  • Music of the Night in The Phantom of the Opera: "Turn your face away/from the garish light of day./Turn your thoughts away from cold unfeeling light."
  • Evil Angel by Breaking Benjamin.
    • Evil Angel is also the name of a song by Rufus Wainwright.
  • "Tornado of Souls" by Megadeth.
  • Lady Gaga's video for "Bad Romance." White walls and furnishings, bright lighting, lots of white and/or sparkly costumes, and the plot (as far as the audience can tell) involves slavery and murder.
    • "Alejandro" has her character as dressing white, saint like robes; depending on who you ask, she was meant to represent the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy (although, if you're an homophobe, she would probably be your hero). And the infamous ending had her face melting away while her eyes and mouth were replaced by light; many will be glad to inform you of how terrifying that looked.
  • "Lights will guide you home/And ignite your bones
  • From, ironically enough, "In The Dark Of The Night": "Let your evil shine!".
  • Descent of the Archangel by Kamelot.
  • Though it's hard to decipher the exact meaning, the narrator of Fleet Foxes' "The Shrine/An Argument" seems to have a strong aversion to sunlight.
