The Irrational Affront: Discord

Twilight, the rain falls...
The rain falls
Drips of chocolate on your friends
And they all say:
"Where are the elements? aah, we've lost the elements"
But they should know
That harmony
Will not so easily be restored
‘cause it's fallen to...

Oh, fallen to ...
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Chaos for the ponies!
Chaos for the ponies!


Twilight, the winds blow
The winds blow ...
All of your hopes away
And you still say :
"where are my friends? Ah, I've lost my friends!"
But I should know
Why they’ve gone
Because again and again I’ve explained
They fell to the madness, to the madness, to the madness
Of Great Discord!

There's Equestria; you all live there
And now I live here with you
And I can show you the wonders of chaos!
So much to do!


But Twilight, we wonder
We wonder if the thunder
Is ever really gonna begin
Oh, begin, oh, begin
Celestia says: “where is my student?
"Ah, I’ve lost my student”
But she should know
Where you've gone
Because again and again you've explained
You've gone to stop the Irrational

The irrational
The irrational affront, Discord!
Because you want the fun to stop sooner
You want the fun to stop sooner
You want the fun to stop sooner
When you turn me to stone.
So irrational!

A bit of a mean-spirited Rarity song, or just any given fashionista in Canterlot!

Certain Ponies I Know

I make new shoes for certain ponies I know
I craft the shoes and then I hand it on to you

And when I swing my tail
So, it catches his eye
(ah, weren't you there?
- you'd have died!)


I speak reviews of certain ponies I know
I see their garments and I laugh my flank off

Their clothes are imitation
Mimicking lord Fancypants.
(doesn't he just enchant?)


I'd hate to be like certain ponies I know
They ruin their clothes and can't afford to get them fixed

Ah, and they'd sacrifice all
Of their dignity for
Ah, anything “fashionable”
I do believe ... it's terrible

Oh, and the song "Hold on to your Friends" needs almost no changes. :P

I'm wondering if I could pull off writing a meaningful ode to Luna based off of Alma Matters...

One more for tonight! Listening to Sunny, this one just came right to me.

Sunny Muffins (Dedicated to Derpy)

We’re really missing you, we’re really missing you...
And you’ve only just gone.
Oh well, you crashed and fell, and you felt embarassed
Our hearts go out to you
So we offered love, and it was not required
Oh, what else can we do?
What else can we do...?

We’re really missing you, we’re really missing you...
And you’ve only just gone.
So Derpy send at least one thoughtful letter
Our hearts go out to you
Tell us all how your muffins are so much better
Our hearts, they left with you
What else can we do?

Oh...and we forgive you...
Just don’t know what went wrong...
Oh, with your eyes askew like wayward stars
Our hearts go out to you
And to think they want to change who you are
Derpy, we cry when we see what they've done to you
We’re here and we won’t move.
We’re here and we won’t move.
We love you, Derpy Hooves.

Yeah let me see what we can do with this as I'd love to make a real recording (even if its an ep or an album if we can find someone to do the guitar bits) and of course to have you sing it if you got the personna and voice down. :) Feel free to tweak any lyrics, some of these came out faster than others. Hmm that last sentence reminds me of a certain song... :)

Rarity leaves AJ behind as was perhaps destined to, to be a fashion designer in Manehattan. She says she'll be back of course eventually and that they'll make the long distance relationship work...but is that really truthful?

Manehattan (Rarity's Song) fyi is a cover of "London"

Smoke
wraps 'round like satin
Train
Heaves on - to Manehattan
Do you think you've made
The right decision this time?

You left
Your tired family grieving
And you think they're sad because you're leaving
But didn't you see the Jealousy in the eyes
Of the ones who had to stay behind?

And do you think you've made
The right decision this time?

You left
Your girlfriend on the platform
With this really ragged notion that you'll return
But she knows
That when you go
You really go
And do you think you've made
The right decision this time?



I love the Derpy in the winningverse fimfics as she's this sweet but generous mother who's basically shat upon during most of the story but still is accepting and giving. She seems to be the one that unfortunate things happen to.

Unloveable (Derpy's Song)


I know I'm unloveable
You don't have to tell me
I don't have much in my life
But take it - it's yours
I don't have much in my life
But take it - it's yours

I know I'm unloveable
You don't have to tell me
Message received
Loud and clear
Loud and clear

I don't have much in my life
But take it - it's yours
I know I'm unloveable
You don't have to tell me
For, Message received
Loud and clear
Loud and clear
Message received
I don't have much in my life
But take it - it's yours

I am grey on the outside
Because grey is how I feel on the inside
I am grey on the outside
Because grey is how I feel on the inside
And if I seem a little strange
Well, that's because I am
And If I seem a little strange
Well That's because I am
But I know that you would like me
If only you could see me
If only you would could meet me

I don't have much in my life
But take it - it's yours
I don't have much in my life
But take it - it's yours

Oh snap. :)

Yes, I'll definitely get on this when I get the chance. Got a busy few weeks coming up, but hopefully I will have time to go through some while I'm at work.

A couple people pointed out that Pinkie has been especially cruel or thoughtless with her jokes to Fluttershy this season and causing her to fall into panic attacks. I thought why not have a song where Fluttershy pulls her aside and unloads on her (and makes Pinkie miserable as well in the process). Maybe a perfect metaphor for tumblr as well.

That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore (Flutterpie Song)

Come to the bar by the side of the road
you should know
time's tide will smother you
and maybe I will too

when you laugh about people who feel so
very lonely
their only desire is to die
well I'm afraid
it doesn't make me smile
I wish I could laugh

but that joke isn't funny anymore
it's too close to home
and it's too near the bone
it's too close to home
and it's too near the bone
more than you'll ever know

kick them when they fall down
kick them when they fall down
Why must you
kick them when they fall down
kick them when they fall down
Why must you
kick them when they fall down
kick them when they fall down
Why must you
kick them when they fall down
kick them when they fall down

It was dark as I drove the point home
and on cold sticky seats
well, it suddenly struck me
I just might die with a smile on my
face after all

I've seen this happen in other people's lives
and now it's happening in mine
(repeat)



Barbarism Begins at Home (Disapproving Brony Parents) likewise seems like a perfect song for subject matter of disapproving brony parents

First part of Pete the Changeling's 3 songs. Not everyone likes being part of a faceless horde.

Queen Chrysalis is Dead

Farewell to this land's cheerless marches
hemmed in like a solider of darkness
her very Lowness with her head in a sling
I'm truly sorry - but it sounds like a wonderful thing
I say Chrysalis, dont you ever crave
to appear on the front of the Ponville Confidential
dressed in your Mother's bridal veil?

And So, I checked all the registered historical facts
and I was shocked into shame to discover
how I'm the 18th pale descendent
of some old changeling queen or other

has the world changed, or have I changed?
has the world changed, or have I changed?
maybe that's the wrong question to ask me
You know i never feel natural even in my own form

And so, I broke into her Palace
with a shield and a rusty screwdriver
she said: "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
I said: "that's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

We can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry
and we can talk about precious things
but when you're stuck in your Mother's army
no one ever throws you a birthday party

We can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry *
and we can talk about precious things *
like love and death and poverty *
these are the things that kill me *

We can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry *
and we can talk about precious things *
but things go way south in Canterlot *
these are the things that truly kill me *

All the lies about conquering that mare are still there

Passed the Pub that who saps your body
and the state who'll snatch your money
the Queen is dead, boys
and it's so lonely on a limb

Pass the pub that wrecks your body
and the state - all they want is your money
the Queen is dead, boys
and it's so lonely on a limb

life is very long, when you're lonely
life is very long, when you're lonely
life is very long, when you're lonely
life is very long, when you're lonely



I think Pete (hey why not a regular name) the morbid Changeling needs a second song. It's not easy being part of a swarm where you thoughts and feeling fall by the wayside (or the seaside).

Nowhere Fast

I'd like to drop my trousers to the world
I am a bug of means (of slender means)
each household appliance
is like a new science when i come to your town
and if the day came when I felt a
natural emotion
I'd get such a shock I'd probably jump
in the ocean
and when a train goes by
it's such a sad sound
it's such a sad thing

I'd like to drop my trousers to the Queen
every sensible child will know what this means
the poor and the needy
are selfish and greedy on her terms
and if the day came when I felt a
natural emotion
I'd get such a shock I'd probably jump
in the ocean
and when a train goes by
it's such a sad sound
it's such a sad thing

And when I'm lying in my bed
I think about life
and I think about death
and neither one particularly appeals to me
and if the day came when I felt a
natural emotion
I'd get such a shock I'd probably lie
in the middle of the street and die
I'd lie down and die



Oh why not one more Pete the Changeling song. Changelings rule. So what happens if you fall in love with those who you are supposed to prey upon who don't necessarily feel the same way? Well i guess a cycle of deception, heartache, and loss. Oh the irony. Push on Pete.

A Rush And A Push And The Land Is Ours

HELLO
I am the ghost of Pete the Changeling
hung by his pretty black neck
some eighteen months ago
I travelled to a mystical time zone
and I missed my bed
and I soon came home

they said:
"there's too much caffeine
in your blood stream
and a lack of real spice
in your life"
I said:
"leave me alone
because I'm alright, man
just surprised to still
be on my own...."
Ooh, but don't mention love
I'd hate the strain of the pain again

a rush and a push and the land that
we stand on is ours
it has been before
so it shall be again
and ponies who are weaker than you and I
they take what they need from life
Ooh, but don't mention love
I'd hate the pain and the strain all over again

a rush and a push and the land that
we stand on is ours
it has been before
so why can't it be now?
and ponies who are weaker than you and I
they take what they want from life
Ooh, but don't mention love
no no - don't mention love!

a rush and a push and the land that
we stand on is ours
my youth may be gone
but you're still a young mare
so love me, love me, love me
so love me, love me, love me

Ooh, I think I'm in love
Ooh, I think I'm in love
Ooh, I think I'm in love
Urrgh, I think I'm in lerv

Anyone on MLR good enough at guitar or inclined to do Smiths covers for ponifed project????

Might as well do one if forgot to do

Is It Really So Strange? (Bad Bronycon Summer)

I left the North
I travelled East
I found a tiny horse
and I can't help the way I feel

Oh yes you can mock me
and you can troll me
and you can say it to my face
but you won't change the way I feel
'Cause I love ponies

And is it really so strange?
Is it really so strange?
Is it really so, really so strange?
I say NO, you say YES
(and you will change your mind!)

I left the South
I travelled West
Got confused and wore a fluffy tail
I can't help the way I feel

Oh yes you can buck me
and you can shake me
and you can break my spine
but you won't change the way I feel
'Cause I love ponies

And is it really so strange?
Oh is it really so strange?
Oh is it really so, really so strange?
I say NO, you say YES
(but you will change your mind!)

I left the North again
I travelled East again
and I got confused and wore a horn
I CAN'T HELP THE WAY I FEEL
I CAN'T HELP THE WAY I FEEL
I CAN'T HELP THE WAY I FEEL

(I lost my ticket in the mount's saddlebags)
Why is the last mile the hardest mile?
My throat was dry, with rainbows in my eyes
And I realised, I realised
That I could never
I could never, never go back home again (cause i ran out of money)[/size]

barely any changes needed. :D



You've Got Everything Now (Trixie's Song)

As merry as the days were long
I was right and you were wrong
Back when you were a social recluse
I should have won and you would lose

But you've got everything now
you've got everything now
and what a terrible mess I've made of my life
oh what a mess I've made of my life

No, I've never really had a job
because I've never wanted one
I've seen you smile
but I've never really heard you laugh
So who is rich and who is poor?
I cannot say...

You are your Celestia's chosen one
and you're a desperate one
But I don't want a lover
I just want to be seen in the back of the bar

A friendship sadly lost?
well, this is true
and yet, it's false
But Did I ever tell you, by the way
I never did like your face

But you've got everything now
you've got everything now
and what a terrible mess I've made of my life
oh what a mess I've made of my life

No, I've never really had a job
because I'm too coy
I've seen you smile
but I've never really heard you laugh
So who is rich and who is poor?
I cannot say...

You are Celestia's chosen one
and you're a desperate one
But I don't want a lover
I just want to be seen
in the back of the bar
in the back of the bar
in the back of the bar
in the back of the bar

Some Mares are Bigger than Others

From the first season to the third one
there is but one concern
and I have just discovered:
some mares are bigger than others
some mares are bigger than others
some mares mothers are bigger than
other mares mothers
some mares are bigger than others
some mares are bigger than others
some mares mothers are bigger than
other mares mothers

As Luna said to Celestia
as she opened a crate of cider:
"Oooh, I say"
some mares are bigger than others
some mares are bigger than others
some mares mothers are bigger than
other mares mothers
some mares are bigger than others
some mares are bigger than others
some mares mothers are bigger than
other mares mothers

Send me the track
the one that you drew up
send me the track
the one that you sang on
and I'll send you mine





The Headmaster Ritual (The Flutter Abuse Song)

Belligerent fools
run Cloudsdale schools
spineless swines
cemented minds
Sir leads the troops
jealous of youth
oh the hell he'll put you through
he does the military two-step
down the nape of my neck

I wanna go home
I don't want to stay
give up flying
as a bad mistake

mid-week on the playing fields
Bully thwacks you on the knees
knees you in the groin
elbow in the face
bruise as big as a dinner plate
I wanna go home
I don't want to wanna stay

Belligerent fools
run Cloudsdale schools
spineless mongrels all
Sir leads the troops
jealous of youth
oh the hell he'll put you through
he does the military two-step
down the nape of my neck

I wanna go home
I don't want to stay
give up flying
as a bad mistake

please excuse me from flight camp
I've got this terrible cramp
they grab me and devour
then they shove me in the showers
shove me in the showers
and they grab and devour
I wanna go home
I don't want to stay



I think this track works best as Dashie song. She's always banging herself up, making up stories of injuries, and getting stuck in bad situations.

Stop Me If You Thing You've Heard This One Before (Dashie's Song)
Stop me, stop me
stop me if you think that you've
heard this one before
stop me, stop me
stop me if you think that you've
heard this one before

nothing's changed
I still love you, oh I still love you
...only slightly, only slightly less than I used to
my love

I was delayed, I was way-laid
an emergency stop
I smelt the last ten seconds of life
I crashed down on the train car
and the pain was enough to make
a shy, yellow pony reflect
and plan a mass-murder

who said I'd lied to her?
who said I'd lied because I never, I never
who said I'd lied because I never

I was detained, I was restrained
he broke my spleen
he broke my knees
(and then he really laid lays into me)

Friday night in Out-patients
who said I'd lied to her?
who said I'd lied - because I never, I never
who said I'd lied - because I never

Oh And, so I drank one
or was it It became four
and when I fell on the floor...
...I drank more

stop me, stop me
stop me if you think that you've
heard this one before
stop me, stop me
stop me if you think that you've
heard this one before
nothing's changed
I still love you
I still love you
but only slightly, only slightly
less than I used to
my love

I've hardly had any time to dedicate, sadly. Any downtime I've had has been spent unwinding. Once I'm clear of my job duties at the end of the month and I've shaken this bad illness, I'll see what I can do. Honestly, I don't know many good musicians, let alone bronies who are also fans of Moz. I also have growing obligations with projects like Sorrowseed and Blacksoul Seraphim, so I really don't know how much I'll be able to add to this other than vocals and lyrical arrangement to fit the song phrasings.

Let me ask you a question Morte as there's different ways to go on something like this if we really try to make it a reality. We can go for the authentic feeling of trying to do the guitar, bass, drums (and we would have to find someone who could and WOULD do them) or we can really try to step away from that into taking it into a different genre (electronic music) IF we want or have to. Would that be heresey?

Since this really is two worlds colliding (Moz fans and Brony themes) I can always see if there's some people on Moz or Smiths forums (cover bands/aspiring musicians) out there that may want to handle the music as that's the biggest obstacle time-wise for both of us. I've always hoped that some other brony out there would see this thread and join in on our party but that has never happened. :(

Might want to change the title of the thread Morte to "Maressey, proposed tribute album?" and see if anyone want to join in (we can maybe move it to events if you really want to see if there's anyone interested).

A few traditional possibilities i can follow up on

http://www.youtube.com/user/johnnymare Didn't respond but i guess can pm ONE more time just in case. Again sounded GREAT minus some of the midi sounding drums.
http://www.youtube.com/user/davidguitarist91 (would need to re-record AWAY from the the bleeding of those original recordings) otherwise very good.
http://www.youtube.com/user/panta90andleo95/ one cover track, sounded good, no subscibers. seemed to quit a year ago. could see if he wants to give a wider catalog, and a new audience a try.
http://www.youtube.com/user/danielearwicker This guy is STUNNING but likely has enough followers to laught at the idea of a brony tribute album. Good thing is most of these tracks could be used as is. Good catalog of tunes. You could even try singing over them to see what a propsed song would sound like.
https://soundcloud.com/uncleskinny-vari ... ase-please Saw this guy posting VERY recently on Smiths forum. Got good feedback so may see if it's worth checking out. He is one of the prolific posters on that forum so he might have time to do more.
http://www.youtube.com/user/Gotglint Actual Smiths cover band that's performing live at a few places but doesn't seem to have any subs, studio posted stuff, or following yet. Possibility here as they sound great.

Found some tabs and more info at least

I'd prefer having the authentic instrumentation to the music. Not sure about making it into an album, especially given the cost of doing so, but it would be a blast to perform live.

Ok I sent a pm to Johnny Mare one more time in the hope that there's any chance he might be interested in this and didn't read the first pm or was confused by the proposal. I just can't shake the feeling he might be THE ONE. I know he was part of a Smiths cover band that went splits over the money making so i'd want to ensure him this would be a FREE venture and not some money making thing. He's still my first choice.

------

This works as a Fluttercord song. Fluttershy really was the one standing by Discord when he really hadn't changed at all during the 3rd season. So instead of him valuing that relationship its much more possible that he would take advantage of that friendship. Tricking her to do things she wouldn't normally do and how that could poison her other relationships. IE don't be a friend with an a$$hoel.

What Difference Does It Make?

All mares have secrets and here is mine
so let it be known
we have been through hell and high tide,
I can surely rely on you?
and yet you start to recoil
heavy words are so lightly thrown
but I'd leap in front of an angry crowd for you

So, what difference does it make?
so, what difference does it make?
it makes none
and you have gone
and you must be feeling very smug tonight

Oh Discord will find work for idle hoves to do
I stole and I lied, and why?
because he asked me to!
but now he makes me feel so ashamed
because I've only got two hooves
well, I'll still fond of you

So, what difference does it make?
so, what difference does it make?
it makes none
now you have gone
and your nastiness won't keep you warm tonight

Oh Discord will find work for idle hooves to do
I stole and then I lied just because he asked me to
but now you know the truth about me
you all won't see me anymore
well, I'm still fond of you

So, no more apologies
no more apologies
I'm too tired
I'm too sick and tired
and I'm feeling very sick and ill today

But I'm still fond of you



I know I love meat and i know people often scoff at vegetarians but really they are one of the few people who look at the morally bleak and grey act of eating what are helpless anaimals. If we met equestrians this would really be the the thing that makes us look like monsters in their eyes. I know moz is an outspoken vegetarian and i have to give him credit for sticking to his principals while those us would rather shy away from talking about it.

Meat is Murder

Filly whines could be human cries
closer comes the screaming knife
this beautiful creature must die
this beautiful creature must die
a death for no reason
and death for reason is MURDER
and the flesh you so fancifully fry
is not succulent, tasty or nice kind
it's death for no reason
and death for no reason is MURDER
and the calf that you carve with a smile
is MURDER
and the turkey you festively slice
is MURDER
do you know how animals die?
kitchen aromas aren't very homely
it's not "comforting", "cheery" or kind
it's sizzling blood and the unholy stench
of MURDER
it's not "natural," "normal" or kind
the flesh you so fancifully fry
the meat in your mouth
as you savour the flavour
of MURDER
NO, NO, NO, IT'S MURDER
NO, NO, NO, IT'S MURDER
and who hears when animals cry?

Omigosh Omigosh Omigosh!!

"Firstly, my sincerest apologies for not contacting you sooner. I did get your first request; however, I have had some personal difficulties for the past few months (you may or may not have noticed that I haven't uploaded a video for a year).

I will admit to finding the project a bit... surreal, but it certainly doesn't offend me - each to their own, I say! I like bands like Hayseed Dixie (they cover metal songs in a bluegrass/country style) so why not MLP?

I've got very restricted access to my original audio files at the moment (my computer is at my parents' home but I live away), and in all honesty, I don't know if I've kept most of the files, so my suggestion would be: if you're happy with the audio on the videos, feel free to rip it. If you can wait a few months, however, I'd be happy to send WAV files and I could even re-record the tracks - I read on your forum that there was an issue with the quality of the MIDI drums (which I totally agree with) and I could fix this now, as I'm using a half-decent drum plugin now (check out my later videos and see what you think). Also, the guitar and bass parts on my videos are done in one take (I don't cheat!), but as you don't need video, I could take a bit of time to build the sound up properly - my vids are for educational purposes, hence the 'one-take' idea. I'm in the process of upgrading my recording equipment but it will probably be a couple of months before I'm in the position to set it all up.

Oh, and finally, not-for-profit is fine with me - I'd never try and make money from someone else's work. Like I said, I only do my vids to help and (hopefully) inspire people.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Best wishes
Johnny Mare"
http://www.youtube.com/user/johnnymare

Morte tell me what you think should be the next step. I can try to match up the existing vids he has with our written out versions and see how much material that gives us (tomorrow or next day). I could rip from the videos OR we can expect that this come to fruition MAYBE in a few months when he has a better setup. Either way that does give you a chance to get vocal takes to his originals whenever you have the time. I know you wanted the live version of this but it just doesn't match the virtual band setup but a whole album w/youtube songs and appropriate art could showoff the project well.

Great, great news!!!

We could give that a try! One thing I was also thinking is me singing to the original Smiths / Morrissey tunes in question and getting WAV files of my takes. These can later be used as rehearsal reference for those that may be added to a live act. Since I would be recording my vocals to the original songs, and therefore using the original BPMs, further instrumentation can be added to kind of reverse-engineer an album from the vocals up with the actual songs as references.

That all being said, send over a few of the ripped audio files from this gentleman's channel and I'll see if they're workable!


*ADDENDUM*

Just checked out his tracks, and it looks like they're already pretty well prepared! Now if only he could also do the Morrissey solo tracks, too. :P

It's cider season and Big Mac has yet another awkward encounter with an eager Cheerilee. As is usual with most of the mares in Ponyville he is agressively (and on this night drunkenly) hit on despite the fact that he's actually only interested in the company of other stallions.

Pretty Mares Make Graves

Out by the stand, in full display
"There is a quick and easy way" you say
before you illustrate
I'd rather state:
"I'm not the stallion you think I am
I'm not the stallion you think I am "

I'm sorrow's native son
and I will not smile for just anyone

And pretty mares make graves

End of the night, in full display
you tug my leg and say: "Give in to lust,
give up to lust, oh heaven knows we'll
soon be dust..."

But I'm not the stallion you think I am
I'm not the stallion you think I am

I'm sorrow's native son
I will not rise for just anyone

And pretty mares make graves

I could have been wild and I could have been free
but Nature played this trick on me

She wants it Now
and she will not wait
but she's too rough
and I'm too delicate

Then by the booth
another stallion, takes her hoof
and a smile lights up her stupid face
and well, it would

I lost my faith in marehood (<-replace in some way if you find a better fix, missing a slylable now, kinda clumsy)
I lost my faith in marehood
I lost my faith



Ponyville Ruffians (Last Night of the Fair)
Takes place from Big Mac's pov from the MLP Comics 9,10 and is the third track from the Big Mac storyline

The last night of the fair
by the big wheel generator
a colt is stabbed
and his money is grabbed
and the air hangs heavy like a dulling wine

Rarity is charming
and she is funny
but a casual fling
won't mean a thing
next to a pretty mare
thats dressed all country

and though I walk home alone
though I walk home alone
but my faith in love is still devout

the last night of the fair
from a seat on a whirling waltzer
her tail ascends for a watching eye
it's a hideous trait (on her mother's side)
from a seat on a whirling waltzer
her tail ascends for a watching eye
it's a hideous trait (on her mother's side)

and though I walk home alone
though I walk home alone
but my faith in love is still devout

then someone falls in love
and someone's beaten up
someone's beaten up
and the senses being dulled are mine
and someone falls in love
and someone's beaten up
and the senses being dulled are mine

and though I walk home alone
though I walk home alone
but my faith in love is still devout

this is the last night of the fair
and the grease in the hair
of a headstruck wonderbolt
is all a tremulous heart requires
a school teacher is denied
she said: "How quickly would I die
if I jumped from the top of the parachutes?"

this is the last night of the fair
and the grease in the hair
of a lovestruck wonderbolt
is all a tremulous heart requires
a school teacher is denied
she said: "How quickly would I die
if I jumped from the top of the parachutes?"

so scratch my name on your leg with a fountain pen
(this means you really love me)
scratch my name on your leg with a fountain pen
(this means you really love me)

and though I walk home alone
I just might walk home alone
but my faith in love is still devout
I might walk home alone
but my faith in love is still devout
And I walk home alone
but my faith in love is still devout



This song is the ending track from album #4. It can spiral to a climax with the right guitarist or go a trip hop approach if someone want to make it more stripped down. We do have a bare instrumental to sing to currently.

The death of Berry Punch due to a self-inflicted alcoholic overdose reveals a sinister side to Ponyville. Is peace, love, and harmony just a mirage? Does your neighbor even know your name?

The Death of a Drunken Dancer (Berry Punch's Song)

The death of a drunken dancer (low octave)
well, it happens sometimes 'round here
and if you think happiness (high octave)
is a common goal
well, that goes to show
just how little you know

The death of a drunken dancer (low octave)
well, I'd rather not get involved
I never talk to my neighbour (high octave)
I'd just rather not get involved
--------
ahhhhhh
------
Love, peace and harmony? (low octave)
Love, peace and harmony?
Oh, very nice
very nice
very nice
very nice
...but maybe in the next world

Love, peace and harmony? (high octave)
Love, peace and harmony?
Oh, very nice
very nice
very nice
very nice, very nice, very nice
...but maybe in the next world, maybe in the next world, maybe in the next world

Love, peace and harmony?
Love, peace and harmony?
Oh, very nice
very nice
very nice
...but maybe in the next world
maybe.... in the next world

maybe in the next world
maybe in the next world

the death of a drunken dancer
the death of a drunken dancer
the death of a drunken dancer
the death of a drunken dancer

I also still have to go through the lyrics you wrote and make the phrasings make sense. I may also remove references to having intercourse with horses. :P

I don't have a Youtube ripper, so if you could take care of that, I would be most grateful. My email is connected to my own Dropbox, so I think you can share a folder that way.

Oh but that line (from "Is it really so strange" i take it?) is hilarious!! :lol: Ah well i agree to lyrical re-writes and smoother vocal delivery some of those rhymes could be clunkers w/o. If you do rewrite anything and want me to edit my posts just send me a pm and i'll edit them in this thread.

Shall try to get those ripped this week likely monday-wednesday-ish!

Buttons and Sweetie Belle hang out at his house. And absolutely nothing happens.

Colt afraid

Filly afraid
where do his intentions lay?
Or does he even have any?

She says:
"He never really looks at me
I give him every opportunity
in the room downstairs
he sat and stared
in the room downstairs
he sat and stared
I'll never make that mistake again!"

I'll never make that mistake again
I'll never make that mistake again


Colt afraid
prudence never pays

and everything she wants costs money

he says:
"But she doesn't even LIKE me!
and I know because she said so
in the room downstairs
she sat and stared
in the room downstairs
she sat and stared
I'll never make that mistake again!"
No!



Spike finally has had enough with waiting around for Rarity to return for Manehattan. No more carrying around luggage, trying on dresses, and investing in a doomed relationship. This is his farewall note and the beginning of getting on with his life.

I Won't Share You (Spike's Song)
I won't share you
I won't share you
with your drive
and the ambition
and the zeal that you feel
this is my time

as the note I wrote
was as she read, she said
"has the cider gone
straight to my head
or is life plainly sick and cruel, instead?
"YES!"
No-no-no-no-no-no
no-no-no-no-no-no


I won't share you
I won't share you
with the drive
and the dreams inside
this is my time

Life tends to come and go
well, that's OK
just as long as you know
Life tends to come and go
well, that's OK
just as long as you know
know know know know
know know know know know

I won't share you
I won't share you
with the drive
and the dreams inside
this is my time
this is my time

I want the freedom and I want the guile
I want the freedom and the guile
Life tends to come and go
As long as you know
know know know know
know know know know

I won't share you
I won't share you
I'll see you somewhere
I'll see you sometime...


A song from Applebloom and the CMC to Diamond Tiara. Just having a special day for a nemesis can take the wind out of anyone's sails.

Unhappy Birthday

I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday
I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday
because you're evil
and you lie
and if you should die
I may feel slightly sad
(but I won't cry)

No love is lost
and some may say
when usually its Nothing
surely you're happy
it should be this way?
I say "No, wanna kick my dog"
and with the hate that you ignite
I wish you very ill tonight

I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday
I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday
because you're evil
and you lie
and if you should die
I may feel slightly sad
(But I won't cry)

No love is lost
and some may say
when usually its Nothing
surely you're happy
it should be this way?
I said "No"
and then I sulked away
so laugh, eat, drink
and be ill tonight

from the ones you left behind
from the ones you left behind
from the ones you left behind
from the ones you left behind

Besides Maude I'm not sure I've sure we will see any traces of Pinkie's family and if it's miserable as she indicated she's likely not going back.

Back to the Old House (Pinkie's Song)

I would rather not go
back to the old house
I would rather not go
back to the old house

there's too many
bad memories too many memories there
Where we grew
here began all my dreams
the saddest place I've ever seen
and you never knew
how much I really loved you
because I never even told you
oh, and I meant to

Are you still there?
or have you moved away?
or have you moved away?

I would love to go
back to the old house
but I never will
I never will
I never will



The song above is also interpreted through Maude's eyes in the song below. Being Pinkie's sister she saw her come into her dreary world, brighten it, but then leave. In the end it was the best for Pinkie but it also left a lonely emptiness in Maude's life.

This Night Has Opened My Eyes

At a farm the colour of lead
emerged the baby's head
wrap her up in the hopes of the world
dump her on a doorstep, girl
this night has opened my eyes
and I will never smile again

You laugh and smiled like a silly child
a grown mare nearly twenty-five
she said she'd cure your ills
but she didn't and she never will
so, save your life
because you've only got one

The mare has gone
but her dreams were real
oh you did a good thing
she could have been a poet
or, she could be just a fool
oh you did a bad thing
and I'm not happy
and I'm not sad

A happless child on a swing
reminds you, you're on your own again
she took away your troubles
oh but then again
she left pain
so, please save your life
because you've only got one

The mare has gone
but her dreams were real
oh you did a good thing
she could have been a poet
or, she could be just a fool
oh you did a bad thing
and I'm not happy
and I'm not sad
and I'm not happy
and I'm not sad
and I'm not happy
and I'm not sad



I know Morte can't get to this for awhile still but wanted to update the thread as i talked to Johnny about what tracks he wanted to possibly re-record possibly now that he has access to his equiptment again and a better midi instrument setup. Had a listen and:

Definite keepers (sound great as is):
Bigmouth Strikes Again
The Boy With the Thorn in His Side
This Charming Man
What Difference Does it Make
Is it Really So Strange

Rather Good (I might want to layer some real drum on) but i think these may be workable as is:
Ask
Hand in Glove
I Want the One I Can't Have
Sheila Take a Bow

Ok, Sound a bit midi-esque on drums and bass (need possible re-recording, eq'ing, or adding on a layers of realer drums to make sound a bit better)
Frankly My Shankly
Girlfriend in a Coma
Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now
Still Ill
William it was Really Nothing

Probably Needs Re-recording to use
Panic
There is a Light and It Never Goes Out

I haven't tried tweaking some of the latter tracks yet but this is how they sound to my ears. Throwing that out there in case Johnny feel like fixing any in the meantime. :D

Also Tracks We'd Love to Have Recordings of:
Cemetery Gates and
Is It Really So Strange
You Just Haven't Earned it Yet Baby

Ok talked to Morte and this project is alive again with a new vocalist. Putting the Mare in Maressey and getting my friend Sylver to take over the vocals on this project. As Celestia as my witness i really want this to become a reality.

Berry Punch's death by the bottle shows that even places like Ponyville often have neighbor avoiding neighbor. Are humans and ponies really that different? Did anyone see the warning signs?

Death of a Drunken Dancer (Berry Punch's Song)

The death of a drunken dancer
well, it happens a lot ‘round here
and if you think Peace
is a common goal
well, that goes to show
just how little you know
The death of a drunken dancer
well, I’d rather not get involved
I never talk to my neighbour
I’d just rather not get involved

Love, peace and harmony?
Love, peace and harmony?
Oh, very nice
very nice
very nice
very nice
…but maybe in the next world
Love, peace and harmony?
Love, peace and harmony?
Oh, very nice
very nice
very nice
very nice, very nice
…but maybe in the next world
maybe in the next world
maybe in the next world
Love, peace and harmony?
Love, peace and harmony?
Oh, very nice
very nice
very nice
…but maybe in the next world
maybe in the next world
the next world
the next world
the death of a drunken dancer
the death of a drunken dancer
the death of a drunken dancer



After leaving Applejack and going to Manehattan to try to pursue her fashion career, Rarity is overcome by the difficulties of her life while assisting on the fashion designs for a doomed wedding party. Now desperately alone, struggling to succeed, and receiving a harsh letter from AJ, it's time for a well deserved pity party as life comes crashing down around her.

I Know It's Over (Rarity's Song)

Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
and as I climb into an empty bed
Oh well. Enough said.
I know it's over - still I cling
I don't know where else I can go
Over...

Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
see, the dogs want to enslave me
the dragon still wants to claim me
do you think you can help me?

Sad veiled bride, please be happy
handsome groom, give her room
loud, loutish lover, treat her kindly
(although she needs you
more than she loves you)

and I know it's over - still i cling
I don't know where else I can go
Over, over, over, it's over, it's over...
I know it's over
and it never really began
but in my heart it was so real
and you even wrote to me and said:

"If you're so charming (applejack letter)
then why are you on your own tonight?
and if you're so clever
then why are you on your own tonight?
if you're so very entertaining
then why are you on your own tonight
if you're so terribly very good-looking
then why do you sleep alone tonight?"

"i know because tonight is just like any other night
that's why you're on your own tonight
with your triumphs and your charms
while they are in each other's arms.."


It's so easy to laugh
it's so easy to hate
it takes strength to be gentle and kind
Over, over, over, over...
it's so easy to laugh
it's so easy to hate
it takes guts to be gentle and kind
Over, over...

love is Natural and Real
but not for you, my love
not tonight, my love
love is Natural and Real
but not for such as you and I, my love

Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head



Update (for self or anyone interested)

Sylver won't have a better pc and mic until June so she won't be able to do addiitonal vocals til then. Have her vocals for Bigmouth which may work (but were sung to an instrumental by the smiths vs Johnny's version which i'll use. Johnny has about 6 stem packs done and is working towards having at least 10 completed.

At this point i have stem packs for

Bigmouth
There is a Light
Ask
Sheila Take a Bow
Charming Man
something else....can't remember

I may end up opening up this project for other female vocalists and any other male vocalists who may fit the bill for particular songs. Likely will wait for a few months so i have time to focus on this during the summer while i get other projects and albums completed.

Ok here is the redesigned signup sheet and progress list. As the album has been split into 4 planned albums (free) and we have 20+ musicians joining in its often been a bit complex to see who's doing what and the progress of each track. Here's where it is at the end of February 2015.

Re: Maressey - The Ponified The Smiths Tribute

Postby Freewave » 03 Jul 2014 10:53

Ok I have kicked this into high gear this week. Here's a promo video for the project from the Maressey Ytube Channel.



I spent most of yesterday and today scouring the internet for the right images to fit the themes of each Maressey song I’d like to see happen. While many likely won’t see the light of day I think artwork still helps put the themes of each ponified song into how I’d like them to be explained. I consider each of these a square single s "album" cover for what would be made for the eventual youtube. I haven’t gotten all the art permissions requests complete but that’s underway as well. Glad to have this step done to have some unity in what the songs as presented will look like. You'll see these in the video as well.
