    ...these programs!!

    so happy season is finally starting, to get me going I got hooked up on youtube, it was so much fun. I have no idea how many times I've seen these on my old VHSs, but I'll keep playing them forever! of course, I guess there's many more I could have chosen, but tonight....these are the ones!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnoRJ8gZpZU
    Nathalie Krieg 94 olympics SP As the river runs through it
    to me, this girl is the best spinner ever! and this program is so delightfully choreographed, perfect for her, she has speed and joy and even lands her 3t.
    love how she moves with the music, so soft and yet so bursting with energy!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qqHEd0Bq9o&feature=related
    Xue Shen & Hongbo Zhao LP worlds 2003 Turandot
    this is beyond words, I'm still crying watching it. every move is perfectly fitted with the music. the way he touches her face, so gently, and how they look at each other...it sends shivers down my spine. true beauty!!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyoSJKjZums
    Alexei Yagudin SP worlds 2000 Nutrocker
    I could have chosen any Yagudin-program really, but right now I'm hooked on this one. the height of that flying sit spin is out of this world! Yagudin-energy I miss these days.... choreo is so Yags, still there was something new every year!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ugffu2RFKs
    Natalia Mishkutenok & Artur Dmitrev 94 olympics FS Rach no.2
    How could they not win??? they were robbed, and I love Katia & Sergei so much as well! Artur is THE pair skater, love him to death. what a perfect, perfect, perfect program, who need any other Rach anyway! the ending is SO FAB!!!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4NF1W6J084&feature=related
    Irina Slutskaya FS worlds 2005 Wonderland
    for her to skate like that, under so much preassure, and win the gold at home...I cried, again lol

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GHkooSjKNo&feature=related
    Kyoko Ina & John Zimmerman 2002 olympics FS Rapsody on a theme by Paganini
    she looks so happy when she appears from under his arms during the combo/carry lift, love them!!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ja-YefLRRMg
    Stanick Jeannette Euros 2003 FS Le petit prince
    If you don't bother to watch any of the other videos...watch this one!! I wish there was a video with better quality and without the crazy annoying commentator who never keeps silent....but still, it's my Stanick! to me, he's one of the best skaters ever, and I know it makes no sense, but I don't care about anything else when I see this program. he won the bronze, with Plushy first and Joubert second...I don't care about any of them! this is the program. it is so different, so Stanick, so french, so much emotions and the jumps are amazing. I was there in the arena, and when he finished I was on my feet, crying, waving my french flag that I brought only for Stanick. anybody else who miss him??? (lot of rambling, but awwww so sweet...)

    Small Fairy, I love that Le Petit Prince program as well, and was thrilled to see him skate it once (not at Euros, unfortunately). Mesmerizing!!!

    What a great thread! Thanks all 3 of you for posting links. I know I'll enjoy watching these.

    The only one I saw in person was Shen and Zhao 2003, and I remember that when I later watched the tape I noticed that the TV did not come close to capturing how really really LOUD the crowd was! That performance still gives me chills!

    Oh, SmallFairy, thank you so much for these wonderful memories of my two favorite pairs! Both of them...how did you know? :D

    Xue and Hongbo never cease to amaze me with that performance. Unbelievably beautiful interpretation! They just dragged all of us onto the ice with them...happily.

    Artur and Natalia...well what can one say? Perfection...simply perfection.

    If only I could find Xue and Hongbo's Grand Pas de Deux, life would be complete. :lol:

    Thanks again...and again...and again!!!

    Simply beautiful ... and seemingly forgotten ... lost in the sewer of subsequent events. They seemed so comfortable, floating over the ice toward their destiny. Alas, they were too tight in the long program -- was the warm-up bump a factor in their tightening up? Dare I say that if B/S had skated with the same ease and abandon in delivering their gorgeous long program ... figure skating may well have remained under the 6.0 system? Or perhaps not ... perhaps another scandal would have been ripe for happening and the change would yet have come. Or, maybe, change might have come without a scandal, more slowly, more judiciously and with less gut-wrenching repercussions.

    Thanks for sharing this memory of B/S at their best ...

    I've always enjoyed skating, but it was Sasha's 2006 Olympic SP and LP that made me really love it. Beautiful! I still watch them quite often.

    I couldn't agree more, those are also among my faves!! Stanicks Rondo Capriccioso was amazing, so happy he won the bronze! and wheeee for Euros in Bratislava 2001, that's were I first saw Stanick and became an instant fan!
    and...I'm in the video lol lol:D I'm the girl in the pink sweater in front of the french flag, bottom right corner at 4.48 totally nostalgic now:watch:

    Stanicks Rondo is so funky and so totally different from my other Rondo C. favourite:

    Mikkeline Kirkgaard worlds 2000 LP

    what a special, special talent! I'll forever kick the danish skating feds ass for not supporting her properly! what a waste, who cares about the harder triples when the girl can move and skate and do a layback spin like that??


    and btw thanks to everybody for all the great links!!

    But we are not talking " best", we are talking " favorites"... Jeremy's 2008-9 LP to me is the most musically brilliant piece of choreography of- maybe- all time ( for me, I hurry to add), and in GPF Jeremy did that choreography complete justice. Of course he grew as a skater last year and his National performances were sensational- but just personally for me, when I need to watch something which deeply touches me- I go to GPF 2008.

    I saw you this time ;)

    ITA. She was such a talent. IMO kind of like a more charismatic version of Lepisto. So much grace and musicality, and fantastic skating skills. I never knew why she couldn't get the support she deserved. She was only 15 or 16 when she gave up singles. I think she could've eventually gotten her flip and lutz if she kept trying.
    Such an innovative program. I remember being :wideeyes: when I watched this program for the first time. If people thought the likes of Sandhu or Cohen are wasted talent because they didn't achieve as much as they could have, Smalun must be just heartbreaking. With all his talent and cool programs he remained practically unknown throughout his entire career.
