Hello & welcome back to Trotting Through Life. Â Last week, Hasbro on April Â 1st Â released three previously unreleased Rainbow Rocks song and today, I want to look at them. Â Going from my favorite to least favorite.
My Past Is Not Today
I think this was bound to be my favorite Â for quite a few reasons. Â A. Sunset Shimmer is Â one of my favorite redeemed characters. Â And I’ve wanted her to get her own song for some time now. Â Sure, she Â sang in “Welcome To The Show” but here Sunset finally gets a solo and it is…
I just love everything about this number and Â after listening to it, I do wish that it was in Rainbow Rocks. It could have easily been fit in after the hallway scene where The Dazzlings taunt Â Sunset. Â While Â I will argue that “Welcome To The Show” did give Sunset, her moment of triumph. Â I feel like this was her moment of clarity.
I said it clarity, not Rarity. Â Her moment of realization that Â the support and friendship,she’s wanted has been there all along. Â And plus I just love the sound of this one. Â Â This is easily one of my favorite EQG songs and Â please please give this an ITunes release. Â Also after the mistreatment, Sunset got in the Holiday comic, it’s nice to see that the best EQG character getting some love.
Also, Â how cool does this look?
Again, this is just awesome. Â Â It’s Â also Â a nice contrast to the raging she demon (Sunset’s own words) that she was in the first movie.
Here as the song points Â out, Â she Â is making a change and rising from her ashes Â and this new set of wings symbolize her growth as a character.
Friendship Through The Ages
This one is a lot of fun in how, they found music stylings to fit the characters. Â Let’s see here. Â Flutters seems to have a Sound of Music Â style going on. Â Rarity Â is Â so clearly inspired by The Beatles and her outfit gives me strong Sgt. Pepper vibes. Â Pinkie Â seems to be ’80s. Â Pinkie Â is definitely ’80s but Â I don’t know but Â my brain keeps on thinking, she’s supposed to be ’80s Madonna.
The only ones I can’t really place are Twilight, Â Rainbow Dash, Â and Â AJ. Â Â I feel like Twilight is based on a particularmusician but I can’t tell which one. Â Â Dashie and AJ Â seem to just be generic rock and country however.
Oh, and that headshot Â of the girls in the dark gave me more than few Bohemian Rhapsody vibes.
This is one fun, if only to pick out the different music styles used throughout it. Â It’s Â a joy to listen to as well but this one works more visuals than the previous one.
Life Is a Runway
I don’t hate this one and I am always happy for more Lyra because Lyra is best background pony and I’m sure others were happy to see Â Derpy. Â But ewe, Â I was turned off by Â Derpy’s Â “Makeover”.
And also, Â I just really find the sound of this number annoying and that makes it hard to listen to. Even beyond that, Â this song disappoints me as a Rarity fan. Â Because while it does fit her passion for fashion. Â Out of all the Rarity songs, Â we’ve heard, this one just comes across as really shallow compared to every other song that she has had. Â Now as I said before, you need to take into account that this Rarity is not the same as this Rarity.
But even then, Â there’s Â something missing from this song Â that makes it truly memorable. Â Â Compare it to the other two songs Â that had great messages. Â My Past Is Not Today sends the message that people can change and Friendship Through The Ages say Â that Â while you Â may not always Â have the friends, you grew up with, you should cherish the friends, you have right now. Â What’s Â this about? Â Be confident in who you are. Which don’t get wrong is a fine message to deliver but Â I don’t care for the way, it was executed. I don’t know, maybe I’m being too harsh on this number. Â Again, it’s not bad but Â I do think Â it is the weakest Equestira Girls song to date.
There you have it, Â my look at the three previously unreleased Rainbow Rocks songs. Â Let me know in the comments, Â which one was your favorite.
