We're at 1000 posts! Time for a new (hopefully pani-free) thread
Do we have a title picked out already?
"Notre" High Hopes or Excitement for the New Season?
"Randy [Starkman (1960-April 16, 2012)] lived by the same motto as the rest of us. The Olympics isn’t every four years, it’s every single day. He just got it." --Canadian Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden
Didn't we have two picked out at the end of the last thread? Now I don't remember what the other one was. We could do something about waiting impatiently for the season. I just can't think of anything clever. Lol.
The problem with Notre Dame is that it was a musical that was played on the radio A LOT in some countries. Like most pop songs, you get sick of it after a couple of months. Imagine if they were doing a Titanic program. I don't know how many ice dancers skated to Titanic, but I would scream if I heard that music again.
My thing with Notre Dame is that it was so popular about 8 years ago in figure skating and then it's kind of been forgotten. It's been several years since I saw anyone use it, so it would be kind of interesting to see it again and it would be interesting to know how it ended up getting chosen since it's not hot right now.
It was insanely popular in France and in Quebec 10-15 years ago. The English version never got the same success. I am curious to see if Zoueva will pick French versions of Notre Dame or Carmen. But I have heard Notre Dame so many times in skating rink that it feels like West Side Story now.
French skaters still use it. Here is the latest Esmeralda:
I would be SOOO happy if it would be Notre Dame! I LOVE this music and I don´t care how many skaters used it before. It would be great for them. The music would fit their style I think. It could be more like S&D. And this is my favourite FP so far...
I agree with this absolutely.But I suspect the programs will speak for themselves.
As for Meryl/Charlie and 'Notre Dame', I think it's a very good choice for them. Probably not so new in the sense that it really feels so them, but we can't ask for everything. And if that's what they have wanted to skate to for a long time, then it's almost a guaranty for a really good program.
Is Meryl and Charlie's choice even confirmed or are we just speculating based on rumors again?
But if true, I'm VERY excited about this!!! Notre Dame seems a perfect choice for them, they've always been good at dramatic but now they're also capable of showing much more depth to the story... and yay for going back to storytelling. Can't wait!!!!
It's close enough to the Celine song, but much more moving. I wouldn't mind people skate to music like this (if it was "skateable" to, no idea if it is).
Ok, since no one is making a new thread, I'm going to go ahead and do it.
