So I just saw a preview clip for next week's Glee that features Aerosmith's "Dream On" and it just struck me that this would be an awesome FD. Has anybody ever used it before?

If not, who do you think would do a great interpretation? I think Virtue/Moir could totally pull it off, and I think Lang/Tchernyshev also would've done a great job with it.

Todd Gilles skated his FD to it a few years back - I think with his former partner Tina (?) Pratt.

Nice program- I remember liking it a lot.

That would be awesome, especially if they used the older version when Steven Tyler still had his voice.

Love Aerosmith, but I strongly dislike Glee so I'm sad they're gonna sing it.

Yes, that's what I meant to say in my original post. I love the original Aerosmith version; the Glee version, not so much.

love skating

It's not a competition program, but the Stars on Ice finale a few years back was to Dream On. I agree that it's nice skating music.

Again, not a competition piece, but four of the Dancing on Ice (UK) Pros did in 2008 on tour.

I actually really like this a lot!

Didn't Charlie and Meryl skate to it one year? The year Skate Canada was in Victoria..

I had freeskate music picked out for next year. Billy Joel's Piano Man

I'm not using it now because it's supposed to be on Glee next week too. Based on the instant popularity of anything that show does, I don't want to risk it showing up with the same song as a million other people. Guess I'll stick with my current program- Bette Midler's "I think it's going to rain today".

Anyone have a vid of Pratt/Gilles skating it?

Seems to be several versions of SOI’s finale on YouTube.
I didn't see SOI in person that year, but I distinctly remember the finale (on TV).

The Dancing on Ice routine mentioned above.
(I don't really know that much about this show - will have to check out more vids. Maybe it'll help with the skating withdrawal.)

And this song is a favorite of a fave skater of mine. Maybe she’ll skate an exhibition to it.
[Scroll waaaay down…]

Yes, as you may have guessed, I like the song :D - the lyrics aren't super great, but there's something haunting about it overall.

I don't remember Davis & White skating to it but I think they would do a good job if they did, because they did a good job with David Cook's remake of Billie Jean. I also think Kurt Browning could do it well. :-)

I'd like to see someone interpret Danny Gokey's version of the song.

Just watch Pratt/Gilles Dream on FD from 2006 NHK - it was really cool FD and they had brilliant tango in that season. Sad, they was split just after this competition :(
