Several people have mentioned Hisaishi, and I so want Howl's Moving Castle to be used (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5tTiYT1cgU)! Beautiful music, several changes of tempo, very dancey.

I have visions of vintage Hollywood or old Soviet films (the good, iconic ones) and (pre-Gaga) Johnny Weir.

I would really love to see someone skate to Prokofiev's Second Piano Concerto. Specifically, the first movement. If it is edited well, I think it could work.

Kristiene Gong, it was her SP.

??? She skated to flamenco music (about 24 min into the ladies Nationals SP). Her LP was Salome. Help?? Would love to hear whatever/whoever it was who skated to Spirited Away. (I heard that a JGP dance team skated to Howl's Moving Castle but couldn't find any vid, as they were too obscure :)).

Kristiene Gong skated her 2009-10 SP to "One Summer's Day" from the Spirited Away soundtrack.

Jenni Vähämaa's 2008-09 SP was to the theme from Howl's Moving Castle.

"Inception" needs to be used this coming season. What a powerful soundtrack.

Oh yess!! Would make a great free skate.

I've always wanted to see a program - SP, probably - to the opening theme from Oshima's 'Gohatto'. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrUK37WdnWc&playnext=1&list=PL6B524BD7B195EDE6)

I think "Inception" would be very nice choice for Joubert.
I really want to see someone use music from "Les Choristes".

I love all of the recommendations for Brian to skate to the soundtrack from INCEPTION, that would be AWESOME!!! But also what if he skated to TRON!!!

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!)

I just remember when Tomas was younger some commentators (Scott & Sandra?) compared him to Kulik.

RiB is a good because it's jazzy yet classical, and would be best suited for a male skater that can portray boyish innocence and power at the same time. I think where Evan failed was that he wasn't able to pull of the boyish innocence bit (the 5 o'clock shadow greasy mechanic look doesn't help).

Maybe Michal can do this piece as well, but after American in Paris I want him to stay far far away from jazz next season. Tomas and Gershwin just seem to go together... I would assume he'd just wear a blue shirt, as blue and black are his go-to colours it seems.

I can't have Tomas skate to something so overused as RiB... I'd have to :lynch: him.
He knows my opinion too, but of course he doesn't have to listen to that. ;)

*Coldplay - In My Place (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgSEgwmF-JY) and Fix You (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skUJ-B6oVDQ). Not necessarily good program choices on their own, but if combined with each other or other Coldplay choices, one could create quite a profound and provocative program.


Have you ever seen Ice Theater of NY's Dare Greatly (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBJI3E1UD6w) program -done to an instrumental vesion of Fix You? I saw it live at EWC last year and thought it was very effective, even on its own. I do agree it would be nice to see skaters pick more contemporary pieces, even from classical music, instead of Malaguna v.2,399,876. I though Mme White Snake, the opera, had some very pretty slow sections.

Agree with this! Plus doesn't Lysacek "own" RiB? So I'm not sure it would be a smart move for any male skater to use it this soon.

I've said this before, but..

I'd love to see Davis & White skate to a compilation of Fiddler on the Roof songs. "sabbath prayer","Miracle of Miracles", "Sunrise Sunset", and "Chava's song".

I just love Fiddler on the Roof. Has it been used as a fd?
