“Vinyl vs. Octavia" from the episode “Slice of Life" of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” (S05E09).

Wow. Just wow. I’m not sure what else I can say. This was one of the funniest and most entertaining episodes of anything I have ever seen. Sure, it was an over-the-top fan-pandering episode, but that’s what it’s supposed to be. They took that concept, cranked it up to 11, yet still gave it a heart and good moral. I don’t think there’s been an episode of MLP which kept me laughing for so long and so consistently. And all of the fan references, shoutouts, jabs (both at the show and the fans), and background characters were thrown into this story so wonderfully, it’s hard to no appreciate what M.A. Larson and crew were able to pull off.
On top of that, we got some fantastic score in this episode as well. From reprises of old themes, to some beautiful orchestral ones, to an absolutely jaw dropping cello / dubstep duet with Vinyl and Octavia. I could talk for days about this episode, and still want to watch it more — but for now, let’s get to the BGM!
And happy 100th episode MLP — I never thought this show would have gone this far, nor that I would be here now doing what I’m doing! What a great way to celebrate!
--Track Specific Comments--
Well this is technically not a song, I’m going to count it as one at least in terms of how my rips are organized. It’s the focus of the scene, isn’t behind dialogue, and is just a joy to listen to, and is almost 3 minutes long. Close enough for “song” status if you ask me.
This is something which has been hinted at before, but now we finally get to hear it in all it’s glory: a dubstep / cello duet between Vinyl and Octavia. And William Anderson, with help from cellist Tina Guo, did not disappoint!
We start out with Octavia playing some standard wedding songs on her Cello, before Vinyl steps in and attempts to spruce it up with some wubs. While not working at first, the both quickly find their groove, and give us one of the best and most unique things to come out of the series musically. And this isn’t just a quick come and done musical number, it goes on and on through an entire “chase” scene.
Daniel Ingram took on dubstep in the Rainbow Rocks shorts, and here Anderson succeeds at doing the same. Tina’s cello part is fantastic, and everything mixes so well. Much like the rest of the episode, there’s not much else for me to say — it left me speechless. It’s really great, and fun to listen to!
