Can I make LEDs flash to the beat when my iPod plays to a speaker? Answered

can I make a circuit with 2 LEDs, a resistor, and a battery pack, and make the LEDs flash to the beat when my iPod plays to a speaker?  I'm making a mau5head (look it up) and aim to put LEDs in the eyes. I will play music, dance around, etc. I want the LED's to sync with the music.

Your ipod would probably be powerfull enough to power the leds, just make a connection out of your ipod and wire it to your leds. You might want to make sure that you have a volume control on your speakers so that you can have more power going to your leds, but you could still turn your speakers down if you wanted to.
