do the spring clips rub on the door and scratch the paint off?
No. Aluminum J hooks are adhered to the back of the top of the banner. They are approx. 1 1/2" wide flat aluminum stock bent into a J shape to slip over the top edge of the garage door. The same J hooks are attached by a thin cord along the bottom to clip under the bottom edge of the garage door. On the bottom of the banner, adhered to the back, are plastic slides with a spring inside for tension connected to the other end of the cords. The tensioners keep it tight and allow you to open the door. I have had no damage/scratches to my door from any of the hardware...just slips on and off to mount. The banner material is so thick that mine does not flap in the wind at all.
I made a similar design for Halloween to black out the door. I used heavy black plastic sheeting, fixed it to the bottom edge of the door and then wrapped it over the top edge of the door. Inside, I use bungee cords to hold the top tight, yet allow it to move while opening/closing the door. My monster bottom teeth are adhered to the bottom of the plastic and top teeth hang from the house trim. Giant monster teeth and yet have a full functioning garage door.Edited by qberg

I guess I'm thinking more about the sequencing and the light display rather than the choice of music. Seems like most displays I've seen flash the lights in beat to the music. But there's got to be something less, uh, flashy...maybe. Or maybe it's all in my head. Again, I don't what I'm looking for.
But, please, post videos!
I have a modest 16-channel setup (growing to 32 channels this year) and focus primarily on traditional or 'slower' Christmas music with a light show that has less of a 'Techno Dance Party' feel to it. Like you I really enjoy seeing them, but I like to keep my own show toned down a bit. Here are three of the sequences I put together in 2015...
