    I just tried to buy Jesse Cook's Fragile (thanks Katia) but that song is only available if I buy the album. Poo.

    I thought I'd share this with those who may be interested. In late 2009/early 2010, IFS magazine had a full page advertisement for 2 CDs, which I bought. One is called "Sounds of Vancouver 2010" (music from the opening ceremony) and "Dance! - The World's Favourite Ice-Skating Music. Being the music fan that I am, I had to get both of them, and am glad I did. Let me comment in particular on the "Dance" CD. It is a 2 CD set that includes lots of classical pieces that have been used in figure skating, and it's nice to have them in all together in one collection (even if you have these all over the place in other CDs). The listings don't indicate who skated to what, but many of you will know that already.

    Disc #1
    1. Khachaturian - Masquerade
    2. Morricone - Gabriel's Oboe (from "The Mission")
    3. Gershwin - concerto in F
    4. Williams - Schindler's List
    5. Tchaikovsky - Swan Lake
    6. Waldteufel - Skaters' Waltz
    7. Khachaturian - Sabre Dance
    8. Minkus - Don Quixote
    9. Stravinsky - Infernal Dance
    10 . Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata
    11. Mascagni - Intermezzo
    12. Piazzolla - Libertango
    13 - 15. Bizet - Carmen
    16. Trad. Russian - Dark Eyes (I guess the abbreviation in the liner notes stands for "Traditional")
    17. Liszt - Totentanz
    18. Ravel - Bolero

    Disc #2
    1. Strauss II - Die Fledermaus
    2. Gershwin - Rhapsody in Blue
    3. Puccini - Nessum Dorma
    4. Rachmaninov - Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
    5. Massenet - Meditation
    6. Norman - The James Bond Theme
    7. Rachmaninov - Prelude in C Sharp Minor
    8. Gardel -Por Una Cabeza
    9. Shostakovich - Romance
    10. Saint-Saens - Danse Macabre
    11. Saint- Saens - The Swan
    12. Hulic - 'Leelous' Tune
    13. Debussy - Clair de Lune
    14. Khachaturian - Adagio of Spartacus & Phrygia
    15. Monti - Csardas
    16. Chopin - Nocturne No. 2 in E Flat
    17. Herman - Mack & Mabel

    I never liked Elvis, but adored some of his musical choices, especially "the Ghost and the Darkness", "1942" and "Dragon"
    Other soundtracks I can think of are
    - Legends of the Fall (Brian Boitano, mid-nineties)
    - A River runs through it (Katarian Witt)
    - On Golden Pond (Rudy Galindo)
    - The Civil War (Todd`s "The Glory")
    - The Mission (Too many to mention...)
    - Far and away (Sargeant/Wirtz and others)
    - Backdraft (Mirko Eichhorn)
    - Rudy (Stefan Lindemann)
    - Scent of a Woman (again too many)
    - The Man in the Iron Mask (Takeshi Honda and others)
    - Durango (Ben Ferreira)
    - Dances with Wolves (Brasseur/Eisler)
    - East of Eden (Michelle Kwan)
    - Out of Africa (many...)

    Almost my entire classical collection (about 80 albums) have been bought after seeing someone skate to the music. Same for musicals (Which I strongly dislike, but some are great skating music) and some old classics like "That`s Entertainment" (had to buy it after Kurt used some of the music) or the music of Louis Armstrong, Neil Diamond, Ray Charles or Roy Orbison.

    One of my all-time favourites is "Flight" by Brian Lane Green - which I have never heard before Viktor Petrenko used it about ten years ago.

    Usually I don`t listen to Michael Bolton, but I purchased several of his albums because of skaters using it, i.e. Wylie and Petrenko.

    Andrea Bocelli - too many to mention...

    Plus masses of pop, rock and country albums, sometimes I think that about 90 percent of my collection was mostly purchased because it reminds me of one or several routines.

    I just placed a hold on The Mission Soundtrack at my local library. Have loved selections from that for years. And have found a few neighbouring libraries that have the movie, I'm sure I saw it years ago, but it'll be fun to watch it again knowing the music through figure skating.

    Legends of the Fall is another soundtrack that has music I love on it. Did Vanessa Gusmeroli skate to that?
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Not to nitpick, but I'm sure you meant to say 1492! BTW, original kudos to Hartshorn & Sweiding for skating to "1492."

    Andrea Bocelli - yes! - particularly the "Romanza" CD - "Time to Say Goodbye" (Roca & Sur, & probably others), "Il Mare Calmo de la Sera" & "Miserere" (Todd), plus some other selections from it that were used in the Bocelli Tribute show a few seasons ago.

    Todd's Gettysburg program (1994/95 & 1997/1998 seasons) is from the Gettysburg (movie) soundtrack. His "Glory" program (1999/2000) is based on a song called "The Glory" from a Broadway musical called "The Civil War." So, yes, they are two separate programs, one from a movie soundtrack, the other from a musical.

    Ooops, of course 1492 ;-) Yes, I alos loved the version of Hartshorn & Sweiding, was lucky enough to saw them performing it live twice.

    And thanks to Joe Sabovcik I own more Springsteen albums than the one I bought back in 1985!

    Plushenko would have inspired me to purchase "sex bomb" but it was already in my collection.

    The other night "The Man in the Iron Mask" was on TV, I didn't know, my sister was surfing and came across it...I was in my bedroom, so all I heard was the music...I'm like, "YAGS!" and scuttled out and now we're going to buy the movie because we only saw the end and got confused.


    Also, can I just rant about how annoying it is that Amazon MP3 only works in the US. What if you want to buy your music legally not on iTunes from outside? Really self-defeating there guys.

    EDIT: forgot to add, I also once recognized a trailer for the Godfather because my brain provided me with the mental video of Plushy skating. Yes, I am well aware that is sad!

    I bought the piano sheet music to Maria Butirskaya's "17 moments in spring" program, which I enjoy playing.

    Ne me quitte pas- Jacques Briel (D/L)

    Blower's Daughter - D/D ( I think I'm the only person that became a Damien Rice fan after hearing D/D's instrumental version. Thanks D/D. I couldn't stand the song before and was always flabbergasted why it was such a monster hit and why Rice was so famous. Now, of course I'm such an uber Rice fan)
