What does everyone use for their beginning show sequence?

Recommended Posts

I can't say I've ever had somebody just waiting for the show to start.  I do have a Minion countdown sequence that plays at the beginning of my loop of songs.  I doubt they know it's the actual opening sequence once the loop starts playing though.

My lights go on before it gets dark. There is never anyone here waiting for the first song.  I want people to self spread themselves out instead of bunching up for specific hours when lights are on.

My first song of the night is one that tests every set of lights and pixels in the entire display so I can use it as a welfare check to see if everything is working.  Often, I'm the only person out there at that time.  Then I keep it in the rotation with every other song on the playlist.  Here's the one I've used for a few years now.  It's both a welcome announcement and a song.  The music begins around 1:15.

It’s now my first song too. And of course, this is one of George’s great ones that inspired me to build the House Face this year. And if the sequencing looks familiar, well, why try to improve on perfection? Buy it here: http://clearwaterlights.org/SeqSaleInfo.html

Well mine starts out with Bugs Bunny saying " Isn't it wonderful what you can do with some wire and a few electric bulbs "  being spoken by my singing tree's then the full show starts with Demented Elf giving out the customary rules like be nice to my neighbors, no trash,no loud music,keep your lights off, the usual stuff.

I use the THX opening.   You can see last year's version; I moved this year and haven't made a video of the new layout yet.

I also have my "opening" loop in the show.  This year it's "The Final Countdown."  It's different every year.  I've used THX, Christmas Vacation, I've put together a few excerpts together using Audacity.  So far everyone's favorite has been Christmas Vacation.
