    I love that music too, hasn't Zhang once had a sp to 'The Hours'? It's a lovely piece of music.

    I absolutely adore the 'Doors Concerto' by Nigel Kennedy. He is amazing and that interpretation of 'The Doors' music is my favorite. This year a male skater is performing to one piece from that cd. I especially loved what Kennedy did with 'Light my fire' and 'Riders in the Storm' and often imagined various skaters performing to them:

    Christina Gao's 2009-10 short program music was "Morning Passages" from The Hours.

    Oh, it was Gao not Zhang. Thank you for the correction.

    ...No-one, however, will ever match the epic that was the costume. GIRAFFE?!?!?!?



    (If anyone can ever explain the giraffe shirt to me, please do!)
    Didn't Ilia once say his mom made the shirt?

It's such a pretty score, and it'd be so interesting.
    After 'Witches of Eastwick' I think Mirai could pull of 'Harry Potter'! She pulled off the 'Pirates' themed SP fantastically well.

    I think I read somewhere, years ago, that the person who designed the shirt told Tarasova that that print was in fashion during those years (that is the years in the story that music is portraying, not the '90s ). There is a funny article on that called 'The mystery of Ilia Kulik's shirt' on this website:

    It isn't meant to be evil, just a fun joke and not meant to hurt anyone, otherwise I wouldn't post the link here.

    "The Motorcycle Diaries" soundtrack has some fabulous music, particularly the overture nand "La Salida De Lima". It would work nicely for a Pairs SP:

    I am listening to Philip Sheppard tracks at the moment. He is a UK musician/composer who does a lot of soundtrack work.

    This track is how I first discovered him.

    Check out his Soundcloud page (some free downloads are included, the ones that display a 'down' arrow).

    ETA: And you heard his arrangements of the national anthems during the London olympics.

    One of the guys (Verner? Joubert?) should use the Hawaii 5-0 theme for an SP:
