I'd rather toss my panties to Daisuke skating to Blues for Klook than to Patrick Chan any day.....and I vastly prefer the music of Aranjuez to Blues for Klook.

I can't believe how many of you are soulless. :drama: I love Blues and I love this program for Takahashi. Better than anything he's ever done.

I do love blues but I don't have to like every blues tune I hear. I do admit that Daisuke helped me appreciate Klook more.

The real question is: Who, exactly, is Klook, and why does he or she merit the blues?

^It might be this guy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenny_Clarke):

Kenny Clarke (January 9, 1914 – January 26, 1985), born Kenneth Spearman Clarke, nicknamed "Klook" and later known as Liaqat Ali Salaam, was a jazz drummer and an early innovator of the bebop style of drumming. As the house drummer at Minton's Playhouse in the early 1940s, he participated in the after hours jams that led to the birth of Be-Bop, which in turn led to modern jazz. While in New York, he played with the major innovators of the emerging bop style, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Curly Russell and others, as well as musicians of the prior generation, including Sidney Bechet.

I've always hated how the music grates, but there is no piece of music out there with more soul. :smokin: You have to feel this music, ITA with BigB that when the right person does it (I.E.this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7IEuEQahiY&feature=related)), it takes you somewhere and puts you :inavoid:

Two of my all-time favorite gymnasts have used it as well (Silvia Mitova and Tabitha Yim), so I will never hate it!

But yeah it's definitely not easy on the ears if you are expecting something lyrical, I still love the quirkiness of it though.

These kitties seem to like it:

Like the music but love Takahashi's interpretation of every nuance in the piece. It just works - for me, that is. :cool:

Obviously lots of skater like Blues for Klook. Yagudin used it also in a program (professional, not eligible) that I found incomprehensible.

Here it is:


I saw it live the first time he skated it and the audience loved it. Bizarre, but very interesting and entertaining. :lol:

I love Dai so he could skate to a recording of someone taking a dump and i would applaud. I dont really care for the music though. Perhaps if there was a piano or saxaphone planying the solo instead of that wretched instrument, it would be better
