    IMO Daisuke can skate to any kind of music, so why not the Beatles?

    Great split flip. Probably in his choreo sequence?!

    I agree. As generic or cliched an uninspired Lori can be, with the right skater, she can work magic. Morosov's routines just don't have the coherency or depth for a skater like Takahashi.

    ^ Thank you so much for the clips! I love to watch choreographers work with skaters ... so interesting to get a glimpse of how the puzzle is put together. Dai looks to be in a good place leading up to this season. His quads in a former clip look solid and his edges in the footwork close ups are :swoon: Hopefully it all works out for him this season!

    From Genki at DTFF:

    A translation of what he says when being asked what was going on around the time of Worlds 2013, in which he miserably lost and placed at 6th. (around 4:25)

    "Well, I was so depressed. I was as depressed as I could be. I was really, really depressed. Despite the confidence, despite the feeling that I felt that I could do it, I could not do it. I was very much shocked and also the frustration made the situation even worse. I believe that the worst thing was the frustration that I felt."

    Then he started to analyze himself, why he was so frustrated.
    " I think I was putting up front. I may have been worried too much over how other people think about me. Then I reached this conclusion. Maybe I do not have to put up front anymore."

    In the circumstance that mass media tended to sensationalize the change of generation, Dai found that he was worrying too much.

    I'm really excited to see this routine. Something that isn't dramatic or bombastic, but possibly romantic and even lyrical. That's a rare direction for a Mens skater to go in for the Olympics. I think his routines will be a change of pace from what we'll see from the majority.

    Hmmm... I couldnt tell what was from the new program other than a quad attempt and some stroking. Lots of footage of other programs. But we will see it soon!

    Only a few seconds (1:20 through 1:28) from "Come Together" with tango arrangement.

    I had the pleasure of viewing Daisuke's "Beatles" program at Japan Open via youtube, and though he's charismatic as usual, I feel this program does not do him justice, especially during the Olympic year. jmho. However, I am confident he can make a masterpiece out of anything, so am not too worried. :)

    That's a dangerous program. It's one of those that if executed with maximum technical skills and extreme artistic sensitivity will get everyone on their feet screaming and cheering and all the juges smiling and hello gold medal. But if any of the tecnique is slacked off, if any artistic expression is perceived as applied rather than genuine, bye-bye podium. It's tricky to pull off especially in Olympic year. But if anyone can, it's Dai. I hope he does it. I'd love to see him atop the podium:)

    Was I the only one who was disappointed that "Back in the USSR" wasn't one of the Beatles songs used in the programme? :shuffle:

    It would have been better than Yesterday! Oh the irony of that song, substitute 'quad' instead of 'she'

    Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
    Now it looks as though they're here to stay
    Oh, I believe in yesterday

    Suddenly I'm not half the man I used to be
    There's a shadow hanging over me
    Oh, yesterday came suddenly

    Why she had to go
    I don't know, she wouldn't say
    I said something wrong
    Now I long for yesterday

    Yesterday love was such an easy game to play
    Now I need a place to hide away
    Oh, I believe in yesterday

    Why she had to go?
    I don't know, she wouldn't say
    I said something wrong
    Now I long for yesterday

    Yesterday love was such an easy game to play
    Now I need a place to hide away
    Oh, I believe in yesterday


    Mann... i am so depressed after watching this program after i have been looking forward to it for months. Clearly I think too much.. now I long for yesterday....
