    The U&Z video I believe is from a commissioned set of instructional ice dance videos? I think by the ISU, but it could be a federation??
    It was the 2nd official ISU video.

    Hmm, Weird Al Yankovic has some polka songs like "polka face"

    This lists some of the songs he has turned in Polka.

    OK, now you and Doris have made me really afraid. I like the Yankee Polka, but as a SD it could make this year's SD look stellar in comparison. Seriously, I never really got into the majority of the programs with the mess of music cuts and the difficulty of doing Latin on ice, but the Yankee can end up being much worse IMO.

    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Hearing Yankee Polka with March and Waltz as acceptable accompanying rhythms. For Juniors, Blues with HipHop and Jive.

    Thanks! Blues and HipHop could be great for seniors. And jumping polka will be great for young skaters.

    What made this choice really off was that only two of the various YP CD music possibilities sound very Western. The others are pretty standard Euro polka music, so the cowboy gear does not work at all.

    Here's one of my favorites - Grishuk/Platov from 97.

    Meryl and Charlie did an absolutely fantastic Yankee Polka the year it was used for Nationals. I thought they should have beaten Tanith and Ben in that segment.

    Wow -- you see that and realize just how good G&P were. Their extensions match so beautifully even as they're bouncing along. Thanks for putting up the link.

    Compare "Davis&White" to G&P. They're not in the same league at all, and probably will never be since they do not challenge themselves, never have and probably never will.

    G&P were just ... one of a kind. I am still waiting for skaters to be as good as they were to appear. And I don't think I will in some time.
