PMV Spotlight - Old Mare's Tale (Octavastia Your Flank)
Hello everypony! It's okay, I'm still alive, but that last post took a lot out of me. Luckily my shipment of 12 new Sparkle Cola crates arrived today. Funny though, usually they arrive on Saturdays, ah well.
I saw this up on EQD today. It's pretty awesome, I really like the Avast Something-or-other's Ass tune and most of the pony renditions are great. Now I know what you're thinking, or at least I'm taking a sugar-high educated guess; "But Soggy? This be music, not a PMV, what gives?"
While it's listed as a song and I imagine it that way anyway, it does come with a little video backing it. I thought it was good enough to merit a PMV Spotlight, besides, I really like the song anyway.
It starts off with Fluttershy playing the flute (so cute) and all the highlights, more or less, are shown in the background throughout the length of the song. What I liked most about the video itself, was the little ponies in the corner, Octavia, the Tuba pony (what's her name?) and finally a very adorable Lyra.
It's got a very instrumental feel, while the classic tune is in there and one can clearly hear it, the song isn't blatantly obvious. Not that that's a bad thing. There's clear original parts to it, especially the strings parts.
All in all, the song is very graceful, while also having an epic feel to it. The PMV that goes along with is simple but... nice.
PS - I keep saying string instruments cause I can really tell what's what, I can tell the differences between each but not what they're called. Basically in my mind, there's the Violin-y sounding ones and the Guitar sounding ones.
*Braces for imminent flames.
