Blatant cash-grab aside, that Old Lang Syne rendition made me genuinely feelsy.

I liked everything but the terrible "12 days of Christmas". Yes, even the shit song about coal by the button mash wannabe was better than that. I'm a pinkiefag but her voice sounded off and it was a pretty stupid song. Applejack and Fluttershy had the best two songs hands down.
Yeah, the overuse of sound effects were a bit too much for me.
I get that it's for kids, but still. I remember what I was like as a kid, and I would have easily preferred Auld Lang Syne to that.
Actually listening to it again, I disagree. I get that many would find it annoying, but that finale was just so jubilant and energetic, that I couldn't help but find it uplifting.
I found it pretty dreadful throughout, and I usually like Ingram's stuff. I listen (in secret) to the Rainbow Rocks and Friendship Games OSTs a lot. It had a sort of 'contractual obligation' feel about it.
That said, I did agree with one Anon who suggested AJ's Old Lang Syne should be the theme tune we all sing when the show ends and /mlp/ shuts down for good.
