Crashing a Pony Beach Party Riff Track 5/27/2012 11:55:50am No.1 - Score: 3
One day all the ponies you love were dancing when suddenly Tom came the fuck out of nowhere and crashed everything. The End.

Heat Neon5torm 5/30/2012 8:43:14pm No.5 - Score: 4
Style: Chill
This is what happens when Equestria has a heatwave. The calm before the inevitable storm. You know the feeling. Anything that requires any sort of work is almost impossible. You feel like a rock in the sun. Why not sit inside with a drink and forget about world for a bit while you

Appaloosan Summers DerpyGrooves+Jnez 5/31/2012 8:29:09pm No.8 - Score: 0
Appaloosan summers are cold and love dies

For no one from ponyville to canterlot will again know you

Plucking ticks to avoid lyme disease, sorting buffalo bones,

making pyramids and the harvest wasn’t at all good this year


Isn’t that a thing, darling,

isn’t that just the thing to bring us together

Dj Pon-3 Befriends CgEyeGuy - Fluttershy's Funk Train Dj Pon-3 6/1/2012 12:37:03am No.9 - Score: 9
CgEyeGuy's Train (and the phrase "that is so train") has kind of a cult status in the community so I thought a new remix of the track should be a journey of all things (and named) train, funky, and give it another spotlight. This is a dj mix with all loads of train tracks (pun!) and also a track remix so enjoy this summer ride. Trains + ponies + disco + funk = shenanigans!


Summer Sun Celebration Orchestral Flinckie 6/1/2012 11:24:13am No.10 - Score: 2
Summer!? Do you people know where I'm from? I can't work with that theme!

Oh, umm, I guess I can. Have an orchestral, everyone.

Futrtbro wattwelve remeex bai Dooby Dufcak 6/2/2012 7:56:23am No.11 - Score: 0
I can't music today. I'm so sorry.

Ponyville Summer ScootaLewis 6/2/2012 8:01:36am No.12 - Score: 2
It’s a ponyville Summer
And the pegasi are workin’
Keep the clouds at bay
And there’ll surely be no shirkin’
The sky’s gotta be bright
For all the ponies that are lurkin’...

And the ponies that have got
A whole lotta nothin’ to do!

A whole lotta joy
And a whole lotta sappiness
A whole lotta fun and a sackfulla happiness
And above all else,
There’s a whole lotta nothin’ to do!

The schools are comin’ out
And the holidays have started
A time of renewal
For the sad and broken-hearted
A time to move on
To the future uncharted

And a time when you could have
A whole lotta nothin’ to do!

A Whole lotta sun
And endless possibilities,
So many ways
To forge a new reality
But don’t forget,
There’s still a whole lotta nothin’ to do!

You miss me? Time To Party Hard! Nix_Spark 6/2/2012 10:03:38am No.14 - Score: 6

Vocals are by Riff Track!

(And yes, I did this to pretty much war with Celtik :P )


Summer (Cherax's Buck You, It's Winter Mix) (WIP) Cherax Destructor 6/2/2012 1:14:41pm No.15 - Score: 4
This actually started life about three weeks ago, but got put on the backburner due to a) uni work, and b) Balloon Party. I managed to produce a version I'm happy with for TB, but it's not 100% done. Only... 90%.

This is the most fun I've had with drums. Ever.

(Download available when it's actually done, and when CanterFlex Records sorts itself out.)

Cloudflash - Summer House natsukashi 6/2/2012 1:37:03pm No.16 - Score: 3
I'll miss you my dear laptop that I'll have to leave after this weekend. This WIP will mark either a breif or long hiatus in my music making, depending on when I can get a new computer!

Summer Sun Celebration 2012 (Before Dawn) Seventh Element 6/2/2012 1:39:56pm No.17 - Score: 4
Ok, toastbeard entry related to summer! Umm, only way I could relate this to ponies I guess is by that one celebration that Nightmare Moon ruins. Except I guess this takes place after that and just imagine DJ Pon-3 playing a set at this event. This particular song takes place before Celestia as brought out the sun. Or something. IDK, I'm not really sure if I like this track or not. Any feedback would be fantastic, positive or negative.

Downpour at Dusk Blind 6/2/2012 3:01:29pm No.18 - Score: 1
When most people hear the word "summer", they typically don't think of storm season. Apparently, I am not most people. This song tells the story of Twilight Sparkle spending a rainy July evening curled up near a window with a good book and a nice hot cup of tea.

This is a bit of a different style for me, so apologies if it sounds a bit... generic. Regardless, making this was both very fun and a massive pain in the ass for that very reason. Also, if anyone can think of a better name for this, that would be much appreciated.
