West side story music is skaters' favorite. Pick your favorite 3 performances to it.

Something I never thought I'd say with any great concern, but here 'tis: There's no Witt in this poll.

Dushenays by a gigantic margin.
To be frank, I really can't remember programs other than remebering that Alissa Czisny's one had a nice music cut.

I can't believe I forgot Katarina's skate to WSS in 1987! It was my most favorite performance of hers. Is it possible to change the poll options and replace someone with Katarina Witt?

I voted other as my favourite was Moiseeva & Minenkov's FD to WSS at the 1978 Worlds (in spite of the fall at the end). It wasn't the most difficult FD but it was stunning artistically.

I voted for Duchesnays, Davis, and Suzuki.

None of the others are memorable to me. In some cases I don't even remember that that skater used that music.

Oops, forgot I was supposed to vote for my top 3. I guess my other 2 besides Moiseeva & Minenkov would be Akiko Suzuki's FS (but at the 2009-2010 GPF) and perhaps Witt's FS at the 1987 Worlds.

Since I forgot to list Katarina Witt (shame on me!:lol:), I picked G&G, Bowman and Cohen. If I were to do it again, I would replace Cohen with Witt. Sasha's program to WSS at Marshalls was really good, but I don't think she ever used it in a competition. I don't know if she even skated it again.

I love G&G's skate to WSS as pro. They suddenly looked very mature and very happy.

Aboit Tai & Randy's skate- I saw it on TV somewhere around 1988-89 as part of a program that showed great exhibition/pro skates from the past. It was a beautiful skate to 'Somewhere (there will be a time for us)'. I don't know if it's on YT. I have it on a tape so I did not look for YT.

bronze - Witt, for the costume, totally unrelated to WWS but she made it work)

silver - Witt, for her best constructed lp (it comes close to redeeming her abysmal 87 sp, honestly, wtf was up with that getting first?)

gold - Witt, for her best ever single performance (worlds 87) always a bit on the lazy side it was nice to see her pushed for a change and rising to the challenge.
