Best My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Songs

One of the best things about MLP: FIM is the songs. These are the best ones. Enjoy!

The Top Ten

1 This Day Aria

This song make me both love and hate Shining
Why didn't he realize that his wife was not his wife like his sister did

Love the song and the episode. The song is exciting and sad at the same time. Cadence has a great voice, and it sounds like 2. Completly different ponies. This song is so amazing, I don't have words for it.

LOVE! The suspense is amazing it's dramatic it's so much more than what you would expect and is by far one of the standout songs in the series, it's just incredible! The elegant voice of Cadance and the demanding voice are the same voice but the tone changes everything and that's one if the reasons I love it. Number one in my book, except for maybe the applejack bat song from Bats! Not sure the exact name.

I loved how the song showed both sides instead of just one side, it gave the whole song more depth. And it was super dramatic which gave it a really good feel!

2 Smile, Smile, Smile

I like it because of the video Smile HD

In season one of my little pony friendship is magic, the songs from Pinkie Pie was not good. I don't mean their bad, but none of them was good to be on my top ten my little pony friendship is magic songs. But then, as I watched A Friend In Deed, ooh boy, the song was spectacular. While her other songs were good, this song puts the others to shame because the lyrics were great and this song was longer than her other songs. Her other songs were about 16 seconds or 50 seconds or 1 minute. However, this song was about 3 minutes in length. And this song reminds me of Pharrell Williams Happy. So, this song is the best song of my little pony friendship is magic.

Best Pinkie Pie song! This one is really a personal choice on the list, because I relate so much to it. My main goal is to make people smile and be happy, and this song made me "smile. "

This song winds me up - Eliheffley

3 What My Cutie Mark Is Telling Me

I love this song. It's so Good!

I love how this song introduces the problem of the episode in a comedic and catchy way. It has amazing performances by all of the characters, and gives birth to the ending frame of the ponies in halves.

Yet another good catchy song. But the best part about it is the transitions and animation, especially at the end of the song.

I really enjoy this song. I think it would be hilarious if the Cutie Mark Crusaders got more members and they did a version of this.

4 Helping Twilight Win the Crown

It brings back old memories

I absoloutely love this song, the dance, the lyrics, the costumes, it must have taken LOADS of time! Everyone MUST vote vote for this song, THERE IS NO EXCUSES, THIS IS THE BEST MLP SONG!

This song definitely deserves number. Not because twilight, but because of the awesome beats, music, singing, and overall awesomeness (I sound like rainbow dash)! And you know when a song is good when fluttershy takes part in it!

I love this song for my entire life, Twilight is very amazing. Twilight's part is my favorite when she and flash are next to each other, I totally ship them.

5 Winter Wrap Up

This song really pumped me up when I was taking down the Christmas tree. Made me feel hyped. I don't know why though.

This song is just so catchy! It is the first song in the show to feature all of the mane six singing, and it was good!

It has very stupid lyrics, but you can't help getting this song stuck in your head. Personally, I think it should have been farther down on the list, but that is just me.

Needless to say my jaw dropped to the floor when I heard twilight sing. Hooves down she is the best singer of the mane six. I can't believe she could sing that well

6 Babs Seed

This song is meant to make you sing it under your breath for weeks! It is so so so catchy, I mean even the music video makes it even more addicting to listen to or even watch again, also, you can sort of relate to it some times, if our being bullied, most will just try to not tell anyone and just try and handle it themselves. But it works out in the end to say "If someones being bullied, speak out."

You know, the first two Cutie Mark Crusaders songs were awful. The first one was funny and the instrumentals were great, but the song itself was ear-bleaching and hard to listen to. The second was better, but it was to lovely dovey for me. But then as the third song called Babs Seed, damn. The song was catchy, it had the best visuals and they can sing better.

I love this song! Especially when later in the episode they fid out that babs is being bullied :( but still so good

Do you know those kind of songs that you're obsessed with but eventually get over after a few months? This song is not one of those songs, for me at least.

I've always loved Babs Seed since the first time I heard it. I used to hate musical numbers, so whenever watching MLP, I would skip songs. But while watching One Bad Apple, this song hooked me in. The song is not too long either, it's about a minute and a half long, and it keeps your attention.

Overall, the song is energetic and definitely catchy! People tell me that the song is a bit repetitive, but that's what makes it so catchy and fun to listen to. The animation is fantastic as well. Plus, the CMC are so cute. c:

Every song ever is like that. I'm obsessed with " Breaking The Law" by Judas Priest right now. - MusicalPony

7 A True True Friend

I like this song because it really reflects what my little pony is about. It's about there wonderful adventures as friends and this song definitely describes there true true friendship

Just like winter wrap up, this song is REALLY catchy. Also, I like how it features all of the mane six doing what they were born to do and realizing it by getting their true cutie marks.

It would be better if Twilight wasn't in this song ever - ashlyn

Really awesome I love this because of the line and music and how a friend helps another friend

8 Under Our Spell

This should be ranked way higher. It's extremely catchy and the singers have the voices of sirens. (Get it? The pun. Cause they're si-nevermind my lame puns :P) the song is enchanting and mesmerizing, love it way too much.

I TOTALLY LOVE THIS SONG! The minor key of it is so cool, and the tune is superb. I kept singing it in my head for a while after I heard it. One of the best songs in My Little Pony

I love this song, The chorus is very cool. It is very awesome and bad at the same time.

This should be ranked way higher! The tune is so amazing and catchy. Awesome song.

9 My Past Is Not Today

This song... is beautiful. I don't know how else to describe it. See, unlike "The Midnight in Me", which was Sci-Twi doing more moping and refusing to tell anyone what's wrong, this song is saying, "Your past mistakes are not what define you, it's what you do today that counts. You can't worry about the past because you need to concentrate on what's happening". Also, anyone else notice that Sunset's singing voice is AMAZING?! Sunset generally gets really good solo songs, with all three of them being some of my personal favorites. I said what was so great about this one, "Embrace the Magic" was Sunset encouraging her friends to find out what's happening, even though it may feel unconventional at the time. Basically, "It may not feel like a good time to get these powers now, but if we figure this out, in the long run it will make things a lot easier". And her last song, "We've Come so Far Together", serves as a great intro and sort of an exposition dump that isn't in the form of ...more

Why this song wasn't in Rainbow Rocks, I will never know. I think we have all been in Sunset's situation at least once, where we have made a huge mistake and had trouble moving on from it. This song perfectly captures Sunset's struggle with that and her eventual acceptance that one mistake doesn't define you. An amazing, upbeat number that perfectly symbolizes the redemption of Sunset Shimmer.

I love this song very much as I love Sunset, She has a very wonderful voice for me. Sunset is very nice now and that's why her past does not define her cause her past is not today.

This song always makes me feel so sad for sunset shimmer as she turned into a she demon in her past and changed forever

10 Celestia's Ballad

So far, I only liked This Day Aria,My Past is Not Today and Under Our Spell,I don't like these others songs,too boring!

A short song, but the first sung by Celestia! I really love this song. The flashbacks bring me back to all of the other episodes, and it makes me feel like Friendship is Magic is ending forever.

This song is definitely the best you people don't even know the names of the songs, a friend for life? Apples to the core is in season 4! No fear song? Really?!? If you know it do it.

As much as I loved this song, for some reason I got extremely depressed listening to it. It is like leaving an entire part of Twilight's life behind her to take on a new unwanted role of a princess. Still, very beautiful song.

The Contenders

11 Apples to the Core

This song was wonderful. It showed the loyalty family members feel toward each other, and it was great fun. I wanted to sing along, not to mention I wished I was Pinkie, being admitted into this awesome pony family.

It basically sounds like a bunch of rednecks singing random country crap my dad likes to listen to. I have seen rednecks before, and apparently I heard people say stuff about Bolivar being the most redneck city in the state of Tennessee. It even sounds like something redneck.

This song is incredibly cowboyish which makes you dance to this song. Apple Jack takes the lead here and I love it!

Granny Smith singing, what more could you ask for!? Catchy and fun!

12 Stop the Bats

I was amazed when I heard this song

How's this song not in the top 10!? - Bruno131

Trump is AppleJack and the bats are Mexicans

Why is not higher? First, the visuals. When Aj sings, the mood is very dark, corresponding to the lighting, but when fluttershy sings, the screen is brighter and more delicate. The background music to, much like this day aria shows a real big contrast to the style each pony sings in. Applejack and her powerful vocals, fluttershy and her more timid yet lighter voice, it really tied the song together. Besides, I can't be the only one who got chills sat the end of the song, it is that good.

13 You'll Play Your Part

I particularly love cadence’s and the harmonised parts

A wonderful work by Daniel Ingram. Fantastic singing, and even more marvelous orchestrals behind the voice. The music itself is quite powerful and strong. It perfectly complements the beauty of the voices of the three princesses. Absolutely gorgeous harmonizing. I doubt even these words do true justice to describe the beauty of this awe-inspiring piece of work.

I've listened to it so many times and I never get fed up. beautiful singing especially cadence towards the end this is so amazing it makes me want to jump up and but at the same time burst out crying!

I can't get enough of this song. I can't count how many times I've listened to this song (because I don't count) and in my opinion, this is easily the best song in the series. Top 3 if nothing else.

14 Find the Music In You

This song is my favourite because the acapella makes it more impressive than the other mlp songs.

I know you people have heard this from YouTube or the rest of the Internet before, but this song is terrible. Well, at least until flutter shy joins in, NOT HER FLUTTERGUY VOICE, her normal voice is beautiful though! Otherwise, yea, it became annoying when it first played

Love it! This song should make top ten at least...

Just love the sound

15 Hearts As Strong As Horses

I Love this song despite its really catchy meaning of the song that maybe they young they could really can do that the others cannot do for the trophy

It is very catchy and powerful coming from the Crusaders. It is about them being as strong as their sisters and wanting to be like them.

I believe it had really added to the episode it featured in and it is the type of song I will never forget the lyrics to.

The most emotion stirring and dramatic song of the show!

16 The Magic Inside (I'm Just a Pony)

This one of the best songs in the show. It's emotional, supportive and Lena Hall is a great singing. When I heard this song I felt at peace it spoke to me, make me want to improve in my work; and as much as it pains me to say this. It's better than This Day Aria and boy it did not fail.

This song is probably even more pro then most singers. It blew me away when I heard it. Its more emotional then funny. Especially because this is a kids show, its really good. I've been obsessed with it for weeks now!

This song is just absolutely amazing. It holds so much meaning and motivation. And the power that the voice actress put into this song is spectacular. Next to "This Day Aria" this the best song.

Best song of the series in my opinion. Especially being one of the last episodes of season 5

17 Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000

It really makes you want to buy the cider. If I didn't know how horrible it was, I would've bought 20 barrels.

Probably favorite song in the series. It's really catchy

I Hate this song the most boring song ever after

I Loved that episode so much

18 Let the Rainbow Remind You

This is a great song I love this.this should be higher at least 6

It is such a beautiful song. It shows that even though we may make mistakes, we can always pick ourselves up and start over again. The song also reflects on everything that happened in season 4. When mlp ends, they should defiantly put a song like this, but they should have it reflect from all the seasons. I personally think this should be at the top 5 at least.

I have 5 best friends like Twilight, and we all love singing and different mane 6 characters. We sing this one as our favourite characters!

I love this song and think it should be higher. Though I like 'You're a princess, you'll play your part' slightly better, this song is my 2nd favorite by far.

19 The Vote

I love this song so much. I listen too it more or less all the time. Contrasting music, contrasting lyrics. It's beautiful!

This is my favorite song in mlp ever. Why is it 95, anyway? It really deserves number one.

20 The Pony I Want to Be

I feel bad for diamond tiara when I heard this song, I didn't know that she don't want to be a spoiled brat.

I love this song. Diamond tiara actually sounds good in her song

It is the most awesome, after the Light of Your Cutie Mark

This song shows a part of Diamond Tiara that we've never seen before! It has beautiful lyrics and a catchy tune. I love how it shows that everyone (even people you wouldn't expect) has good in them, and how everyone has a story.

21 At the Gala

This song shows a lot of continuity from the ticket master. Plus Rainbows line in it is pretty awesome.

Don't tell my friends I like this song - PrinceAntho

Been dreaming, I've been waiting, to fly with those great ponies

Seriously?! Thirteen?! I hate this song.

22 Open Up Your Eyes

My favorite song in the movie - Masochismismagic

I love Emily Blunt's voice as Tempest. Best song of the movie hands down.

Mlp? Making a song that is a full on villain song? (Sorry Chrisalis, Cadence sang too) YES.

23 I've Got to Find a Way

This song is amazing like the character! - Sugarcubecorner

This song is so beautiful. Extended version 100% COOLER!

I love this song and wish there was a longer version of it

I just wish it had a longer version of this song because it is so heart touchy

24 You're in My Head Like a Catchy Song

Honestly, this song is my favorite in the series. It's absolutely beautiful and learning about their parents with it was amazing and touching.

Makes you cry tears of joy that become tears of sadness when you remember that they both died.

This is a beautiful song. This is most likely on the top ten.

It's so cute :3 - narutoluap

25 Rainbow - Sia

I don't know why this song is not on any ones list of mlp songs

It is great

My #1 mlp song

26 Let's Have a Battle (of the Bands)

I was surprised at how good the Rainbow Rocks ended up being. I didn't know whether to pick this, Under Our Spell, or Awesome As I Wanna Be. In the end, this one won out mostly because it starts relatively simple and just builds up as the song progresses, and I love songs that manage to pull that off effectively. But the whole soundtrack is really good.

I love this song, When I watch rainbow rocks. I am waiting for all of the song cause I think the songs in rainbow rocks were super duper cool.

Love it! Super catchy and very emotional. I sing it when I'm in the shower. Screw "Elmo's World", go Battle of the Bands!

I really love this song! Me and my friend usually sings it every time at school, including going to toilet!

27 Becoming Popular

Rarity songs are always great. Her voice while singing is very relaxing, and combined with the more upbeat songs like this one sounds great. Amazing job to everyone who assisted in the creation of this song, including the animators.

Also, what happens during this song perfectly shows he entire episode's conflict. Rarity loves and is absorbed in the Canterlot lifestyle, but she still needs to make Twilight's dress and feels guilty she didn't work on it and make it as pretty as she intended.

Rarity is, in my opinion, the best singer. Rainbow dash is good, but Rarity is amazing. This needs to be in the top 5, its catchy, has a nice and motivational meaning, and stars the one and only Rarity!

The main reason I like this song is because its catchy. The lyrics are creative too.

This SONG IS JUST AWESOME WHO doesn't LIKE IT. Seriously its just is so so so so so so so awesome.

28 I'll Fly

Opinions on "Tanks for the Memories" seem to be all over the place. I personally love the episode, and this song is a big reason why. This is Rainbow Dash's first solo musical number, and it rocks! This song perfectly describes Rainbow's mindset as she tries to stop winter. It also shows us how much Tank means to Dash and somewhat justifies her actions as she goes through the bargaining phase of the grief cycle. Ashleigh Ball's singing is incredible, and the multi-tracking with her vocals adds some really neat effects to the song. Finally, the composition and arrangement are some of the best of the season so far. I particularly like the guitar parts, which are very fun to play.

While This day aria, pinkies lament, smile smile smile, true friend, cutie mark is telling me and a few other songs are great this song is spectacular why I'll tell you. Firstly the singing voice is the best in the show. The visuals set in too. The instrumentals are not the best in the series by are great. But the real advantage this song has is how it flows. The song flows beautifully and expresses rainbow dashes wish for tank to not hibernate amazingly.

For Rainbow Dashes first solo, this song was a GREAT start! Its touching, catchy, has amazing vocals, and actually kinda funny! Sure she has sang at times in the show, but they weren't more than 10 seconds. Here you get 3 minutes of Rainbow Dash singing! Having high hopes for her to have more solos!

This one's really forgettable... I went through the list and I didn't remember which one it was. I was all "Which song IS this? " and had to look it up, I totally forgot it even existed.

29 Bats!

How come no one thought of this? My favourite.

How come no one thought of this? My favourite!

30 The Party Pony Pinkie

You go Pinkie! BEST. PONY. EVER! Party canon

31 We'll Make Our Mark

It perfectly suits how the CMC truly tried their hardest and got what they truly deserved in the end; their marks. It's tearjerking beauty (like The Magic Inside), amazing orchestration, true inspiration to everyone, it's just EVERYTHING I like in a My Little Pony song. It's absolute perfection hands down with true heart to it like the episode it's from... (*sniff*) - TylertheTitan

I found it deep. Very heartfelt. I got chills listening to it.

32 We're Friendship Bound

This is an AWESOME SONG! So catchy!

33 Discord

I showed this to my friend one day, and he couldn't stop singing it! I was like, "Dude! Shut up! " But, this is THE BEST fan-made song ever! Discord is the coolest villain ever because guess why? He has swagger and his own troll face,

Come on no one thought of this song?

This is a fan made song, not a song on the show... :/

Okay, whoever voted for this KNOWS the song is not an official My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic song, right? But who cares? It's still a fan song under the MLP brand, right? Yeah, there's a reason copyright infringement exists, people! - Thifer20

34 Raise This Barn

Good Instrumentals. Check. Catchy tune. Double check. Fabulous country singing voice. Triple check. We are good to go! This song delivers everything a catchy and upbeat song should have.

It's AWeSOME! Brings out my inner country

Anything any of the Apples sing is awesome.

This song is also even though I love ryming songs I love this one.

35 Big Brother Best Friend Forever

It should be in the top ten for my opinion

36 A Kirin Tale

This song needs more love. A very underrated song, and it falls into the category of "A song that teaches kids a lesson", but unlike a lot of the songs in that category, the theme of this song is actually extremely important for kids to learn and understand. At least top ten material, although not the best song ever produced by MLP or EQG.

OH. MY. GOSH! This is the best song EVER! Autumn’s voice is so captivating, and the song itself and the tune are very catchy. I can’t get it out of my head! I hum or sing it 24/7, and it drives my family crazy. I don’t get why this song is down here. It should be right below This Day Aria.

37 Art of the Dress

The first part of the song is okay, but it was the second part that made it worthy enough to be on the list. It's a good lesson about how the customer is not always right.

I've learned almost all of the songs on mlp but this one is the best!
And yes the 2end song is the best but the first song is good too! In fact sometimes instead of watching the episode I just listen to the song then chose another one!

I don't like Rarity as a character very much, but she always gets great songs and Kazumi Evans has a wonderful voice.

I like them all but the songs Rarity sings are the best somehow! - rainbowdashrules

38 Luna's Future

Love the dramatic-ness of the song, with it's ominous music, complemented by Luna's voice. Especially compared to the two previous more upbeat songs, Luna's Future was really jarring to listen to but in a good way-- Luna singing it is a bonus, of course.

Amazing. My favorite by FAR. How is this not in the top 10?! HOW?!

Why is this not in the top tens? This song is amazing it should be number 1 or 2!

Amazing... I was shocked to hear her voice.

39 I'm the Friend You Need - Capper (Taye Diggs)
40 The Super Duper Party Pony

Who doesn't like this song. Weird Al sang it perfectly. I love this song more than any of the others. Great beat, Great lyrics, Great references. Definitely a great song.

I love the episode and the songs, but this song is probably the best song in the episode. The character Cheese Sandwich is awesome and is played by Weird Al Yankovic.

How is this not higher?

41 Children of the Night

So not cannon I like it though

so good

so orginal

42 The Perfect Pet

It's very energetic sound, I like how it ranges from Fluttershy's voice till it hits Rainbow.

This is easily one of the best songs in the series. From a lyrical and melodic perspective, this song is brilliant.

Its cool how rainbow dash sings:(...It's just awesome.

Why this got nomainated for Emmy

43 Say Goodbye to the Holiday

Awesome song. Catchy and very good lyrics.

One of the best villain songs since This Day Aria. Kelly Sheridan's singing voice is amazing! - TexasBro93

44 Welcome to the Show

Definitely should be in top ten

What the hell? It should be in the top 5! Stupid bronies

I got shivers. This song is too good

37? This song should be in top ten

45 Awesome As I Wanna Be

Why only in 37? I love hearing this song over and over, don't hate me but I totally love this song. Rainbow is very cool at this song.

More like the worst song ever, no offense to people who like this song.

Can't even understand it

It is very catchy indeed, but isn't a little too not like Dashie?

V 4 Comments
46 Pinkie's Present

This is an amazing song and it's so like Pinkie Pie! It is also is really upbeat and it's a good Christmas song as well.

47 Time to Be Awesome - Captain Celaeno (Zoe Saldana), Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Rarity, Spike, Boyle, First Mate Mullet, Lix Spittle

Has a very strange title, considering the meaning but (personally, I love Rainbow Dash) I can't help but love this song!

48 Unleash the Magic

Another song I'm obsessed with. I like to listen to it in other languages a lot (most often Russian). I dare say it's better than This Day Aria - SugarcoatShadowBolt

Unleash the Magic is the second best villain song ever in my little pony friendship is magic. Under Our Spell is still the best villain song in my little pony friendship is magic. But however Unleash the Magic is way too awesome.

It is a nice (and creepy) song. It's has the same tune as 'Poor Unfortunate Soul' in the little mermaid

Best song in Friendship Games - bobbythebrony

49 The Cutie Mark Crusaders


If you listen to it without music, Maddie is laughing in one part, but you can't hear it with the music.

I love the crusaders theme song definitely should be top ten

Best comedy song ever, well one day.

50 Glass of Water

You know that song that you can never get out of you head? Yeah, this is it. I love it when Discord sings. He just has so much swagger!

I LOVE THIS SONG! You could listen to it for hours.

I don't get how this song isn't in the top 10. As far as I'm concerned it's the best FiM song by a mile.

Discord's song is so funny and catchy!
