    Vocal Music 
My Little Pony: Equestria Girls
  • The opening. Bonus points for it resembling a fan made PMV, in both looks and sound.

My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks

  • Even Twilight's "Bad Counter Spell", despite the intentional Stylistic Suck in the instrumental parts, has Daniel Ingram's Signature Style in the vocals.
  • "Music to My Ears" from the tie-in shorts is Daniel Ingram's first attempt at dubstep, and it rocks as hard as anything by seasoned pros in the genre. In fact, its vast dynamic range may make it 20% TOO awesome; remixes tend to give it a more normalized volume level.
  • And here's a nice surprise: months after the film was released, three all new songs were released: "My Past is Not Today", a beautiful "I Am" Song for Sunset Shimmer that cements once and for all her Character Development and is already considered Sunset's "Let It Go" moment, "Life is a Runway", which shows Human Rarity is every bit an artist and designer as her Pony Counterpart (not to mention some gorgeous Vocal Evolution on Kazumi Evans' part), and "Friendship Through the Ages", a visual showstopper that serves an affirmation to each other (and potentially the audience) that no matter what happens, the core of the girls' friendship will always remain.

My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: Friendship Games

  • The CHS Rally Song, an uplifting song performed by Rainbow Dash and the CHS marching band in an attempt to raise school spirit for the Games. Eventually the whole auditorium joins in.
  • What More Is Out There, which shows how much the Human version of Twilight is an outcast at Crystal Prep, but holds out hope that there's something more for her.
  • Acadeca, a song that depicts both schools' competitiveness, as well as showing off Sunset's singing Vocal Evolution.
  • The movie's villain song, Unleash the Magic, sung by the principal of Crystal Prep Academy and the school's students convincing Twilight to use the magic she drained, delightfully dark and haunting. When Twilight herself joins in, the sense of hopelessness and despair instilled in a viewer is increased tenfold.
  • Right there in Front of Me, which has Sunset and Twilight singing together, along with the other Mane Six, showing how far the two have come.

My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: Legend of Everfree

  • To start us off, we have Legend of Everfree (Main Title), an upbeat song about following one's destiny and making a difference.
  • Human Twilight's solo for the film, The Midnight in Me, is a haunting song that shows how worried she is about her Superpowered Evil Side getting unleashed and how she wants to protect her new friends.
  • Sunset's solo, Embrace the Magic, is a catchy, Let It Go-esque song that encourages the girls to embrace their new powers and put them to good use.
  • Continuing the trend of epic villain songs, Gloriosa Daisy/Gaea Everfree gets We Will Stand For Everfree, a dark melody in which she expresses her desire to keep the camp running — even if it means she has to resort to unorthodox methods to do so.
  • The Rainbooms return to give us Legend You Were Meant To Be, a techno-pop song with a similar theme to the opening tune.
  • Finally, we have the credits song, Hope Shines Eternal, a song about hoping for a good future and-like other songs on this list-following your own path.

My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: Forgotten Friendship

  • Wallflower's Invisible, a pretty meaningful motive rant, for as long as it lasts.

Equestria Girls shorts

  • The Summertime Shorts featured a host of new music videos, including:
    • Mad Twience, a Human Twilight-focused song that showcases her love of science.
    • Monday Blues, a duet between Sunset Shimmer and Human Twilight about not letting a terrible day get you down.
    • Human Applejack's first solo number, Shake Things Up!, a catchy dance song in which she finds a creative — and tasty! — way to cure herself of boredom working at a juice bar.
    • And finally, Get the Show on the Road, which the Rainbooms sing while turning a decrepit, barely functioning school bus into an awesome tour bus. It also features Rainbow Dash rapping.
    • Two more musical shorts were released digitally later: Coinky Dink World, a fifties-style tune and solo for roller-skating waitress Pinkie Pie, and Good Vibes, a heartwarming song set over a montage of various students — including members of the Humane Six at their workplaces — helping each other, and ending with some viable Ship Tease between Sunset Shimmer and Flash Sentry.

Equestria Girls Digital Series

  • So Much More To Me. Fluttershy, in the comfort of her home, sings about how there's much more to her than being a shy girl.
  • The Other Side, a music video sung by everybody's favorite fashionista Rarity. Both the visuals and music will certainly wow any viewers with Rarity's stunning beauty.

My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks
  • Prior to Sunset's solo in "Welcome to the Show", we get a major Autobots, Rock Out! moment when the Dazzlings summons projections of their Siren forms, leading to the battle between them and the Rainbooms.

My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: Friendship Games

  • The original version of "What More Is Out There" features a Distant Duet between Human Twilight and Sunset Shimmer. Even if it led to a Broken Base, it's agreed to be beautiful. It was changed because the plot thread about Sunset's uncertainty of her place in the human world was dropped to focus more on Twilight finding her way. The final version is very pretty, with Twilight as a solo singer making the song a touch more intimate with Twilight's insecurities.
  • "Unleash the Magic" is definitely an intense Villain Song, having the tension, charisma, and singing chops to feel right at home in a Disney film. All the more effective since it ends with Twilight's transformation and subsequent Face–Heel Turn.

How well does it match the trope?
