and sudenly Tenacious D pop up in my mind
Octavia is a musical bad-ass!
very nice. i love the song and the art. id like to see more
Octavia has always been a bad-ass, this is another video that proves this fact. Yee-haw!
I love that song.Good use of visuals at the beginning and end and the clips from the show for the "duel" part.
it took long enuf...even octavia and mightmare moon would have worked very well
That was awesome.
Dude, that's awesome!
You can't beat Octavia at strings. She is simply the best there is.
Awesome, just awesome... makes me happy to know I'm a violin player for some reason.
Wow, that is awesome.
I didn't think it possible to improve on the Devil Went Down to Equestria PMV. I am happy to be proven wrong. That was brilliant. ^_^
Well, I love it. Top 10 pony video for me. My only complaint is I would have liked more of your wonderful pencil drawings. Great work!
That was awesome. Loved smug Octavia's face
Suddenly! AWESOME! Out of buckin' nowhere! xD
That's the best thing I've seen this day.Go Tavi!
These always get removed after ahwile. Really good video, I like the song and the pictures are great. heres hoping this one stays.Besides, nopony has a chance against Octavia.
that is amazingall we need now is vinyl scratch n the stevie ommett version
So hawt. I love this song and the video is great!
Woah. Way to beat the crap out of My "Devil Went Down to Georgia" pmv. That was excellent, I loved the concept and the art! :D
-Waits for Octavia to post in this post, just because it's awesome-
Georgia is now Equestria. Gah, I'm so close. xDAwesome video though. Would have thought that during the fiddle solo it would have also included a scene of Octavia, from the show, actually playing. But it was still done well though.
Dat silly Discord... thinking he could beat me. Not a chance because I told you once you element of chaos, I'm the best that's ever been!
But Octavia is a bassist not a violinist! She shouldn't be able to play that song. But she does it anyway.BTW, wasn't there a violinist in that band?
yes, one of my favored song ^^
@sj14Octavia knows a small array of stringed instruments. ;)
-2 posts later, Octavia posts-Heck yes!
Now, I want to see a "Through the Fire and the Flames" PMV in this style for the fanfic "Through the Eyes of Another Pony". And for everyone who read that fic, does that song make sense? It does, doesn't it?
@commancheIt's not the same thing but here's some music for that fanfic.
@-K Project-This is just a tribute... ; )
Now we just need a sitcom like "Everyone loves Raymond" and replace it with Ponies. Behold!Everyone loves Octavia. I'd watch it. :)
Discord went down to PonyvilleHe was looking for a soul to steal.He was on a bind, 'cuz he was way behindHe was willing to make a deal.When he came accross this young filly sawin' a violin and playin' it hot,And Discord jumped upon a window stump and said "girl let me tell you what.""I bet you didn't know it but I'm a violin player too,and if you care to take a dare I'll make a bet with you.Now you play a really nice violin but give the Chaos it's due,I bet a violin of gold against your soul cuz I think I'm better than you."The filly said "I'm Octavia, and it may be a sin,But I'll take your bet and you're gonna regretcuz' I'm the best that's ever been."Octavia you raise your bow and play your violin hard,'Cos hells broke loose in Ponyville and Discord deals the card.And if you win you get this violin made of gold,But you lose Discord gets your soooooooul~Discord opened his case and said "I'll start this show"And fire flew from his fingertips as he rosined up his bow.And he pulled his bow across his strings and it made an evil HISSThen a band of demons joined in and it sound something like this*Solo*When Discord finished, Octavia said: "Well you're pretty good my sir,But sit down in the chair right there and I'll show how it's done!"Fire on the mountain, run boys, run.The devil's in the house of the risin' sun.Chicken in the bread pan, pickin' out dough."Granny, does your dog bite?""No, child, no."*Solo*Discord bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat.He laid that gold violin on the ground at the filly's feat.Octavia said "Discord just come back if you ever wanna try again""I told you once you son of a gun I'm the best there's ever been!"And she plaid Fire on the mountain, run boys, run.The devil's in the house of the risin' sun.Chicken in the bread pan, pickin' out dough."Granny, does your dog bite?""No, child, no."~~
Much better than I expected, Octavia is best pony! :D
So does she break her instrument every time she plays it too?
"Why si"Am I only the second person to notice yet another derp on the part of one of the blog authors?
I don't normally watch music videos, but when I do, I watch 'Tavi strumming strings.Stay classy, ponies.
This is precisely why Octavia is best pony. I loved every second of this video, beginning to end. If I could, I'd love to add some of those Octavia pictures to my pony folder.
discords' pouty face is 20% more funny when Octavia looks down on him like that.
I have to say, it's been good times recently for BG ponies. The only thing better than this for me is the Vinyl Scratch vid with her awesome voice and song. Sorry, 'Tavi, but you're #2 for me behind Scratch. At least until you get a likewise awesome fan voice.
Prelude to more country PMV's? Yes please! There are so many country songs that work.
Wasn't Octavia playing a fiddle on stage during the Nightmare Night festivities?This surprised me with how awesome it was!
Did Octavia just scam Discord?http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DidYouJustScamCthulhu
@HarwickYou're confusing 'Tavi with Second Fiddle.
@Pinkie PieOh boy, not -this- again...
@OctaviaAt least they don't think we're sisters anymore.
@Pinkie PieThank goodness that fiasco seems over. lol
@Pinkie PieOh some still THINK you are.They just don't all voice it in the same location....In an unrelated note (no pun intended), OCTAVIA IS THE EMPRESS OF THE STRINGS. Woo!
That was awesome. Thanks for kicking Discord's ass Octavia!
nice animation but the song is ALL WRONG, this is the right song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9uk9IcoQ0w&ob=av2e
That was delightful! Must've been quite a lot of effort to draw all the pictures (which were great, ha ha, I love smug!Octavia!) The parts from the show fit in well--like the fiddle music was so evocative that it dredged up these visions of color and motion.
Alright, I'll give it a shot...
"If you lose the devil gets your soul" -- brushie brushie! Loved that part. :) Very good video; the original drawings did a fine job adapting the lyrics to the show's environment, and the clips chosen for the instrumental parts were spot-on.@FreefoxLove that video; it's on one of my DVDs of Canadian animation.
I honestly don't what I was expecting when I clicked play, but this sure wasn't it. Color me highly impressed. Well done, composer, well done!
That was amazing :D
Why the hell is this the censored version of the song?Also, on the "chicken in the breadpan, pickin' out dough" part, who else expected to see Scootaloo?
I love this song, but I've always thought it was too short.
Devil! We-Oh...I see what you did there.
The devil went to Equestria, he was lookin' for a soul to steal.He was in a bind cuz he was way behind and he was willing to make a deal.When he came across this filly spinnin' her tables and droppin' the beatThe devil jumped into the DJ booth and said, "That mix is pretty sweet!"I bet you didn't know it, but I've played a rave or two,"And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you."Now you spin a pretty good record, girl, but I'm the best DJ around,"I'll bet a record of gold against your soul that mine's the sickest sound."The mare said: "My name's Pon3. You see this on my flank?"This mark here means I rock this scene, and I'll take that to the bank."The Devil put his headphones on and said, "I'm gonna win."And fire flew from his turntables as he gave 'em both a spinHe twisted both the records and they gave an evil shriekAnd the ponies started dancing cuz the devil's skills weren't weak.When the devil finished, Vinyl said, "As a warm-up you're okay,"But get down on the dance floor and I'll really start this rave!"
So this is a song 'bout Paganini then?
I was expecting Lyra but Octavia can work too.
That was awesome. Do the metal version of this song and I can die a happy pony.
Finally a country song for us pony fans!
"I told you once you son of a gun I'm the best there's ever been!"Son of a gun? Pah! That's not how I learned it!
There is not enough awesome and win in the WORLD for this PMV.
The art was enjoyable. Excellent video.
Still prefer this version of the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlaicBjFfVc
:: takes a moment them pushes his jaw closed.:: that is the best PMV i have seen so far. which is a tough set up with the others running around. Very well done.
This is one of my fav songs ever and to see it put to ponys just makes it ten times better.
And why in the world was the music in mono?
this wins for the simple presence of brushie brushie
Pure genius. Now I'm waiting for someone to be able to play "Johnny's" part on the cello, as weird as that's going to sound. Also for someone to take all the fan pics of the pony with the alcohol problem (Berry?) and set them up with the song "Red Wine". Make it happen internet!
Really good, loved the expressions on the characters faces. I especially liked how live footage from the show was used during the instrumental parts. Very creative! The only part I was a little iffy on was the "Devil went down to Georgia" and the "Young man sawin' on a fiddle." Georgia doesn't exist in Equestria and Octy is hardly a "young man." But hey, it's not like you can change the song, so it's no biggy.@EquinenoxYeah, that's the public-friendly version. I learned it the other way too.
This was an EPIC video.My only complaint: Why didn't they use the album cut version of the song? :C
Oh man, Octavia knows this PMV deserved its own post.
Okay, the next Guitar Hero, or Rock Band, needs a double bass in it. That still handles exactly the same as a guitar, but just for badassery.
@EquinenoxThat's exactly what I was thinking...still pretty awesome though.
Discord bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat,and he laid that golden chello down before Octavia's feet.Octavia said "Discord come back if you ever want to try again.I told you once you son of a bitch I'm the best there's ever been!"
@Pedro B.Thanks for lyrics!And who want try to beat Octavia?
Well done!-Moonlight Ballad, Bard of Equestria
FAROUT!That was a joy.
