As Kiteman said, it depends. Do you want to make them blink to your music, or do you want them to be turn off and on with a computer?

Sorry, I didn't read your question, only the title. I followed this 'ible(link below) to make mine do dance to music. Also, I used a different relay(link below)to make this.

Link to the relay you should buy instead of the one required in the 'ible:
