"You'll Play Your Part" - My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

592 ratings | 75886 views
"You'll Play Your Part" from the episode "Twilight's Kingdom — Part 1" of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" (S04E25). (DOWNLOAD LINK BELOW). --Overall Comments-- This episode pretty much blew anything we've seen in the past from My Little Pony out of the water. From a very intense villain, to a twisting story, to being beautifully storyboarded and animated, to absolutely God-like songs and score, to an all-out DBZ-style fighting sequence. This season has been different in many ways, including it's overarching continuity. While the majority of the season had fairly individual and "slice of life" episodes, Meghan McCarthy and her team have managed to interweave an overarching plot into them, making almost seemingly unrelated episodes come together. It was fantastic watching all of the callbacks and references to events and characters from this season, and how those individual moments each contributed to something much larger. This episode had hands-down some of the best music of the series, both songs and score. Daniel Ingram only provides two songs for this two-parter, but they surely fill the void of 10 songs. From the princesses, including Luna (!!), singing a song which I can only describe as "Godlike", to the fantastic finale song, Ingram, Steffan Andrews, and their team absolutely nailed it. And we cannot forget the music which takes up the majority of the episode: William Anderson's superb score—some of his best work! I wasn't sure if he would top his score from the season 4 premiere , but he delivered and then some. Not only did he hit on all of the reoccurring themes throughout the season, but he "plussed" them so much it was amazing—Please see the episode's crowning-BGM "Friendship is the Key." I'll be sure to point out as many musical callbacks and meanings as I can in the tracks' descriptions below! Enjoy, and see you for Equestria Girls 2! --Track Specific Comments-- It has some stiff competition, but this song is climbing the ladders towards my favorite of the series. Celestia's Ballad probably still holds the title for "most beautiful" song, but this is certainly a close number 2. A lot of songs have a hook in the chorus to pull you in, but this entire song is a hook...I can't get it out of my head! We start out with some well-needed singing from Twilight as she explains how she feels. Complementing a great tune here is some fantastic acoustic guitar, quickly adding some strings and glockenspiel in the background. The song continues to build and add more instruments as Twilight sings, including more percussion, woodwinds, and choir. After the second verse, Celestia joins in, singing for the second time since last season's finale, and Nicole Oliver's voice is just as amazing as ever. The backing track here resemble's "Celestia's Ballad" from season 3's finale quite a bit. Next, the fandom explodes as Luna gets her first-ever singing part in the series, and who better to sing for her than Rarity's singing voice Kazumi Evans. Evans does a superb job here differentiating this singing from Rarity's, which is not easy. Cadance joins in, singing for the first time since "A Canterlot Wedding." The backing track builds adding the full orchestra in by the time we get to the chorus. And holy crap the chorus. These harmonies are simply God-like. The three singers here just nail it. The backing track perfectly adjusts, adding a moving yet upbeat rhythm to the song. And can I say that Britt McKillip's part in the second bridge is absolutely beautiful. I didn't think Ingram and Andrews could top the first chorus, but as we get to it for the second and final time, he manages to add so much emotion to it via a key change and some great brass. I won't lie—the final chorus made me tear up, it was that emotionally strong.

[Twilight Sparkle] It isn't that I'm ungrateful For all the things that I've earned, For all the journeys I have taken, All the lessons that I have learned But I wonder where I'm going now, What my role is meant to be I don't know how to travel To a future that I can't see I have my wings, I wear this crown I'm a princess, this is true But it's still unclear to me Just what I am meant to do I wanna have a purpose Wanna do all that I can I wanna make a contribution I want to be a part of the plan [Princess Celestia] Your destiny's uncertain And that's sometimes hard to take But it will become much clearer With every new choice you make [Princess Luna] Patience is never easy I understand wanting more I know how hard it is to wait To spread out your wings and soar [Princess Cadance] But you stand here for a reason You're gifted and you are strong That crown is upon your head because You belong [Princess Celestia, Luna, and Cadance] Know that your time is coming soon As the sun rises, so does the moon As love finds a place in every heart You are a princess; you'll play your part [Princess Luna] We understand you wanting more A chance to shine, a chance to soar [Princess Cadance] Soon will come the day it turns around [Princess Celestia, Luna, and Cadance] Know that your time is coming soon As the sun rises, so does the moon As love finds a place in every heart You are a princess; you'll play your part [Princess Celestia] You are a princess; you'll play your part

"Soon will come the day it turns around" Does that mean the Princesses don't like being princesses?

"And can I say that Britt McKillip's part in the second bridge is absolutely beautiful." You can, because I get teary-eyed almost every time I hear it.

If only the track was made in a way so that all the princesses are in their own section and we could hear cadance by herself.

Cadence is singing solo at 1:50
Joltikatt (4 years ago)
I get goosebumps every single time the chorus plays in this song. Cadance's voice is especially godly (favorite singer in the entire show!) and that CHORUS THO! Sorry, I think I mentioned that already? Also getting to hear Luna sing was awesome, though I will say she isn't incredibly the best one in the show. One of my favorite songs in the show. Thanks so much, Season 4!!!
liAnne Vera (4 years ago)
XD both luna and cadence ❤️❤️
liAnne Vera (4 years ago)
WTF!! LUNA IS BEST SINGER

Twilight's part at the beginning is meh, but once the other princesses come in; so good! The part at the key change especially sounds fantastic.  Having Celestia sing for the 1st time since MMC, Cadence for the 1st time since ACW, and Luna for the FIRST TIME, all together is a treat.
canadian comet fox (2 years ago)
know that your time is coming soon meanse her death? lol thats what that line reminds me of and cadence was think do we need a song luna: please make her stop celestia like :no let her sing
liAnne Vera (4 years ago)

I wasn't impressed with the mix of this song in the episode (vocals seemed too quiet, among other things) but this sounds great.
HazenWay (4 years ago)
This song is made of pure heaven. Even though Luna got her first singing role here, hearing Cadance sing again was the highlight for me, her voice is simply godly. Btw I think your FLAC download link is wrong, it leads to "Let The Rainbow Remind You" instead of this one.
The Legendary SwagMan (2 years ago)
+M Rayside AND her first solo (seriously, go check that out). Also, Luna's singing voice is the same as Rarity's (if you didn't know)
M Rayside (2 years ago)
+The Legendary SwagMan No, this was her first singing role.
The Legendary SwagMan (2 years ago)
+HazenWay Luna got her first solo here, not her first singing role.

Whoopsie!  Its fixed now. Thanks! :)

Hearing this makes me wonder why Nicole doesn't do her own singing on Littlest Pet Shop.  Those harmonies really were the best ones I've heard from a cartoon song since "The Ballad of Magellan" from Animaniacs and "Only Trying to Help" from Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel.
Dogman15 (4 years ago)
Which, again, can be summarized as director calls and actor wishes. That's why Kylee Epp sings for Zoe Trent, because she can be more "show-off-y" than Nicole when singing.
jasobres (4 years ago)
+Dogman15 Actually, I can understand why Tabitha wouldn't want to sing as Rarity or Luna. Those are difficult voices to make musical, so I can totally see why she would deflect those to Kazumi. Pepper, on the other hand, is an easier voice to make musical.
Dogman15 (4 years ago)
You could just as easily ask why Tabitha sings for Pepper Clark but not Princess Luna (or Rarity). It's all about casting and finding the perfect voice for a situation. Also, director calls and actor wishes.
Lori P (4 years ago)
Is it just me, or did we have to wait 2 whole minutes just to hear the "good part"?? Still thank you for sharing this. Probably one of my least favorite songs in the series (which is sad 'cause it has all the Princesses singing together!) but I still appreciate all that the staffers do for the show
Rokubi737 (4 years ago)
+Lori P hey, why so angry, it was a joke, dude. I even wrote "lol" in the end. See? To be serious, i mostly agree with you. A chorus is the only worth thing in this song. Oh, and Luna's solo.
Lori P (4 years ago)
+Rokubi737 maybe you need to get your ears checked :/
Rokubi737 (4 years ago)
2 minutes until the good part!? you must be kidding! wut's with your taste in music!?!? I think 1:20 is enough. lol.
Keystroke Brony (4 years ago)
'cause this song's not supposed to be just entertaining. :P If you actually listen to it, it addresses her concerns. It's just an emotionally charged conversation. If it was too much as a song, it'd take away the personal nature of its intended message. Why does every song have to be a 'number' to be respected by some people? lol
Lori P (4 years ago)
+IceDragon_X Really? It did seem a little generic, but at least it had a catchy hook. "Raise this Barn" and "You'll Play Your Part" are duking it out for my least favorite songs at the moment :x
ThePreciseClimber (4 years ago)
The build up, man. The build up. The way the song's getting better and better. Jesus... I should stop telling myself "They can't possibly top that". I said that when I heard "This day aria" and then again when I watched Magical Mystery Cure. I'm pretty sure if I say it again they will prove me wrong is season 5 or something. :P But they can't possibly beat "You'll Play Your Part", right? Right? One can only wonder...
Marstar (2 years ago)
nah i think the better one is "Luna's Future" sung by Aloma Steele
liAnne Vera (3 years ago)
Is season 5 the last season?
Quinson Hon (3 years ago)
Well I think there might be one! (*cough* *cough* Lena Hall *cough* *cough*)
MethamphetaMEMES (3 years ago)
+Ally CPPSme to be honest, I think that "in our town" is my favorite song in the series, along with winter wrap up and celestias ballad
liAnne Vera (4 years ago)
Ikr! XD im thinking, "is there going to be a better song in season 5 than this godly song?" I hope not xD
ChainChomp2 (4 years ago)
dat chorus Much obliged! Some music to listen to for the beginning of finals prep.
