Music Monday – Trans Siberian Orchestra

Posted by on Mon, December 24th, 2012 at 9:00 am

Hey everyone, it’s Ashley.  I am currently in Arizona visiting my family for the holidays.  Last night, we went to the Phoenix Zoo for the ZooLights exhibit.  It was such a beautiful and festive experience.  You walk around the zoo and there are thousands of lights around you, either covering the trees or shaped into zoo animals.  My favorite part, though, besides the delicious Hot Chocolate, was the light show set to the Trans Siberian Orchestra.  It was setup on a lake, so all of the lights reflected in the water.  It was so magical.  So for today’s Music Monday, I thought I would share one of my favorite videos of Christmas Lights set to the Trans Siberian Orchestra.  Enjoy!

 

Merry Christmas!

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty well-versed in the world of Madonna.  I can remember driving down the street with my girlfriends, top down, big hair blowing in the breeze, and Madonna blasting through the speakers of my classic VW Bug convertible.  Madonna’s second studio album, Like A Virgin, was released exactly 28 ...
