There, I said it.
I never got it. Yeah, its kind of cool. When it first came out it was probably totally cutting edge, but im almost 40 now, and I can't imagine how even in the 70s it was cutting edge...
I guess I might have some residual effects from being a kid and just wanting to go on rides at Disenyland at like 10pm while the lines were lower, but my parents made us watch it and I had to sit there and watch a bunch of Christmas lights on floats go by with bad 80s synth music. I actually think now I would be more stoked to see it today, due to the memories of being a kid (forced to) see it.
Now when I go to Disneyland I actually appreciate the entertainment, the ambiance and artistry more than the actual rides, so I see what my parents were doing, but really, what is the deal with the Electric Light parade? I should also include the fact that I hate all parades (except drum lines, marching bands and drill team girls).
