FROM THE EQUESTRIAN MACHINE ALBUM SERIES and the TAKE ME HOME EP - 2014

For the first time EVER, I'm showcasing my vocal skills in my take of Phil Collins's 1980's smash hit, "In the Air Tonight"! Yes, that's me singing; no, it's not perfect. This song was a bit of a challenge for me to cover, but I took my own spin on the rhythm of the vocals in the verses. So sure, it's not perfect, but at the end of the day, it was all worth it! At least I did my best.

There are many interpretations to this song, but in the context of part two of the Equestrian Machine, Magic Duel (where the song will be featured), the track represents purple unicorn Twilight Sparkle's own anger against braggadocio, a blue unicorn known as the Great and Powerful Trixie. (This song would take place before the fight, by the way.)

Track Name: In the Air Tonight
I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord...
And I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord...
Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord?
Oh Lord...

Well, if you told me you were drowning,
I would not lend a hand...
I've seen your face before, my friend,
but I don't know if you know who I am...

Well, I was there and I saw what you did;
I saw it with my own two eyes...
So you can wipe off the grin, I know where you've been;
it's all been a pack of lies...

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord...
Well, I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord...
I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord...
Well, I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord...

Well, I remember, I remember, don't worry;
how could I ever forget?
It's the first time,
the last time we ever met...

But I know the reason why you keep your silence up;
no, you don't fool me...
The hurt doesn't show, but the pain still grows;
it's no stranger to you or me...

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord...
Well, I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord...
And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord...
Well, I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord...
