This is the first song on an album that I'm working on, a little side-project called Griffin Village (remind you of anything?)
I'm going for a cheesy, corny, electropoppy sound (pop-corny?) as either an homage, a tribute, or a parody of one of my favorite bands, Owl City (His stuff is pretty damn catchy... it's like a guilty pleasure). This was also an entry to Sci's weekly contest. The theme of which was "Rainbows"!
The song is about a pegasus who's vacationing from Cloudsdale to come see Ponyville, but unfortunately gets his shit wrecked by a tree and breaks both of his wings. Nurse Redheart fixes him up as best as she can, but now that he's unable to fly back home, and all of the inns in Ponyville are full, he either sleeps on the street or he accepts the kind offer of Lyra and Bon-Bon to stay in their cottage.
I hope you all enjoy! Or at least try to!
Plucking strings and broken wings are the things that defined my Ponyville Summer When Nice Nurse Mare, from urgent care put my wings in slings oh gosh what a bummer (But I'll abscond) But you wouldn't care when you're in the care of (Where I'll have fun) When you're in the care of Lyra and Bon-Bon
I looked all day, for a place to stay But "No Vacancy" signs went on for miles They saw my cast, they didn't even ask they took me right in to stay for a while (But I don't mind) You wouldn't ask why when you were as desperate as I (Out of the sun) You don't ask why when it's Lyra and Bon-Bon
I watched them together while under the weather and couldn't believe my eyes two ponies like this who share every kiss like they'll share the rest of
their lives It made me blue and a little bit green that they were flushed red with love I'm too yellow to tell them that I'm leaving today under the orange sunset up above
Plucking strings and broken wings are the things that defined my Ponyville summer...
