    I've been watching a Downton Abbey marathon on Netflix and I just love the music.

    I've always wanted Shizuka Arakawa to skate an exhibition program to Perfect Day by Miriam Stockley. It's unique, and I think she would pull it off beautifully.

    I REALLY hope that Yu-na keeps her Arirang LP... so much potential and it'd be a terrible shame to not see it performed to perfection. Hopefully, she'll continue competing next season, go through the GP series, and then bring it to life at next year's worlds. *crosses fingers*

    I have the same hope. I think her LP has the potential to be a masterpiece. I hope coming in second at this Worlds like a fire under her to want to next season.

    Ita. I feel like part of the reason some people were saying that it lacked the usual Yu-na spark was 1). her year off competitive skating and 2). she's in a transitional phase artistically speaking. I feel as if she's trying to express something deeper, something more soulful and meaningful than w/say last year's Gershwin and what we saw at Worlds was the awkward half-way stage- but there were nonetheless flashes of the brilliant masterpiece it could be such as the footwork sequence (which I was tearing up over).

    Even this flawed Arirang was a beauty. I really do love it and I think she did deserve to win the PCS over Ando. The music cuts are gorgeous and her overall movements just seem to be more precise and balletic. With a bit more training and mileage with this program, I think it could become a classic.

    I really love that suggestion. I'd be interesting to see him use it next season as a SP since Danse Macabre is such a contrast to Take Five.

    Absolutely. I especially love, love the second half of the program starting off with the haunting zither section transitioning into more familiar tune of Arirang to mark the end. Lutz right into flying sit spin was a particularly inspiring arrangement given the music.

    Alissa Czisny- The Light in the Piazza. The Overture to it rich with rolling harps and piano chords, and it sounds warm and golden. Perhaps it's a little too similar to Alissa's music for this year, and I'm not sure how it could be edited, but I think it's unique and different.

    I'd love to see a pairs team use the Nimrod variation from Elgar's Enigma Variations. It would be hard to edit though and would take a lot of power and intensity to pull it off.

    I wonder what cuts from the film score Ashley will be using:

    Although quite eerie, perhaps a skater and choreographer might be able to do something interesting to soundtracks by Bernard Herrmann to A Hitchcock's Vertigo and Psycho.

    Going through some of my older music, I found a (albeit cheesy pop) song that I would freaking *LOVE* to see an exhibition program done to (hell, if Cotton Eye Joe and Barbie Girl can be done, so can this ). This was way more popular in Europe than it ever was in the US, so it may be familiar to some here:

    Betty Boo - "Doin' the Do"

    I'd love to see Alissa take a stab at it.

    That's so lovely, oleada. I can see Alissa skating when I listen ...

    Might be great to use for an exhibition.

    Nice thread. I have a very short list right now, as I am in a hurry, but there are some pieces that I absolutely love to see skaters use.

    Smetana's Moldeau/Ma Vlast is one of my favorite pieces of music. It will be good for a pair.

    Barber's adagio for strings (used by Matt Savoie in 2006, I think) is such a lovely piece. I think a skater like Mao Asada will look very good skating to it.

    Rustle of spring (can't remember the composer) is another good music for a singles SP.

    Since ice dance rules don't allow sad music anymore, that takes away a few from my list. I would like to see some Bollywood music used in ice dance since there is more freedom there. Davis & White did a fantastic job with that kind of music.

    I am not well versed in pop/Jazz, etc. so it is hard for me to list any. I do like movie soundtracks, and could list a few in another post (later).

    Someone has to skate an over the top gala routine to Paul and Storm's "Fuzzy Man", ridiculously literal outfit required: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AcfaItygU4M
