"Seasons of Love" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6yPSeDlcrI) popped up earlier today when I was shuffling through my iPhone, and I realized it's been 15 years since "Rent" debuted on Broadway.

i'm shocked you endorse something about a bunch of freeloaders who don't pay their bills ;)

Seriously, it's very danceable, in a modern way... assuming you have top-notch talent who can put in the effort and can dance. ;)

Specifically, I'm thinking Virtue/Moir. :shuffle:

I'd love some male skater like probably Brian Joubert use the soundtrack of the 1952 version of Ivanhoe (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIO-lZAgPMk) (only the trailer but it contains the main theme).

Maybe Mao could do both? I mean we saw her dark side with "Bells".

i would love to see mao skate to black swan, but not this year since many have chose it for this upcoming season...

I'd like to see...
Ksenia Makarova or Akiko Suzuki skate to Promenades Au Bois by Alain Goraguer:

Tomas Verner skate to Burial by Miike Snow for a show program:

Kurt Browning or Takahiko Kozuka skate to Cosmic Dance by Kuchiroro featuring Halcali for a show program:
expecting tons of intricate footwork.

Mao Asada skate to The Adventures of Chatran (or "Milo and Otis") Opening Theme by Ryuichi Sakamoto:

Not sure who (singles or pairs) could pull this music off, but Thomas Newman's[/I] soundtrack from The Green Mile is a treasure trove of amazing music. A couple of examples

The Green Mile - Ending Credits (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZX3tlJbaaE&feature=feedwll&list=WL) (several different themes throughout it).
The Green Mile - John Coffey On The Mile (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32l9go1e1HU&feature=BFa&list=WLB560776E8EA6A71C&index=12)
The Green Mile - Main Theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPw1zREIvak&feature=BFa&list=WLB560776E8EA6A71C&index=11)
The Green Mile - Night Journey/Punishment/Now Long Gone (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVzaXw7EXLA&feature=related)

Incidentally, Thomas Newman has composed some amazing film scores over the years (some already used for skating, most, however, untapped), including:

- American Beauty
- The Shawshank Redemption
- Unsung Heroes
- The Road To Perdition
- Little Women
- In The Bedroom
- Finding Nemo
- Meet Joe Black
- Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events
- Fried Green Tomatoes
- The Good German
- Revolutionary Road
- The Horse Whisperer
- Erin Brockovich
- Scent Of A Woman
- Angels In America
- White Oleander

Check out the music suite from Fried Green Tomatoes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gINPMWVHhpM) - it's crammed with great stuff with varying tempos, styles, and moods, and with the right skater, could be an epic program.

……And for us old farts :P who came of age in the 80s, Newman also scored The Lost Boys, Revenge of the Nerds, Reckless (watching Aidan Quinn and Daryl Hannah wreck the HS office, dancing around the place and getting nekkid in the school pool while rocking out to Kim Wilde's "Kids In America (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TgT-lfu1BXc) and Romeo Void's "Never Say Never" never gets old :respec: ), Real Genius (still :rofl: to this day), Desperately Seeking Susan, Less Than Zero, The Great Outdoors, and countless other cheesy (and not-so-cheesy) movies of that decade.

OT, but how has this guy been nominated for the Best Original Score Academy Award *nine* times without winning even once? :confused: …And on a weirder note, why do I always hear Principal Ed Rooney's voice whenever I see/read the phrase "nine times" :lol: ??)

An ice dance team with a sense of humor (Pechalat and Bourzat?) should do an exhibition to this:

One of them should wear a snorkel, the other an inner tube. :lol:

I don't have the energy to wade through 11 pages of posts to see if it's been mentioned before (lol!) but I would really love to see someone skate to this.

Homage to the Rabbits (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7IefY70b1s)

It's music from Criss Angel's show in Vegas, which features dancers and performers from Cirque de Soleil. I heard this music for the first time when dancers from the show performed on So You Think You Can Dance (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNSw9bRP5n4&feature=related) a few years ago. The dance was choreographed by Wade Robson (amazing choreographer) and it was fantastic.

The music would be difficult to skate to, but a really brilliant choreographer could edit it and do something really special with this. It's a bit quirky and a little dark and mysterious...I think it'd make an awesome SP for someone...

Watching The Hours and thinking what a fabulous soundtrack for skating. One track mind.

I love this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tUq8Q_b8Lg

I love that music too, hasn't Zhang once had a sp to 'The Hours'? It's a lovely piece of music.

I absolutely adore the 'Doors Concerto' by Nigel Kennedy. He is amazing and that interpretation of 'The Doors' music is my favorite. This year a male skater is performing to one piece from that cd. I especially loved what Kennedy did with 'Light my fire' and 'Riders in the Storm' and often imagined various skaters performing to them:

Light my Fire:

Riders in the Storm

Christina Gao's 2009-10 short program music was "Morning Passages" from The Hours.

11-02-2011, 08:24 AM
Oh, it was Gao not Zhang. Thank you for the correction. :)

I posted a blog entry (http://jennifercomeaux.blogspot.com/2011/11/little-ice-music.html) with some music I'd love to see skaters use for competitive and exhibition programs.

It seems to have gone out of fashion a little, I haven't seen a RiB program for quite a while. All the same, it would be interesting to see if anyone can match Kulik's interpretation (although I preferred his Reprise of it two years later than his Olympic performance - the only difference between the two was that he didn't do a quad in the reprise).

...No-one, however, will ever match the epic that was the costume. GIRAFFE?!?!?!? :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

(If anyone can ever explain the giraffe shirt to me, please do!)

Didn't Ilia once say his mom made the shirt? :lol:
