Well, I wouldn’t go too far in thinking Grant’s a full-fledged brony like us, but he told me through Twitter that he and his daughter watch MLP:FIM and that he enjoys the show along with his daughter. He enjoys the show so much that when asked by me if he’d be interested in composing a song for the show he expressed delight and is willing to compose for MLP:FIM. The only problem? Obviously Hasbro and the team behind MLP:FIM has to express interest back to Grant in order for him to compose something for the show.
For those who don’t know who Grant Kirkhope is, he is the man responsible for composing some of the best soundtracks in video game history. He composed for such video games as “Banjo-Kazooie”, “Banjo-Tooie”, “GoldenEye”, “Perfect Dark”, and “Donkey Kong 64.” I’m sure if your like me and grew up in the ’90s with a Nintendo 64, then you might’ve played a Rare game. Besides those games being beyond awesome and well-structed, the music behind all those games must’ve left a lasting impression on our minds for those who’ve played them. The music from all those games was some of the catchiest and or intense music I’ve ever heard come from a video game. For those who’ve never heard these video game soundtracks, you are sadly missing out on some of the best music from video games.
Now, what I and Grant need from this community of bronies is to generate enough buzz for Grant so that Hasbro and or the team behind MLP:FIM will notice Grant’s interested in composing a song for them. I actually remember Grant saying that he’d love to compose for TV and or movies, that it’s something he longs to do, but sadly that has never come full circle for him. So please, I need this community to generate buzz for Grant! Don’t we all want some Banjo-Kazooie-esque MLP:FIM song? Make it happen bronies!
