Many lighting fans are among the latter group and their decorations usually can be breathtaking. Don’t believe me? Take a look to the following examples and see it for yourself!
1 – The Nutcracker – The Mad Russian – Transiberian Orchestra
Christmas + classical music + loud distorted guitar + lights = this video. Do you think it’s a bad mix? Well, take a closer look. Taking two of the greatest classics songs of the Christmas season and combining with a great lights display takes a lot of effort but this one totally nailed it.
2 – High School Musical light show
Do you want a more modern tune? Here you go: a mix of songs from the popular teen show High School Musical synchronizes with an amazing set of Christmas lights to provide us with this amazing spectacle.
3 – Music Box Dancer – DJ Schwede
German electronic music and Christmas lights can compose quite a show, as you can check for yourself in this awesome video. A short song and a brief lighting display results in one of the best combinations on the list.
4 – 2001: A Space Odyssey
27,000 lights, 92 amps, 64 channels and Richard Strauss’ “Also Sprach Zarathustra” combined is the closest you can get to the experience of watching Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” for the first. Spectacular song, excellent lighting display.
5 – Raining Blood – Slayer
If you thought that the Transiberian Orchestra and their rendition of classical music with distorted guitars was a little bit loud for you and your Christmas spirit, wait to see this. A classic song from one of the Big 4 of Thrash gets its lighting display: sure, the idea of blood falling from a lacerated sky isn’t very Christmas-like but the video is great.
6 – Wizards of Winter – Transiberian Orchestra
Now that you’ve watched Slayer’s display, you can go back to the Orchestra. 128 sets of lights are combined and arranged to the sound of fat power chords in a dazzling display of creativity and hard work.
7 – Carol of the Bells – August Burns Red
In case you didn’t know, somewhere in this world there’re Christian Metalcore bands. That’s right, artists playing distorted guitar and fast riffs with positive-vibe lyrics. Among these there’s a band called August Burns Red and here’s what their music combined with lights sounds (and looks) like.
8 – Christmas Light Hero
How would it be to play Guitar Hero using your garage’s door as a screen? Well, this is video should give you some idea. A fretboard composed of lights and an amazing tune by the awesome Eric Johnson is definitely something that would lift my Christmas spirits up.
9 – 12 Days of Christmas – The Muppets
What would be of Christmas without the Muppets? The infamous puppet characters sings their “12 Days of Christmas” song while the lights go with the rhythm on a very special Christmas gift.
10 – Disney’s 50th anniversary light show
Another astonishing set of lights combined with the music from the beloved company Disney. The notes and arrangements are acclimated with an incredible lights set of over 30,000 Christmas lights and 400 strobes to bring a spectacular closure to this list.
Now it’s time to sit down and relax while watching this videos and enjoying their tunes. However, the makers of these light displays surely must worry about something after the Christmas season is over: how much will they pay for their electric bill?
