirror Peak Freak 3/20/2012 12:23:17pm
No.3 - Score: 1
A song I made, describing what has changed in the past 10 years inside me.

Lyrics:
I look back to the things I have done.
Memories of good times sweep through my mind.
I was young, full of hopes, and had fun,
but some things stayed unclear and wind.

All the things I achieved
created this person in the mirror.
All the things I worked on
are now part of me.

Now I see I was wrong so often,
made mistakes, stupid things that I regret.
You can blame it on my youth and call me dumb
but I learned from things and try not to forget.

All the bads I have done
created this person in the mirror.
All the things I learned from
are now part of me.

Are now part of me.

And I know that I can't change,
the past is left behind, and all gone.
And I don't want to change all the things made
they belong to me, and describe me.

I look back to the things I have done.
And I feel happiness, and I just smile.

Pinkie's Lie (Doofcake remix) Doofcake 3/22/2012 10:08:23am No.8 - Score: 1
I made a really bad WIP for a remix of Pinkie's Lie back when I first began learning to make music. I just pushed the project file away somewhere, but when I saw the theme for this TB I decided to make this track good.

The greatest there will ever be Maravex 3/24/2012 5:51:49pm No.38 - Score: 1
Expecting a sad, orchestral piece on how much somepony has grown?

TOO BAD. TRIXIE TIME!!

This is basically if Trixie trained and got the power to back up her boasting, and also to show that I'm not all orchestral.

Lyrics:

Ever since that fateful stay
she's been traveling and thinking on it day by day
Doubting what exactly went so wrong
Resolving that she's needs to be strong
She disappeared for months on end
Then returned to make amends
She showed her power and While at first unnerved
now she has Arrogance well deserved

She's a whole new being
Who can't help winning
Think the shows all over
its only the beginning
Nopony is there to question
Cus she blows your mind and ends the suspicion
It ain't boasting if you can back it up
Step up, slip up, you see the truth then kindly shut up
Think your'e somepony ? Please
She's almighty, the greatest there will ever be
X2

Great and powerful's as humble as she'll get
She'll give you an experience you'll never forget
Your not dealing with a regular show pony
She's the pinnacle and certainly no phoney
…To all those neigh sayers
… You think you can step up to a level like hers?!
She's not the same player from before
She'll top the top in time for the encore

She's a whole new being
Who can't help winning
Think the shows all over
its only the beginning
Nopony is there to question
Cus she blows your mind and ends the suspicion
It ain't boasting if you can back it up
Step up, slip up, you see the truth then kindly shut up
Think your'e somepony ? Please
She's almighty, the greatest there will ever be
X2

She looks back on that fateful day
how she was upstaged and sent on her way
She finds it amusing and she's it finds strange
If not for the doubters there would've been no change
Although she holds no grudges and is in fact thankful
Ponyvilles getting a second coming of the great and powerful

She's a whole new being
Who can't help winning
Think the shows all over
its only the beginning
Nopony is there to question
Cus she blows your mind and ends the suspicion
It ain't boasting if you can back it up
Step up, slip up, you see the truth then kindly shut up
Think your'e somepony ? Please
She's almighty, the greatest there will ever be
X2

The Melancholy of Spike BronyTuber 3/22/2012 9:36:44pm No.10 - Score: 0
Decided to go with the alternate theme since I'm really new and don't have much to look back on.

Tried to base this track on the fact Spike will never have a place among his fellow dragons.

First Toast Beard submission yay!




Reflection Ralm 3/23/2012 2:19:21am No.11 - Score: 0
I made this track as one of my first songs (Or something much much worse with the same progression :p)
I was listening through my old songs and thought... "This would be really awesome as Drum&Bass"

This is kinda a song with two meanings the first is how my style has changed (This song was a hard-style song when I first made it)
And also how so many people helped me improve. Looking back Id like to think I learned a great lesson, asking for help is the fastest way to success




Learning HatBrony 3/24/2012 7:41:54am No.21 - Score: 0
BOY DO I SUCK AT MAKING MUSIC OR WHAT? Also, I took a stem from an unreleased song and made it into something.
