update: I tried with all my songs and yes I know it doesn't work with every song. I just think it works if you play the song on time or it works with some sort of upbeat song. But yea, it doesn't work perfectly like you would expect.
Glow sticks in the pool, great for night swimming! Not sure this would be the best idea for a big in ground pool (would probably take a couple hundred sticks), but would definitely be cool in a kid pool or an above ground pool!
