"Face the Music and Dance" from "Follow the Fleet" has been done by several ice dance teams, most notably by Torvil and Dean in the 94 Olympics. "Puttin'on My White Tie and Tails" gets sampled a lot by male skaters and dancers, especially the part where he shoots down the chorus line with his cane. Someone did it last season, but I can't remember whom.

Davis and White did "Phantom of the Opera" in 2010. Is anyone doing it this season? If not, that would be a record in itself.

Brian Boitano also did "An American in Paris
Kira Korpi did "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" from the "Wizard of Oz"
Sasha Cohen did "I Could Have Danced All Night" in COI (My Fair Lady)

Jenny Kirk did her 2004 SP to "Chicago" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAPqn71b5FY). IMO, this was one of her best performances and I remember thinking at the time that Jenny's dress was gorgeous and her overall look was very glam.

Sasha Cohen did Mein Herr (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATwSBlvwJRM) by incomparable Liza Minelli(god I love her!) from Cabaret in 2010. I was blown away by this performance on Youtube.

Absolutely fantastic and she put in a superb performance of it at the 2010 Japan Open as well:-

Far too many tango de Roxanne's to ever count, so I'm just going to list my fav: kwan's rumored sp from circa 2005 that never materialized. The myth had a life of its own.


I can't believe you forgot Yuna's Tango de Roxanne (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bYtM0vmtkM)(from Moulin Rouge), her senior debut short program which set the world record of 71 points at Worlds 07!

Here are numbers 16-25 from the AFI's list incorporating your suggestions:-

16. Funny Girl

Sadly, could not find the Dorothy Hamill version of Guys & Dolls on YouTube. However, I did locate Kurt Brownings version of Luck be a Lady:-

Caryn Kadavy skated to "Memory" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6Pk6ntOryc) for an exhibition at the 1986 Goodwill Games. Shizuka Arakawa (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RoJuvc08bEU) skated to the same song at various events in the autumn of 2004.

I don't know if this qualifies- Klimova & Ponomarenko skating to Mack the Knife from Three Penny Opera (not sure if that qualifies for a musical; I know it's a play by Bertolt Brech, but the song was written later)

Kristi & Rudy skated an exhibition to Cats in Sun Valley around 1988- I watched it in person; they were the junior world champions then. They wore costumes like cats for the ex. I don't know if a link is available for this on YT.

I've never seen that, but they must have loved their musicals because at Worlds in 1989 they were skating to Starlight Express for their exhibition. That used to be on youtube but seems to have disappeared,
