WTDW: What's the Deal with... "Tricks Up My Sleeve"

Sunny Fox

591 views

Let's face it.... there are two songs from Rainbow Rocks, (one sung by RD and one sung by ... ugh... Trixie) that are pretty pedestrian, compared to such gems as "Welcome to the Show" and "Let's Have a Battle". Neither RD nor Trixie are exactly my favorite characters, and their respective songs don't do them any real favours in that respect.

But for this entry, I'll focus on Trixie's "boast song". And it contains this wonderful line:

"You're from the past, I'm from the Space Age..."

Ummm.... Trixie, darling... you do realize the Space Age started in 1957,right? So I don't know quite what you're trying to get across here.

Yeah, this entry is pretty thin on content... Oh well, stay sunny side up anyway...

At first I disliked Awesome as I Wanna Be for dragging RD's character through the muck, but then I realized that Rainbow Rocks did that to more or less every character that wasn't Twilight or Sunset. After that, I began to enjoy the song in a "haters gon' hate" way. Still don't care much for Tricks Up My Sleeve, though. It's basically Awesome as I Wanna Be minus the energy.

This, incidentally, is why Friendship Games > Rainbow Rocks imo.

The Humane Unspecified-number aren't really the focus of the first two movies, so it's natural they'd be less well-rounded than the native Equestrians. As you say, Friendship Games is really the first movie that is free to focus a bit more on them. I just found the stakes of that movie far lower than RR, or even the first one.
