Maressey - A Ponified Tribute to the music of The Smiths

Current events we're participating in.

Maressey - A Ponified Tribute to the music of The Smiths

Postby MorteMcAdaver » 16 Sep 2012 07:06

Hello There! It is Freewave here. I am reanimating Morte's opening post (and body i guess) in order to give a brief description of what this thread is and why it's here. Morte came up with the idea of Maressey in a skype chat; a bunch of ponified covers of rewritten The Smiths and Morrissey songs. It all began here over a year and a half ago. I quickly joined in and we began fleshing out the idea of this project. Playfully at first, seriously later.



Why would anyone start such a project, let alone start a full 2 page thread? Well The Smiths were not just an ordinary band, they were a very special one. The Smiths were really one of the most important bands of the 80's. They came out of the UK and really ushered in the indie pop movement, a departure from synth heavy pop, and had the best songwriting duo since Lennon and McCartney (or Plant and Page to be fair). They did things their own way and made songs that were incredibly relevent to their die hard fans. Songs about loneliness, depression, shyness, sexuality, and social issues. They did it with flair, passion, and a lot of wit. Even if the songs were sometimes sad they made you feel incredibly happy after hearing them, because someone else clearly knew how you felt. Their music spoke to and FOR people.

Image

It just so happens that the song subjects and lyrics of The Smiths really crossover WELL to the brony community. When these songs are ponified as we have already done they give interesting spins on both our characters but also on the brony community ourselves. We've tried to capture what we love about these songs and make them equally relevent to our community.

This thread and this project started mostly by accident, and Morte sadly has bowed out, but it does continue on and will be collaborative event album. Even if you aren't a Smiths fan, we hope that you will be when you hear these songs as there's relevence, poetry, and a real revoultion from the norm and from traditional pony EDM. Much like how people cosplay because they want to be the characters, this is an effort to channel what we love about the Smiths into something that's relevent to us and we do it back as a tribute to them as well. Very much like what the Beatle Bronies did for the Beatles but we're going to be tackling songs that likley many people haven't even heard before. We'd like this music to create a real impact to those who hear it and have an independent flair from what's been done so far in the community. Even if you're not a Smiths fan yet we're hoping that you will be by the time we're done. .

I will be looking for many vocalists and additional musicians for this project, so if you are interested don't be afraid to reach out to me. Unlike most event albums this is more an act of forming a cohesive and unified album and approach vs having everyone working autonymously. Think of it as being in part of a virtual collaborative band. After a year and half of dreaming, this project has a go ahead and will be a real album this summer (of 2014).

I've worked with a Smiths cover artist named Johnny Mare, who despite his name is not a brony, but he has done the music on over 10 songs for this project. That includes the guitar parts he's personally done, bass, drums, and even some orchestral elements, so they are just needing vocals. There's even more songs from their vast catalog to tackle if you 'd be interested helping to complete this eventual free album. We have midi files, song books, and tabs for guitarists for those particular tracks. There's also plenty of literature on how to get certain guitar effects and sounds on these tracks.

So if you can

1) play guitar, bass, or drums
2) if you have good sound libraries and expertise to turn a midi file into a realistic sounding band or orchestral backing,
3) if you are a good male and female vocalist

....your help is very much needed IF you are interested.

We're not looking for name recognition, we're looking for overlooked talent who'd like to be involved on an ambitious rock based project and can help pull it off. This really will be a group effort but you'll likely only be needed for a particular song or two or however much involvement you want to give.

It's taken a lot of work and planning to get this far and we're still only halfway there, but we've crested over that hill now. I hope you take a look at this thread, listen to some music, get interested in this project, and decide to take part. :)

You Just Haven't Earned it Yet, Brony (the EqD Rejection Letter Song)

If you’re wondering why
The recognition you long for eludes you
And the admins do not respond to you
I’ll tell you why
I’ll tell you why
I’ll tell you why
I’ll tell you why...

You just haven’t earned it yet, brony
You just haven’t earned your place
You just haven’t earned it yet, brony
You must master and mix for a longer time
You just haven’t earned it yet, brony
And I’m trolling you, now

If you’re wondering why
That all you sent to Equestria Daily
You have tried for so long, it’s all gone wrong
I’ll tell you why
I’ll tell you why
I’ll tell you why
I’ll tell you why...
But you’ve already blocked me

You just haven’t earned it yet, brony
You just haven’t earned your place
You just haven’t earned it yet, brony
You must practice and write for a longer time
You just haven’t earned it yet, brony
And I’m trolling you, now.

I’ll tell you why
I’ll tell you why...
Today I am remembering the time
When I sent my song, they mailed me back, and gave me a response that said:

“You just haven’t earned it yet, brony
You just haven’t earned it, my friend
You just haven’t earned it yet, brony
You must wait in the queue for a longer time
You just haven’t earned it yet, brony
And we’re denying you, now.”

You just haven’t earned it yet, brony...oh... (x2)

ok lemme try one

Bigmouth Strikes Again (Trixie's Song)

Twilight, Twilight I was only joking
when I said I was the greatest and
most powerful wizard you've ever met
Rarity, Rarity I was only joking
when I said by rights you likely
will always remain unwed
and now I know how Nightmare Moon felt
now I know how Nightmare Moon felt
as the flames rose from the elements
and her helmet started to melt
Bigmouth, bigmouth
bigmouth strikes again
and I've got no right to take my place
with the unicorn race
bigmouth, bigmouth
bigmouth strikes again
and I've got no right to take my place
with the unicorn race
and now I know how Nightmare Moon felt
now I know how Nightmare Moon felt
as the flames rose from the elements
and her helmet started to melt
Bigmouth, bigmouth
bigmouth strikes again
and I've got no right to take my place
with the unicorn race...

Bon Bon Take a Bow

Is it wrong to want to live on your own?
No, it's not wrong — but I must know
How can someone so young
Always seem to feel so bad?

Bon Bon take a, Bon Bon take a bow
Boot the grime of this world in the flank, dear
And don't go home tonight
Come out and find the Lyra you love and who loves you
The one that you love and who loves you

Is it wrong not to always be glad?
No, it's not wrong — but I must add
How can someone so young
Always look so mad?

Bon Bon take a, Bon Bon take a bow
Boot the grime of this world in the flank, dear
And don't go home tonight
Come out and find the Lyra you love and who loves you
The one that you love and who loves you

Take my hoof and off we stride
Oh, la la la la la-la-la-la
You're a mare and so am I
La la la la la-la-la-la
La la la-la-la-la
Take my hoof and off we stride
Oh, la la la la la-la-la-la
I'm a mare and who's got a thing for hands
La la la-la-la-la
La la la-la-la-la
Bon Bon take a, Bon Bon take a bow
La la la la la-la-la-la

Throw your bag of candy onto the fire
Come out and find the Lyra you love
Come out and find the one that you love

The Mare With The Thorn In Her Side (The Rarijack Song)

The mare with the thorn in her side
behind their hatred there lies
a murderous desire for love
how can they look into my eyes
and still they don't believe me
how can they hear me sing those words
and still they don't believe me
and if they don't believe me now
will they ever believe me?
and if they don't believe me now
will they ever believe me?

The mare with the thorn in her side
behind their hatred there lies
a plundering desire for love
how can your family see the love in our eyes
and still they don't believe us
and after all this time
they don't want to believe us
and if they don't believe us now
will they ever believe us?
and when you want to live
how do you start?
where will we go?
who do we need to know?

Braeburn It Was Really Nothing (the Braemac song)

The rain falls hard on a humdrum town
Appleloosa has dragged you down
oh, the rain falls hard on a humdrum town
this town has dragged you down
and everybody's got to live their life
and Celestia knows I've got to live mine
Celestia knows I've got to live mine
Braeburn, Braeburn it was really nothing
Braeburn, Braeburn it was really nothing
it's just your life.

How can you stay with a fat mare who'll say:
"Would you like to marry me
and if you like you can buy the ring"
she doesn't care about anything
would you like to marry me
and if you like you can buy the ring
I don't dream about anyone
except yourself
Braeburn, Braeburn it was really nothing
Braeburn, Braeburn.

How Soon is Now? (tale of a shy brony)

Celestia's the sun
Dash is the air
but I have a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
how can you say
I like the show in the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

Celestia's the sun
Dash is the air
but I have a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
how can you say
I like the show the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

There's a meetup, if you'd like to go
you could meet somebody who really loves you
so you go, and you stand on your own
and you leave on your own
and you go home, and you cry
and you feel like Fluttershy

When you say friendship's gonna happen now
well, when exactly do you mean?
see I've already waited too long
and all my hope is gone

You shut your mouth
how can you say
I like the show the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

Last Night I Dreamt That Somepony Loved Me (Scootaloo's Song)

Last night I dreamt
that somepony loved me
no hope — no mom
just another false alarm
Last night I dreamed
the wind rushing around me
no hope — no harm
just another false alarm
so, tell me how long
before the last one?
and tell me how long
before i get my mark?!!
this story is old — I KNOW
but it goes on
this story is old — I KNOW
but it goes on
it goes on and on...

This Charming Mare (Rarity's Song)

Crumbled wagon cart
On the outskirts of Canterlot
Will nature make a stallion of me yet?

And from this charming cart,
This charming mare

Why pamper life's complexities
when the linens run smooth
on the passenger seat?

I would go out tonight
but I haven't got a stitch to wear
This mare worked all day so
I might sport a suit with some flair

Ah!

A primped-up stable boy
who never knew his place
She said "please pose for me"
(she knows so much about these things)
(she knows so much about these things)

I would go out tonight
but I haven't got a stitch to wear
This mare said "It's gruesome
that somepony knows such despair"

(la, la la, la la, la la…)
This charming mare
This charming mare

Ah!

A primped-up stable boy
who never knew his place
She said "please pose for me"
(she knows so much about these things)
(she knows so much about these things)
(she also talks so MUCH about these things)

This is tons of fun. I wonder if I can get some instrumental-only tracks of these songs over which I can sing...

I decided to make this one about a headstrong male pegasus who focuses too heavily on competition and being the best of the best that he misses out on the rest of life's pleasures, realizing too late that he has worn himself out before he could truly enjoy his youth.


Spring-Winged Jim

Spring-Winged Jim winks an eye
He’ll do, he’ll never be “done-to.”
He takes on whoever flew through
Well, it’s the Cloudsdale thing to do.

Spring-Winged Jim lives to race
Now dashing like a mad bull
And his eyes on aspiring pegasi
So many mares - he should be ensnared
Ah, but no...

Spring-Winged Jim slurs the words :
"There's no need to be so slow
Take life at five times the average speed, like I do"

Until Jim feels the chill
"Oh, where did all the time go?"
Once always soaring for the thrill
Now it’s too cold...and he feels too old.

La, la, la, la-la, la...

Yes a lot of fun. I know there's that 10 track This Charming Man remix EP which SHOULD have an instrumental on it.

Oh found it!



I also have a LOAD of Smiths bootlegs and it looks like there are quite a few (such as the Asleep bootleg) so I'll see if i can find any in the my box of Smiths audio and video. Hopefully I can find some in there (with luck) or from a torrent. :D

If you want to do this as a joint thing that woudl be awesome. I can't sing but i can get the music, do some art, and do the pmv. :D

Looks like we COULD get help from JohnnyMare if you wanted to reach out to a non-brony with a brony name (LOL) who can do instrumentals. Some of the DRUMS are kinda tacky with the midi drum instrument portions as is. Not sure if we could take some of those out and get better substitutions in but otherwise rather good.

Ask (The Flutterdash Song)

Shyness is nice, and
Shyness can stop you
From doing all the things in life
You'd like to
Shyness is nice, and
Shyness can stop you
From doing all the things in life
You'd like to
So, if there's something you'd
like to try
If there's some place you'd
like to fly
ASK ME — I WON'T SAY "NO" — HOW COULD I?
Coyness is nice, and
Coyness can stop you
from saying all the things in
life you'd like to
So, if there's something you'd
like to try
If there's some place you'd
like to fly
ASK ME — I WON'T SAY "NO" — HOW COULD I?
Spending warm, Summer days outdoors
Speaking frightening verse
after a brief encounter with a minotaur
ASK ME, ASK ME, ASK ME
ASK ME, ASK ME, ASK ME
Because if it's not Love
Then it's the bond
It's the bond
That will bring us together
Nature is a language — can't you see?
English is a language — can't you read?
So ASK ME, ASK ME, ASK ME
ASK ME, ASK ME, ASK ME
Because if it's not Love
Then it's the bond
It's the bond
That will bring us together
Because if it's not Love
Then it's the bond
It's that pegasus pride
That will bring us together
So ASK ME, ASK ME, ASK ME
ASK ME, ASK ME, ASK ME

There is a Light That Never Goes Out

Take me there tonight
where there's music and there's ponies
who are real and alive
watching this tv show
I never never want to go home
because I haven't really got one
anymore

take me there tonight
because I want to see ponies and I
want to see life
watching this tv show
oh please don't turn it off
because Equestria is my home, it's their
home, and I'm just needing some more

and if Hasbro or the Hub
cancels it for us
to cry by your side
is such a heavenly way to die
and if Chrysalis
sucked the life from us
to die by your side
well the pleasure and the privilege is mine

take me there tonight
oh take me anywhere, over there, I don't care, I don't care
and in the darkened underpass
I thought Oh Celestia, my chance has come at last
(but then a strange fear gripped me and I
just wouldn't ask)

take me out tonight
oh take me anywhere, over there, I don't care, I don't care
just driving in your car
I never never want to go home
because I haven't really got one
I havent got one

and if Hasbro or the Hub
cancels it for us
to cry by your side
is such a heavenly way to die
and if Chrysalis
sucked the life from us
to die by your side
well the pleasure, the privilege is mine
There is a Light That Never Goes Out.....




Chaos Lovers of the World (The Villains Song)

Learn to love me
Assemble the ways
Now, today, tomorrow and always
My only weakness is a list of crimes
My only weakness is...well, never mind, never mind

Chaos Lovers of the World
Unite and take over
Chaos Lovers of the World
Taking over
Taking over
Taking over

Learn to love me
And Assemble the ways
Now, today, tomorrow and always
My only weakness is a list of crimes
last night we planned for a future war
to help me settle the score

Chaos Lovers of the World
Unite and take over
Chaos Lovers of the World
Taking over
Taking over
Taking over

A heartless hoof on my shoulder
The elements - and it's over
Alabaster and I crash down
(18 months is a long time)
I tried living in the real world
Instead of a shell
But I was bored before I even began
I was bored before I even began

Chaos Lovers of the World
Unite and take over
Chaos Lovers of the World
Unite and take over
Chaos Lovers of the World
Unite and take over
Chaos Lovers of the World
taking over

Dubstep invades ponyville and many ponies have just had their fill of it and are appalled. Applejack in particular says enough is enough and burns down the local dubstep discotech on her side of Ponyville. The revolution of music with substance invades equestria with dj's fleeing for their lives.

Panic (Hang The Dubstep Dj)

Panic on the streets of Los Pegasus
Panic on the streets of Canterlot
I wonder to myself

Could life ever be sane again
On the Ponyville side-streets that you slip down
I wonder to myself

Clouds may rise up to Cloudsadale
But Pinkie Pie, you're not safe here
So you run down
To the safety of your town

Because there's Panic on the streets of Fillydelphia
Baltimare, Trottingham, and Manehatten
I wonder to myself

Burn down the Disco
Hang the blessed DJ
Because the dubstep that they constantly play
IT SAYS NOTHING TO ME ABOUT MY LIFE
Hang your blessed D.J.'s
Because the music they constantly play

The Everfree Radio that you complain about
the Equestrian Daily you can't live without
HANG THE D.J., HANG THE D.J., HANG THE D.J....

Keeping them coming (although some songs i can't do anything with) some just write themselves. Morte I'd really like to see these songs become a reality if you're interested!! :twisted:

A funny take about rule 34 and the angst of being forever apart from your waifu

I Want The One I Can't Have (The R34 Song)

On the day that your mentality
decides to try
to catch up with your biology
come 'round

'Cause I want the one I can't have
and it's driving me mad
it's all over, all over, all over
my face

On the day that your mentality
catches up with your biology

I want the one I can't have
and it's driving me mad
it's all over, all over, all over
my face

A brony boy,
with a wealth of rule 34
these are the riches of the pervs

A brony boy
with a wealth of rule 34
these are the riches of the pervs

And I want the one I can't have
and it's driving me mad
it's all over, all over, all over
my face

A brony boy who collected rule 34
and he seemed to always be finding more
with a fedora and a goatee
and somehow that really impressed me
it's written all over my face

Oh, these are the riches of the pervs
these are the riches of the pervs

I want the one I can't have
and it's driving me mad
it's written all over my face

On the day that your mentality
catches up with your biology
And if you ever need self-validation
let me help you out with your frustration
it's all over your face








I'm not sure how many people have read the winningverse fimfics but Cloudkicker is the sex obessed polygamist and i'm adding her to my head cannon of Morrissey with this track. Taking a swing at the book read Blossomforth (and maybe Twi too)

Handsome Devil (Cloudkicker's Song)

All the streets are crammed with things
eager to be held
I know what hooves are for
and I'd like to help myself
you ask me the time
but I sense something more
and I would like to give you
what I think you're asking for

you handsome devil
you handsome devil
Let me get my hands
on your mammary glands
and let me get your head
on in the conjugal bed
I say, I say, I say

I crack the whip
and you skip
but you deserve it
you deserve it, deserve it, deserve it

A mare in the bush
is worth two in the hand
I think I can help you get through Luna's exams
Oh you handsome devil

And when we're in your library room
who will swallow whom?
when we're in your library room
who will swallow whom?
you handsome devil

There's more to life than books, you know
but not much more.
There's more to life than books, you know
but not much more
not much more
oh you handsome devil
oh you handsome devil

Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now (Coco Pommel's Song)

I was happy in the haze of a designing hour
but heaven knows I'm miserable now
I was looking for a job, and then I found a job
and heavens knows I'm miserable now

In my life
why do i give valuable time
to people who don't care if I live or I die

Two lovers entwined pass me by
and heavens knows I'm miserable now

I was looking for a job, and then I found a job
and heavens knows I'm miserable now

In my life
why do i give valuable time
to people who don't care if I live or I die

What she asked of me at the end of the day
Celestia would have blushed

"You've been in the studio too long" she said
as she naturally fled

In my life
why do I smile
at people who I'd much rather kick in the eye

I was happy in the haze of a designing hour
but heaven knows I'm miserable now

"You've been in the studio too long" she said
as she naturally fled

In my life
why do i give valuable time
to people who don't care if I live or I die

Ok so here is the Twiluna Arc. 4 songs about Twilight meeting her crush Luna in Canterlot, spending a romantic week with her, and then having to go their separate ways at the end.

The first Twiluna track (detatched from it being a true relationship and more 2 ships passing in the night with a spark of what may come later)

Well I Wonder (sung by Twilight)

Well I wonder
do you hear me when I sleep?
I horsely cry
Well I wonder
do you see me when we pass?
I half-die

Please keep me in mind
please keep me in mind

Gasping - but somehow still alive
this is the fierce last stand of all I am

Gasping - dying - but somehow still alive
this is the final stand of all I am

Please keep me in mind

Well I wonder
Well I wonder
Please keep me in mind
keep me in mind
keep me in mind



Twi and her crush Luna finally spend some alone time during their visit in Canterlot and the differences between the 2 become ever so much apparent. Twi the shy and uptight heavy thinker with a load of questions and Luna the more carefree spirit with way more life experience and living in the now. This is Luna's song to Twi asking her to let her deep and repressed thoughts go and enjoy life and physical delights for a change.

Stretch Out and Wait (Twiluna Song) (sung by Luna)

On the high-rise estates
What's at the back of your mind?
Oh the 3-day debate
On the high-rise estate
But what's at the back of your mind?
Your icy-cold hooves conducting the way
It's the windigo blood in your veins

Amid stone and clay
And general decay
Nature must still find a way
So ignore all the codes of the day
Let your juvenile impulses sway
This way and that way
This way and that way
God, how sex implores you
To let yourself lose yourself

Stretch out and wait
Stretch out and wait
Let your pony body lie down, lie down
As we lie, I say
As we lie, I say
Stretch out and stretch out and wait
Stretch out and wait
Let your pony body lie down, with me

As we lie, you say:
Will the world end in the day time?
(I really don't know )
Or will the world end in the night time?
(I really don't know)
And is there any point ever having children?
(I really don't know)
What I do know is that we're here and it's now

So stretch out and wait
Stretch out and wait
There is no debate, no debate, no debate
How can you consciously contemplate
When there's no debate, no debate
Stretch out and wait
Stretch out and wait
Stretch out and wait
wait, wait, wait, wait...



Reel Around the Fountain (TwilLuna Song) (sung by Twilight)

Twilight finally consummates with her long crush Luna despite there still being a sizeable maturity difference between the two. It's not everything she built it up to be in her mind but it's certainly a leap into adulthood and opens up entirely new thoughts and feelings. A frank tale of what happens between the two on the grounds in Canterlot.

It's time the tale were told
of how you took a child
and you made her old
it's time the tale were told
of how you took a child
and you made her old

Reel around the fountain
Lay me on the patio
I'll take it now

Fifteen minutes with you
well, I wouldn't say no
people said
that you were virtually dead
and they were so wrong!
fifteen minutes with you
I wouldn't say no
people said
that you were easily led
and they were half-right

It's time the tale were told
of how you took a child
and you made her old
it's time that the tale were told
of how you took a child
and you made her old

Reel around the fountain
Lay me on the patio
I'll take it now

Fifteen minutes with you
I wouldn't say no
people see so much worth in you
and i sure do
fifteen minutes with you
I wouldn't say no
people see so much worth in you
and i sure do
and i sure do

I dreamt about you last night
and I fell out of bed twice
you can pin and mount me
like a butterfly
but take me to the haven of your bed
was something that you never said
two lumps, please
you're the bee's knees
but so am I

Meet me at the fountain
lay me on the patio
I'll take it slow

Fifteen minutes with you
oh I wouldn't say no
people see so much worth in you
and i sure do



After the romantic week in Canterlot that's illustrated in the first 3 songs the couple must finally must go there seperate ways. Leading to Twilight being yet alone...again. Emotionally crushed this is her song as she asks Luna to sing her to sleep before she must depart in the morning.

Asleep (TwiLuna song)

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I'm tired and I
I want to go to bed

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
And then leave me alone
Don't try to wake me in the morning
Cause I will be gone

Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I really have to go

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I don't want to wake up
On my own anymore

Sing to me
Sing to me
I don't want to wake up
On my own anymore

Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I really have to go

There is another world
There is a better world
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be

A general spoof of brony musicians quitting their jobs to become professional brony musicians. An element of truth among the satire.

Frankly Mr. Shankly (The Brony Musician Song)

Frankly, Mr. Shankly, this position I've held
it pays my way, but it corrodes my soul
I want to leave, you will not miss me
I want to go down in pony music history

Frankly, Mr. Shankly, I'm a complete wreck
I've got 5 collaborators breathing down my neck
I must move fast, you understand me
I want to be featured in equestrian daily

Fame, Fame, fatal Fame
it can play hideous tricks on the brain
but still I'd rather be Famous
than talented or artsy, any day, any day, any day

but sometimes I'd feel more fulfilled
making benefit compilations for the mentally ill
I want to live and I want to love
I want to go to bronycon and do something I'm ashamed of

Frankly, Mr. Shankly, this position I've held
it pays my way, but it corrodes my soul
oh, I didn't realize that you drew ponies
I didn't realize you drew such awful ponies

Frankly, Mr. Shankly, since you ask
you are a flatulent pain in the flank
I do not mean to be so rude
but still, I must speak frankly, Mr. Shankly
Oh, give us yer money



A teenage Scootaloo is infatuated with Rainbow Dash wanting to spend every moment with her idol. Rainbow Dash is bored of her bland relationship with Fluttershy and appreciates the attention. The unbalanced and unhealthy relationship is a hardship most for Scootaloo. It's clear she cares so much more about Dash and is not old enough or ready for a companionship that she desperately wants and is not getting.

These Things Take Time (Scootaloo's song)

My eyes have seen your glory and yet have left me blind
we went to a place where I could confide..
you said "I know a place where we can go
where we are not known"
and then you gave me something that I won't forget too soon

but I can't believe that you'd ever care
and this is why you'll never care
cause these things take time
and I know that I'm
the most inept
that ever stepped

I'm spellbound, by what a mare can provide
but the hills are alive with celibate cries
you know where you came from, you know where
you're going, and you know where you belong
You said I was ill, and you were not wrong
but I can't believe that you'd ever care
and so I think, you never cared

but these things take time
and I know that I'm
the most inept
that ever stepped

Oh the blissed out afternoons
when we talked in your room
they meant more to me
than any,
than any single thing since birth
they had more worth
than any,
than any single thing since birth

humming chorus

vivid and in your prime
you will leave me behind
you will leave me behind



This in the ending song to album #2. Rainbow Dash leaves for Cloudsdale to finally join the Wonderbolts, abandoning Fluttershy, Scootaloo, and her friends to pursue her lifelong dream. Scootaloo in desperation chases after her but eventually finds herself housed in a charity hostel in Cloudsdale, a long way from where she intended to be.

Half a Pegasus (The Scootadash Song)

Call me crippled, call me frail
I've spent six years on your trail
Six long years
On your trail
Call me crippled, call me frail
I've spent six years on your trail
Six full years of my life chasing your tail
And if you have five seconds to spare
Then I'll tell you the story of my life:

Sixteen, clumsy and shy
I went to Cloudsdale and I
I booked myself in at the Y...M.C.A (YMCA = Young Mares Celestia Assocation.) ;)
I said: "I like it here - can I stay?
I like it here - can I stay?
And, do you have a vacancy
For a Crusader?

Sweetie was left behind, and sour
And she wrote to me on the hour equally dour
She said: "In the days when you were
hopelessly bored
I just liked you more..."

So And if you have five seconds to spare
Then I'll tell you the story of my life:
Sixteen, clumsy and shy
I went to Cloudsdale and I
I booked myself in at the Y...M.C.A
I said: "I like it here - can I stay?
I like it here - can I stay?
And do you have a vacancy
For a Crusader? ?"

Call me crippled, call me frail
I've spent too long on your trail
Far too long
Chasing your tail
And if you have five seconds to spare
Then I'll tell you the story of my life:

Sixteen, clumsy and shy
That's the story of my life
Sixteen, clumsy and shy
The story of my life
That's the story of my life
That's the story of my life
That's the story of my life

Yes this song is a sarcastic song. Luna falls into a coma and Celestia goes through the motions of concern, coming across as rather fake and reflecting on the difficult relationship she's had with her sister.

Luna In A Coma :D
Luna in a coma, I know
I know — it's serious
Luna in a coma, I know
I know — it's really serious

there were times when I
banished her to the moon
(but, you know, I would hate
anything to happen so soon)
NO, I DON'T WANT TO SEE HER

Do you really think
she'll pull through?
Do you really think
she'll pull through?

Luna in a coma, I know
I know — it's serious
Bye-bye-bye-bye-bye-bye baby goodbye

there were times when I could
have 'strangled' her
(but, you know, I would hate
anything to happen to her)
Ms Redheart, WOULD YOU PLEASE
LET ME SEE HER!

Do you really think
she'll pull through?
Do you really think
she'll pull through?
Let me whisper my last goodbyes

I know —It's Serious!

Hand in Glove (The Cosplay Song)

Hand in Glove
the tails trail from our behinds
No, it's not like any other love
this one is different because its ours

Hand in Glove
we can go wherever we can see
and everything depends upon
how well you cosplay with me

And if the people stare
then the people stare
I really know why and I really don't care

Hand in Glove
the Good People may laugh
yes, we may be dressed up and brightly clad
but we have something they'll never have

Hand in Glove
the tails trail from our behinds
we don't look like ordinary fans
but we have something they'll never have

And if the people stare
then the people stare
I really know why and I really don't care

So, Hand in Glove I stake my claim
Don't be afraid to cross-dress
If they dare touch a hair on your mane
I'll fight to the last breath

Love & tolerance is out there, somewhere
So stay on my arm, you little charmer

But I know my luck too well
yes, I know my luck too well
and I'll probably never see you at bronycon again
I'll probably never see you again
I'll probably never recognize you again



Frankly, Dashie is a bit bored with Ponyville. She has far too big a personality and ego for such a small town. With a town that she's growing out of where nothing ever changes and a relationship she now finds somewhat boring she's finding a pull to move on to bigger things and to let the past go.

Still Ill (Dash's Song)

I decree today that life is simply taking and not giving
Equestria is mine and it owes me a living
But ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
I know we cannot cling
to the old dreams anymore
no, we cannot cling to those dreams
does the body rule the mind
or does the mind rule the body?
I dunno...

By the iron bridge we kissed
and although I ended up with sore lips
it just isn't like
the old days anymore
no, it isn't like those days
am I still ill? .
am I still ill?

does the body rule the mind
or does the mind rule the body?
I dunno...

ask me why and I'll cry
ask me why and I'll cry
and if you must go back home tomorrow
well if I were you I wouldn't bother
for there are brighter sides to life
and I should know because I've seen them
but not very often

I'm tired of being ignored and dismissed
Their attention spans are short and so swift
it just isn't like
the old days anymore
no it isn't like those days
am I still ill?
am I still ill?

Oh gawd. So much to read!

Hey, if there's time, I can do one hell of a Morrissey voice/impression, and I'd love to pitch this as a performance thing for certain Brony conventions if they would have us!

My situation is this: I manage three projects, some more active than others, and this includes both live performances and recording. Thankfully, there's only one big album recording left to do in the near-ish future, plus a list of commissions that I need to do, so that frees up some time. Point being: I tend to be quite a busy brony, to say the least. This is not even to mention the various personal and family-related business that I'm managing at the time (nothing dire, mind you, just time-consuming, mainly).

With that being said, I'm absolutely up for doing a joint thing! To perform Maressey live would be a huge thrill, sporadic though the shows may have to be (at least on my end). I would prefer to be the lead vocalist, and I can also capably play bass or keyboards (simple parts) and sing. I'd also perform with backing tracks.

Another thing I can do is go through the lyrics you've written and tweak them so that the words' phrasing makes sense with the song. This is something I have already done with the lyric sets I've already posted, of course.
