    Don Quixote

    I know some think it's been done to death but I was quite happy to watch both Irina and Sarah skate to it at the same Worlds!

    Despite overused, I always like listening to Boléro.

    For the most part, if I love the music, a program using it works for me. I was going to say that Turandot always works, but then I remembered that I was completely unmoved by Kimmie's version everytime... Otherwise, though, I always love the routine.

    Rota's R & J... so far, no matter who skates to it, even if more than one skater uses it in a season, I always enjoy it. I loved a few seasons ago when McBru used it (and I think someone else did, too that season) & someone else used the Tchaikovsky version. I was thrilled

    Phantom of the Opera, again I can't think of a time when I didn't enjoy the program.

    Good topic! I wouldn't be surprised if some skaters' reading this might take some suggestions, lol!

    PS Thought of more: any Rachmoninoff and Polavetsian Dances (sp??).

    Did you see Takahashi's 2006-07 long program (judging by your signature, you might like that one )?

    I meant to add "anything Puccini" (with the caveat of the aforementioned Meissner program). I wish "Madame Butterfly" was used even more often! The aria from that is my fave, fave, fave!

    I wouldn't say that for myself. I would say that if I love the music, at least I will enjoy some part of the experience of watching and listening to it, even if the skater doesn't make it work for him/her.

    And then there's Don Quixote, which often works for the skaters because it's often used by skaters who were inspired by how well John Curry made it work for him and try to follow in his footsteps . . . er, tracings.

    But I find the music really hackneyed . . . although easy to phrase movement to, because it was designed to be danced to.

    I did like the music cuts in this version.

    It's even more fabulous when paired with "Send in the Clowns". Ah Tonya...good times, good times.

    Oh, I just thought of another piece that I always enjoy: Danse Macabre.

    Some of the programs are more macabre than others.
