Themes ▼

This week's theme is: sleepytime.

What sounds does a pony hear as they drift to sleep?
Maybe a soft lullaby is in order, to help ease those restless minds.

Rainbow's Lullaby TalkAcanthi 7/11/2012 2:28:23pm No.11 - Score: 8
This song begins begins with the original lullaby that Dash's parents sang to help her fall asleep at night. The lullaby goes on to be repeated, but includes a small bits of information about an accident that resulted in the death of Rainbow Dash's mother, an event that still lingers with her.

Roid Rage's Slumber Psychedelic Brony 7/13/2012 7:21:53pm No.26 - Score: 8
This is what Roid Rage hear's whenever he's sleeping. D'AAAAAAAAAAAAAW?

Make Some Time to Close Your Eyes (Applejack rap) AdamTh3Walker 7/14/2012 8:55:30pm No.49 - Score: 8
I wasn't sure what I was going to do until Thursday afternoon, but then I found this 70's reggae sample. I don't know if you'll like it, but I do.

Luna's Last Lullaby Seventh Element 7/12/2012 2:29:26pm No.14 - Score: 6
I literally spent 45 minutes on this, so don't expect much. This is pure lazy right here. Abrupt ends ftw.

Sleep of a pony in deep space HMage 7/12/2012 6:35:17pm No.17 - Score: 5
Ponies are not supposed to dream in cryogenic sleep. Their brain is essentially shut down for centuries.

But the poor filly never stops dreaming of the day she landed on that terrible and wasted planet..

She's on her way back homeworld, hopefully there's something left of it by then..


I won't be able to interact with you during synclisten, I'd love to see your reactions to this. But it'll be 05:00 in the night for me, right when I'll be.. asleep..

If you recognise the inspiration, I owe you a muffin IRL.

Lullaby for a little filey Kingsleyrulz 7/13/2012 2:52:14pm No.21 - Score: 5
... I sung. and yes I know i'm not very good at it

close your eyes
rest your head
softly sleep
in your bed

quite now
not a peep
fall into
a restful sleep

close those eyes
hear the sea
slumber now
my little pony

Wonders of Dreamland Mush 7/14/2012 10:10:17am No.32 - Score: 5
This is my first (and hopefully not last) entry into Toastbeard.

I am well aware this will probably be outclassed at every level but... what the hay, I enjoyed making it.

There should have been lyrics for this, but I couldn't for the life of me write anything good.

(I needed to post this again as the embed screwed up)

Mornin i Wake Up Versal 7/7/2012 10:08:18pm No.1 - Score: 4

Golden Horizon Ft.Evdog Resonantwaves 7/9/2012 5:22:42am No.3 - Score: 4
A collab I did with Evdog :)
Thanks Evdog for Mastering the song
and singing :)


We sailed on the golden horizon
We flew high over mountain and sea
We braved the worst of the warfare
To preserve our right to be free.
Our ships engaged in combat.
We readied our cannons and swords
We came to do what we trained for
And defeat the enemy hordes.

We battled for what seemed like hours
To defend the ground over the mire
But the enemy breached our defences
Our vessel engulfed in fire
There wasn't a soul that escaped that day.
There was nowhere we could have run to.
We stood our ground as we hurtled down.
For We knew there was nothing we could do.

You're Being Watched Reakkor 7/12/2012 6:18:23pm No.16 - Score: 4
What if they can't get to sleep?
Pretty much inspired by Stalkerloo.

There you are, feeling safe, tucked up in bed,
When somewhere in your house you hear somepony tread,
You're sure you locked the windows, you sure you locked the door?
You sure you got some privacy anymore?
'cause The Friendship Patrol they be doing the rounds,
they're making sure that everypony stays within bounds,
I bet you all knew, 'cause the rumours are true,
you're all being watched by Stalkerloo.

So what choo gonna do when there's ponies at the door,
asking where you were on the night before?
'cause there's nowhere to run, nowhere to hide,
You don't know who is on the inside.
'cause they're all part of the oppressive regime,
one that's gone unchecked and reigns supreme,
Celestia's the head, and Twilight's the right,
And they're watching you every day and night.

(And can't lyric tag. Duh doy.)

Walk on Clouds Chuckles 7/12/2012 8:44:42pm No.18 - Score: 4
This was like the fourth song I ever made, but the FL file self-destructed for some reason, so this is as finished as it is going to get :P anyway, its a pretty good song about clouds, happiness and rainbooms.

"Troubles Dreamt Away" for Solo Flute and Harp Waves of Paradox 7/13/2012 4:49:12pm No.24 - Score: 4

Scootaloo's Flight Dream Blind 7/14/2012 4:52:40pm No.40 - Score: 4
Ever have a dream where you fly around and everything's just fuckin' rad? I imagine it's a little more exciting when you wake up knowing that one day you'll actually be able to do that.

The one week I'm presented the opportunity to make something calm without stretching the theme, I stretch it anyway to make something intense. I hope it didn't HAVE to be a lullaby :D It's my first real attempt at DnB, hope it doesn't suck.
