...and he has a really cool song to play every time he introduces himself!

this week's theme: write a song for the steampunk villian that's attacking ponyville.

or alternatively, any song that occurs during the hypothetical episode (from twilight hearing the initial news, to seeing the creature for the first time, or even the part where the mane 6 start kicking ass.)


You have ONE WEEK to create ONE (original, remix, or whatever) in response to the theme. Songs cannot be longer than 8 minutes. (Anything longer will be skipped and/or deleted.)

Shadow of a Flower Remix Flinckie 6/8/2012 7:23:54am No.10 - Score: 0
The definition of steampunk is apparently pretty vague, but I saw somewhere that anything inspired by the steam-era of Europe would fit. I hope I wasn't completely off genres.

The Mechanic ScootaLewis and Maxey 6/8/2012 6:18:14pm No.14 - Score: 4
The Mechanic is the self-proclaimed title of Tinker Toy, one of the lower class slummies of Canterlot. His family was once rich, but careless investments ruined them, leaving him with enough money to get an education. He learned mechanics, and poured himself into it, until he became unable to distinguish the gears in a machine from the ponies in society; to him, everything was a grand clockwork. And with the upper-class snobs laughing at him, wasting their money, their power, he decided that the machine...was broken.

I've looked upon the faces
Of so many different places
And every single one looks just the same
You insipid little ponies
In your world full of phonies,
Well I refuse to play your little game!

You're all just cogs in a broken machine!
Slaving away for the crankshaft queen!
I see the parts in the endless engine,
I am The Mechanic, and THIS IS THE MENDING!

To be a spanner in the gears,
To be the latest of the fears,
To fix things one must first assess the damage;
And oh, what damage I can see!
I know how hard this is gonna be,
But it won’t be any more than I can manage!

You're all just cogs in a broken machine!
Slaving away for the crankshaft queen!
I see the parts in the endless engine,
I am The Mechanic, and THIS IS THE MENDING!
You’re all just cogs in a broken machine!
Slaving away for a crankshaft queen!
I see the cracks in the tireless axles,
Now it’s time to STORM THE CASTLE!

The clockworks of society,
The mockeries of piety,
A broken world, but I am The Mechanic!
I know what must be done,
And I admit it will be fun,
And I guess the perfect time to panic.

You're all just cogs in a broken machine!
Slaving away for the crankshaft queen!
I see the parts in the endless engine,
I am The Mechanic, and THIS IS THE MENDING!
You're all just cogs in a broken machine!
Slaving away for the crankshaft queen!
Replacing the worn out rusted parts!
Destroying the dark and corroded hearts!

Now the mending is complete
And as I sit upon the seat
That is reserved for one who rules above the land,
No more a clockwork farce,
The rusted citizens are sparse,
The shining great utopia I planned!

(Props to Maxey who did the intrumental and the vocal chorus, and the mastering, and basically everything except write the lyrics and sing the verses)

Rap song about flim and flam? Okay.jpg

AKA Flim and Flam make a robot and kill everyone. Lyrics(I am so, so so so sorry):

Flam: Why hello brother Flim!
Flim: Why hello brother Flam!
Narrator: It's grand day for the brothers Flim and Flam.
Flam: Say brother, I've got an idea!
Flim: An Idea you say? What must that convey?
Flam: We shall build a machine!
Flim: A machine? Of what sort?
Flam: It will be a new invention.
Narrator: Flam duely retorts.
Flam: It shall be a rebuttal for all of our failures.
Flim: I like the sound of this, please brother tell me more!
Narrator: The brothers wisper quietly and crowd into their workshop
Little do they know what's about to unfold.
A mechanical monster, capable of great destruction.
Unleashed on a world with out mercy or a soul.

Narrator: The brothers worked harder and harder every night .
Fueled by the inevitable product of their spite.
Hatred and revenge were their ultimate goals,
and soon would they achieve this without needing to be told
Whether this was right or wrong, it didn't matter.
What mattered was, that the brothers would destroy the laughter.
Caused by their silly defeats, starting with the nearest town, Ponyville....

And Into The Mist Reakkor 6/9/2012 3:45:38pm No.16 - Score: 1
Well, my second ever orchestral piece I e'er done.
This piece would ideally be played when the mane 6 ready up and start to fight the big bad's evil minions, before getting swatted down by the big bad himself.

Gentlecog's Decree ancara22 6/9/2012 5:37:02pm No.18 - Score: 0
When a single Earth Colt named Steamworth, fed up with Celestia banishment of cogs and other such mechanical works in favor of Magic finally snaps, he brings a terrifying large robot to try to destroy her home......and when he arrives, he says this to Celestia herself...


Princess Celestia, you may not know who I am....
So let me explain myself to you.....

Steamworth is my name you silly lot.
I'll beat your gaurds real silly with my steam-powered bot.
It is huge and ready to steamroll Ponyville
and there is nothing you can do to keep it still.

I am a Gentlecolt who shall be a King to fear
and turn your subjects into slaves powered by the gear.
Give it your best try, my chap, for you shall not win
so you might as well throw your silly crown into the bin.

Now then, Miss Celestia, I am but a.....fair gentlecolt.
I shall give you but one chance to save yourself defeat.
Either surrender and let I become true ruler.....
Or else I shall unleash a wrath you wish had never come to pass.... still are resilient, even to the end, my dear?
Very well then, but you were given your chance......

Go my creation, use your power and might
and destroy this foul wench with all of your might!
Give her no chance to win, show her what you can do
and deposit her somewhere cold when you're through.

I shall head off to get that which shall be mine,
such precious gems with such power that is fine.
It was a pleasure doing business, but now I must go
while you deal with truly an unstoppable foe...~

((Voice Provided by Scootalewis, awesome dude he is.))

I haven't submitted anything for TB in like 3 weeks.

Observe My Intellect AdamTh3Walker 6/9/2012 5:54:56pm No.20 - Score: 4

I’ve been tinkering alone again
Seeing shapes of futures in the wind
I’m going to require your quill, my friend
You’re written in the sand

I have steam enough to start anew
I have a plan devised to make it through
You’re looking at me like you have no clue I
Don’t believe we’ve met

I’m Coalfire Steam what do you mean
I’ve helped you clean, move your machines
and not one single scene
I’ve got miles to go But you should know

I am doing this to make you mad
I wish I had a better plan than that
But it will all be worth it in the end
I will make sure of that

I have a destiny to overthrow
A history of being trod upon
My own obsession is that I belong
Observe my intellect
