    I remember attending Junior Worlds in Brisbane back in 1995, and it seemed like every other lady skated to that music. I think it's time to retire DQ.

    I loved the one Katarina Witt did a few years back. Wish I could find a video of it.

    I liked Yukari Nakano's version a few years ago

    I'd say John Curry followed by M/D (Dmitriev was fab, but Mishkutenok as Kitri?! )and I/K.

    Everyone who skates to DQ has to do the raise the one arm in air and the other hand on the hip thing at every punctuation in the music.

    Best - John Curry, without a doubt.

    Glad to see Curry has the largest percentage by far. I couldn't bring myself to vote for anybody else, it's that good.

    Just like Samson, Plushy drew his over-the-top cockiness and strength from the length of his mullet

    More than a decade ago someone posted a hilarious skating parody set to the tune, "The Hokey Pokey." I can only remember the first verse but it went something like this.

    Strike a pose.
    Put your hand on your hip.
    Stick your hand in the air and wave it all about.
    You do the Don Quixote and flail around.
    That's what it's all about.

    I agree. that was AMAZING !
    This is the first time I watch it and I'm impressed. Of course, I knew he was a phenomenal skater, but in this video, he shows style, elegance and musicality.

    Tiffany used this piece a lot as the majority of her programs were essentially the same three pieces of music pasted together in different variations.

    I voted for Mish/Dmitriev, but I also really like I/K's FD - it gets better every time I see it. I/K and M/D are without doubt my 2 fav DQs.

    I guess it's politically correct to vote for Curry. Cleanness of line, use of the music etc and all excellent. But I voted for M & D.

    Watched them both live doing their DQ. John Curry at 1975 Brit nationals and M&D in 1992 Olympics. The pair had a greater effect on me. Perhaps I wasn't the least bit bit mature in 1975 (and that would be on the money).

    John Curry was a lovely skater.... and I always felt a little bit bored. (a politically incorrect comment).

    I liked action. Triple jumps were becoming more common throughout the mens field in the mid 70's. It was exciting and new. First the men, then the women, then pairs. Barriers and boundaries started tumbling.

    Dorothy Hamill was the last woman to win Olympics without a triple if I recall correctly. A lot happened technically in the mid 70's. Certainly the short program was invented by the late 70's.

    The sport came out of the dark ages .......... and contemporary music became popular - maybe not for the judges, but it was a preferred choice for the young people who were competing.

    there's my thoughts - FWTAW
