Here is a simple scene file with a dynamic swinging ceiling lamp with forces.
Edit the Lamp Outline Spline to change the lamp shape.
You can rotate the initial position of the lamp with the null object named Lamp Controller under the Fracture Object but you need to parent the light under the null before or else it will not follow. The Light Placement for Light Rotation shows the proper way to do this. The light must be in its original position to render correctly.
You can enable different forces or change their parameters to get different movements. Enable the 'Enable Dynamics>>>' object to turn dynamics on and off.
35 degress is the maximum amount of lamp rotation unless you edit the socket.
PS. Sorry for the long notes in the scene file, I wanted to make sure I covered everything.
