    Crone & Poirier's Eleanor Rigby: The Beatles as choreographed by Christopher Dean. It doesn't get any better than that.

    Michelle Kwan, "A Day in the Life," Jeff Beck version.

    This is the best quality video even though she fell at Nationals 2000. She had trouble with the triple toe again at Worlds. But it's still a beautiful program and a haunting version of this melody:

    Coming on to post re: Kim and Brent, loved that program. Saw it in Hartford in 06 and I teared up, it was wonderful!

    Actually, the jump she had a wonky landing on in the 2000 Worlds short program was the triple flip. :)

    Were it on YouTube, I would have posted a link to the 1999 Skate America version instead.

    Thanks so much manleywoman, for posting that link to Kim's and Brent's great performance. Miss them. They always seemed to give and receive so much enjoyment through their skating. Watching Kim and Brent just now, I am struck by their distinctive quality of giving and joyous enthusiasm in performing together that I also see somewhat similarly in Gilles/ Poirier.

    Yep. I was there in Cleveland for her fall in the SP -- and as :yikes: I was by that (right below where my group was sitting), I commented that one good thing about that was we no longer would have to hear about Kwan "playing safe" with an easier jump in the SP because that would be the last time we'd ever see her use a 3T there. And it was.
    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.

    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?

    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

    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.

    And here it is:

    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.
