Pony Music Library 20: "Open Your Eyes"

It's Aviators time again in the PML. As we reach entry no. 20, here's one of my absolute favourite fandom songs of any kind.

What? "Open Your Eyes"

Who? Aviators

Which? Original song

When? May 2013

Why? Just listen to it! What, you want more? All right, all right... the Season Three finale had some wonderful music in its own right, but it also inspired Aviators to create this fantastic piece about Twilight's struggle to fix the spell that has mixed up her friends' lives. It's utterly catchy, with clear, memorable lyrics that really get to me. "My technicolor world has faded to black" is such a brilliant line, too. This song demanded inclusion in the PML.
