My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic!


There appears to be no general place to discuss it. So I'm making this thread.

Anime? No. But, as an animation, I suppose it would seem only proper to put one in place here.

I'll start: Season 2 begins in three weeks. And it's going to start off with another two parter... It's going to pretty much be the best.

So, without further ado...

SO YOU WANT TO GET INTO THE MUSIC?



So you've heard about this thing called fan music, and you hear it's pretty great, but you don't know where to start looking? What's that? You say there is just way too much damn music from the fandom now that it's just not worth looking for? HAVE NO FEAR! Today I will introduce you to the best pieces of music by some of the most known musicians, as well as a few from not so well known.

But what genre is it? Well, most of it is electronic, however, there are a few exceptions; metal, rock, even hip hop and country has emerged. Instead of talking about it, perhaps it would be best to just dive right in.

Key:

T: - Twilight-centric
F: - Fluttershy-centric
RD: - Rainbow Dash-centric
AJ: - Applejack-centric
PP: - Pinkie Pie-centric
R: - Rarity-centric
CMC: - CMC-centric
P: - Celestia, Luna, Cadance
BG: - Background Pony (Derpy, Doctor Whooves, Lyra, Bonbon, etc.)

Anything else is miscellaneous or features a group.




THE SHOW


Obviously the show is where most of the music stems from, and a good handful of that from the show's music itself, created by Daniel Ingram. While I'm not going to list all of the music from the show, due to a lot of it being short bits, I will list the long and key songs here in chronological order:









THE FANS


Here's a *COUGH* simple *COUGH* introduction to the fan music. Most of the songs here are the most popular and well known, but a few of these are a few of the more lesser known ones that are still good. Most have a download link attached.
