Not Gangnam Style
Finally just watched their freedance at NHK and what a great program and skate. I got chills at one part. V&M and D&W are stunning teams and whoever stands on top have programs that deserve to win.
What would people like to see D/W do for an exhibition?
If they're never going to do Beethoven's 7th, Rach 2, or Tristan & Isolde, I would love to see these as an exhibition, even if they're on the serious side.
Or Meryl could finally get her Beauty & the Beast tv show theme program.
In more popular music, I love Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know", it seems fitting for D/W.
I'd love any of those or Beethoven's 7th or Keane's "A Bad Dream." I'll even take a reprise of Eleanor Rigby or Samson & Delilah.
I'd like to see the ghosts of programs that never made it past Champs camp
Amelie Waltz OD
La Strada FD
Oops, I meant Beethoven's 7th! Fixed.
I too would love to see the lost programs or reprisals of old ones. D/W wouldn't have to pay anyone for new choreography either.
I agree with the first two. I had to read your response again because I thought I read "Ghost"
I'd love to see a Sting medley.
Fountains of Rome by Respighi
I'm still hoping that one day, someone will put together a program (exhibition or not) to Central Park from the King Kong 2005 soundtrack. It's my absolute favorite soundtrack of all time and this song is just so beautiful and depressing all at once. I'd be openly weeping the entire time.
Since we've discussed Florence + The Machine so much, I'd love to see them do All This and Heaven Too or Carry On by fun. (But then, these are two of my absolute favorite songs right now so I'm being a bit selfish)
"Volcano" by Damien Rice.
Oh yes, I would love to see them do "Somewhere Only We Know"...it is a good choice for them because of the criticisms they get about "connection". Eye of the beholder, imo, because I see a stronger connection in Notre Dame. I love how Meryl and Charlie strive to address their weaknesses and work so hard to improve always. They don't get enough credit for that around this forum (except on this thread of course).
I think it would be really cool if there was a way for them to end the dance with her in his arms/lap...I was thinking back to one of Tanith and Ben's FDs.
It already looks improved to me in Someone Like You too! I am ready for a new exhibition, but the performance in this one still gets better each time.
This is just what I was thinking of! It shows togetherness.
Yeah I don't understand how their working on their weakness could ever be a criticism. It's mystifying.
I also think this song would be awesome. I think it addresses how private they are. It's obvious to anyone that they love each other and think highly of each other and are very close. It's the level at which they're comfortable putting their personal feelings and connection on the ice for show that I think they struggle with. They've always shown connection in interviews when they're just being themselves. I remember when Charlie said something nice about Meryl after they won Gold at Worlds and she just had that little suppressed smile. I just don't think they're naturally show-ey people. Even Charlie, he may be or have been more outgoing than Meryl, but that's only in comparison. I think they're both private people. Meryl may have even rubbed off on him. Either way it's not a crime and they are working on it.
Yes, that would be a good way of portraying it.
Japanese fans are awesome. This is so neat
Oh, it's really beautiful)))
I love the changes in FD - it's still not my favourite but I was really enjoying it especially their confidence on the ice I missed at SA.
I always wanted Grease for their EX)
Or this song
I mean, they're working so had on their emotional connection, why can't they also have some fun?)))
Oh my, I can't believe I'll see them live in less than two weeks...
They performed that much better than at SA.
Watching their SD reaffirms my love for the polka section. The rest of the dance is good, but the polka selection at the end really ends that program with a bang. That was a brilliant choice.
i agree with seeing them do a fun exhibition for once
I know this makes me a terrible fan, but I'll never ever stop wanting them to an exhibition to this: http://youtu.be/nwZEcdBMLLU
That's my favorite song and favorite part of the movie. Not sure how it would look on ice, but it's one of the most adorable scenes on film!
Thanks for the link. That is breath taking...and loved the commentary.
I think it is the best FD of the season.
The RAI sport commentators seems to really like Meryl and Charlie's FD from NHK. Can anyone translate some of what they say? I think all DW fans would be interested!
I'd love to hear what the Italian commentators were saying.
I'd like to hear what the Russian commentators were saying, too.
I seldom listen to them but I did that for you.
*Damn, this bell in the dance really mezmerizes me...*
Tha commentator on Спорт admired their technique which lets them make all the elements on a great speed and he thinks it was a wonderful performance.
I heard a funny story about Eurosport commentators. One of them is a big fan of V/M and really dislikes Meryl and Charlie. He said they're good technically but don't put their soul in their dance and don't tell a story there.
The second one, though, said that he would make a standing ovation with the audience.))
3 days with Alex Wong can make that much difference to a program???? WOW. All the dancers should hire him as soon as possible!
The bells were a stroke of genius for sure
I really don't think it was only Alex, after all, they had 5 weeks to improve the program.) But he definitely did a great job.
Yes, I'm sure you're right. But that's about the most improvement I've ever seen in a program in that short a time. Remarkable!
