Equestria Daily will occasionally have a friend-off, where basically:
>artists draw pictures based on fanfics
>writers write fanfics based on pictures

for this round of Pony Music Compo, you're a musician writing a song for a fanfic OR a picture.

So it's a one-way (mini) musical friend-off. of sorts.

Does that clear it up? :)

Yes, Much thanks :]... I am also entertaining the thought that my song might get posted on EqD under something as popular as Past Sins... I am really liking how this song is turning out and I am about to ask my Non-brony music friends for feedback. (just because I love the sync listen and being able to hear everything for the first time with mah bronies, and I assume everypony else feels the same way)

this theme has been the death of me o.o every idea i've had i've scrapped.

However, I'm writing something right now (It's up on my soundcloud, but not finished, so if you don't wanna hear it prematurely, don't listen to the Saturday Morning one) that's based on a series of fics done on ponychan's SFG thread.

I doubt it'll top my last one, but it's a song about drugs and sex, so it'll be a lot different than what I normally do anyway! hooray for new things! xD
Hahaha I don't even go on here anymore
Seriously hit me up on skype or something, I'm rarely if ever online here.

Submitted TWO entries because I'm such a jerk!
But actually, felt like doing one, wrote something that is guaranteed to upset people and then remembered another pic and decided to write for that too! Gave me an excuse to not write classical for once...

if you can't get a chiptune out of this theme, I don't think there is a theme for you. :|

You want themes? Gotcha covered.

The Ultrafanboy
Take any person who has worked on FiM in any way, shape, or form. Music, writing, animation, whatever. Take any other project that they worked on and make a song based on it, or cover a song from it.

Oh God the Horror
Cover a song from or write an original piece based on a previous generation of My Little Pony.

Mood for a Day
What does a day in Ponyville sound like? What theme would you write for a day in the life of a given Ponyvillian? Or a Manehattanite, a Canterlotian, etc.

Best Pony
This one's easy: express who is best pony and why through song.

Where do rainbows come fr--Wait, this is really stupid. I can't believe I even thought this would be a good theme even for a second. Nevermind.

The Rite of (INSERT SEASON HERE)
We all know what it sounds like when Winter gets wrapped up. What about the other seasons, though?

For the New Lunar Republic...
...or for the Grand Celestial Monarchy? Do your allegiances lie with the princess of the sun, or of the moon? Make your stand through song.

Reverse Mini Friend-Off
Write a story or create a piece of art based on a piece of fan-music (preferably one that isn't yours).

I would like to direct your attention to the emphasized phrases in the following quotes:

no wait, gotta be smooth: as you can see, the a cappella was very poorly extracted. nearly indistinguishable from the original.
but since you mentioned it, I uploaded a slightly less poorly extracted acappella track.
