    I don't care for that music, but I LOVE Takahashi's interpretation of it.

    Blues for Klook is GORGEOUS! sensual, chill, and -dare I say - orgasmic and when someone like Takahashi interprets it... Oh yeah!

    Sometimes, professed hate is thinly masked lurve.

    I actually rather like the music but not for skating.

    If it was anyone but Takahashi, the program would be terrible. Luckily he can make any music good.

    He could skate to 4:30 of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5i3an89TvBI
    And make it amazing.

    I hate Blues for Klook too, but it's grown on me, thanks to Takahashi's skating. He works almost anything.

    Usova and Zhulin, Lucinda Ruh, and now Takahashi have done AMAZING things with this music. Takahashi's choreography captures the phrasing and nuance of this music perfectly.

    On the other hand, when bad skaters decide to use it, it seems interminable.

    I can think of other pieces of music more deserving of hate than this one.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    Yeah, Requiem for a Dream and Bolero are millions of points ahead in my hate book

    Yup, "Klook" and "Requiem/Dream" are two of the worst pieces of skating music ever.

    at the thread title.

    I caught Daisuke's LP last night and . IMO he's the last of the great male stylists (at least for now). He makes me miss Lambiel and Buttle just a tiny bit less.

    I've had a love/hate relationship with this piece of music ever since U&Z skated to it (another performance). At times I find it annoying and weird yet other times like others, it is perfectly sensual, sexy and slinky. ITA that with the right choregraphy it can make for a memorable competitive or exhibition piece.

    Actually, I feel the same way about Requiem for a Dream. It depends on the choregraphy and how good of an interpretation the skater gives. C&O's LP at 2007 U.S. Nationals is still a favorite of mine.

    I love Requiem for a Dream and Blues for Klook. Both on the MP3 player.

    RFAD in ice dance was one of the reasons why the ISU passed the "uplifting" rule, wasn't it?

    I don't care for that genre. I first heard "Blues for Klook" years ago when Bulgarian gymnast Silvia Mitova used it for her floor routine. It was very different from the norm at that time as far as gymnastics choreo and music. Quite unique but I still didn't care for the music. Still don't.
