they all just seem so lacking and "mehh" to me
i swear that in the previous seasons, they were much more catchy and better composed
but maybe thats just me?
I dunno, I always seem to find the songs don't impact me till I've gone back and listened to them. Hell, the first time I heard the "Smile!" song, before the actual episode it featured in, I wasn't exactly floored. Put into context though? After listening to it a zillion times? It's easily in my top three now.
Same goes for the Equestria Girls music. "Helping Twilight Win the Crown" felt like some weird, Britney Spears-ish 90's anthem on the first viewing in the theater. Grew to love it though... it's just so fucking CATCHY...
This season, I haven't been blown away or anything, but I haven't heard any I HATED, cept' maybe "Hearts as Strong as Horses," which felt dull (I've also softened a touch on that episode, given some people's ravings about the character development between Rainbow and Scootaloo I couldn't help being persuaded by).
I expected to hate "Apples to the Core," just because it sounded really silly and on the nose in animatic form back at Comic-Con. It's episode incarnation though? I was bouncing to the music. It's probably just that Applejack doesn't endear herself to me as much as the other five. I admit a sort of prejudice for southern-sounding people and their... "culture". Which is why "Raise this Barn" is REALLY low on my list.
And yet, I feel like I tend to give Applejack more lines than damn near anyone else in my fanfic, probably for her head-on supportive simple-wisdom dispensure. She just seems like the one most likely to speak up or object first when somebody says something outrageous. If not for Twilight, I'd also call her the most naturally leaderly of the group.
Speaking of which, I'm a touch late on this, but Chapter 14 of Black Equinox has been up:http://www.fimfiction.net/story/23282/1 ... chapter-14
