smol horse musicians (feat. Chuckles, Violet Ray & Bulk Bogan)
Released 27 April 2022
Zenith is Ponies at Dawn's 25th album, and to celebrate the occasion, I teamed up w/ Chuckles, Violet Ray, and Bulk Bogan to submit a song about the quintessential P@D experience: getting your track rejected. And you bet we got rejected!
If you want remix stems, lmk

This was a blast to put together! A big thanks to Bulk, Violet Ray, and Chuckles for joining me for one of the dumbest ideas I've had. Each of them came up with own their lyrics based on the theme + performed them in the final track.
It's been two years since Friendship is Magic has gone
Many peeps have called it quits, but not Ponies at Dawn
Congrats on your twenty fifth ablum
This track will be my fifth rejection
that's right I'm still here keeping up the grind
even if MLP is past its prime
The quality bar to make this album is completely absurd
I pity every new musician who wants to join the herd
There's so many great artists in the fandom
I thought I would introduce some of 'them
We got Chuckles, Violet Ray, and Bulk Bogan in the house
better listen up fillies it's about to go down
smol horse musicians
Submitting to Ponies at Dawn
And we're probably gonna be rejected
But at least we wrote a song
'Cause we're all just trying to do our best
To keep this fandom music alive strong
So give us a break; come celebrate
Clap your hooves and sing along
Well when I was starting out and I dreamed a dream
I never thought I'd make my name in the music scene
And I haven't
But I kept writing songs, wouldn't miss a thing
Falling back into rap with a Christmas theme
Tween that and a stack and a list of greens
It's a fact that I lack any listening to my track
And my friends in the industry
Try to help when they tell and insist to me
I should try to diverge from my history
Maybe less pony sex try a mix of things
but heck that and I'll never elevate myself
So like every single label gonna take my stale
old tapes gonna relegate em to the shelf
It's fatal flaw but baby I don't need no help
Cause hey look, see I'm doing it for none of y'all
Never tried to sing a song at a concert hall
Or a con, quite frankly never tried at all
And I'm happy if I even get a joke to fall
I'm a little stinking horse musician,
you say you want more music but you steppin' on my dreams yo yo yo.
You wanna complain, I misbehavin' at the con.
Try to bust a move, ain't steppin' on your hoof.
You gotta loosen up a bit, I ain't tryna make you trip.
Just a little smol bean, sometimes too obscene.
Get a little out of hand cuz' I am human.
Not perfect like the ponies that you seein' on the big screen.
I wanna sing, horse musician.
Shout my voice and share my noise so you can feel my passion.
I understand your group is verified on twitter, horse famous.
I wanna break into the scene and jump around until it's loose.
Its not tight enough so buckle up, this shit is 'bout to get wild,
Crash the gate you keep and carve my name on the inside.
The name is Bulk Bogan, makin' music with my friends,
Runnin' out of oxygen, tiny horse musician
Smaaall horse, a commendable force
yeah we all start from somewhere, as a matter of course
we're not looking for excuses,
gonna make things with our uses
when one wins somepony loses,
Don't care if we all get bruises,
we're just happy to be producing
[Chorus x 2]
