    I associate certain pieces of music with certain skaters. It means (to me) whenever I hear that music, I think of that skater and/or that particular performance, even though others have skated to that music.

    Here is my list:

    Lady Caliph, Valse Sentimentale, Meditation from Thais- Berezhnaya & Sikharulidze
    Moonlight Sonata, Reverie, The man I love - Gordeeva Grinkov
    Libestraum - Mishkutionok & Dmitriev
    Love Story- Sale & Pelletier

    As time goes by - Kurt Browning
    The Story of my life- Brian Orser
    Rhapsody in Blue - Ilia Kulik
    Don Quixote- John Curry

    Bach's Air on a G string- Klimova & Ponomarenko
    Bolero - Torville & Dean
    Masquerade Waltz- Krylova & Ovssianikov

    How did I forget Winter by Yagudin and Sex Bomb by Plushenko? Same with Michelle's Lyra Angelica.

    For Die Fledermaus I always think of G&G's 1989 worlds LP skate. It was perfect.

    Not really a single piece of music, but every time a dance team skates to a tango, I immediately think of G&P's amazing "Libertango" program, especially the footwork sequence. :swoon:

    Thanks, Vash01. That just reminded me that Michelle also performed to Winter. It was her Exhibition program during the 1997 Worlds Championships.

    She choreographed that lovely program herself; in memory of Harris Collins, who died during that year's COI tour.

    Michelle's Winter music was different from Yagudin's, but they were both great programs.
