I'm not sure if I ever saw that version of ADITL.

The SA version (I should have said "performance" in my last post, as it's the same music and choreo) originally aired on CTV. I don't know if it was broadcast on US television.

Klimova & Ponomarenko's '88 FD. Amazing lightness, unison, elegance, and it should have won the Olympics.

I don't know if it was broadcast on US television.US tv coverage of Grand Prix events was pretty sad -- they almost never showed any SP's -- even of Skate America. Kwan's wonderful debut of The Feeling Begins I saw online from someone's posting a clip from Chinese tv broadcast!

I've always enjoyed Johnny Weir's 2004 exhibition skate to Imagine. Was unable to find this early Johnny vid on youtube now.

I have this file on my computer. I will upload it when I get a chance if someone else doesn't find a link. It was a good performance, didn't she even get a 6.0?

Jarrett, thanks.
If it's on YT, I can't find it.

Johnny Weir's 'Imagine'

Scott Hamilton's 'When I'm sixty four'

Did Belbin-Agosto skate to Eleanor Rigby? I don't remember exactly.

OK. This is not a routine to Beatles' music and it wasn't written by Paul McCartney but it is kind of related and a very nice performance:

Takahashi and Tran's SP to Imagine (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGCiWKyDv1E)

Ooh! Loved that program! Vintage Scott!

Also agree about NavBom. Great program and completely underrated.

Jeremy Abbott's was amazing, too.

My favorite is Christopher Dean's "Eleanor's Dream" performed by both the Duchesnays and Crone/Poirier. I also liked Torvill/Dean's "Revolution" and the World's (Birmingham?) exhibition number by Alexei Urmanov to a Beatles medley.

I too liked Urmanov's skate to Beatles.

I've always enjoyed watching Urmanov. :)

(I do love Jeremy's Day in the Life skate too -- Shae Lynn's choreo is superb, an instant classic, skated to perfection by Jeremy everywhere except the 2010 Olympics, unfortunately)

SOI had an ensemble cast number to the Golden Slumbers medley quite a few years back.

Last year one of the Disson shows was Beatles program featuring the tribute band, Rain.
