I have been itching to start a poll, so here it is (may be it was posted in the past, but I don't remember).

'The feeling begins' is another favorite skating music. Which ONE program/performance is your favorite?

ETA: I thought Yagudin had skated to this music, but I could not find it on YT, so I was not 100 percent sure that he had. That's why I did not add his name to the poll. He would have gotten many votes, but I had to be sure.

Kwan, hands down. She really "got" it. And I wasn't even a fan but that program was a masterpiece.

As much as I was not really a fan to G&P, I think their Feeling Begins was probably their masterpiece and really was a fantastic FD.

For me Kwan just skated through the music. She used it to motivate her but didn't use the music.

As I recall from my lurking, you couldn't stand Kwan at the time. Of course, Cohen appeared on the rise at the time.

I can only remember two of these programs - G/P and Oksana Baiul. I liked them both. I dont think I could pick a favorite between these 2.

G&P were extraordinary on this music. The choreography was excessively difficult, full of moves and technical tricks. Each movement was like a little painting. Their program went faster and faster until the very end with the dramatic ending. What a masterpiece ! And their inetrpretation was simply unmatched. Oksana has such a magnetic charisma and she really moved her body from head to toes.
No other program can be compared to this masterpiece.

Definetely G&P, especially their Europeans performance, WOW!!! In my opinion Kwan could not handle that music at all. Oksana Baiul´s performance I have not watched, yet. Generally I would say that Baiul could handle any music.

Grishuk & Platov, by far.
An amazing progam. I still watch it with the same emotion and intensity. Very complex and intricate choreography. I admire their lines, the fact that their 2 bodies appears sometimes just as one.

G&P by far.
It was one of iconic moments in this sport.

Grischuk/Platov at Europeans.It had an unbelievable intensity and I can't enjoy any other program to that music after that without thinking about it.

He called it “Passion”.
