Probably my fave program ever is Torvill & Dean 'Encounter' from the 1994 World Team Championships always manages to bring a tear to my eye. It's stunning.
Bourne &Kraatz- 'Meet Her At The Love Parade' ( My fave FD they've done but often overlooked after it followed up 'Riverdance' and Shae was injured much of the season. This was their first performance of it & IMO their best http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LywDzZa3Xqo
Also pretty much anything by Stephane Lambiel, Jeff Buttle, Virtue & Moir and Drobiazko & Vanagas.

See that "Jupiter" piece? That's Mao. Masquerade? Bells? That's not Mao.
I wish she would turn that exhibition into a short program. It's flawless.
I also like her Liebestraume free. When skated it at 4CC, it was really pretty.
I see that this hasn't been mentioned, but as someone new to skating, I really hope you'd watch this program. It's so different from what everyone has done and one of those rare gems that should not be forgotten:
Stephane Rosenthal 2006 LP:
Thanks for your responses! I'm slowly making my way through them
I'm going to twizzle into a triple axel and spiral out of it.
