I put in all three votes for Phantom of the Opera.

Without a doubt - Carmen. Katarina Witt did the definitive version and its been overused ever since.

Carmen. I actually like the other ones.

I could do without "Somewhere in Time" for a long time. And "Chicago".

Turandot is my number 1 choice. I got burned out on it when Meno/Sand skated to it for a number of seasons.

How is Requiem for a Dream not on here?? I vote to triple ban it, that's how tired of it I am :lynch:

It's "Tosca" for me. Yet another "E Lucevan le Stelle" gives me a toothache. There's plenty of other great music to mix in from the opera though, should one wish to do so.
But even more so, there should be a "Requiem for a Dream" category. I'd happily vote to ban it for a five- year period.

Masquerade Waltz. I used to love it, but after the last couple of years I'd happily not hear it again for a long time (doesn't help that a girl at our rink is using it so I hear it at least twice a week at the moment).

And I hope to heck I don't ending up hating Swan Lake after this coming season. It's my favourite music, and I don't want to dislike it (it's also being used by a young girl at the rink - young enough that I presume she hasn't actually seen Black Swan!).

I love Masquerade Waltz and I'm so happy when we practice to this music :)

Carmen, Swan Lake and Tosca. The rest of them, too.

Add me to the Luurves Masquerade Waltz list.

Blues for Klook :scream: I just hate it!

Me too! That and 'The Feeling Begins' are my equivalent of being water-boarded. As a 3rd option for torture, I'd add the Nino Rota 'Romeo & Juliet' film score ("A Time for Us"), though it's not as grating as the first two.

Carmen is my number one for obvious reasons; it's like the most used piece of music in figure skating history!

The overuse of Scheherazade has reached it's peak. I'm really sick of hearing it.

To be honest, those are the only two I wouldn't mind ever hearing again...I can deal with the rest.

None should be banned. It's a good way, IMO, to compare past & present skaters & their choreographers.

This is really funny. I was so sure that at least Carmen should be banned. Last night I watched Debbie Thomas's skate to Carmen at the US nationals, and I thought, this is really great music for figure skating! Now I am confused- to ban or not to ban? :lol:
