    Re: The Main Street Electrical Parade in Disneyland, after 20 Years (2016)!

    I LOVE Baroque Hoedown, but I can see why other people would hate it after hearing it non-stop.

    I agree with you a little bit, but I believe that Baroque Hoedown shouldn't be removed completely. I know I'm going to get criticism for this, but what if they did a mix of Baroque Hoedown and the Spectromagic theme? I've never been to Walt Disney World and as a result I never saw Spectro in person but the theme is really cool in my opinion and it would be cool if they inserted it like an "interlude" to break up the Baroque Hoedown for say the middle of the parade for a nice break. Personally, I think the color changing LED's that they have now fit the parade fine, no real need to change to fiber optics.

    I know this thread is old, but I did a mix of the song very similar to what your are saying. https://soundcloud.com/mrcobra92/msep-remix-test-12 As long as the baroque hoedown is the same underlying theme, I don't care how they change it, just keep the core of the parade which was the music.

    This.

    Changing the music would like be like changing the theme to Star Wars. Unimaginable.

    Wow, that sounds really cool. Honestly, I'm open to them adding and changing things to the parade as long as Baroque Hoedown is there, but I feel like adding Spectro would make things really interesting and also give a way for that parade to somewhat live on. Your file is pretty much along the lines of what I was thinking it would be pretty neat if they did something like that.

    Aww, I thought this was confirmed news, but upon opening the thread I was immediately let down!

    I think if they get rid of the synthesizer, and play the same song with regular instruments it would be dramatically better.

    While the synthesizer has been a main part of the parade, I'd be open to possibly getting rid of it. The orchestral arrangement of Baroque Hoedown that they use at Paradise Pier is nice and it may just work with the parade.
