Gets better everytime I hear it.
'Backgroud'? Missing an n. Also, as far as I can tell, he redid the whole music.
Remixes come forth!
derpy is in the henhouse at 3:42. please tell me im not the only one who saw it.
@george you are not the only person who saw it.
I love this scene. Fluttershy seems so happy and in her element in this scene than any other I've scene in the entire series...
Best Song EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sweet. The music made for this show is awesome. That's why i have it playing in my car when i go somewhere. xDAnd I have begin wondering where Fluttershy got the seal from, and why it would be there at her cottage.
Looks like "May the Best Pet Win" is the official name of the song, so we should refer to it as that from now on.
Am I the only one who LOVED the face vectors during the song?
Now that we have the instrumental, all we need now is the acapella. Then we can roll in the remixes!
@Dubs RewatcherI liked them, they do grow on you a little.That said, I bet the animators are looking at that scene and thinking "That was good, but how can we make it better?"
@SgtGarandShe loves ALL animals no matter how far away they are. I was surprised at how excited Fluttershy was when Dashie said she wanted a pet. XD
Oh god... I can't even look at their overstretched faces... Didn't animators care even a little that their faces from profile (long) don't match at all their faces when looking at them directly from the front (flat)? Skulls from rubber? Even professional animators and artist point out the magnitude of this failure.But musical is a musical - it wouldn't be called a musical if it was supposed to be good :|@SgtGarand:This song is completely different from everything we were offered so far. I hope this was a one time mistake and we will be coming back to previous glory we are all used to.@Dubs Rewatcher:Unfortunately not... @Mattatatta:And they ended up overdoing it o)
@Dubs RewatcherI loved the expressions in the song too.
@georgeRofl. No you're not. Only every single person saw it yesterday when the episode was out and commented all over YouTube with it to the point where it just got so damn annoying to hear people talking about it.:|
This isn't the instrumental.This is redone by MandoPony completely. But very close and probably the only way to remove the sound effects and voices completely.
I'm on it.
@ScootaChicken The official name is Find A Pet according to Daniel Ingram's facebook page.
May the best cover win?
I've been calling it "Find a Pet", but I had already rendered the video with "May the Best Pet Win" for the title --- my bad!And, yeah, as a few ponies pointed out, I did totally recreate this song note for note :) so thanks for noticing! It wasn't very easy, haha!
@Maquarba: But musical is a musical - it wouldn't be called a musical if it was supposed to be good :|While i have no qualms with someone having a different taste on such issues, that statement is so fallacious, demeaning and sweeping it offends me. Honest hard work is wasted on you.Apologies to adding fuel to the fire, that really was the straw that broke the camel's back.
@MandoPonyAwesome work MandoPony! This song really is awesome. Also I don't know what you guys're talking about: the facial expressions are awesome. To me this whole thing was totally awesome. How many times have I used the word awesome? I don't even know!
The most off-beat, broken up, oddest song of the entire series.And it's the best one yet.
Now to annoy the hell out of Rainbowcrash88
@MaquabraCouple of questions, Maquabra:Re: Overstretched faces - this is like the fifth time we've seen a ridiculously cheesy Fluttershy grin. Why is this occasion so unforgivable?And At the Gala was way more of a Disney song for me than May the Best Pet Win, how is it totally different for you? It was an out of nowhere song with full choral and orchestral backing about being excited to go to a royal ball, and we all loved it.You're obviously entitled to your opinion, you can't tell someone they're supposed to like something when they don't or vice versa, I'm honestly curious is all.
I like musicals, and I liked the song. It's style is a little different from what we've gotten previously, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
@MartyAnd Eurobeat Brony
Is it wrong that I'm hoping for Yaplap to cover this?
I'm sorry, but when I compared this piece with the original piece - I immediately noticed some of the missing instruments that were critically part of the original song. I'm not sure if it supposed to be a recreation of the song, or an attempt to cut out the voices and leave the music in (which is a very hard task!).
^ Huh, it appears that MandoPony did actually recreate the tune of the song - didn't see the post there. This is pretty bad because some people might mistook it as an actual rip instead of a recreation if the people are not listening critically; which again is really bad.
Like something out of an old Disney classic. <3
I think remixer-bronies are gonna have an issue with the swung 8th note rhythm...Well those outside the genre of EBM and German Industrial Cyber Goth music anyway lol.
@MaquabraI can't understand why this being a musical peice automatically makes it inferior. Have you seen any musicals? There's enough fantastic PMV's of musicals out there to definately turn you onto the idea I think.Check out Avenue eQuestria, or Rainbow Dash is Gay (Or European)
@RyanCan you tell me which instruments I missed? I went to some pretty painstaking lengths to recreate the entire orchestra. The only instrument I know I left out in the end was the tubular bells, but I kept in the flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoon, trumpets, trombones, french horns, violins, violas, cellos, contrabasses, the harp, the xylophone, the timpani, and the crashing cymbals.What else did I forget? Just curious 'cause I'm always looking to improve....and someone would have to miss where I put the "Arranged by MandoPony" note in big letters on the screen in order to mistake this for the original.
I didn't consider the seal but I have been wondering about if tortoise's can walk on clouds? I hope so considering rainbow dash lives on/in a cloud. @SgtGarand
