    Oh, I forgot to mention also Mao Asada's Clair de Lune SP at 2009 World Team Trophy. It was probably the first Level 4 she received for her steps (or maybe the second?).
    The whole program is a pure beauty and she really was feeling the music during the step sequence. Great interpretation of the music.
    It was probably because it was after she succeeded in landing her opening 3A-2T (It is breathtaking! You can enjoy it as well!) in SP for the first time as a lady. She must have been extremely nervous before she went for it. You can tell it by her face before she started skating.

    I love most of D&W's not-touching step sequences (particularly Bollywood, their tango OD from their first year in Seniors, and this year's circular step in the SD from the GPF), and V&M's step sequences in hold, if ice dance is included (particularly in Mahler, but I love the Funny Face steps too).

    That's Mao's best SP performance, and program for me. I prefer her performance at Worlds. Even with a mistake on lutz, there was something quite beautiful, special sentiment in it.

    ??? IIRC Mao's never received level four at Worlds. Exquisite one, though.

    I love almost all Carolina Kostner's step seq! You have already posted some of them but I would like to add these:

    World '09 sp: I thought it was gorgeous!

    World 2010 fp: I was at the arena that day and every time I see it gives me goosebumps! There was so much noise, all screaming "vai caro!" in the moment of silent just before the steps and her smile..cannot ask for something better!

    I always love Daisuke Takahashi and I think these two are the best step seq he's ever done:
    World fp '11: so much energy! I love it!!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opWW2...ailpage#t=512s

    Gpf '11 fp: so sexy!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opWW2...ailpage#t=512s

    And I cannot believe nobody mentioned this one from Javier!

    At the risk of getting told off by half of the people on this thread, the circualr step sequence from Patrick Chan's POTO FS is one of my absolute faves.

    I always loved Jeff Buttle's as well, especially the ones from the SP and FS he used at worlds in 2008.

    Another one of my faves was Joannie Rochette's from her 2010 FS. I always thought it matched the music really well.

    As for pairs, I find most team's SBS footwork to look a little laboured. I can't think of a standout.

    In dance, I love V/M's footwork so much that I won't even try to pick a favourite.

    When I think of musicality, though, Weaver/Poje always come to mind. I've always admired how they accentuate every beat of the music when they're doing a footwork sequence. My particular fave is non touching sequence from their 2011 SD.

    Edit: Gee, do you think I'm Canadia, eh?

    Don't think you'd be criticized for loving Chan's footwork. Even those who dislike him acknowledge his strength there. From his programs, it would be the choreographed step sequence from POTO, the two he does in Aranjuez, the Take Five one, and his glorious Exilados duo that stick out the most.

    Lambiel's footwork in "Poeta" is sublime. Also, have to admit - Worlds 2007, the camerwork for that was AMAZING. It managed to contribute to the feeling of a journey - especially the first one (and I also love that the audience was like "to hell with clapping on the rythm, this is too awesome). The whole sequence from loop to double axel, and then the footwork-spin-spin finale.... gosh.
