My favourite MLP: Friendship is Magic Songs

I really like the songs composed in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, a lot of them are very catchy and pleasant to listen to (much better for musicals than Disney IMO).

Commentary:

Characters I would like to them to sing/hear more of:

  • *** Shining Armor: He’s number one for hearing a song from for me right now (originally was Luna until ‘You’ll Play Your Part’). I can see him doing a duet with Princess Cadance for certain — since he’s Twilight’s brother, I don’t see why not. All of the siblings of the Mane Six sung (except for Pinkie Pie’s family, which I doubt are the type to sing but I would be really surprised if they do lol) already, so I personally think he has the potential to have a play in a song too.
  • ** Princess Luna: She only had a few lines in ‘You’ll Play Your Part,’ no solo songs like the other princesses had. There are a lot of fan made Luna portrayed songs that are great out there (more distinguished in her singing voice compared to the official one where she still sounded too similar to Rarity) so I think Luna has a lot of potential to work with.
  • ** Sapphire Shores: As the ‘Pony of Pop’ since Season 1, I’d like to see her in a song since it fits in with what she does.
  • * Zecora: I can’t really imagine the singing voice for her but I think she would be really interesting to hear from in a song.
  • ** Villains: I love villains who sing, that’s all. :P
  • ** Sunset Shimmer: I really like the contrast in the singing voice for Twilight and Sunset, I’d like to hear more from her.
  • ** Starlight Glimmer: She really shined in ‘Friends Are Always There For You’ in terms of singing, it shows a kinder contrast compared to ‘Our Town.’ She’ll probably have more singing roles in Season 6 assuming she won’t become a background character.
  • Diamond Tiara
  • Silver Spoon
  • Princess Celestia
  • Princess Cadance
  • Babs Seed
  • Trixie Lulamoon
  • Flash Sentry
  • Countess Coloratura (highly unlikely to return in a song)
  • The Dazzlings (highly unlikely to return in a song)
  • Queen Chrysalis (highly unlikely to return in a song)
  • ** Any other non-Mane Six/CMC characters I didn’t list in the above: It’s good to change up the cast here and then for songs because it’s just nice to hear from a different variety of people. Plus it’s more screen time for the non-main characters as well. :)

I do admit for the Mane Six/CMC, I’d like to hear more solos from characters that don’t sing very much on their own like Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Fluttershy, and CMCs individually. Same said for any combination of duets (or more than 2 but not everyone).
