I have always loved it, ever since Tabitha Yim used it for her FX during the Olympic season. I think it is one of those songs that can be dreadful but when the right person uses it, it is absolutely mesmerizing. It just pulls me in.

It's not even music.

It sounds like somebody scratching a blackboard.

Screw your uplifting bullshit and start deducting for that! :mad:

I don't hear any scratching noises in the music. :huh:

I dislike the blues genre anyway, so yes, I agree that this is wretched. It makes me feel like I should be in a very smoky environment, warm beer in hand, wishing my friends would materialize from wherever they've disappeared, and realizing how tired I'm going to be at work the next day.

I love Daisuke's skating, though. Just wish he had different music.

Dislike the music, but Daisuke made it HOT.

Yes, I could not agree more!!! Takahashi´s personality and interpretation of the music makes the entity fantastic.

I love the program! However, to help with the spirit of this thread: When Daisuke first skated the program this GP season (Skate Canada) and the music started, my husband calls from the other room "are you watching an 80's cop drama or Lethal Weapon in there?"

:lol:

The REAL Queen of Blues for Klook...Silvia Mitova.. Always unique and always underscored...

Daisuke's and U/Z interpretation are HOT... Dai's even more so since he is making us orgasm by his own self.. LOL..

I hate this music so very very much.

Maybe the distaste is because people are thinking Jerry Seinfeld is going to pop up at any moment during the program and say "What's with that, anyway"?

RFAD in ice dance was one of the reasons why the ISU passed the "uplifting" rule, wasn't it?

And then Weaver and Poje skates to Je suis malade :lol: just sayin..., you can pretty much use whatever music you want, but make the story behind it "uplifting", and it will work!

I think it was the whole collection of solemn funeral music in the free dances at the olympics that factored into that decision... (wasn't there a gunshot in Capellini/Lanotte's FD, or was that another team, but I know he was portraying a druggie at the very least...)

Personally, I loved those free dances, there was the dreamer themed one by P/B that used RFAD, so did D/S, weehee

Sorry. I liked the music in the '90s when Mitova used it. Liked it when Usova/Zhulin used it (wasn't that the year they won). I like it now with Takahashi skating to it.

This is one of my favorite programs for the last several years. I disagree with the poster that thought Takahashi's choreography wasn't "blues-like" I think he gets the blues part very well.

Obviously lots of skater like Blues for Klook. Yagudin used it also in a program (professional, not eligible) that I found incomprehensible. Takahashi made it more digestible for me but only a little.

Blues for Klook is GORGEOUS! sensual, chill, and -dare I say - orgasmic :smokin: and when someone like Takahashi interprets it... Oh yeah!

What he said!

I even enjoyed BFK when Elena Sokolova skated to it. :slinkaway:

Usova and Zhulin, Lucinda Ruh, and now Takahashi have done AMAZING things with this music. Takahashi's choreography captures the phrasing and nuance of this music perfectly.

On the other hand, when bad skaters decide to use it, it seems interminable.

U/Z's Blues for Klook is still one of my favorite programs ever. :swoon:

As far as other skaters using it, I'm kind of neutral. Like others have said, it depends on the skater and the choreography.
