    Has anybody ever skated to Aerosmith's "Dream On"?

    So I just saw a preview clip for next week's Glee that features Aerosmith's "Dream On" and it just struck me that this would be an awesome FD. Has anybody ever used it before?

    If not, who do you think would do a great interpretation? I think Virtue/Moir could totally pull it off, and I think Lang/Tchernyshev also would've done a great job with it.

    Todd Gilles skated his FD to it a few years back - I think with his former partner Tina (?) Pratt.

    Nice program- I remember liking it a lot.
    I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

    That would be awesome, especially if they used the older version when Steven Tyler still had his voice.

    Love Aerosmith, but I strongly dislike Glee so I'm sad they're gonna sing it.

    Yes, that's what I meant to say in my original post. I love the original Aerosmith version; the Glee version, not so much.

    It's not a competition program, but the Stars on Ice finale a few years back was to Dream On. I agree that it's nice skating music.

    Again, not a competition piece, but four of the Dancing on Ice (UK) Pros did in 2008 on tour.

    I had freeskate music picked out for next year.

    Spoiler



    I'm not using it now because it's supposed to be on Glee next week too. Based on the instant popularity of anything that show does, I don't want to risk it showing up with the same song as a million other people. Guess I'll stick with my current program- Bette Midler's "I think it's going to rain today".

    I don't think D/W ever skated to it. I know Pratt/Gilles did, about 5 years ago, I think. Maybe they were the team you saw? I can't remember if they ever competed at SC.

    Anyone have a vid of Pratt/Gilles skating it?

    Seems to be several versions of SOI’s finale on YouTube.

    I didn't see SOI in person that year, but I distinctly remember the finale (on TV).

    The Dancing on Ice routine mentioned above.

    (I don't really know that much about this show - will have to check out more vids. Maybe it'll help with the skating withdrawal.)

    And this song is a favorite of a fave skater of mine. Maybe she’ll skate an exhibition to it.

    Yes, as you may have guessed, I like the song - the lyrics aren't super great, but there's something haunting about it overall.

    I don't remember Davis & White skating to it but I think they would do a good job if they did, because they did a good job with David Cook's remake of Billie Jean. I also think Kurt Browning could do it well. :-)

    I'd like to see someone interpret Danny Gokey's version of the song.

    Just watch Pratt/Gilles Dream on FD from 2006 NHK - it was really cool FD and they had brilliant tango in that season. Sad, they was split just after this competition

    They must have because I remember seeing someone skate to it when I was there, and I swore it was D/W but it could have been P/G. I remember thinking it was really quite good.

    I think someone should skate to the Glee version ! Mr. Shu did a killer rendition of "Dream On" last night on the show

    Loved that finale and ever since then, when I hear "Dream On", I think "skating".

    I think that was the year that Christopher Dean was doing the choreography for the group numbers.

    Yep, and some irony given your username that they had snow come down at the end of the number!
