about

Well, it’s finally happened. “Weird Al” in an episode of MLP, and not even a cameo, a full guest roll!

I absolutely love it. Weird Al has been a huge inspiration for me, especially for my more comedic pony parodies. I am so happy to be able to celebrate him with one of my personal favorite songs of his. So this is a pony parody, of an original song, by the master of parodies, who is guest starring as a pony, and inspired me to make pony parodies… I think that’s pretty full circle, now if only I could meet him. :D

I originally had this idea last year when the horoscope pony thing came out. It got lost in the shuffle, unfortunately, because I got busy with school, and work, and was still new to mixing and music programming and it took me a while to put the instrumental together. However, I like how the timing worked out… so this is dedicated to the hilarious “Weird Al” Yankovic, from one of his biggest fans!

“That’s Your Horoscope For Today” by Weird Al

lyrics

SWEETIE BELLE (AQUARIUS):
There’s travel in your future when you
Find out you’re a robot, must escape an angry mob
Just accept that you don’t have a soul,
And go all terminator on your enemies

SPIKE (PISCES):
Try to avoid any Virgos or Leos
That will treat you like a slave…
You are the true god of them all,
Although that you are still a little pipsqueak

RAINBOW DASH (ARIES):
The look on your face will be priceless when you’re
Catapulted to the other side of town
If you don’t end up breaking both your wings,
You’ll do so on another zany stunt

FLUTTERSHY (TAURUS):
You will never hold a relationship.
…wild animals are a lot of baggage…
The stars predict that you’ll wake up in jail,
When your unpaid taxes all catch up to you.

CHORUS:
That's your ponyscope for today (that's your ponyscope for today)
That's your ponyscope for today
That's your ponyscope for today (that's your ponyscope for today)
That's your ponyscope for today

LUNA (GEMINI):
Your birthday party will be ruined once again
When your sister eats your cake
Your love life will run into trouble when you
Deafen all your suitors with that loud and crazy voice

CELESTIA (CANCER):
The position of Jupiter says that you should
Stop using it as a cosmic jail, oh please!
Try not to start another war
That your student will end up having to deal with

TWILIGHT (LEO):
Now is not a good time to launch a royal coup
And make the kingdoms bow down to your greatness
Sit down and learn a couple of spells
That won’t backfire and blow in your face

RARITY (VIRGO):
All Virgos are extremely generous and beautiful
…except for you…
Expect a big surprise today
When your work force organizes revolución

CHORUS:
That's your ponyscope for today (that's your ponyscope for today)
That's your ponyscope for today
That's your ponyscope for today (that's your ponyscope for today)
That's your ponyscope for today

BRIDGE:
Now you may find it inconceivable or at the very least a bit unlikely
That a special group of ponies wearing silly costumes have some kind
Of really deep connection to the heavens and the stars
And know the future more than you
But let me settle all your questions with a very simple lesson that
These ponies are the arbiters of all of existence.
So don’t even think of challenging their
Omniscient authority or it might be the very final stupid thing you do.

Where was I?

APPLEJACK (LIBRA):
A big promotion is just around the corner,
You get to plow the North and South fields too!
Don’t forget to stock up on medicine,
For when you get tetanus from your brother’s rusty yoke

SCOOTALOO (SCORPIO):
Get ready for an unexpected fall
When Rainbow drops you in a flying lesson
At least you’ll get a joint hospital room,
In matching pink full body casts

PINKIE PIE (SAGITTARIUS):
Your friends don’t like your parties anymore
…kill them…
Just keep the Cupcake cellar nice and secure,
Or you’ll ride the lightning out of here!

APPLE BLOOM (CAPRICORN):
The stars say that you’ve got a very special talent, but…
You know they’re lying!
You might as well come to terms that
You will never never never never ever get your cutie mark

CHORUS:
That's your ponyscope for today (that's your ponyscope for today)
That's your ponyscope for today
That's your ponyscope for today (that's your ponyscope for today)
That's your ponyscope for today

That's your ponyscope for today (that's your ponyscope for today)
That's your ponyscope for today
That's your ponyscope for today (yay yay yay yay yay)
That’s your ponyscope for today
