Here's a song that IMHO would make a beautiful exhibition piece for Meryl and Charlie. A rather morbid title, but such a pretty melody and don't get me started on their harmony!

"If I Die Young" Cover by Michael Henry and Justin Robinett

OMG Doris, I love this song to pieces! Well, I'm actually a fan of the original, but I have to admit this is an amazing cover, more gentle and romantic and surely more suitable for skating too.

The title might be morbid, but it's actually such a beautiful song. It's all sad and full of hope at the same time, I love the lyrics. It almost makes me at peace with the idea of dying young... if I ever have to.

damn, I hope it didn't sound too melodramatic :P I'd love Meryl and Charlie to skate to it, I'm sure they could make it another masterpiece, just like Adele.

I love Sting. I could see this one for an exhibition:

That song (Mad About You) was part of one of my favorite exhibitions of all time - Silverstein and Pekarek's Sting exhibition. It's not on YouTube but I posted it on my blog awhile back here. (http://jennifercomeaux.blogspot.com/2011/09/ice-dance-its-shizzle.html)

I love that exhibition, i'd forgotten how much Dick Button thought of them. Sigh, what could have been.

I like the ending to Fragile.

Thanks for the link…that was really good. The idea of a medley hadn't even occurred to me. That was quite cleverly done. I know it would probably fall under "oldies" but it would lessen the chances of someone else skating to it. (e.g. Adele or Rhythm of Love) :D

I loved the version of Fragile they used, too. It was from the Living Seas (the IMAX movie) soundtrack. I wouldn't mind seeing an exhibition using just that piece.

Wow, thanks for that link. Haven't heard these guys but they are amazing, love their harmony.

Meryl and Charlie simply need to skate to Sting. Or Tori Amos. Something to bring out that inner passion that we saw in Eleanor Rigby. They are so much more mature in their skating now and have improved so much since ER...I shiver just thinking about seeing them skating ER now.

Love that song Davis&WhiteFan! I do actually like that cover better than the original. And that never happens for me lol.

ITA that Meryl and Charlie need to skate to sting. And I was actually just listening to Tori Amos on my way home from work! (thank you MK for introducing me to the awesome song Winter)

I wonder if they've ever thought of skating to Santana? I was trying to think if Santana has ever been used in the skating world before, and I could only think of one example off the top of my head (it's still a great one!)

Jeremy Abbott: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkS69HHQDgA I LOVE this program, still one of my favorites from him.

But does anyone think that 'Samba Pa Ti' would suit Meryl and Charlie? There's just such a :cool: , almost sensual quality to it, IMO. It'd be awesome to see what they could do with something like this. ETA: Sorry, having trouble adding the link!

Brooke and Ben did a Santana SP in 09-10. Amanda and Mark did Black Magic Woman for their SP a few years ago. And there were a bunch of 0ye Como Va's in the 06 Latin OD year. I remember singing that song all through St. Louis Nats, lol.

I had forgotten about this program. Thanks for the link T&BFan. The end of Silverstein & Pekarek is something I think I will never get over. Their potential was unbelievable. It hurts to think of what might have been. :(

I remember being totally distraught over their breakup, too. I think I watched "Great Expectations" over and over and kept thinking how really great they could have been. If only...

Fortunately Meryl and Charlie have far exceeded all my expectations for US ice dance and any disappointment from the past have long since disappeared for me. They were so worth waiting for!

Wonderful tribute from Jean-Christophe Berlot on Icenetwork.com:

Best single performance [of 2011-2012 season]: Davis and White's free dance in Nice. When some tumble on twizzles, they accelerate. Their feet are the fastest of all; their moves are the most precise of the field. Their free dance was a monument, and the audience's vibrant concentration throughout even dramatized it. They will not be in the gold medal book this year, but they will remain as the emeritus 2012 world champions forever. If the best performance is the one one remembers because one could not even breathe and felt one's heart go "bang bang," then it is theirs. :saint:
