Pony Music Library 16: "This Day Aria"

About time we had another one of these, I suggest.

What? "This Day Aria"

Who? Daniel Ingram, Steffan Andrews (orchestration) and Meghan McCarthy (lyrics)

Which? Show song

When? April 2012

Why? Really? Really? But okay: because it's still, to this day, one of the most impressive songs that Friendship is Magic has ever featured. Probably the first time that the term "Disney-like" really applied to one of the series' tracks, it provides a fantastic accompaniment as the linked stories of Real!Cadance and Fake!Cadance that closed Season Two step up a gear. It contains a wonderful musical joke and just happens to have come out at the moment I entered the fandom. It breezes into the PML.


  1. My favourite 2-part finale, and this has a lot to do with it.
