[dubstep music]
[music stops]
Mrs. Cake: What can I get ya?
[music continues]
[school bell rings]
[music stops]
[music continues]


Guitar Centered

Rarity: Rainbow Dash, I simply don't understand why you can't just play the guitar you have.
[sproing]
Rarity: [gasps] Now I understand.
Pinkie Pie: How about this one?
Rainbow Dash: No.
Pinkie Pie: Lookie here!
Rainbow Dash: No.
Pinkie Pie: Super groovy!
Rainbow Dash: No, Pinkie.
Applejack: Well, whatcha looking for?
Rainbow Dash: That's the problem! I need something that looks as awesome as I'm gonna make it sound. [gasps] Hands off my guitar, Trixie!
Trixie Lulamoon: I touched it first, Rainbow Dash!
Applejack: Sounds to me like this is a makin' for a nice, friendly competition.
Rainbow Dash: All right! Let's see who plays best!
Trixie Lulamoon: A shred-off?
Rainbow Dash: Shred on.
[electric guitar battle]
Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, and Rarity: [cheering]
Rainbow Dash: Check me out! Uh, she can have it. Turns out this is the one that really speaks to me.
Trixie Lulamoon: The Great and Powerful Trixie always wins in the end! [laughs]
Rainbow Dash: I doubt it.
Trixie Lulamoon: Twelve-thousand dollars?! You'll pay for this, Rainbow Dash!
Pinkie Pie: No, silly! If you want it, you have to pay for it.


Hamstocalypse Now

[door creaks]
Fluttershy: Thanks for coming, Rarity. The rescue center needs all the help it can get.
Rarity: Oh, but of course, darling. Helping cute little puppies and kitties will never go out of style.
Fluttershy: Once a year, a lucky volunteer gets to clean the hamster habitat. I signed up for it months ago to be sure I'd get it. [singsongy] Housecleaning!
Rarity: Ooh. Uh, Fluttershy, darling, aren't hamsters, uh, rodents?
Fluttershy: They sure are. But they're cute and cuddly like bunnies. Okay, everyhamster, follow Rarity into the next room. She'll take good care of you while I give your home a nice scrub.
[pounding on the glass]
[door opens]
Fluttershy: Rarity, what happened?!
Rarity: Oh! Aah! Well, uh, Carl Pettington's coat just begged to be accessorized, but Emilia Furhart refused to be left out and got Curtis Pawpower to chew right through Carl's little scarf, and before I knew it, I had a habitat-wide feud on my hands! [beat] Also, I named them.
Fluttershy: Ladies and gentlehamsters, please! Now, I know you're all upset, but why don't we head back into the habitat and talk it over?
Carl Pettington: [smooches]
Emilia Furhart: [squeaks angrily]
Fluttershy and Rarity: [gasp]
Curtis Pawpower: [frightened squeak]
[tambourine jingles]
[door closes]
Rarity: Huh! I never would have guessed hamsters could be so touchy about fashion!


Pinkie on the One

Granny Smith: Just remember, the most important thing about sugar butter cocoa cookies is to fold your batter. Too much arm turnin'll make your cookies tougher than a lump of coal.
Rainbow Dash: Come on, Pinkie. You're s'posed to help me find a drummer for my band.
Pinkie Pie: I guess I could fold a little faster.
[pots and pans clattering]
Rainbow Dash: Most people don't know how hard it is to find someone who could use both hands the way a drummer does.
Pinkie Pie: I'll bet!
[splat!]
Granny Smith: Uh...
Pinkie Pie: [squee]
Rainbow Dash: [grunts]
Rainbow Dash: Now, it's important that our banner look awesome! So feel free to use as much glitter as you want. A drummer can't just be anybody.
Pinkie Pie: Oh, of course not. [tapping on the glitter jar]
Rainbow Dash: They need to have the right instincts, you know?
Pinkie Pie: Totally! [continues drumming]
Rainbow Dash: [coughs]
Rainbow Dash: It's gotta be someone with a lot of...
Pinkie Pie: [squirts strawberry syrup]
Rainbow Dash: ...energy.
Pinkie Pie: Absolutely! [stirs glass] [drums on lunch tray]
Rainbow Dash: I mean, a lot! Energy, enthusiasm...
[plates and trays clattering]
Applejack: Pinkie!
Pinkie Pie: [stops drumming] Whaaaaat?! [resumes drumming with silverware]
Rainbow Dash: They have to be able to carry the whole band on their shoulders!
Pinkie Pie: [still drumming with silverware]
Rainbow Dash: Ugh! Pinkie!
Rarity: We've got to find an outlet for all that energy!
Pinkie Pie: [wild, fast drumming]
Fluttershy: [exclaims]
Applejack: Whoa!
Rainbow Dash: Cool!
Pinkie Pie: [cymbals crash] [pants]
Rarity: Whatever made you think of Pinkie for the drums?
Rainbow Dash: I dunno. Guess I just have a sense for these things.
Pinkie Pie: [plays sting]


Player Piano

Rarity: [grunts, pants] Come on, Rarity! You simply must get this piano to band practice! [grunts and pants] What kind of person doesn't put a piano on wheels? [grunts, groans] Just look at me. I'm a mess. What I need is a bit more muscle. [to Rover, Fido, and Spot] Oh, boys!
Rarity: I simply cannot thank you enough. And while I am a bit repulsed by your musky smell, I can appreciate that you're all diamonds in the rough.
[students scream]
Rarity: Excuse me! Pardon me! Excuse me! Thank you!
Rover, Fido, and Spot: [panting]
Pinkie Pie: [drums]
Rainbow Dash: Ugh! Where is Rarity?!
Applejack: That gal probably just wants to make some sort of grand entrance.
Rarity: Tada!
Applejack: Told ya.
Rainbow Dash: Rarity, couldn't you have chosen a more portable instrument?
Rarity: Heavens, no! The grand piano is the most refined and elegant of instruments. With it, I will be able to express my full musicality.
[kitchen timer goes off]
Rainbow Dash: Well, our time's up. I guess we'll have to move our practice to the gym.
Applejack: Guess you're gonna express your "full musicality" clear across campus.
Rarity: Huh? Awww...
Pinkie Pie: Or you could play this! It's part guitar, part keyboard! It's a guitarkey!
Rainbow Dash: You mean a keytar.
Pinkie Pie: Po-tay-to, to-mah-to.
Rarity: [plays keytar] Ooh! Oooh! Oh, my!
Applejack: Well, look at that!
Rainbow Dash: Cool!
Pinkie Pie: [gasps] Wowee!
Fluttershy: Oh, my goodness!
Applejack: Well, then, how about ya take that keytar and move your tail to our next rehearsal space?
Rarity: Fine, fine. [to the Diamond Dog boys] I don't suppose... [plays keytar riff]


A Case for the Bass

Applejack: Okay, Granny, one more time. When ya accidentally sold my bass at the garage sale, who did ya sell it to?
Granny Smith: [stammers] I sold it to the owners of that new pawn shop. Uh, Flibbity Flabbity, somethin' like that.
[bell rings]
Flim: Welcome to the grand opening of the Flim Flam Brothers' Everything Under the Sun Emporium!
Flam: If you want it...
Flim and Flam: ...we've got it!
Flim: Need a pogo stick?
Flam: A bowling ball?
Flim: A stuffed clown?
Flam: Whatever this is?
Applejack: I'd like that bass.
Flim: I can give you this bass for a non-negotiable price of one thousand dollars.
Rarity: Why, you only paid Granny Smith two dollars for it!
Flim: Yes, well, we have to cover our overhead and transportation costs.
Applejack: Listen, Granny never should've sold my bass. I'll give ya the two dollars back and we'll call it even.
Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy and Rarity: [agreeing]
Flim and Flam: Likely story!
Applejack: It is. That's my bass.
Flim: And can you prove that this is, in fact, your bass?
Rarity: Her initials are monogrammed right on the strap.
Flam: That could mean anything. It could stand for...
Flim: "Aardvark Junior"...
Flam: "Anvil Jokers"...
Flim: Or "Animal Jane".
Flam: Why, I'll bet you don't even play the bass, Applejack – if that is your real name.
Rainbow Dash: Of course that's her real name!
Pinkie Pie: And she does play the bass!
Applejack: [plays slap bass solo]
Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy and Rarity: [cheering]
Flim: Perhaps this is her bass. But there are still the transportation costs and overhead.
Flam: Don't forget the stocking fees.
Flim: Wouldn't dream of it, brother!
Applejack: [sighs]
Flam: Then again, I suppose we could make some sort of trade?
Applejack: Come on down to the grand opening of the Flim Flam Brothers' Everything Under the Sun Emporium.
Granny Smith: Since when do you play the bass?

Album My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Shake Your Tail is a song featured in the My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks animated short of the same name, as well as being the fifth of eleven songs featured in My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks.

The short is one of the first eight released as a tie-in to the Rainbow Rocks film. It is the first to be published by the German Equestria Girls YouTube channel, in English on April 16, 2014[5] until the upload was made unavailable later in the same week due to a copyright claim by Hasbro Studios LLC, the seventh to be published by the Hasbro Studios Shorts YouTube channel, in English on June 6, 2014, the sixth to be published by the My Little Pony Facebook page, in English on June 17, 2014,[6] and the fourth to be published overall.


Production

The song was first revealed in a Rainbow Rocks clip released via Entertainment Weekly, [7] and more of the song first appeared as a different version in chapters six, sixteen, seventeen, and the bonus activity page "Lyrical Laughter" of the Rainbow Rocks screenplay novelization of the animated shorts.

The short was adapted into chapters 16 and 17 of the Rainbow Rocks novelization, which was released more than a week earlier than the short itself. According to the book, as is for the short Perfect Day for Fun, Twilight's presence in this short is just a figment of her own imagination, because she misses her friends from Canterlot High, so she imagines to be there with them.

An instrumental version is heard in Hasbro's online game Rainbooms Repeat the Beat, the Hasbro Arcade minigame My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, and a DJ Pon-3 minigame from the Equestria Girls app.

The song serves as the fifth track on the My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. The version on the album is slightly different as the first pre-chorus contains a Hammond organ solo. It is also the first track on My Little Pony Equestria Girls - Rainbow Rocks CD.

As revealed in the commentary, the film sequence was storyboarded by Carrie Mombourquette, the same artist who boarded the short version.


Animated short summary

The short is a music video wherein the six friends perform the song at a school dance party. The performance is interspersed with a story in which the six attempt to decorate the school auditorium for the party. Each tries out a different theme for the party that ends in failure of some sort: Pinkie Pie's luau-themed set that falls apart around her; Rainbow Dash bombards her friends with soccer balls and basketballs in a sports theme; Applejack's country theme includes a dangerous rodeo bull; Rarity's elegant masquerade falls through when Pinkie startles everyone with a tiki mask; Twilight Sparkle turns the party into a boring study session; and Fluttershy's petting zoo idea results in animals running amok. Finally, Rainbow Dash comes up with an idea and combines all of their themes into one.


Lyrics

Animated short and film version

[The Rainbooms]
We've just got the day to get ready

Perfect Day for Fun is a song featured in the My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks animated short of the same name. It is performed by the Rainbooms. Like Shake Your Tail, a version of the song with different lyrics appears in the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks screenplay novelization of the animated shorts.

The short is one of the first eight released as a tie-in to the Rainbow Rocks film. It is the first to be published by the Latin American Spanish My Little Pony Equestria Girls ES YouTube channel, in Spanish on June 18, 2014,[3] the eighth to be published by the Hasbro Studios Shorts YouTube channel, in English on June 19, 2014, the seventh to be published by the My Little Pony Facebook page, in English on July 2, 2014,[4] and the eighth to be published overall.

On BMI, the song is registered as "With My Best Friends".


Production

The short was adapted into chapter one of the Rainbow Rocks novelization, which was released months earlier than the short itself. According to the book, as is for the short Shake Your Tail, Twilight and Spike's presence in this short is just a figment of Twilight's imagination, because she misses her Canterlot High friends, so she imagines to be there with them.


Animated short summary

The short is a music video wherein Twilight Sparkle and her human friends have fun at a Canterlot High evening carnival. With the exception of Applejack, the six have no dialogue in the short and instead communicate via text messages. Interspersed with this are shots of the girls singing and playing instruments on a stage.

Applejack and Rainbow Dash try a high-striker game; both of them are beaten by puppy Spike. Fluttershy plays "Whack-A-Mole!", but instead of whacking the moles, she pets them. She does however whack a Discord plush doll out of Twilight's hands. Pinkie Pie and Rarity enjoy cotton candy. Eventually the six friends meet up at a pair of photo booths and take pictures.

As the girls begin their stage performance, everyone on the carnival grounds starts dancing. Photos on Twilight's phone show the six friends enjoying other carnival games and attractions. At the end of the song, Spike, Flash Sentry,the Crusaders, Big McIntosh, Cheerilee, Granny Smith, Trixie, DJ Pon-3, and Vice Principal Luna come together for a group photo. The short concludes with Twilight and her friends looking at photos while riding the Ferris wheel.

Album My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

My Past is Not Today is a song featured in the My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks animated encore short of the same name, which leads up to the third Equestria Girls film installment, Friendship Games.[3] The short and song were uploaded to the Hasbro Studios Shorts YouTube channel on April 1, 2015[6] before being made private and separately reuploaded on April 3, 2015,[7] both times alongside Life is a Runway and Friendship Through the Ages; Hasbro's My Little Pony Facebook page uploaded it on May 3, 2015,[8] and the Hasbro Studios Shorts YouTube channel uploaded a sing-along version on May 4, 2015.[9]

The song marks Sunset Shimmer's first solo. At the end of the short, Sunset takes on a phoenix-like appearance, which was a visual metaphor according to Ishi Rudell[10][11] and is reminiscent of her rock star dress from both her Time to Shine doll and the chapter book Sunset Shimmer's Time to Shine.

On the back of a printed insert bundled in the Barnes & Noble Special Edition of My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: Sunset Shimmer's Time to Shine, a letter to Rarity from Sunset Shimmer includes a draft of the song My Past is Not Today. It serves as the second track on the soundtrack album My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, under the title My Past Is Not Today.


Animated short synopsis

At dusk, Sunset Shimmer is seen singing on the roof of Canterlot High School. Then, a flashback of her demonic transformation from the first film occurs. Through further flashbacks, Sunset discards the photos of her as Princess of the Fall Formal as seen in Principal Celestia's office. She sings about how difficult it was for her to make friends. Sunset decides to let her past go by letting her leather jacket blow away in the wind. She is soon surrounded by a yellow magical aura. As she starts to float, she takes on a phoenix-like form.

Lyrics


[Sunset Shimmer]
Power
Was all I desired (I desired, all I desired)
But all that grew inside me
Was the darkness I acquired
When I began to fall
And I lost the path ahead
That's when your friendship found me
And it lifted me instead
Like a phoenix burning bright
In the sky
I'll show there's another side to me
You can't deny
I may not know what the future holds
But hear me when I say
That my past does not define me
'Cause my past is not today
Ambition
Is what I believed
Would be the only way
To set me free
But when it disappeared
And I found myself alone
That's when you came and got me
And it felt like I was home
Like a phoenix burning bright
In the sky
I'll show there's another side to me
You can't deny
I may not know what the future holds
But hear me when I say
That my past does not define me
'Cause my past is not today

Friendship Through the Ages is a song featured in the My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks animated encore short of the same name, which leads up to the third Equestria Girls film installment, My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games.[6] The short and song were uploaded to the Hasbro Studios Shorts YouTube channel on April 1, 2015[7] before being made private and separately reuploaded on April 3, 2015,[8] both times alongside My Past is Not Today and Life is a Runway; Hasbro's My Little Pony Facebook page uploaded on April 29, 2015,[9] and the Hasbro Studios Shorts YouTube channel uploaded a sing-along on May 6, 2015.[10] The short uses the "rockin' hairstyle" appearances of six Rainbooms.[11] Rainbooms Remix, which was released months earlier, contains snippets of the song.

It serves as the first track on the soundtrack album My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.


Animated short synopsis

The Rainbooms lead Sunset Shimmer on a magical musical journey through the ages. The short begins with Twilight Sparkle playing the piano on a classical stage. Fluttershy then takes Sunset through a hilly field and Sunset blows the seeds off a dandelion. Rarity then appears in her Sgt. Pepper-esque outfit from Rainbow Rocks in a psychedelic background, and Sunset sprouts from a flower. Rainbow Dash then takes over with a metal-style verse as Sunset crowd surfs. Applejack then sings a country-style verse on a farm while Sunset rides a horse and line-dances with her. Pinkie Pie then sings a techno-pop style verse as Sunset vectors onto a grid. All of the Rainbooms sing two more choruses, joined by Sunset. They conclude the song in a group hug.


Lyrics

Rainbooms on darkened background EG2
[Twilight Sparkle]
Nothing stays the same for long
But when it changes doesn't mean it's gone
Time will always get away
As it leaves behind another day
[Fluttershy]
Things may come and things may go
Some go fast and some go slow
Few things last, that's all I know
But friendship carries on through the ages
[Rarity and Fluttershy]
Things may come and things may go
Some go fast and some go slow
Few things last, that's all I know
But friendship carries on through the ages
[Rainbow Dash]
Been around for a long time
Rocking out hard 'cause I'm in my prime
Maybe it'll change further down the line
But my friendship carries on through the ages
[Applejack]
Every single style has something
Different it can say
There's nothing wrong with being unique
And special in your own way
[Pinkie Pie]
Maybe you wanna be a pop star
Get your fifteen minutes of fame, wha, ah! Ah, oh!
That won't last forever
But friendship remains the same, ah-oh, oh!
[The Rainbooms sans Sunset Shimmer]
Things may come and things may go
Some go fast and some go slow
Few things last, that's all I know
But friendship carries on through the ages




[Rarity]
But friendship carries on
[The Rainbooms]
Things may come and things may go
Some go fast and some go slow
Few things last, that's all I know
But friendship carries on through the ages




[Rarity]
But friendship carries on
Ohhh-oh, carries on...

Animated short synopsis

The short begins with Rarity in her workspace designing some fashions. In a fantasy sequence, Rarity struts down the street wearing her Rainbooms outfit. She gives magical makeovers to Derpy, Cheerilee, Lyra Heartstrings and Sweetie Drops. In the next fantasy sequence, they are all strutting down a runway joined by Rose and Amethyst Star. The short returns to reality as Rarity finishes sewing her fashions.


Lyrics


[Rarity]
Life is a runway (runway)
Listen, here's what it's all about
I tell you, life is a runway (runway)
Time to bring what's on the inside out
Into the light
Into the light
Life is a runway
When you see it my way
Take all the good inside
Make it beautiful
Fashion is a way to start
Showing what's in your heart
Call it superficial
I call it irrefutable
Oh-oh, oh wha-oh
Oh-oh, oh wha-oh
Oh-oh, oh wha-oh
Life is a runway
You can be the girl
That you want to be
With a little love
And some accessories (life is a runway)
Don't be scared to show you have
Personal style
Just go do your thing
You'll make everyone smile (life is a runway)
You can be the girl
That you want to be
With a little love
And some accessories (life is a runway)
Don't be scared to show you have
Personal style
Just go do your thing
You'll make everyone smile (life is a runway)
Life is a runway (runway)
I'll show you what it's all about
I tell you, life is a runway (runway)
Time to bring what's on the inside out
Into the light
Into the light
Into the light
Into the light
Into the light
