On January 23, with singing from EileMonty and MEMJ0123, Jeff Burgess published the original brony song, Home. With EileMonty of Picture Perfect Pony fame voicing a younger Luna and MEMJ0123 doing the same for a more maturely voiced Celestia, the duet shares a yearning relationship with each other and describes their wish to be reunited. This slow rock song executes and explores their relationship so well beyond anything the canon has showed post-Friendship Is Magic, Part II. Via Burgess's lyrics, both Celestia and Luna show their sisterly love for each other and desire to do "whatever it takes" to reunite. Even after one thousand years of separation, the lyrics capture the inseparable bond they have had long before the Elements of Harmony's successors via sadness, wishful happiness, their equal desire to permanently reunite in spite of Nightmare Moon corrupting part of Luna's conscience, and hope. But the lyrics wouldn't have any impact without some amazing music. It's a slow rock, but the melody masterfully sets the mood and overall tone of the song. It starts off very slow with an eventual introduction to the guitar and later speeds up, but the music never beats so quickly to retain the realistic mood in character to the two Princesses. In Friendship Is Magic, Part 2, Celestia and Luna share their inseparable bond that shows the brony audience how much they care for each other. Since then, however, we barely see that; but Home reverses this course, shining this deep, rich relationship shown beyond the canon through powerful lyrics sung by EileMonty and MEMJ0123 and amazing background music to correlate the helpful mood. Burgess took six months to compose the piece, and his patience pays off here.
