    I'm loving the early information. Never understood why everyone was always so secretive before. It's an Olympic year- throw down the gauntlet!!!!

    Carter Jones/Richard Sharpe - Senior ice dance - Team GB

    "Our short dance this year is a medley of an English singer, Robbie Williams. We will be starting with his version of "Let's Face the Music and Dance" (quickstep) followed by a very fitting foxtrot for our partnership called "Have You Met Miss Jones." For our free dance we have chosen to travel to the other end of the music spectrum. We are combining an orchestral version of "Roxanne" by Maga Zoltan, mixed with a slow piece by Escala, "Finding Beauty"."

    They go on to say...

    "The piece of music that we both have had a strong passion for is Roxanne. We were concerned with the popularity and over-use of the original song, but when we found this version, it allowed us to use the music but enabled us to tell our own story to it."

    A question re Duhamel/Radford. Does anyone happen to know which Alice and Wonderland they're using? There have been multiple movies made with that name/theme.

    Piper did a FD to an actual Hitchcock movie soundtrack a few seasons ago with Zach Donohue. Interesting.
    I'm looking forward to seeing G/P's take on Hitchcock. :)

    It is the Danny Elfman soundtrack (the latest movie).

    The interesting thing is that the team hasn't even started the choreography for this program yet. When Vaitsekhovskaya's article came out, I think only Meagan, Eric, and their choreographer really had the idea for it/knew about it. She must be the ultimate spy :lol:

    Love the "Alice In Wonderland" choice and that Eric is composing music for the other program - very interesting choices that will certainly make them stand out. The statement about no skater ever composing music for their own program is erroneous - Dimitri Dimetrenko did throughout his career, and I know there have been others as well, they are just eluding me at the moment..

    Here's the relevant excerpt from the Scimeca/Knierim article, linked above:
    Adam Rippon's tweets today seem to indicate that his short program is being choreographed by Cindy Stuart:

    Well, if nothing else I have to admit Adam has good taste. Just a couple of months ago I was saying Cindy Stuart is vastly underrated (also underrated is Sheryl Franks).

    Kiri Baga confirmed on Twitter yesterday that YAS alum Garrett Kling choreographed her SP (music is "Dark Eyes"). Baga is listed in USFS' International Selection Pool for both singles and pairs.

    There's a thread in the Trash Can for posting program music suggestions and fun hypotheticals, BTW: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/sho...horeographer-suggestions-for-Olympic-programs

    The Skating Lesson posted a video link of Alissa Czisny performing a run through of her free skate last week without jumps - see: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/sho...-Any-Updates&p=3916101&viewfull=1#post3916101

    ^^ Well, let's hope Czisny's chances aren't GWTW. I like the choice of music, but the title's connotations not so much.

    ^^ Eh, true perhaps, but Keys' Fallin' theme is about falling in love and I've only seen skaters use that piece of music for exhibitions. Vise/Baldwin's Legends of the Fall is really more about the season and the legends, but point taken. ;)

    GWTW has melancholy connotations all the way around, but I suppose it is also about the feisty fortitude of its heroine, which indeed suits Alissa very much. And the music is definitely lovely. :)

    I love Alissa and her skating, but I loathe GWTW. Having said that, I'm thrilled that she is competing this season. Do we know what her SP music is?
